(REST) API Operations - Overview


We have created a new Javascript library that will make it easier for you to use our API. The first thing this library does is properly record metrics. Start using this library and you will get accurate concurrent watcher, page view, unique page view, and engagement minute totals for all of your events using our API. In the future, we plan to add features that will make it easier to display videos, polls, and discussion comments.

Adding the library to your page is simple, just copy and paste the code below replacing the id parameter (xxxxx) with your event id.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://embed.scribblelive.com/modules/lib/addons.js?id=xxxxx"></script>

We’re asking all of our customers who use the API to add this script tag to their page anywhere they use our API. If you have any questions please contact our support, we’re always available to help.

We’re also setting up a new API mailing list to keep users of our API informed of improvements, bug fixes, and changes. Email help@rockcontent.com if you’d like to be added to the list.

It is highly recommended that API requests are done over HTTPS to prevent passwords from being sent in clear-text.

You must have an existing event in order to make use of these operations.

All date/time values that are entered into parameters or returned in responses are in UTC.

Calls that modify (e.g. edit) posts, etc affect real data and cannot be undone.

Certain API operations require HTTP Basic Authentication. An authentication token for a particular user account can be generated by making an HTTP Basic Authentication request to /user and saving the contents of the Auth variable (see the Users section for more info). The token can then be sent back to the server in the Auth parameter of requests.

Note: Authentication tokens are valid for up to 2 hours or until the user's password is changed.
