You can use cURL to upload packet captures to Packetloop. We created a simple script that shows how to login, list capture points, create capture points, upload and also check processing status.
## variables
PL_ENDPOINT=https://www.packetloop.com
PL_USERNAME=... # your packetloop email address
PL_PASSWORD=... # your packetloop password
## logging in
PL_TOKEN=$(curl -3 -s -b cookies.jar -c cookies.jar -X GET "$PL_ENDPOINT/init")
curl -3 -s -H "X-CSRF-Token: $PL_TOKEN" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -b cookies.jar -c cookies.jar -X POST "$PL_ENDPOINT/users/sign_in.json?pretty=true" -d "{ \"user\": { \"email\": \"$PL_USERNAME\", \"password\": \"$PL_PASSWORD\" } }"
## list capture points
curl -3 -s -H "Accept: application/json" -b cookies.jar -c cookies.jar -X GET "$PL_ENDPOINT/devices.json?pretty=true"
## creating capture points
PL_DEVICE_NAME=my_capture_point_name
curl -3 -s -H "X-CSRF-Token: $PL_TOKEN" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -b cookies.jar -c cookies.jar -X POST "$PL_ENDPOINT/devices.json?pretty=true" -d "{ \"device\": { \"name\": \"$PL_DEVICE_NAME\" } }"
## upload file(s)
IDS=()
# set PL_DEVICE_ID from one of the capture points (devices) created or listed from the steps above
PL_DEVICE_ID=...
# repeat these two steps for any files you want to upload
PL_UPLOAD_FILE=~/Downloads/blah.pcap
IDS+=($(curl -3 -s -H "X-CSRF-Token: $PL_TOKEN" -H "Accept: application/json" -b cookies.jar -c cookies.jar -X POST "$PL_ENDPOINT/settings/captures.json?device_id=$PL_DEVICE_ID" -F "file=@$UPLOAD_FILE" | sed -e 's/.*://' -e 's/}//'))
# submit uploads
IDS_ARRAY=$(printf ",%s" "${IDS[@]}")
IDS_ARRAY=${IDS_ARRAY:1}
IDS_ARRAY="[$IDS_ARRAY]"
curl -3 -s -H "X-CSRF-Token: $PL_TOKEN" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" -b cookies.jar -c cookies.jar -X PUT "$PL_ENDPOINT/settings/captures/submit.json" -d "{ \"ids\": $IDS_ARRAY, \"device_id\": \"$PL_DEVICE_ID\" }"
## get status
curl -3 -s -H "X-CSRF-Token: $PL_TOKEN" -H "Accept: application/json" -b cookies.jar -c cookies.jar -X GET "$PL_ENDPOINT/upload/status.json?pretty=true"
