Overview

sparkcli (say 'sparkly' :) is a command line interface to Cisco Spark.

Setup - Configuration

There are two ways to provide sparkcli with credentials:

Using a bot account is the simplest to setup. Check the Cisco Spark docs for more details on the difference between the two. Both mechanisms are explained, when in doubt or unsure, go for the Bot account option.

Option 1: Use a bot account

1. Obtain a Cisco Spark bot account token

Define a new Cisco Spark bot account here: https://developer.ciscospark.com. Make sure to select the Bot option on this page. Fill in the fields as desired. For app icon, feel free to use http://files.ducbase.com/spark.png

2. Configure

Create a configuration file called sparkcli.toml. This file is in toml format. Sparkcli will look for the file in these locations (in order):

  • current working directory
  • /etc/sparkcli
  • users' home directory

Add the AccessToken to the file:

# cat /etc/sparkcli/sparkcli.toml
AccessToken = "NzIxMzZkMzYtODQ22S00YqFkLWIzNjUtYTg2NWZmYmEz12d5MzJmM2NhZDYtMWM1"

And you're done! Skip down to the usage section for more.

Option 2: Use OAuth integration

1. Obtain a Cisco Spark developer API key and secret

Define a new Cisco Spark integration app here: https://developer.ciscospark.com. Make sure to select the Integration option. Fill in the fields as desired, with the exception of:

  • App icon: Feel free to use http://files.ducbase.com/spark.png or use your own.
  • Redirect Url: http://files.ducbase.com/code.html.
  • Scopes: check all boxes.

You'll be provided with a ClientID and ClientSecret. You'll need these for the next step.

Next navigate to the 'OAuth Authorization URL' to obtain an AuthCode.

2. Configure

Create a configuration file called sparkcli.toml. This file is in toml format. Sparkcli will look for the file in these locations (in order):

  • current working directory
  • /etc/sparkcli
  • users' home directory

Add the ClientID, ClientSecret and the AuthCode from the previous steps in the file:

# cat ./sparkcli.toml
ClientId = "C23d70022b9e6c4b348897daac846xf694e7f8ffa3cd38986c6974433def69784"
ClientSecret = "dcca20a5b5cc89fbea1f2b3cd41x80248ff698277583bce69fa63923ef02dc64"
AuthCode = "46cd20fe32936af96ecb385772896ff84208x14dc3b2f1aebf98cc5b5a02accd"

3. Login

Download a copy of sparkcli: Download . Then run

sparkcli login

This will update your configuration file with the neccesary tokens for Sparkcli to authenticate against the Cisco Spark service. If you use SparkCli frequent enough (once every 90 or so days at least), tokens will be refreshed and kept up to date as needed.

Note: If Sparkcli gets confused and can't login for some reason, likely the easiest solution is to remove followling fields - AuthCode, AccessToken, RefreshToken - from sparkcli.toml and restart from step 2 above.

Usage

You'll notice that most commands have a short hand script which is listed below the long version
