I have a script written in AutoIt that I intend to use to auto login a user into Spark when that user successfully logs into a medical application on a workstation (to prevent having to multiple login at the beginning of the day). The Spark login is easily accomplished using the command line parameters for username and password.
I also want to automatically set that user’s status message to reflect the named location and phone number where the user is sitting. For example, automatically set the user’s custom message to something like “MSK READING ROOM - 2-7945”
My AutoIt script can easily detect which location the user is at (based on computer name) and pass a string… but I find no command line option in Spark for passing an initial custom status message.
So, to point:
Is there a command line option to set initial user status message at or after the time of login?
If not, what is the easiest path I should take - just write a Sparkplug to detect the machine name and assign the Message string at startup based on that so that I don’t have to pass anything from my AutoIt script? I haven’t set up a development environment for Spark at this stage to create a plugin but will do so if necessary if there is no easier way to accomplish this.
Any advice is appreciated. I am new to spark programming but not programming in general.
