Miscellaneous

Info

A simple method, requires no authentication, that returns information about the server including version information.

this.rocketChatClient.miscellaneous.info(function (err, body) {});

Authentication

The authentication with the API is a process that is handled for you automatically when you create a new instance of the client.

var rocketChatApi = new RocketChatApi('https', 'my-rocket.chat', 443, 'admin', 'password', function () {
    // both rest api and realtime api are succesfully authenticated, given user and password are correct
});

You can, however, use the provided methods to switch user, or - i.e. if you don't have the credentials at startup time - you can choose a late authentication.

Note that the api methods here will only authenticate the Web Api, not the realtime websocket api. For authenticating the realtime api, please Check here.

Realtime

IMPORTANT! These implementations are based on an unreleased version of the API. Use this at the risk that it may stop working anytime.

The realtime API is composed of two elements: Method Calls and Subscriptions.

Methods allow you to invoke methods (i.e. send message) while subscriptions allow you to subscribe to methods. Not all methods of the realtime api are implemented, so combining those two apis - classic and realtime - should give you all the tools you need to create an interactive application.

Realtime API
Subscriptions
stream-notify-user
notification

Subscribe to notification. A notification seems to be a mention in a channel. The result is only a part of the full message, to get attachments one will have to query for the message afterwards.


this.rocketChatClient.notify.user.onNotification(userId, callback);

Result:


{
    "msg":"changed",
    "collection":"stream-notify-user",
    "id":"id",
    "fields":{
        "eventName":"${userId}/message",
        "args":[
            {
                "title":"@username-sender",
                "text":"message text",
                "payload":{
                    "_id":"id of the payload. might be use to ensure delivered only once?",
                    "rid":"some id, probably userId + smth unique?",
                    "sender":{
                        "_id":"userid of the sender",
                        "username":"username of sender"
                    },
                    "type":"d"
                }
            }
        ]
    }
}

    "collection":"stream-room-messages",
    "id":"id",
    "fields":{
        "eventName":"${roomId}"
    }
