What can I do with the Microsoft Teams Module?

Similar to the Slack module, this integration will provide communications from openITCOCKPIT into a Teams chat within MicrosoftTeams.

How To Configure?

The settings for the Microsoft Teams module can be found under "System configuration → APIs → Teams".

Field name Required field Description

To make this feature work properly, your Microsoft Teams setup requires the "Incoming Webhook" connector in the teams channel you want to post the notifications.

  3. Configure the "Incoming Webhook" connector.
