The new Pro Pack for Cisco Spark™ Control Hub released this week provides you with advanced security, compliance, and analytics functionality right in the Cisco Spark Control Hub. Along with this release, a new Events API has been added to give developers access to events happening with their Cisco Spark organization.
You can use the Events API to integrate with your existing Data Loss Prevention (DLP) software to check for policy violations and take action to resolve any issues. The events you can monitor include posting messages, sending content such as files, and adding users to spaces. You can also use the Events API to integrate with your existing archiving software to archive an unlimited amount of Cisco Spark data. For access to events older than 90 days, you will need the Pro Pack.
While you can use Webhooks to get real-time notifications of actions within Cisco Spark, the Events API gives you access to activities after they have occurred. Perhaps you need to retrieve every message sent by a particular user to comply with a legal discovery process, or you need to know which rooms someone joined and left. The Events API will give you access to this information quickly and securely.
The Events API is currently in Limited Availability. To gain access to the API, please submit a ticket to our Cisco Spark DevSupport team by emailing email@example.com with your organization information.
We focus on providing you the best features and experience. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or join the DevSupport Cisco Spark room. Follow us on Twitter to stay updated.
