The Webex Recordings card is built using the new Appspace integration with third-party systems that leverages standard technologies to create long-lived, authenticated, and secure connections. The Webex Recordings card allows users with a Cisco Webex account to access and display a recording of their Cisco Webex Meeting (such as conference calls or town hall meetings), ideal for keeping the workforce, in the office or working remotely, well informed.

An initial connection must be established between Appspace and a Cisco Webex service account, which is then stored in a virtual passport in Appspace and can be used until the service account revokes or cancels the integration. The passport will allow the card to establish a connection with the third-party system at runtime.

Important
Only one recording can be displayed in the card at any one time. The recording will be streamed directly from the Webex site. The card or device will not store the content locally.

Note
Read more about the integration architecture and how it all connects here in the Introduction to Appspace Integrations.
