About the Live Meeting Service Portal API
This content is no longer actively maintained. It is provided as is, for anyone who may still be using these technologies, with no warranties or claims of accuracy with regard to the most recent product version or service release.
Web Methods can be implemented depending on the configuration options in Live Meeting Settings Panel and, in the Security Panel, on membership for Web Methods. For more information about required settings to make Web Methods available to you, see the Microsoft Office Live Meeting Service Portal Administrators Guide.
As an administrator or organizer, you can manage Live Meeting accounts programmatically by using the Portal Web methods. An exception is the GetTicket method. It is always called under the identity of the Windows user who is requesting the login ticket. Any user of the Microsoft Windows operating system user can call the GetTicket Web method.
Functional View of the Service Portal architecture
For example, you might invoke the CreateAccount Web method whenever a new user joins the organization. Similarly, you might invoke the DeactivateAccount Web method whenever a user leaves the organization.
The following list briefly describes each of the Portal Web methods.
ActivateAccount. Activates a Live Meeting account.
ChangePassword. Changes the password for a Live Meeting account.
CreateAccount. Creates a new Live Meeting account.
DeactivateAccount. Deactivates the Live Meeting account.
DeleteAccount. Deletes the Live Meeting account.
GetAccountStatus. Gets the status of a Live Meeting account.
GetTicket. Retrieves a login ticket.
GetTicketFor. Retrieves a login ticket for a particular user.
The following paragraph applies to all Portal Web methods.
The IIS Web server that is hosting the Portal Web application authenticates the Web method caller by using integrated Windows authentication. The Portal obtains the Windows identity of the caller and verifies that the caller is entitled to use Web methods. Only users and groups who are included in the Web method callers list can use Web methods. The Portal administrator specifies the groups and users in this list when configuring the Portal. This ensures that only authorized users can use Web methods.
