Elive::View::Session - Session view and insert/update via ELM 2.x


A session is a consolidated view of meetings, meeting parameters, server parameters and participants.



Creates a new session on an Elluminate server.

    use Elive::View::Session;

    my $session_start = time();
    my $session_end = $session_start + 900;

    $session_start .= '000';
    $session_end .= '000';

    my $preload = Elive::Entity::Preload->upload('c:\\Documents\intro.wbd');

    my %session_data = (
        name => 'An example session',
        facilitatorId => Elive->login->userId,
        password => 'example', # what else?
        start =>  $session_start,
        end => $session_end,
        privateMeeting => 1,
        costCenter => 'example',
        recordingStatus => 'remote',
        raiseHandOnEnter => 1,
        maxTalkers => 2,
        inSessionInvitation => 1,
        boundaryMinutes => 15,
        fullPermissions => 1,
        supervised => 1,
        seats => 2,
        participants => [
            -moderators => [qw(alice bob)],
            -others => '*staff_group'
        add_preload => $preload

    my $session = Elive::View::Session->insert( \%session_data );

A series of sessions can be created using the recurrenceCount and recurrenceDays parameters.

    # create three weekly sessions
    my @sessions = Elive::View::Session->insert({
                            recurrenceCount => 3,
                            recurrenceDays  => 7,

...or equivalently...

These attributes are available from the base class Elive::Entity::Session.


The insert() and update() methods in this class rely on older ELM 2.x commands. These do not support a number of newer ELM 3.x features including restricted meetings, invited guests, groups, exit URLs and a number of other newer options and flags - these are listed in elive_raise_meeting.

Sites running ELM 3.0 / Elluminate Live 9.5 or newer may want to consider using Elive::Entity::Session, which implements the newer createSession and updateSession commands.
