Product-activate-sims Error


Im trying to use the product-activate-sims.js

I got this error, do you know what it means?

FYI I’m able to successfully use the claim-and-lock.js.

    throw err;

Error: Cannot find module 'nconf'

I checked the SIM on the Product and it looks like it was added even with the above error.

Did you get an error when you did:

npm install

in the product-activate-sims directory?

nconf is only used for the optional configuration file parsing, so if you only used command line options it would probably have succeeded even if nconf didn’t load.

i didnt call that in that directory and I did run it from the cmd.

I’ll give that a try.

@rickkas7 is there a way to deactiveSIMs with your .js programs?

I wanted to claim and lock 1,000 LTE devices to my account, as I started I noticed that the associated SIMS were being activate too. I dont even have my products yet and it’ll be many months before we start to use them so I dont want to be paying for the SIMs just sitting in China right now.


@rickkas7 also is there an error on this?

in the Activate_sim.js file
var req = { auth:config.get(‘AUTH_TOKEN’), iccids:iccids, countryCode:country, product:productId };

Should it be set to this to match the below?
var req = { iccids:iccids, countryCode:country, product:productId, auth:config.get(‘AUTH_TOKEN’) };


activateSIM({ iccid, iccids, country, promoCode, product, auth, context }) {
// promoCode is deprecated
iccids = iccids || [iccid];
const uri = product ? /v1/products/${product}/sims : /v1/sims/${iccid};
const data = product ?
{ sims: iccids, country } :
{ country, promoCode, action: ‘activate’ };
const method = product ? ‘post’ : ‘put’;

	return this.request({ uri, method, data, auth, context });

I would start with the set-sim-data-limit example because deactivating a SIM requires one SIM at a time, like setting the sim data limit.

Remove the mbLimit here:

var req = { auth:config.get('AUTH_TOKEN'), iccid:iccids[index], mbLimit:limit };

Change this to deactivateSIM:
