Is there a way to login using a Username that would not be an email ? 

Like:  username: Joe  password: 1234

Also, is there a way to provide a link that would contains the username and password (taken from a database) so a registered  participant would just require a click on a link to join a private room.

Thanks

André

Yes you can change the login id.

The direct link to log into a room is more challenging.

To change how the Login field is handled by Connect, go to Administration > Users and Groups > Edit Login and Password Policies. There you will find the option to set "Use e-mail address as the login" to Yes or No. If you change it to No, then you can use anything as a login ID, so long as it is unique to each registered user.

If you want to provide a link with the user's Username and Password from a database, you would just need to configure the tool you are using to place that information in the link to the room. This is not configurable using the Connect notification system, so keep in mind that it would need to come from a third party tool. The user passwords are also not exposed in Connect, even through the API, so you would either need to have a licensed deployment, where you could have access to the SQL database, or an LDAP/AD integration with a licensed deployment. Once you have access to the user's credentials, you would need to have an application that will log them into the system and then place them in the room.

Logging them in can be done by adding the following to the server URL:

h ttp://serverURL/api/xml?action=login&login=bob@acme. com&password=football

This should return a status code of "ok".

This should return a status code of "ok".

Then call the common-info to get the BREEZESESSION cookie.

h ttp://serverURL/api/xml?action=common-info

Take the value in the <cookie> field. It should look something like this:

na3breezkrzpcqid53fdfinu

Now pass that value to the meeting room by appending the Meeting URL with the following:

h ttp://serverURL/MEETING/?session=na3breezkrzpcqid53fdfinu

And the user will join the room without having to login.

Alternatively, you could by-pass the login by pre-defining the guest name by appending the Meeting URL as follows:

h ttp://serverURL/MEETING/?guestName=Bill%20Clinton

This information is available in the Web Services guide for Connect found here: http://www.adobe.com/devnet/adobeconnect.html
