Lately I have received a few requests from people asking if it was possible to Archive a Webex Message
Space as in "download all messages".
Interesting.

You can download all messages using the messages API but that leaves you with a pile of unreadable JSON data.

Therefore I wrote a Python script that downloads space messages and turns it into an HTML file.
This is a single HTML file that looks just like the Webex Message client.​​​​​​​

Use case

Potential use-cases:

  • For regulatory reasons (export & store content)
  • Make the full contents of a space easier to read & search (in 1 single file) 
  • Share content & discussions with non Webex Message users or members
  • Sharing Q&A's
