How to create Microsoft Teams Incoming Webhook Url

microsoft teams Jira connector add connector

Find Incoming Webhook and add one. Put the name as Jira and set the Jira logo.

Set the name and the icon of the Connector.

Copy the webhook URL that will be used later on during the configuration process.

Setup notifications from Jira to Microsoft Teams

Navigate to the configuration page at the Global or Project level, select the projects you want to get notification about and paste the webhook URL (or select a managed URL).

Setup the filters. Do remember that some values are only available when there is only 1 project selected.

You can configure custom field filters. For instance, below you can see the Epic Link filter.

 

The configuration gets stored when you press the Save button.

You can have multiple notification rules.

When you just installed the plugin, please try to create a very simple configuration to the event "Someone leaves a comment" and with no filters. This will validate that the plugin has the correct license and your Jira can access Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams message fields configuration

When you create a rule you can configure which issue fields are sent to Microsoft Teams.

Microsoft Teams message fields section contains 5 settings:

  • Exclude sending message details - when set the card will not contain any message fields (or we can call them facts).

  • Include links to attachment(s) - when set includes links to the issue attachments (if present).

  • Include links - when set the card could include the issue links (other issues as well as general links that can be added to the card).

  • Hide Empty Fields - when set the card does not get empty fields.

And the last setting is the issue fields selection multi-select field. It allows you to configure which fields the Microsoft Teams card should contain when the message is sent using the rule.

You can reorder fields by drag-and-dropping the names.
