[Exchange-Online] [EWS] [C#] [Windows]: Possibility of websocket communications? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Now, I know that I specified EWS as the Exchange API that I'm using, but I would be willing to change this.

    A web kiosk in our lobby shows the meetings for the day on a read-only display. Right now I'm using AJAX polling to EWS to get the data. I would like to receive the data via a websockets connection. This is pretty easy with SignalR, an ASP.NET websockets library.

    The problem is I can't figure out what the trigger would be for my server-side observer. If this were a locally owned Exchange server I might be able to figure out how properly trigger the observer to emit the changes, but since it's Exchange Online in which I have no experience (or control over), I don't even know if this is possible.
