How to set up notifications?

Users can receive real-time notifications in Microsoft Teams channels when there are updates, changes, or comments made on Confluence pages or blog posts.

Before starting the notifications setup, you have to decide what type of notifications you want to receive:

  • notifications to Microsoft Teams channels - messages that are sent to a specific channel in a team. These notifications are visible to everyone in the channel and can be used to share important updates and announcements. It's a way to communicate with your entire team or a specific group of people in your team.

  • personal notifications - individualized messages that are sent directly to specific users within Microsoft Teams about authored content and inline tasks, ensuring that users receive relevant information directly.

Notifications to Microsoft Teams channels

To set up notifications sent to the Microsoft Teams channels you have to create a notification rule which allows users to configure specific conditions or triggers for receiving notifications in Microsoft Teams.

To set up notifications sent to the Microsoft Teams channels:

  1. Go to app settings on a level which meets your needs: content, space, global (for Confluence Administrators).

  2. Log in to Microsoft Teams to connect your accounts.

  3. Create notification rule with specified filters and Microsoft Teams channel.

  4. Click on Save and receive a confirmation message to the Microsoft Teams channel.

Log in to Microsoft Teams button is available only before you create your first notification rule. For the next rules to get information about Microsft Teams teams and channels you have to Log in straight from rule creation modal window (Where to notify section).

Below you can find a short definition of each parameter you can specify:

Confluence Connector should be added to the selected team, otherwise, the notifications will not arrive.

  • 1-way integration doesn’t allow interaction with Confluence content from Microsoft Teams; to receive notifications you have to generate a Microsoft Teams Workflows URL for a particular Microsoft Teams channel.
