On May 10th 2021 a new API component was added: SPACE Tabs!

We call them ROOM tabs to be consistent with the room (space) API.  Room Tabs represent an always available tab that is added as a tab in the space. It is configured with a content url. Just like in the Webex app, you must be a member of the room in order to list its Room Tabs.

What to use these for?

  • In your team space, add a tab with your team intranet page. 
  • In a finance space, add a tab with a specific Smartsheet
  • For an event space: add tabs for event project management tools
  • For file access: add box.com tab to see certain files in a space
  • In brainstorming spaces, add a Miro tab

The same applies to any other tool like Trello, Youtube, etc.

NOTE: when a login is required for pages in space tabs, you do have to login. Tools that use Single Sign On will make life easier.

​​​​​​​TIP: when you click a tab one more time a menu appears with the following options:

TIP: you can also move the space tab into a separate window by clicking the icon marked here:

When using the room tabs API to list all tabs you can expect something like this:

{
  "items": [
    {
      "id": "Y2lzY29zcGFMzQ1NWQ1ZDExZWYzOmNkZTGQtMTFlNS1iYTljLTdiNjU1NmQyMjA3Yg",
      "roomId": "Y2lzY29zcGFyJPT00vYJjZWIxYWQtNDNmMS0zYjU4LTkxNDctZjE0YmIwYzRkMTU0",
      "roomType": "group",
      "displayName": "Project Management HomePage",
      "contentUrl": "https://internal.cisco.com/projectmanager/team/233210119",
      "creatorId": "Y2lzY29L3VzL1BFT1BMRS9mNWIzNjE4Ny1jOGRkLTQ3MOGIyZi1mOWM0NDdmMjkwNDY",
      "created": "2021-05-18T26:14:16"
    }
  ]
}

Where:

id          = the space tab ID
roomId      = space that the tab is visible in
DisplayName = Title of the tab
contentUrl  = Tab content source URL
creatorId   = userId of the person who added the tab
created     = date & time

 

When creating a space tab, the following items are required:

  • roomId
  • contentUrl
  • displayName

Besides creating space t....ehh room tabs you can also remove/update/read them:
