Get a list of devices excluded from location service:

GET /consents/{account}/index/{startIndex}

Returns the list of devices in the account that have been excluded from location services. (A POST /locations request will return an error for excluded devices.) All IoT devices in an account are eligible for location services by default, but you can exclude devices (and include them again) with a POST /consents request.
