Teams Messaging - Intro
Sending messages from PIPEFORCE to external systems is very easy when there is an API or webhook available. This tutorial will demonstrate that by sending a message to Office 365 / Teams.
1 - Create a webhook in Microsoft Teams
In the first step, you need to create a webhook in Teams, so we can send data to it. To do so, follow these steps:
Login to your Office 365 account: https://office.com
Open the Teams app
Navigate to Teams → Your Teams → Select the channel you want to send messages to → Connectors:
In the upcoming list click
Configureof Incoming Webhook:
Give the webhook a meaningful name and then click
Copy the generated webhook url into your clipboard, then click
2 - Send a message from a pipeline
Login to the portal https://NAMESPACE.pipeforce.net
Navigate to LOW CODE → Workbench
The ad-hoc pipeline editor is shown
Copy and paste this content into the editor, and overwrite any existing data there by this:
"text": "This message was sent with PIPEFORCE."
urlparam by the webhook url you have copied to clipboard before.
As you can see, we set the
bodyfor the HTTP message, which will be used by the
http.postcommand, in order to send it to the Teams webhook using the given url. Note the pipe
|character of parameter body. This is specific to YAML and allows to define a multi-line value without additional “line encodings” or “escapes”. We can write a JSON string straight here.
Done. After a few seconds, you should receive a new message in the Teams channel:
If you want, you can persist this pipeline in an app to keep it for later use.
