Connecting an OCPI/OCN party

The most common use case of the Open Charging Network describes an eMobility Service Provider (MSP) or Charge Point Operator (CPO) connecting their backoffice service to an OCN Node. Yet, not only MSPs and CPOs can use the Open Charging Network, but those are only the most common roles.

Follow these steps in order to successfully connect your own backoffice service:

  1. Make your backend service OCN-ready (OCPI 2.2 API + OCN Signature)

  2. Select an OCN Node and enter details in OCN Registry

  3. Connect your service to an OCN Node

  4. Manage your White- and Blacklist
