How do I link Redmine to Microsoft Teams?

Added by li ru over 1 year ago

Thank you for your help.

I have been looking for it on the Internet for a long time, but there is no suitable method.

I don't know if there is any method or plug-in, can you let the two (redmine & microsoft teams) communicate?

Environment:
Redmine version 3.4.6.stable
Ruby version 2.3.7-p456 (2018-03-28) [x86_64-linux]
Rails version 4.2.8
Environment production
Database adapter Mysql2
SCM:
Subversion 1.10.2
Git 2.19.1
Filesystem
Redmine plugins:
redmine_lightbox2 0.4.3
redmine_msteams 0.2.0

Not sure if you want just outbound linkage from redmine to teams in which case you should look at redmine_messenger. If you want to be able to click a link and ping someone, I just wrote a plugin here https://www.redmine.org/plugins/redmine_im_link - you can add links after every watcher so that when you click it, it pulls up teams or slack or skype etc

You're welcome.

The problem you will have with MSTeams is that it does NOT currently offer deep linking in the regular version. In order to do it, you'd have to -

1) Turn on Developer Preview - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/resources/dev-preview/developer-preview

2) Test a Deep link that uses the correct format - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/concepts/deep-links#generating-a-deep-link-to-a-chat

So an example would be -

https://teams.microsoft.com/l/chat/0/0?users=aperson@yourdomain.com

...but like I say, if you try that on the regular version of teams, all it will do is just open teams, not open and initiate a chat session. So I'm not sure my plugin is really very helpful to you.

Hi, there.

My redmine has installed your plugin, but in the administrator/setting/pluging setting/Redmine Im Link, I don't understand how to set it.

Can you easily change the annotations of the picture to text so that I can translate it?

Also, can I ask if the following app can be connected with redmine by your plugin?

Hey Li,

No problem, happy to help. What language do you use? I will add a translation to the plugin.

MSTeams is a little difficult in the way it handles deep links. I need to do a little additional work to perfect that - I will update you in a day or so.

Ok, it turned out to be very easy - go here -

https://github.com/MatthewPaulGithub/redmine_im_link/wiki#msteams

MSTeams - use Watcher Link 1
Link Name - MSTeams (or whatever you want)
Link URL - sip:%email%
Link Type - Default
Include Strings - @ (or yourdomain.com if you just want to display link for your company)
The FIRST time you click the link on your machine, it will ask you what program you want to use. Choose MSTEAMS and check 'always use this program'. From then it will just open automatically.
