How can I launch an HTML5 application by specifying auid (application unique id)?

You can launch an HTML5 application with auid by using setActiveApp API in the following way.

  • HTTP Request URL:
    http://<IP Address>/sony/appControl
  • HTTP Request Body Example:
      "method": "setActiveApp",
      "params": [{
        "data": "",
        "uri": "localapp://webappruntime?auid=xxx"
      "version": "1.0",
      "id": 1

    (xxx is the application’s auid)


Authentication level of setActiveApp API is generic, so authentication is required to call this API.
