Hi Philip, Working via API is not something anyone can do. Also, it seem to me to be something for a measurement which was given quite some thought. The web UI allows novice users to do a quick test as a tool for faultfinding. No API knowledge needed. That is what I'm using Atlas for. Quick short tests from multiple points.
