Open WebRTC Toolkit(OWT) Server Management REST API Guide

1 Introduction

Open WebRTC Toolkit solution provides a set of REST (Representational State Transfer) API for conference management. Management clients can be implemented by different programming languages through these APIs.

2 Definitions

Resource: the kind of data under manipulation

Verb: HTTP verb. The mapping to operations is as following:

- Create operations: POST
- Read operations: GET
- Update operations(entirely): PUT
- Update operations(partially): PATCH
- Delete operations: DELETE

URI: the Universal Resource Identifier, or name through which the resource can be manipulated.

Request Body: the request data that user need supply to call the API. JSON format data is requried.

Response Body: the response data is returned through HTTP response in JSON/text format.

3 Making a Call

With all the management API, perform the following steps to implement each call.

  1. Create a string for the http request that consist of the format [HTTP verb][url] + [headers] + [request body](optional)
  2. Use your preferred language's network library (or http library) to send the request to REST server.
  3. For authentication, REST API accept HTTP authentication on each request, see section 4(Authentication and Authorization) for details.
  4. Read the response in your programming language, and parse the response JSON data.
  5. Use the data in your application.

The following common HTTP status code may be returned after you make a call:

- 200 - OK. Some calls return with a JSON format response while some calls return a plain text response indicates success.
- 401 - Not authenticated or permitted.
- 403 - Forbidden.
- 404 - NOT found or no such resource.

Besides the common HTTP response code, there are also some internal status code for specific error conditions. Following is an example for response body used to represent internal error in JSON format.

{
    "error":{
      "code": 1001,
      "message": "Resource not found"
    }
}

Note: "code": 1001 is a status code for internal error.And all the error following the same format.

Here is a table describing the internal error code.

code description
1001 general not found
1002 service not found
1003 room not found
1004 stream not found
1005 participant not found
1101 authentication not found
1102 permission denied
1201 failed to call cluster
1301 request data error
1401 database error
2001 unexpected server error

4 Authentication and Authorization

The management API can only be called after authorized. To get authorized, each request should be a HTTP request with "Authorization" filed in the header. So the server can determine whether it is a valid client. The value of "Authorization" is something like:

MAuth realm=http://webrtc.intel.com,
mauth_signature_method=HMAC_SHA256,
mauth_username=test,
mauth_role=role,
mauth_serviceid=53c74879209ee7f96e5cbc9c,
mauth_cnonce=87428,
mauth_timestamp=1406079112038,
mauth_signature=ZjA5NTJlMjE0ZTY4NzhmZWRjZDkxYjNmZjkyOTIxYzMyZjg3NDBjZA==
  • Mauth realm=http://webrtc.intel.com, mauth_signature_method=HMAC_SHA256
  • mauth_username and mauth_role are optional.
  • mauth_serviceid is the ID of the service.
  • mauth_cnonce is a random value between 0 and 99999.
  • mauth_timestamp is the timestamp of the request.
  • mauth_signature is a signature of this request. It uses HMAC_SHA256 to sign timestamp, cnonce, username(optional), role(optional) with service key. Then encrypted it with BASE64.

Python example of encryption algorithm (JavaScript version can be found in provided samples):

from hashlib import HMAC_SHA256
import hmac
import binascii

toSign = str(timestamp) + ',' + str(cnonce)
if (username != '' and role != ''):
    toSign += ',' + username + ',' + role
signed = self.calculateSignature(toSign, key)
def calculateSignature(toSign, key):
    hash = hmac.new(key, toSign, HMAC_SHA256)
    signed = binascii.b2a_base64(hash.hexdigest())[:-1]
    return signed

toSign is the signature.

Note: If authentication failed, a response with code 401 would be returned.

5 Management Resource

The management API uses REST model to accessing different resources. The resources in conference management can be grouped into 7 kinds:

  • Rooms
  • Participants
  • Streams
  • Streaming-ins
  • Streaming-outs
  • Recordings
  • Sipcalls
  • Analytics
  • Token

5.1 Rooms

Description:
A room is the conference where users can communicate by real-time video and audio. Rooms are served by services. These resources can only be accessed after authenticated to their owner services. Rooms can have different settings for various scenarios. Making call on room resources provides users the ability to customize rooms for different needs.

Data Model:

  _id: string,
  name: string,                        // name of the room
