Locate the sco-id of a meeting to invite users, get reports, or manage a meeting. Enlist all meetings on a server.

You often need to locate the sco-id of a meeting so that you can invite users, get report information about it, or update it in some other way.

You should understand the structure of folders in which meetings can be stored. By default, meetings are stored in the host’s My Meetings folder (called my-meetings in the API). For more details on the folder structure, see Characteristics of SCOs.

Find the sco-id of a meeting

  1. Call sco-shortcuts:

     https://example.com/api/xml?action=sco-shortcuts
  2. Parse the response for the sco-id of a meetings folder that is likely to contain the meeting:

     <sco tree-id="624530" sco-id="624530" type="user-meetings"> 
         <domain-name>http://example.com</domain-name>  
     </sco>

    The folder name should be meetings, user-meetings, or my-meetings. Use a folder as far down the tree as you can.

  3. Call sco-contents on the folder, adding a filter or two to reduce the response:

     https://example.com/api/xml?action=sco-contents&sco-id=2006258750 
             &filter-type=meeting&filter-name=Intro to Film
    • The more specific you can make the filters, the better. Good filters to use are filter-name, filter-url-path, or a date filter. Be careful with using filter-like-name, as it might affect system performance.

    • You can also call sco-expanded-contents to list subfolders and their contents. However, sco-contents is better for server performance, if you know the sco-id of the folder that contains the meeting.

  4. Parse the response for the sco-id of the meeting:

     <sco sco-id="2006743452" source-sco-id="-1625529" folder-id="2006258750" 
             type="meeting" icon="meeting" display-seq="0" is-folder="0"> 
     <name>Intro to Film</name>  
     <url-path>/film/</url-path>  
     <date-begin>2006-06-09T14:00:00.000-07:00</date-begin>  
     <date-end>2006-06-09T20:00:00.000-07:00</date-end>  
     <date-modified>2006-06-09T14:07:13.767-07:00</date-modified>  
     <duration>06:00:00.000</duration>  
     </sco>

List all meetings on the server

  1. Call report-bulk-objects with type=meeting:

     https://example.com/api/xml?action=report-bulk-objects&filter-type=meeting

    The response has a row element for each meeting, showing the meeting URL, name, and dates:

     <row sco-id="2007372149" type="meeting"> 
         <url>/monday/</url>  
         <name>Monday Staff Meeting</name>  
         <date-created>2006-12-18T14:15:00.000-08:00</date-created>  
         <date-end>2006-12-19T02:15:00.000-08:00</date-end>  
         <date-modified>2006-12-18T17:38:11.660-08:00</date-modified>  
     </row>
