Quick Start

Create an account

Creating an account is very simple. Go to Dashboard to create a free account.
We’re using Single Sign On across our websites, therefore, if you already have an account with our services, you can use it to also acccess the Dashboard.

Create an API client app

Before you can make any requests to GroupDocs Cloud API you need to get a Client Id and a Client Secret. This will will be used to invoke GroupDocs Cloud API. You can get it by creating a new Application.

Install the SDK of your choice

GroupDocs Cloud SDK is written in different languages, all you need to get started is adding our SDK to your existing project.

Make an API request from the SDK of your choice

Use the Client Id and the Client Secret from the API app client you have created previously and replace in the corresponding code. Below is an example demonstrating using Formats API to get all supported file formats in GroupDocs.Annotation Cloud using SDKs for supported languages.


// For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-dotnet-samples
string ClientId = ""; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
string ClientSecret = ""; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud

var configuration = new Configuration(ClientId, ClientSecret);

var apiInstance = new InfoApi(configuration);
var response = apiInstance.GetSupportedFileFormats();


// For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-java-samples
String ClientId = ""; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
String ClientSecret = ""; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud

Configuration configuration = new Configuration(ClientId, ClientSecret);

InfoApi apiInstance = new InfoApi(configuration);
FormatsResult response = apiInstance.getSupportedFileFormats();


// For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-php-samples
use GroupDocs\Annotation\Model;
use GroupDocs\Annotation\Model\Requests;

$ClientId = ""; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
$ClientSecret = ""; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud

$configuration = new GroupDocs\Annotation\Configuration();
$configuration->setAppSid($ClientId);
$configuration->setAppKey($ClientSecret);

$infoApi= new GroupDocs\Annotation\InfoApi($configuration);

$response = $infoApi->getSupportedFileFormats();


// For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-node-samples
global.annotation_cloud = require("groupdocs-annotation-cloud");

global.clientId = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX"; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
global.clientSecret = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"; // Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud

global.infoApi = annotation_cloud.InfoApi.fromKeys(clientId, clientSecret);

let response = await infoApi.getSupportedFileFormats();


# For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-python-samples
import groupdocs_annotation_cloud

client_id = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" # Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
client_secret = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" # Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud

infoApi = groupdocs_annotation_cloud.InfoApi.from_keys(client_id, client_secret)

result = infoApi.get_supported_file_formats()


# For complete examples and data files, please go to https://github.com/groupdocs-annotation-cloud/groupdocs-annotation-cloud-ruby-samples
require 'groupdocs_annotation_cloud'

$client_id = "XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX" # Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud
$client_secret = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" # Get ClientId and ClientSecret from https://dashboard.groupdocs.cloud

infoApi = GroupDocsAnnotationCloud::InfoApi.from_keys($client_id, $client_secret)

result = infoApi.get_supported_file_formats()
