==API Integration==
 +
With Manager's API integration, IT Admin can connect to existing 3rd-party platforms via RESTful web services. Actions such as ''Broadcast message'' and ''Get device statistics'' can thus be triggered with REST commands.
  
===Broadcast image or video===
+
'''''Generate and access API keys:'''''
To broadcast image or videos to devices (requires Manager Advanced license):
+
# Click the settings button [[File:ClassroomSetting232434234.svg|20px|link=]] at the top-right corner of Manager console.
# First view Advanced device list by clicking [[File:Toggle manager.jpg|50px|link=]] ''Advanced devices''.
+
# Click the ''API Keys'' button [[File:ManagerAPIKeysIcon.svg|20px|link=]].
# Select the device(s) to broadcast to.
+
# Take note of your Entity ID, which is required to execute REST commands.
# Click [[File:MVB_M_broadcasting.svg|Link=]] ''Broadcast'' and then ''Multimedia''.
+
# Click the ''Add API Key'' button to generate a unique '''authentication key'''.
# Select the media (image or video) and the duration, and click ''Ok'' to broadcast.
+
# Copy this authentication key and keep it safe. This is the only time it will be shared.
# To end the broadcast, click the red end broadcast icon [[File:Manager end broadcast12313.svg|40px|link=]] .
 
  
 +
You are now ready to execute REST commands via your 3rd-party web service.
  
''Files to upload must not exceed the following sizes:''
 
* Maximum video file size: 300MB
 
* Maximum image file size: 30MB

myViewBoard Manager is a tool for Entity Admins to remotely manage multiple installations of ViewSonic devices, such as ViewBoard, ViewSonic CDE, and ViewBoard Box.

To access Manager, click the Manager tile after signing into myviewboard.com. Alternatively, first click Entity Management, and then click Manager on the side panel.

Note that this option is only available for users signed in using an Entity Admin or Owner account, typically used by school principals and IT directors.
If your organization has not yet signed up for an Entity account, find out more about the Entity sign-up process.
To learn more about Manager Advanced features, view the Manager Advanced page.

  • myViewBoard Manager is preinstalled on ViewSonic devices, which includes all ViewBoard models, ViewBoard Box connected devices, CDE 12 & 20 series, and a limited series of ViewSonic LED displays running Android 7 or higher. All ViewSonic IFPs come preinstalled with Android built-in native to the ViewBoard OS. In case the app is not found, please download it from myviewboard.com and install it.
  • To successfully use remote control features, ensure that TCP Port 443 is open on your network.
  • "Allow installation of apps from unknown sources" must be enabled on the IFP/device.


Enable installation of apps from unknown sources on IFPs

Steps to enable the Install apps from unknown sources setting will vary depending on the IFP model. See the following pages for examples:

If in doubt, your IFP's user manual will most likely contain instructions on installing APK files. If you need further assistance, see if you can find your answers here, or contact your IFP reseller for more details.


Whitelisting requirements

The following domains must be whitelisted in order to access Manager and manage devices:

  • *myviewboard.com
    This is required for the web applications ecosystem to function

Manage Devices

Overview

On loading the Manager console, your device list will appear along with left-side panel menu and a main toolbar. Various actions can be taken to manage your devices. To learn more, view the console overview.

Remote Control

myViewBoard Manager displays all your managed devices in a list on the MVB M all devices.svg All Devices panel, including options to quickly manage your devices through a remote control.

The right-most panel contains the remote control. Click the checkbox of your desired device to display it.

Remote control contains the following features:

MVBM sound.svg Adjust volume
MVB M power-off.svg Power off the device
MVB M restart.svg Restart the device
MVB M source select.svg Change the input source1
MVB M wifi.svg Add a Wi-Fi SSID
MVB M auto firmware update.svg Schedule a time for automatic firmware updates
MVB M firmware update.svg Update firmware now
MVB M unlocked.svg Toggle screen lock2
MVB M switch.svg Toggle screen on/off
MVB M switch.svg Allow installation of unknown apps

1Input source alias can be edited from the Change input source popup.
2Screen lock functionality within the Manager remote control differs from the embedded Screen Lock app on a device. Whereas the embedded Screen Lock app requires a password to reinitiate interactivity with the ViewBoard, Manager screen lock blocks device users from interacting with the screen. Only after the IT Admin unlocks the screen will the user be able to interact with the screen again.


Remote control also displays the following features for devices with a Manager Advanced license:

MVB M remote desktop.svg Remote desktop launcher: Remotely control a device from a pop-up launched from the Manager console.
MVB M startup-shutdown.svg Schedule startup & shutdown: Schedule a daily or weekly startup and shutdown time for a device.

  4. Click the Add API Key button to generate a unique authentication key.
  5. Copy this authentication key and keep it safe. This is the only time it will be shared.

You are now ready to execute REST commands via your 3rd-party web service.



Note: While on the API Keys popup window, click ManagerAPIKeysDocButton QuestionMark.svg to access the myViewBoard Open API Doc, which will introduce the formatting and execution instructions to perform REST commands.


ViewBoard Box

How to Acquire Manager Advanced Licenses

For users who already have access to basic Manager features, access a Manager Advanced sign-up form within the Manager console.

To sign up, navigate to the Manager advanced devices signup button.svg Manager Advanced page through the left-side panel. Then, click the Get Free Trial button to open the form. Your entity information will be pre-filled — simply fill out the remaining required fields and send the request.

For users who have already completed a free trial, you may use the same form on the Manager console to send a purchase request in the same manner described above.

For users with an established Entity account, you may also contact a ViewSonic representative via our contact form. Under I'd like to..., select Request Manager Advanced free trial. Alternatively, you can reach out to your established ViewSonic representative or Certified MSP.

If your organization has not yet signed up for an Entity account, find out more about the Entity sign-up process.


Assign Manager Advanced licenses to Devices

Manager Advanced works on a per-device basis. IT admins can purchase the number of Manager Advanced licenses to suit their requirements, and assign the licenses to devices within Manager. A license is purchased for a minimum of one year — the activation date can be decided by the user. myViewBoard offers 1, 3, 5, and 7-year subscriptions.



To assign Manager Advanced licenses to devices:

  1. On the MVB M all devices.svg All Devices panel, check the box next to the device or devices you want to add to Manager Advanced.
  2. Next, click MVB M advanced license.svg to assign Manager Advanced licenses to the selected devices.


To view Advanced devices only:

  1. On MVB M all devices.svg All Devices, click Manager basic-advanced toggle all device.svg to toggle the view to only Manager Advanced devices.
  2. Click the toggle button again to switch back to the all devices view.


To remove Manager Advanced licenses:

  1. On MVB M all devices.svg All Devices, click Manager basic-advanced toggle all device.svg to toggle the view to only Manager Advanced devices.
  2. Click the checkbox next to each device you wish to remove from Manager Advanced.
    (Note: This does not remove the device from Manager — it only disables the Advanced features for this device and frees up an Advanced License for use on another device if necessary.)
  3. Click the Remove from Advanced devices icon MVB M remove advanced.svg.
