Setup & Configuration

SDK that allows you to add, edit or remove users to MQTTchat through a REST API.

Since you do not have direct access to our database, you need an SDK as an intermediary to add your users to MQTTchat, edit user's informations etc . SDKs are based on calls to the REST API hosted on our web servers. All queries are authenticated using HTTP Basic Authentification.

In this documentation we will see differents operations you can do with MQTTchat SDKs in the programming languages currently available: php.

Setup

Before you can use the SDK, you must install it in the environment in which you want to use.

Configuration

You should now create MQTTchat account and activate a free or paied subscription for your domain. Once activation is successful, you will receive in your admin panel (settings tab) the two parameters APP_ID and APP_SECRET. These two parameters are required to authenticate with our API.
