Post new Marketo lead details to Cisco Spark room

  1. Set up Marketo ‘New Lead’ trigger

    This flow fetches the details of any new lead created in Marketo, and sends the name of the lead to a Cisco Spark room.

    To set up this flow, you will need to use the following:


    • Marketo ‘New Lead in List’ trigger
    • Cisco Spark ‘Post New Message’ activity


    Configure the 'Start' icon. Drag and drop 'Marketo' in the given box. Enter value in the fields as per the instructions given below.  


    Trigger Name: Enter a suitable name for the trigger.


    Select Trigger: Select ‘New lead in list’ from the options available in the drop-down list. This instructs the flow to trigger whenever a new lead is created in a particular list your Marketo account.

    Once you have entered all the details, save the trigger and click 'Done'. This will take you back to canvas.

  2. Add and configure Cisco Spark Post New Message

    Add Cisco Spark ‘Post New Message’ activity to the canvas. Connect this activity with the ‘Start’ icon (which now displays ‘Marketo’ icon), and configure it.  

    On the configuration page, you will notice a few fields. Enter values in the fields as per the instructions given below.


    Authorize Cisco Spark: In order to use this activity, you need to first create an authorization for Cisco Spark. If you have already created an authorization, select it from the drop-down options. Else, select Add new’ to create one.


    Room ID: Select/specify the ID or name of the room to which you wish to post the message. Clicking the ‘Refresh’ icon will fetch the list of all rooms of your Cisco Spark account—based on the authorization selected—and display it in the drop-down list. You can then select the ID or name of the room.  Alternatively, you can enter the room ID or room name manually.


    Message: Specify the message that you wish to send to the room. In this case, we will enter a custom message, along with the output of Marketo trigger.

    Once you have entered all the details, click on 'Done' to return to canvas. Connect this activity to ‘Stop’ and 'Save' the flow. Now, whenever a new lead is created in the specified list in Marketo, this flow will send the lead name to the specified Cisco Spark room.
