Intouch API Client for DotNet

RSS
This page contains clientside code that demonstrates how to use the Intouch REST API with C#.


Authentication

Authentication is done with basic http authentication. The authentication header must be on the format user@logondomain:password. For the following user:

Intouch user: MrJohnson
Intouch domain: acme.com
Intouch password: abc123

the code to construct the authorization header should look like this:

            string authInfo = Convert.ToBase64String(Encoding.Default.GetBytes("MrJohnson@acme.com:abc123"));
            webRequest.Headers["Authorization"] = "Basic " + authInfo;

Return values

Return values is specified by setting the Accept and Content-type headers to specify that you want to send and receive XML (or JSon) data. For XML, use "application/xml". For JSON, use "application/json".

Complete examples



Simple example for retrieving contact 123 as XML

            
            //Create webrequest
            HttpWebRequest webRequest = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("http://intouchapi.pswin.com/1/contacts/123");
            webRequest.ContentType = "application/xml";
            webRequest.Accept = "application/xml";
            webRequest.Method = "GET";

            //Add basic authorization
            string authInfo = Convert.ToBase64String(Encoding.Default.GetBytes("MrJohnson@acme.com:abc123"));
            webRequest.Headers["Authorization"] = "Basic " + authInfo;

            //Retrieve group
            using (WebResponse response = webRequest.GetResponse())
            using (Stream responseStream = response.GetResponseStream())
            using (StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(responseStream))
            {
                Console.WriteLine(reader.ReadToEnd());
            }
