WebService to connect to HV possible? RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I wonder if its possible for a webservice to connect to hv automatically using the AplicationID, userID and password on Live ID for any given user?? Some php will send  request to retrieve, delete or update CCR’ automatically from a user, user HV email and and password will be in MySQL, then in the other hand receive request to insert CCR’s from any given UserID to HV?

     

    Thanks

  • No. it is not possible to interact against healthvault using a web service using users creadentials.  You have to get the user login interactively each time with healthvault website, get them redirected back to your site and then interact (using SDK API)

    There is another scenario called offline access where the user authorizes the application once, and the application can then store the user context to interact with healthvault at a time when the user is not logged in interactively.

  • hi Lucas -

     

    You can also get your own application using the utilities we released in the most recent SDK. You can read more about it on our blog - http://blogs.msdn.com/healthvault/archive/2008/05/28/healthvault-application-configuration-center.aspx. We are gradually moving folks to self-service, so feel free to use the toolset to create your own application id.

    PS: If you are specifically interested in PHP, there is a healthvault library in works on sourceforge by one of our partners, however its not in a ready to run state.

  • OK I've got it, I guess there is no way to get around the automatic login, well, I request an applicationID for Offline access to CCR and CCD, how long does it takes to get set of keys?

     

    Thanks for your quick response!
