Getting Started

Step 1: Init SDK by clientId and clientSecret

const engine = RcvEngine.create({clientId, clientSecret});

More init properties refer to Interface EngineInitConfig.

Step 2: Finish authorization

// if config jwt, initialize SDK with jwt, else initialize SDK with password
await engine.authorize({
      grantType: jwt ? GrantType.JWT : GrantType.PASSWORD,
      username: userName,
// or inject auth token

For more details refer to Class RcvEngine.

Step 3: Start or join a meeting

It recommends listening to basic meeting events.

// add listeners
rcv.on(EngineEvent.MEETING_JOINED, (meetingId, errorCode) => {})
rcv.on(EngineEvent.MEETING_LEFT, () => {})
// join a meeting
rcv.joinMeeting(meetingId, { password })
// or start a meeting

Reporting usage data

We have included in the SDK the ability to send important usage data back to RingCentral systems to help product teams improve the product, monitor for issues, and better understand how developers and users are engaging with the products this SDK powers. This is enabled by default.

We understand that some may prefer this information not be transmitted to RingCentral via the SDK. To opt-out of this reporting, please make the following code change(s):

    isShareUsageData: false

What information do we transmit

When enabled, our reporting system transmits data when certain events are triggered. Accompanying each event is the following metadata:

  • Client ID
  • Anonymized account ID
  • SDK user-agent (name and version)
  • Event performed
  • Other event-specific meta data as needed

We do not transmit any personal data or personally identifiable information.

Load E2EE and VBG modules on demand

We will not load E2EE and VBG module by default, for reducing Client SDK packet size. If you need open E2EE or apply VBG (virtual background) to video, please register those modules as below:

import E2EE from '@ringcentral/video-sdk/e2ee';
import VBG from '@ringcentral/video-sdk/vbg';

    e2ee: E2EE,
    vbg: VBG,
