We’re constantly working to improve the Cisco Webex developer experience, from signing up to promoting your apps in the Webex App Hub. With our latest update, we are releasing a refreshed Cisco Webex for Developers portal experience.
As a Webex developer, we want to give you advance notice of a key functionality change with spark-admin and spark-compliance scopes.
The following authorization scopes are now deprecated and will no longer work after August 15, 2018:
Following the rebranding of Cisco Spark to Cisco Webex Teams, all newly created bots will now be given a domain of webex.bot. Existing bots, which use the sparkbot.io domain, will remain unchanged until August 31, 2018. However if you, as a bot developer, would like to update the domain to webex.bot before then, you now have that option when you select a bot on the My Webex Teams Apps page.
New look and feel, same great service? Think again. There’s more to our recent rebrand of Cisco Spark than initially meets the eye - in fact, there’s quite a lot to like about our makeover, including some key things specifically for you as a former Spark/now Webex Teams developer and an upcoming refresh of a familiar Webex Meetings portfolio for existing Webex Meetings developers.
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.
