Yes, you can change it to 5 mins (300s), but the image may take a bit more to get updated to a new status, so perhaps 10 or 15 minutes (600 - 900s) would be a better choice.

Thy for reply!!


Three more question XD, 


I cant change the meterData file Name?

i mean, the text file call "metedata.txt" but after i upload and try to download it in from website,

it changes the file name to targetName which is the string of var.



Can we download the image and meterdata throw VWS API?

I try the GetAllTargets.java but all of the result are IDs?

Can i download image and meterdate by IDs?



To delete a target, the target must be in "inactive" status.?

Can we change the status from any to inactive? active_flag = false?



plx give me some ideas .

thx :3

you cannot change the name of the metadata file that is downloaded from the TMS, as this is automatically generated


you can query a target by ID and obtain many information on it, but you cannot download the whole image or metadata using the VWS API


you can inactivate a target by issuing an Update request, as explained in the developer guide:



I want to activate/deactivate a target image

I want to desactivate the target image by changing only the "active_flag"  field, 

but the given example here is not working https://library.vuforia.com/articles/Solution/How-To-Use-the-Vuforia-Web-Services-API.htm#How-To-Update-a-Target

the response that i got is 404 Not found

the request is a POST to this url:  https://vws.vuforia.com//targets/d8eee6ac4c574de2965643106295759c

and in the body I sent contains only:   $jsonRequestObject = json_encode( array('active_flag' => 0 ) );
