Slash command for Mattermost

Following up on the code that set the nickname and status via bash function, I wanted to do the same using a slash command

Here’s the code in PHP

<?php require 'vendor/autoload.php';
use GuzzleHttp\Client;
$client = new Client(['base_uri' => 'https://chat.example.com/api/v4/']);
$SLASHCMD_TOKEN = 'GET YOUR TOKEN';
$ADMIN_TOKEN = 'GET ADMIN TOKEN';
if (isset($_POST['token']) && $_POST['token'] == $SLASHCMD_TOKEN && $_POST['command'] == '/status' && !empty($_POST['text']))
{
    $user_id = $_POST['user_id'];
    $text = $_POST['text'];
    $params = preg_split('/("[^"]*")|\h+/', $text, 2, PREG_SPLIT_NO_EMPTY | PREG_SPLIT_DELIM_CAPTURE);
    if ($params && count($params) > 0)
    {
        $nickname = $params[0];
        $status = (count($params) == 2) ? $params[1] : '';
    }
    $response = $client->request('PUT', "users/$user_id/patch", ['headers' => ['Authorization' => "Bearer " . $ADMIN_TOKEN], 'json' => ['nickname' => $nickname]]);
    if (in_array($status, array(
        'dnd',
        'online',
        'offline',
        'away'
    )))
    {
        $response = $client->request('PUT', "users/$user_id/status", ['headers' => ['Authorization' => "Bearer " . $PERSONAL_TOKEN], 'json' => ['status' => $status]]);
    }
}

seems to work for me.

You’ll need to follow the instructions in the documentation to create the command on the server. Make sure to save the tokens in a safe place as usual.
