I am developing an off line HealthVault application in python (Django).
I communicate with HealthVault via the raw xml interfaces.
I would like to define AppSpecificInfo such as:
I would like to be able to subscribe to changes in such AppSpecificInfo - using SubscribeToEvent. Is that possible? if so what should be the info xml

You can find documentation and the schema for the application-specific thing type here. Let me know if this helps.

If I had reconfigured my app (on PPE) to be able to access ApplicationSpecificInfo, do I need to re-authorize it by the HV account owner?
I am asking because I get "access denied" status on my request to "put" new ApplicationSpecificInfo.

Can you share the AppID so I can take a look?

If nothing has changed, then you do not have to re-authorize. In your case, does it work if you re-authorize? By the way, your ActionURL gives me 502 error. Is there a reason why you *have to* use App Specific Info? Any data that you add in a HealthVault record of type "Application Specific type" will not be visible to other applications in the HealthVault ecosystem. You should not be using App Specific type to store data that has value in being shared among other apps.

I have not re-authorized yet. What changed is that I added App specific info to the app configuration (for off line access).
The reason I am using app specific for is to store special alerts info that are specific to my app. But I would like to have other apps share this info. So what would be the correct line of action?
Monday, December 17, 2012 10:04 PMThe reason my app url is giving 502 is that it is down for maintenance. If you need me to I will bring it back up.
Monday, December 17, 2012 10:12 PMIf you change anything in the configuration, the app needs to be re-authorized. You may want to look at all the available Thing Types and see if any of the built-in ones can substitute your app specific type.
No, I do not want to you to bring up your ActionURL. I just mentioned it while I saw it giving me 502.
