Integrating with Presence SDK

Step 1. Drop Presence sdk aar file in your application project libs folder

Step 2. Import it through “File -> New -> New Module -> Import .JAR / .AAR package”. Specify and locate the aar file.

PresenceSDK Android Step 1

PresenceSDK Android Step 2

Step 3. Go to your app module build gradle file and set the name of each aar file as compile dependencies as follows:

compile project(‘:PresenceSDK-release-’)

Step 4. Add the following dependencies in the same place as step #3:

compile ''
compile ''
compile ''
compile ''
compile ''
compile ''
compile ''
compile 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.5.2'
compile 'com.romandanylyk:pageindicatorview:0.0.5'
compile ''
compile ''

After adding them, the build gradle dependencies will look similar to the one shown as below:

PresenceSDK Android Step 4

Step 5. Create a configurePresenceSDK() method inside your activity class. In this method, the account credentials and branding color will be configured.

private void configurePresenceSDK() {
			consumerKey /*Consumer key provided on dev portal*/, 
			displayName /*your team display name */, 
			useNewAccountManager /*true/false for choosing between new or old account manager, by default it will choose old accounts manager */);

		// Configure your branding color for the SDK
		//opaque red


  1. Be aware that you need to pass application context object (not activity context) to PresenceSDK.getPresenceSDK() method. If it is not an application context, the presence sdk might reject and throw a runtime exception with a message to bring it to developer’s attention.

  2. To get consumer key please create an account on and register your app and it will generate a consumer key that can be used in the above method. Before you can use Presence SDK you will have to provide the generated consumer key together with consumer secret and redirect URI to Presence SDK support team so we can configure your app on our end!

Step 6. Create launchPresenceSDK() method inside the same activity class. In this method, you will implement a login listener and start the presence sdk

private void launchPresenceSDK() {
		PresenceSDK.getPresenceSDK(this).start(this, /*the id of the framelayout defined in 		activity layout where you want to load PreseneSDK UI fragment */
			, new TMLoginListener() {
    			public void onLoginSuccessful(TMLoginApi.BackendName 			backendName, String accessToken) {
        				Log.i(TAG, "Inside onLoginSuccessful");

    			public void onLoginFailed(TMLoginApi.BackendName backendName, 			String errorMessage) {
        				Log.i(TAG, "Inside onLoginFailed");

    			public void onLoginCancelled(TMLoginApi.BackendName 			backendName) {
        				Log.i(TAG, "Inside onLoginCancelled");

    			public void onLoginMethodUsed(TMLoginApi.BackendName 			backendName, TMLoginApi.LoginMethod method) {
        				Log.i(TAG, "Inside onLoginMethodUsed");

    			public void onLoginForgotPasswordClicked(TMLoginApi.BackendName 			backendName) {
        				Log.i(TAG, "Inside onLoginForgotPasswordClicked");

    			public void onCacheCleared() {
        				Log.i(TAG, "Inside onCacheCleared");

    			public void onMemberUpdated(@Nullable TMLoginApi.MemberInfo 			member) {
        				Log.i(TAG, "Inside onMemberUpdated");


Step 7. Call the configurePresenceSDK() and launchPresenceSDK() methods in the activity class onCreate() method.

	protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
		// set layout where you want to load presence sdk login entry view
		// call configure presence sdk method
		// call launch presence sdk method

This will load the entry fragment (UI shown below) where a login screen will be prompted to users to choose Ticketmaster or Team Account to login.

PresenceSDK Android Step 7

Step 8. Define the “AppTheme” style in styles.xml as follows:

<style name="AppTheme" parent="Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar">

Step 9. Try to build and compile. At this point, it should be compiled without errors.

Logout Methods

You can implement log out functionality on your UI with by calling these API :

  // TM logout
	// Team logout 
	// logout both

Check Login Status

Presence SDK also provides some helper methods for checking if user is logged into any of the supported services.

  //  Method to check if user is logged in any of the service  i.e Host or Accounts 	Manger
	// Method to check if user is logged in Host
	// Method to check if user is logged in Accounts Manager


For tracking user activity in the Presence SDK a separate class PresenceEventAnalytics is provided that lists all the user actions that are notified via local broadcast manager notifications together with the payload data.

Notification Events – You can observe these notifications to receive udpates from Presence SDK.

public static final class Action {

    // UI events (Start)
    public static final String ACTION_MYTICKETSCREENSHOWED = "com.ticketmaster.presencesdk.eventanalytic.action.MYTICKETSCREENSHOWED";

    public static final String SHARE_TICKET_EVENT_NAME = "share_ticket_event_name";

Analytics Usage

If you want to track ACTION_MANAGETICKETSCREENSHOWED event, you should register a local broadcast listener as below:

IntentFilter analyticEventFilter = new IntentFilter();
LocalBroadcastManager.getInstance(MainActivity.this).registerReceiver(mAnalyticEventReceiver, analyticEventFilter);

You can implement receiver mAnalyticsEventReceiver as follows:

private BroadcastReceiver mAnalyticEventReceiver = new BroadcastReceiver() {
    public void onReceive(Context context, Intent intent) {

        if (PresenceEventAnalytics.Action.ACTION_MYTICKETSCREENSHOWED.equals(intent.getAction())) {
            Toast.makeText(MainActivity.this, "Analytic Event: My tickets screen showed.", Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

Setting Branding Color In Compile Time

Presence sdk clients can set their own branding theme color by defining this color value in their application resource “colors.xml” file:

<color name="tmx_color_branding">#FFAA81</color>

The defined color will be displayed on all action buttons, action bars and ticket details page. If the above color variable is not defined in the client’s apk project, Tmx sdk will use a default color.
