YOUR CREATIONS & GUIDES


The Book of Guilds -- Technical non RP information

Ok...

HOME page

By this I mean your character home page, in client accessible with Shift+W.

Anonymous user

Anonymous is every application user whos character name is not known. This user is limited to use default application settings, his guild activity is not tracked and can see any public data.


Authenticated user

Some features requires to know a character name you currently act with. Typically adjustment of your application settings. In that case you are prompted to log in, which will redirect you apps.ryzom.com from where you should start the application. When using IG browser, you may experience a session expiration, in that case you are asked to click HOME button to restart the session.

Ryzom server works as dummy proxy here. It will "start" the app for you and (important) will provide a way the application can use to confirm it is really you (authentication). Then returns some basic data about your character. All is realized using PHP Ryzom API via ryzomapi_lite. Install and run RyApp Example application from App Zone to see what all application knows about you in this case.

If member of a guild, your character activity is logged every time your last activity is older than ~60 minutes. The trigger to run the check is starting one of my applications as authenticated.

Dynamic icons

This is new feature in Ryzom App Zone. In case you allow dynamic icon for any of my apps, the application icon on App bar and on HOME page (Shift+W in game) will be reloaded every time you reload that bar (typically comming on-line) or HOME page (logging into apps.ryzom.com, opening in client). This will be same as running the app authenticated and will trigger activity check.


API key and modules

API key gives access to selected character data. You can get (create) your character API key using Ryzom API. Different applications may require different key modules based on purpose as I highlighted on following image.

See application About (click on application name/icon in top left corner) to view which module is required and why. Book of guilds has no user interface but language change and do not require any API keys. The following image shows modules requirement for Fame tracker.

If authenticated user wants to use a feature based on character API key, he is prompted to insert a valid key which includes required modules.


Data cache

The trigger for updates is same as for activity (see above). In case your API key contains module P01, system monitors changes of your fame. In case there is P02 module presented, system monitors changes of your master skill levels. If any of C04, C05, C06 or A03 modules are present and your inventory cache is expired, system will cache items in your inventory.

You can remove all your personal data in your settings. To clean everything up delete your full name, set Publish policy to Exclude from guild members list, remove your API key and check all in Clear cached data. Then click Save. In guild activity log you will be referred as Unidentified member.

Since the next release you will be able to lock every specific update / activity in Customization settings. Level tracking is realized for Level tracker application which will be released along. Bag App and Letter app will be released later, probably with next major update.



Finally, I have created a simplified diagram how it is, generally, done. Will this give you your answers?
