Announcing Change to @mentions in 1-1 Cisco Spark Spaces

As a Cisco Spark developer, we want to give you a heads up regarding a key functionality change in the Spark Message API endpoint.

Currently, the Message API endpoint accepts @mentions in 1-1 Spark spaces. Soon, though, the API will return an error if an @mention is used in a 1-1 space. What this means is that, moving forward, @mentions should only be used in Spark group spaces.

If your app has been @mentioning in 1-1 spaces, please update it now to remove the mention.

We'll keep you posted on any other changes on this, and, of course, will continue to update you on other refinements we make to further improve and enhance the Cisco Spark developer ecosystem.
