Register a Callback Listener URL:

POST /callbacks/{account}

Registers a URL at which an account will receive messages from the Software Management Service when new firmware versions are available and when upgrades start and finish. The messages will be REST messages POSTed to the URL. You are responsible for creating and running a listening process on your server at that URL to receive and parse the messages.

This request will replace the previously registered FOTA callback listener if there is one.

The callback messages will conform to the JSON callback schema shown on the About Callback Services page. You can follow these instructions to create a simple callback listener that will report the callback type and display any received callbacks on the console.
