Getting Started

join.me is the online meeting tool that just gets out of the way so that people can accomplish great things together. We've built join.me to solve a range of problems inherent in online collaboration, but sometimes the best solution for your users is a custom one. This is why we've opened our REST resources to everyone; we believe an app is less important than the way you use it.

So what are you waiting for? Starting ad-hoc meetings and managing scheduled events from your app has never been easier!

1. Ready? Sign up for an account

Signing up to be a join.me API developer only takes a minute.

  1. Register for a developer account.
  2. Keep an eye on your inbox for an account verification email from noreply@mashery.com.
  3. Login and start exploring!

2. Set. Register your application

Before your application can integrate with join.me you'll need to register it. Fill out some information about your app, and while you're at it, sign up for a join.me API key. Once your application is registered, you can edit the application parameters at any time and access reports on usage activity.

3. Go! Enable join.me functionality in your app

Calling join.me API endoints requires an OAuth 2.0 access token. To get one, you'll need an API Key and your join.me user's authorization.

If you didn't grab an API key while you were registering your application, don't worry, you can do that now:

  1. Find your application under My Applications.
  2. Click Add APIs.
  3. Select the API plan you want to subscribe to, such as join.me developer plan.
  4. Check the Issue a new key for join.me API checkbox.
  5. Accept the terms of service, click Register Application, and you're all set.

Keep this key safe and secure: it uniquely identifies API calls coming from your application, and it's required for OAuth 2.0 access. If you ever forget your API key, you can retrieve it here.

Next steps:

In order to make join.me API calls on behalf of a join.me user, you'll need an OAuth 2.0 access token for that user. If your OAuth 2.0 knowledge is a little rusty, our authorization docs will tell you everything you need to know about using your new API key to obtain an OAuth 2.0 access token.

Need a playground to test how the join.me API works? Visit the Builder to experiment with API calls. All you need is your API key, but make sure your application's Callback URL is set to https://developer.join.me/io-docs/oauth2callback (for more information about the Callback URL, see our FAQ)

We've also created a kitchen sink application that demonstrates all the v1 API functionality. The code is up on GitHub to help you get started with your integration: join.me API Kitchen Sink.
