Create a bot user automatically after installation


Thanks for this great software!

I’m setting up a workflow of Rocket.Chat and docker and it’s working so far.

But I would like to automate the workflow together with hubot. From what I see it needs a bot account created previously, so it would need manual steps before I can run the container with the bot.

I gave a look at the api, and would call it with:

curl -H "X-Auth-Token: $hubot_auth_token" \
	-H "X-User-Id: $hubot_user_id" \
	-H "Content-type:application/json" \
	$base_url/api/v1/users.create \
	-d "{\
		'email': '$hubot_email', \
		'username': '$hubot_user',\
		'password': '$hubot_password', \
		'name': '$hubot_name', \
		'roles': ['bot'], \
		'verified': true, \
		'joinDefaultChannels': false, \
		'requirePasswordChange': false, \
		'sendWelcomeEmail': false \

but unfortunately the auth_token and user_id should be created manually previously.

I tried to find a way to specify environment variables to do that in the setup, or to run a command directly in the rocketchat container to create the bot user without the need of using credentials of another user, but no success so far.

Is there a way to automate this process?

Thanks in advance.
