Overview

    LINE WORKS Developers

    LINE WORKS Developers helps you have access to APIs provided by the LINE WORKS Bot Platform which can access and control LINE WORKS data, and technical documents regarding them. Using the LINE WORKS Bot Platform APIs, you can connect your own system with the LINE WORKS Bot Platform to use them together.
    You can configure settings required to use the LINE WORKS Bot Platform APIs in Developer Console, which also provides Community where you can ask questions about using the APIs and share your know-how with other developers as well as Notice that allows you to check out updates on the APIs.

    Attention
    With the release of LINE WORKS API 2.0, LINE WORKS API 1.0 will be discontinued on April 30, 2023.
    Even before the end of the API, some parts of the LINE WORKS API 1.0 may not be able to be used properly due to changes in the service specifications. Please consider migrating to LINE WORKS API 2.0 as soon as possible.

    Developer Console

    LINE WORKS Developer Console allows you to configure basic settings required to use the APIs, as listed below:

    • API authentication environment configuration
      • API 2.0
      • API 1.0
    • SSO type configuration
    • SAML Apps (Login with LINE WORKS ID)

      Note
      There are two types of single sign-on (SSO) settings: SSO and SAML Apps.

      • SSO is used to log in to LINE WORKS, which works as a service provider (SP), with account information of an external integrated authentication service and others.
      • SAML Apps is used to log in to other cloud services with account information of LINE WORKS, which works as an identity provider (IdP). SAML Apps provides the integrated login feature that is available for various cloud services. (See more)
    • Organization integration setting

    • API statistics
    • IP Telephony (IPT) integration setting
    • Bot creation and management

      Note

      You can use either the Developer Console's menus or the LINE WORKS Bot Platform APIs to create a message bot, but you need to use the APIs to send messages or implement interaction features.

    Who can use Developer Console

    The following users can use the Developer Console.

    • Admin
    • Sub Admins
    • Developers created as custom permissions
      • Custom permissions can be created by the Admin or Sub Admins in LINE WORKS Admin. Go to Help

    As developers using the APIs have the same member management permissions as the Admin, you must be very careful when granting permissions.

    Note

    When you first log in to the Developer Console, you must agree to the Terms. If you buy LINE WORKS through a partner, go to Admin > Partner and allow your partner to access the Developer Console, then your partner can access it instead of you.
