Android Quick Start

Registering your App on the Kii Developer Portal

In order to use the Kii SDKs you must first register your application on the developer portal. Once registered, your application will have an associated App Key and App ID that you'll use to initialize the SDKs.

Register an application

  1. Log in on the developer portal:
  2. Press the "Create App" button.

    This bring up the "Create An App" menu.

  3. Enter the name of your app, select the desired server location and the mobile platforms you'd like to use and then click on the "Create Your App" button.

    Note: the China server currently has the following limitations:
    -- Kii Cloud SDK's "Push Notification with GCM" feature is not available.

  4. Select the newly created app and then click on "Access Keys".

    These are your application's credentials which will be used by Kii Cloud to uniquely identify your application.

Adding Collaborators

You can add collaborators to your application. The collaborators will have the privileges to access your application on the developer portal as the application owner (except for adding more collaborators).

Please follow the steps below to add collaborators:

  1. After selecting your application, click "Collaborators".

  2. Enter the email address of the collaborator you want to add, and click "Send Invite".

    The invitation email will be sent to the specified address. When the user who receives the invitaion email accesses the developer portal via the link in the email, this user will be registered as a new collaborator.

    You can check the status of the collaborator invitation by clicking "Collaborators" button.

    Those users who have received the invitation emails but not yet registered as the collaborators will be shown as "pending", while those users who have already registered as the collaborators will be shown as "active".

    You can also take the following actions:

    • Clicking "Re-send" button will send the invitation email to this user again.
    • Clicking "Revoke" button will disable this collaborator.

    The "SHARED" mark will be shown on the application in which you are registered as a collaborator, like in the snapshot below.

When multiple collaborators and the app owner simultaneously apply new application settings, they will not be reflected in the developer portal screen instantly. You will need to reload your browser.

Downloading the Android Client SDK

Once your application is registered, you will be prompted to download the Android Starter Kit which includes the client SDK and a preconfigured application to get you started quickly.

Alternatively you can download the SDK by clicking on the "SDK" link at the top of your application console.

To integrate the SDK with your existing app, please check out the following resources:
