Webex Teams bot for configuring Cisco devices

Project description

CiscoConfBot is a Webex Teams bot written in Python3.

Setup

pip install ciscoconfbot
Create bot at:
https://developer.webex.com/my-apps/new/bot
Setup webhook via Webex Teams API or at:
https://developer.webex.com/docs/api/v1/webhooks/create-a-webhook
See sample creds and configuration files prior to starting bot.
Create 3 directories where the bot will store various configurations and/or device files.
Note that config and creds files need to be structured like the examples show.
Also, see sample .yml file for correct formatting
mkdir /path/to/dir

Running

Run with

python -m ciscoconfbot path/to/config/file.ini
Alternatively, you can setup a system service to start on reboot/reload.
See example service file for a quick idea.
Once configured, you can enable it once with:
systemctl start nameofservice.service
Or you can enable the service to start after the server/device has been reloaded
systemctl enable nameofservice.service

Operation

Once bot has been configured, add the bot to a space and invoke:

@nameofbot

Operations are as follow:

@nameofbot /serial ipaddressofdevice (returns serial number of device)
@nameofbot /upload (requires zip folder of device configs in hostname.txt format)
@nameofbot /config (requires .yml file of hostnames and serial numbers)
