Generating API Key

Developers who intend to integrate their app to Plantronics Open Data Access APIs have to get assigned API keys for accessing different products APIs. The Plantronics developer portal allows developers to register themselves. API keys allow applications to be authorized by the Plantronics Cloud Platform themselves to specific products they are interested in integrating with.   
  1. After creating your account, you will receive a validation email that will grant you permission to creating your API keys.
  2. Sign in to your account to add a new key.


HubRESTSample – a new C++ REST API Sample for PDC

This new sample code illustrates seamless consumption of Plantronics out-of-proc REST API from C++ code!

Location of full sample code: https://github.com/pltdev/pdc/tree/master/C%2B%2B%20REST%20Sample

Key Benefits

  1. Supports Plantronics Manager Pro configuration
    • Works with Plantronics Hub via “out-of-proc” REST API
  2. Supports multi-softphone & multi-device configurations


Advanced SDK Topic: Ensuring Resilience with Plantronics COM API

Author: Lewis Collins, Plantronics

When using the Plantronics COM API how do you ensure the connection to the Plantronics Hub software is working?
  • What if the user accidentally shuts down Plantronics Hub (or it crashes), or user upgrades it which would also result in it shutting down and starting again. Would your software re-connect to the COM API automatically?
  • What if Plantronics Hub is not installed, will your software still attempt to connect to it, resulting in long COM timeout? (Will this timeout impact your applications performance)?


Implement Proximity Detection (Near/Far) with Voyager Focus UC/5200 UC and BT600 dongle


The Plantronics SDK feature for receiving proximity events when headset is Near or Far from PC can still be used with the new line of products based on BT600 dongle (Voyager Focus UC, Voyager 5200 UC).

Integrate Plantronics REST API from Go


I have recently created an example integrate from the Go language to the Plantronics REST API.

It is still a work in progress but it is functional for receiving device, session and session manager events. (For further guidance on the REST Service API URLs you can use, check out the Java and JavaScript integration samples elsewhere on this site).

Obtain Go language (golang) from here: https://golang.org/


How To Get Your Voyager Pro UC to Tweet

When I first started at Plantronics, my boss handed me a Voyager Pro UC headset and a link to download the SDK and said "Build me something".  The result of that thought experiment is this blog post and some sample code for you to tinker around with.

By the end of this posting, you should have your very own application that allows you to access the contextual information within a Plantronics headset and tweet to the world about.

Let's get started...
