About the Integration

Enabling BlueJeans Relay in Robin allows you to automatically start your BlueJeans meeting once you check into the room. 

How to enable BlueJeans Relay

This article assumes that you have already set up your BlueJeans Relay account on BlueJeans & you're now ready to connect it to your Robin account. Please refer to BlueJeans Getting Started with Relay documentation if you need some help.

First step is to enable API access for Robin & BlueJeans Relay. A Robin admin or a member from your IT team will need to generate an access token by following these steps here.

Refer to the images below as a guide when generating the access token. 

POST https://relay.bluejeans.com/api/auth/accesstokens?duration=-1 HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Basic bXl1c2VybmFtZTpteXBhc3N3b3Jk


You should receive a response that looks like the image below. From there, copy the generated access token to paste into Robin in the next step.

"HTTP/1.1 200 OK

{ "enterpriseName": "myenterprise", "accessToken": "DFG67SD876DFG76SDF5", "creationDate": 1418375348052, "expirationDate": 1419584948052, "roles": ["ROLE_READWRITE", "ROLE_READONLY"], "clientName": null }

 

Now that you have an access token, navigate to Manage > Office integrations > BlueJeans > Manage in the Robin dashboard. 

  • Paste the access token. A successful connection will display in Integrations.

Don't want to repeat these steps in two weeks?

By default access tokens expire within 2 weeks. Be sure to adjust the duration parameters to -1 when generating the access token.

 

How to provision your Endpoint 

Following the steps in BlueJeans Relay getting started guide you will reach the Endpoint Provisioning step at which point BlueJeans will ask you for the Calendar ID and Calendar Type.

The Calendar ID or calendar address can be found in Robin on the space details page and will look something like this.

 Make sure the Calendar ID in BlueJeans matches the calendar address in Robin.

Go through these steps for each space in Robin you want to connect with Relay.
