Sametime Meeting Code

The Sametime Meetings REST service calls are different to the OAuth meeting service providers. Although some functions and classes are re-used between the two, they are at a more granular level and the wrapper code around those granular calls is peculiar to Sametime.

The entry point for the action buttons is agents with names consistent with the other meeting service processes, e.g. (DOMI_scheduleSTMeeting).

The process flow for making the create, update and delete operations has a consistent flow. The first two calls are done in the getSTHeaderToken() function in domiUtilsBE

Call 1: /refresh Endpoint

For the first call, the code goes into getSTTempTokens(). This uses a NotesRESTconsumer to make a GET request on /refresh endpoint of the Sametime Meetings API. This call is expected to result in a 401 HTTP status code (Unauthorised), but will return a set-cookie header with an _csrf token and a x-csrf-token header.

Call 2: /refresh Endpoint

getSTHeaderTokens then uses the set-cookie header is used to construct a cookie header containing the _csrf cookie value and the refresh token from the credentials. A NotesRESTconsumer is created to make a second GET request on /refresh endpoint. This is expected to result in a successful request, which will return a set-cookie header with an auth token and an updated x-csrf-token header.

Call 3: Create / Update / Delete Meeting

The agents then update the cookie header with the sametime auth JWT token.

For create and update, a payload is created with the meeting details. Meeting names need to be unique for Sametime Meetings and certain characters are prohibited. As a result, the meeting name is sanitised before added to the payload.

The relevant REST service call is then made to create, update or delete the meeting. If the REST service call was successful, the meeting fields in the calendar entry are updated and success confirmed.
