Questions about in-room controls and macros
I'm going through the tutorials and unless I've missed something, like an introduction (which I'll look for again), I had a couple of questions...


* Are macros always "running" ? It seems like this is the case... but a Macro can run and listen without doing anything until a certain action happens
* Is there just one macro loaded per system or can you load multiple macros? The GUI seems a bit confusing

I have never done this before, but according to:

Integrated, Automated Meetings Rooms with CE xAPI and Macros - DEVNET-2071
<https://www.ciscolive.com/c/dam/r/ciscolive/us/docs/2019/pdf/DEVNET-2071.pdf>

Yes they run as soon as you enable them, and yes they can just do nothing
until a certain triggering event occurs.

Yes you can load multiple macros on a system. You can enable them
individually too. Just be sure to save it first, else you wont be able to
enable it. See below where I have two creatively named macros, doing
amazing things, and one is enabled while the other is not.

Re: Questions about in-room controls and macros [ In reply to ]
Cool. Thanks for the CiscoLive link…. I’ll take a look there after I do some more tutorials.

I did some experimenting to try and replicate what I saw on Github and think I understand the highlights a bit better now.

The fact that you can have multiple macros makes me wonder, which takes precedence if two macros are “waiting” for the same thing.

The other thing I can’t see is a way to manage things dynamically. It looks like you have to load things manually. If you update a macro, you have to reload it. On each device. Even if you have a hundred of them.

I can appreciate that there might be APIs for me to use to go and push out update to each device, but it still requires me to maintain an inventory. I was hoping for the system to say “check for updates on these macros and load them in if there are changes” or something like that.

OK. What I’m _really_ hoping for is that Control Hub to have templates to apply to devices. _That_ would be great.
