After registering as a third party, your registration won't be live for 2-4 weeks until the application is processed. In the meantime, you can only request data from test accounts, so you can try it out or start building an integration, but real customers won't be able to authorize data sharing with you yet. Smart Meter Texas will review your registration, then you'll get an email letting you know that your status is Live.
