POST https://:subdomain.cobot.me/api/memberships/:membership_id/work_sessions

Checks a member in.

Authentication required:
yes, additionally user must be a space admin
Scope required:
write

URL:

POST https://co-up.cobot.me/api/memberships/fdc00612c086d003fab5d99539153f68/work_sessions

Body: <empty>

Response:

{
  "id": "479c76a975",
  "valid_from": "2012/10/25 10:05:24 +0000",
  "valid_until": "2012/10/25 23:59:59 +0000",
  "membership": {
    "id": "fdc00612c086d003fab5d99539153f68",
    "name": "joe"
  },
  "time_pass": {"id": "fbf709b2271e27d58686a2ea5e6d0ecc"},
}

Returns the check-in and a 201 status on success, 422 if the check-in could not be created because the coworker was already checked in for that day or the token is unkown (validation errors are returned as JSON).

For members using time passes, Cobot will automatically choose the cheapest time pass to use. You can override this by passing a time_pass_name parameter, either in the POST body or as query param.

You can also pass in the time of check-in (default=now) as valid_from.

POST https://:subdomain.cobot.me/api/check_ins

Checks a member, space admin or guest in.

The purpose of this endpoint is to serve captive portals or keycard systems where users have to authenticate via a password or token.

Authentication required:
yes, additionally user must be a space admin or member. Members can only check in themselves. Members cannot register tokens.
Scope required:
checkin
Rate limit
120 rpm

URL:

POST https://co-up.cobot.me/api/check_ins

Body:

{
  "login": "joe@example.com",
  "password": "test"
}

The login/password can come either from a user account that is a member or admin of the space or from a guest account set up for the space.

Checks the user in and returns the check-in and a 201 code:

{
  "id": "479c76a975",
  "valid_from": "2012/10/25 10:05:24 +0000",
  "valid_until": "2012/10/25 23:59:59 +0000",
  "membership": {
    "id": "fdc00612c086d003fab5d99539153f68",
    "name": "joe"
  }
}

For admins and guests no id and membership_id are returned as Cobot does not track check-ins for them.

Returns 422 if the member could not be checked in plus an error, e.g. {"errors": {"login": "Login or password incorrect."}}.

Other error scenarios: member is on a time pass plan but has no time passes, membership not confirmed yet.

When checking in a member who is already checked in the original check-in is returned.

In addition to password based authentication you can use this endpoint to authenticate users via a token. Captive portals can for example allow a MAC-address based authentication. To enable it you have to authenticate once via login/password, sending the token along. After that the user can check in by only sending the token.

  • A user can have more than one token.
  • Tokens have to be unique per space. Tokens that have already been registered cannot be registered for another user - doing so will check the user in but ot register the token and return a warning.
  • Tokens are not supported for guest accounts.

Checking in the first time with login, password and token:

{
  "login": "joe@example.com",
  "password": "test",
  "token": "12345"
}

Subsequent check-ins:

{
  "token": "12345"
}

Sending the token as login works, too:

{
  "login": "12345"
}

Responses are the same as above.
