This package contains a Python SDK for Azure Communication Services for Rooms. Read more about Azure Communication Services here

Disclaimer

Azure SDK Python packages support for Python 2.7 has ended 01 January 2022. For more information and questions, please refer to https://github.com/Azure/azure-sdk-for-python/issues/20691

Key concepts

The Azure Communication Rooms package is used to do following:

  • Create scheduled meetings
  • Create meetings with managed permissions for its participants

Getting started

Installating the package

python -m pip install azure-communication-rooms

Prequisites

Client Initialization

To initialize the Rooms Client, the connection string can be used to instantiate.

from azure.communication.rooms import RoomsClient

client = RoomsClient.from_connection_string(conn_str='<connection_str>' )

Examples

Key parameters

  • valid_from: A datetime object from which room will start existing
  • valid_until: A datetime object after which room meeting would end
  • participants: A list of RoomParticipants containing MRI's of invitees to the room as well as optional ParticipantRole. If ParticipantRole is not specified, then it will be Attendee by default. All the above attributes are optional. The service provides default values of valid_until and valid_from if they are missing. The default forvalid_from is current date time and the default for valid_until is valid_from + 180 days.

Create a room

To create a room, call the create_room function from RoomsClient. The valid_from, valid_until, and participants arguments are all optional.

from azure.core.exceptions import HttpResponseError
from datetime import datetime, timedelta
from azure.communication.rooms import (
    RoomsClient,
    RoomParticipant,
    ParticipantRole
)
from azure.communication.identity import CommunicationUserIdentifier

client = RoomsClient.from_connection_string(conn_str='<connection_str>')
valid_from = datetime.now()
valid_until = valid_from + relativedelta(months=+1)
participants = []
participants.append(RoomParticipant(CommunicationUserIdentifier("<ACS User MRI identity 1>")))
participants.append(RoomParticipant(CommunicationUserIdentifier("<ACS User MRI identity 2>"), ParticipantRole.CONSUMER))
participants.append(RoomParticipant(CommunicationUserIdentifier("<ACS User MRI identity 3>"), ParticipantRole.PRESENTER))

try:
    create_room_response = client.create_room(
        valid_from=valid_from,
        valid_until=valid_until,
        participants=participants
    )
except HttpResponseError as ex:
    print(ex)

Update a room

The valid_from and valid_until properties of a created room can be updated by calling the update_room function from RoomsClient.

try:
    update_room_response = client.update_room(
        room_id="id of the room to be updated",
        valid_from=datetime.now(),
        valid_until=valid_from + timedelta(weeks=4)
    )
except HttpResponseError as e:
    print('service responds error: {}'.format(e))

Get a room

A created room can be retrieved by calling the get_room function from RoomsClient and passing in the associated room_id.

try:
    get_room_response = client.get_room(room_id="id of the room to get")
except HttpResponseError as ex:
    print(ex)

List rooms

Retrieve all valid rooms created with an ACS resource by calling the list_rooms function from RoomsClient.

try:
    list_room_response = client.list_rooms()
except HttpResponseError as ex:
    print(ex)

Delete a room

To delete a room, call the delete_room function from RoomsClient.

try:
    client.delete_room(
        room_id="id of the room to be deleted")
except HttpResponseError as e:
    print('service responds error: {}'.format(e))

Add or update participants in a room

In order to insert new participants or update existing participants, call the add_or_update_participants function from RoomsClient.

participants = []
participants.append(RoomParticipant(CommunicationUserIdentifier("<ACS User MRI identity 1>")))
participants.append(RoomParticipant(CommunicationUserIdentifier("<ACS User MRI identity 2>"), ParticipantRole.ATTENDEE))
participants.append(RoomParticipant(CommunicationUserIdentifier("<ACS User MRI identity 3>"), ParticipantRole.CONSUMER))
try:
    response = client.add_or_update_participants(
        room_id="id of the room to be updated",
        participants=participants
    )
except HttpResponseError as e:
    print('service responds error: {}'.format(e))

Remove participants

Remove participants from a room by calling the remove_participants function from RoomsClient.

communication_identifiers = [CommunicationUserIdentifier("<ACS User MRI identity 2>")]

try:
    remove_participants_response = client.remove_participants(
        room_id=room_id,
        participants=communication_identifiers
    )
except HttpResponseError as ex:
    print(ex)

List participants

Retrieve the list of participants for an existing room by referencing the room_id:

try:
    participants = self.rooms_client.list_participants(room_id)
except HttpResponseError as ex:
    print(ex)

Troubleshooting

Rooms operations will throw an exception if the request to the server fails. The Rooms client will raise exceptions defined in Azure Core.
