SDK using Egnyte’s Public API for your iOS projects.


  • iOS 8.0+
  • Xcode 8.0+
  • Swift 3.0+


CocoaPods (iOS 8.0+)

You can use CocoaPods to install EgnyteSDKby adding it to your Podfile:

platform :ios, '8.0'

target 'YourApp' do
	pod 'EgnyteSDK'

Note that this requires CocoaPods version 1.1.0+, and your iOS deployment target to be at least 8.0:

Manually (iOS 8.0+)

To use this library in your project manually you may:

  1. For Projects, just drag Egnyte.swift to the project tree
  2. For Workspaces, include the whole EgnyteSDK.xcodeproj

Getting started

Get an API key, as described in Getting an API key. If you need a domain for development, you can get one, as described in Get a free Partner Domain.



import EgnyteSDK

Initialize AuthRequest. You will find API key and Shared Secret here

let authRequest = AuthRequest.init(apiKey: "API_KEY",
                         		   sharedSecret: "SHARED_SECRET")

Initialize LoginService

// myViewController will present the necessary UI for a user to authenticate into Egnyte
let loginService = LoginService.init(presentingViewController: myViewController)

Perform auth request

loginService.performAuthRequest(authRequest) { result in
            do {
                let authResult = try result()
                self.token = authResult.token
				self.domainURL = authResult.egnyteDomainURL
            } catch let error {
                // handle error

Creating APIClient instance

Once you have EgnyteAuthResult object, you can create APIClient that's capable of executing requests. Note that you should use only one instance per Egnyte domain.

let apiClient = EgnyteAPIClient.init(domainURL: domainURL, token: token)

Executing requests

Create request by passing to initializer APIClient and required parameters. Then call on it enqueue which enqueues request to be executed by apiClient.

let folderContentRequest = ListFolderContentRequest.init(apiClient: apiClient,
                                                         path: "/Shared") { response in
    do {
        let folderContent = try response()
        // handle result
    } catch let error {
        // handle error

Sample App

A sample app can be found in the SampleApp folder. The sample app demonstrates how to authenticate a user, and search, list, delete, upload, share, download files and folders.

To execute the sample app: Install Pods

cd SampleApp
pod install

Open Workspace

open SampleApp.xcworkspace

Replace API_KEY and SHARED_SECRET in MainViewController with your API Key and Shared Secret.

// MainViewController.swift
static let API_KEY = "your api key"
static let SHARED_SECRET = "your shared secret"


Tests can be found in the 'EgnyteSDKTests' target. Use Xcode to execute the tests.
