SparkJS - When will publishEvent() be available?

I’ve been playing around with SparkJS and I get the error “Permission Denied” when I try to use publishEvent(). I know I’m actually logged in because the function listDevices() works.

I noticed that the documentation (found at states the following for publishEvent(): This feature is in a limited beta, and is not yet generally available.

Is/when will this function be available? Is there another way to publish an event (without using a core)?

Ultimately, I’d like to write an app that subscribes to events published by cores, and can publish events that the cores can subscribe to. I’m just missing the later part.

I tried going straight to the REST API and I get the same results. Here is the cURL command I used:

curl -d name=brett-test-event -d access_token=1234567...

The response is as follows:

  "error": "Permission Denied"

At least now I know I’m not using SparkJS incorrectly.

Any help from the guys at Spark when this feature will be accessible? @Dave @zachary


Sorry @brett13! Publishing events into the cloud is still in private beta, we don’t yet have a timeline for release

Hi @zach, I’m building a WebApp to configure and test a product based on the Photon. Do you have any updates on when will ```publishEvent()`` be available?


Should work already :smile:
