Documentation

Getting Started

The Kerio API is built on JSON-RPC, whose advantages include ease-of-use, code readability and wide support among different programming languages and publicly available libraries. You can use the PHP library, which we have prepared for you.

Kerio APIs Client Library for PHP

Kerio APIs Client Library for PHP (i.e. kerio-api-php) is designed as a layer between user applications and Kerio products. With kerio-api-php, you can easily communicate directly with your server, e.g. Kerio Connect without diving deep into the underlining JSON-RPC architecture. Encapsulation of JSON requests and response is done automatically by the library.

Environment

Application can run API on the same machine which operates the Kerio Connect server, or remotely on any other machine. To run kerio-api-php, your host needs:

  • Apache HTTP Server 2.0 or newer
  • PHP 5.1 or newer with OpenSSL and JSON libraries
Recommended LAMP

You can download any web development environment, also known as LAMP/WAMP software bundle, such as the examples below:

Kerio Connect

Our Web Administration for Kerio Connect uses the same API that is now available to you. With the new Administration API for Kerio Connect, you can access your Kerio Connect server, integrate it with third-party solutions, or write simple scripts to handle advanced administration tasks. Currently, only the Administration API for Kerio Connect is available. Other APIs to manage calendars or user data are not supported. You can use IMAP/CalDAV/CardDAV protocols instead.

The API is designed to be accessible for any programming language. Connect over HTTPS, send a request in a well-known human-readable format (JSON) and receive a response in the same format.

Programming Libraries

You can also use the Kerio APIs Client Library for PHP for easy integration into your scripts and applications.
