Custom Api basics

You can Create Players and add points to Pointagram using our Custom Api. First you’ll need an Api key and then you’ll need to be able to POST Json data to our Api endpoint.

Get your Api-key

Go to your profile and click Settings and then Integrations. Add a Custom Integration and click Create Credentials. Name your integration and click ‘Show Key’ to get your key and remember to keep it in a safe place. This key is the equivalent to a password. Click save and you’re done.

Profile sharing

You can allow profile sharing for certain integrations. Profile sharing lets you embed parts of Pointagram into your own site and show information for a certain player. In order to request data from Pointagram your web site needs to create a hash message authentication code (HAMC) using a shared secret.

				
					<iframe src="https://tv.pointagram.com/v/?showprofile=1&hidebanner={{hidebanner}}&{{tabparam}}={{tab}}&extid={{player_prefix}}{{playerid}}&ts={{now}}&client={{appid}}&code={{my_secret_string}}" title="Pointagram" style="border:0; margin: 0; height: 100vh; width: 100vw;"> </iframe> 
				
			

Note, keep the App Shared Secret safe and not accessible in your client code.

You need to replace values within curly brackets as follows:

hidebanner 0 or 1, where a value of 1 will hide the profile screen banner.

tabparam Either ‘tab’ or ‘fstab’. Fstab forces a single tab layout.

tab 0-indexed value that set the active tab.

player_prefix Your external player id prefix if you’re constructing the player external id by adding a prefix, otherwise empty.

playerid The playerid in your system. This should match the external id in Pointagram.

now Current time as a unix timestamp.

appid The app id as defined in the custom integration screen.

Code The HMAC string of the following string:

				
					 "{{player_prefix}}{{playerid}} {{appid}} {{now}}". Note the spaces between {{playerid}} and {{appid}} and between {{appid}} and {{now}}.
				
			

The example above assumes that you want to use the player external id as identification for which player to display. If you prefer to use Pointagram internal id you can do so by adjusting the example above as follows:

				
					<iframe src="https://tv.pointagram.com/v/?showprofile=1&hidebanner={{hidebanner}}&{{tabparam}}={{tab}}&prid={{playerid}}&ts={{now}}&client={{appid}}&code={{my_secret_string}}" title="Pointagram" style="border:0; margin: 0; height: 100vh; width: 100vw;"> </iframe> 
				
			

Where playerid is the Pointagram player id.

Code should be built up as follows:

				
					"{{playerid}} {{appid}} {{now}}". Note the spaces between {{playerid}} and {{appid}} and between {{appid}} and {{now}}.
