Re: BBM Channels API?

MSohm, are there plans to provide a server-based API. There are many potentially valuable applications of posting things to channels from other systems.

This is on our roadmap, but no timelines have set yet.  We'll post an update about this on the BlackBerry Developer Blog when there is more information to share.

Re: BBM Channels API?

Are there other means of updating channels from within apps on the roadmap?

We would need some async method where we could just send content to a Channel without any further user interaction. Invoke doesn't work for that as it loads a card and lets the user complete the process.

Where is the roadmap posted?

Is there any update to posting to Channels outside of BBM?

Re: BBM Channels API?

That feature has been de-prioritzed.  We have not exposed any API so manage channels.

 

However, if you are just looking for an application to do so we have created a Hootsuite plugin to post to BBM Channels.

Re: BBM Channels API?

Integrating with ifttt would be a beautiful thing? Is that a possibility?

Re: BBM Channels API?

Hi,

Is there any further news on an api for posting. I would like to automatically replicate several posts daily from my servers db.

Thanks,

Re: BBM Channels API?

A BBM Channels server API was not released and creating one is no longer on our roadmap.  Hootsuite  BBM Channels integration is available.

Re: BBM Channels API?

Does Hootsuite for BB10 have a card I can call to post something to a channel from the calling app?

Re: BBM Channels API?

That already exists on BlackBerry 10.  See this post for details:  Sharing with BBM Channels

 

The APIs I was referring to were BBM Channels Server APIs.  Those would have allowed a server application (not running on the device) to post content to a BBM Channel.
