Getting started

Quickblox Sdk is really simple to use. In just a few minutes you can power up your mobile app with huge amount of awesome communication features & data services.

var quickbloxClient = new QuickbloxClient(applicationId, authKey, authSecret);

By default QuickbloxClient is configured to work with the shared server ( If you have a dedicated server you need to provide your API endpoint and Chat Endpoint to the QuickbloxClient constructor.

Preparing for use

Call Init() method for each platform before you use Quickblox Sdk


Authentication and Authorization

To be able to use QuickBlox API you have to create a session.

There are 2 types of session:

  • Application session. It provides only READ access to data.
  • User session. It provides CRUD(Create, Read, Update, Delete) access to data.

User sign up scenario

You can create an Application session with just the following code:

var sessionResponse = await quickbloxClient.AuthenticationClient.CreateSessionBaseAsync();

If session is successfully created sessionResponse.StatusCode is going to be equal HttpStatusCode.Created and quickbloxClient.Token will contain the token for current session.

Then you can sign up a new user:

var userSignUpRequest = new UserSignUpRequest
                User = new UserRequest()
                    Email = email,
                    FullName = fullName,
                    Password = password
var response = await QuickbloxClient.UsersClient.SignUpUserAsync(userSignUpRequest);

After this you can upgrade your session to User session:

var loginResponse = await QuickbloxClient.AuthenticationClient.ByEmailAsync(email, password);

User sign in scenario

To login an existing user use CreateSessionWithEmailAsync or CreateSessionWithLoginAsync methods.

var sessionResponse = await QuickbloxClient.AuthenticationClient.CreateSessionWithEmailAsync(email, password);

If session is successfully created sessionResponse.StatusCode is going to be equal HttpStatusCode.Created and quickbloxClient.Token will contain the token for current session.
