Creating a Kii Application

Registering your application

To use the Kii Thing-IF SDK, you must first register your application on the developer portal. Once registered, your application will have an associated AppID and AppKey. You will use them when you initialize the SDK.

Follow the steps below to register an application on the developer portal.

  1. Log in to the developer portal: https://developer.kii.com

  2. Click the "Create App" button.

    This brings up the "Create Your App" menu.

  3. Enter the name of your application, and select the desired server location and the mobile platforms you'd like to use.

    For more details on the parameters, see Application.

    Click the "Create Your App" button when you are done.

  4. The page to download SDKs opens. Continue to the next step as you don't need to download any SDKs manually to use Thing-IF.

    See Adding the Thing-IF SDK to learn how to integrate the Thing-IF SDK into your project on the development machine.

  5. Click the "Finish" button. Now your application has been created.

Checking AppID

When an application is created, its access keys are assigned automatically. Of these keys, AppID is used by Kii Cloud to uniquely identify your application.

Please follow the steps described in Checking and Resetting Access Keys and check the assigned AppID. Record them for future reference.

Adding collaborators

You can add collaborators to your application. The collaborators will have the privileges to access your application on the developer portal as the application owner but cannot add more collaborators.

See Managing Collaborators to learn how to add collaborators.
