  1. Easy to use server side encryption for every server like in Nextcloud

    Having secure "at rest" data on the server is very important for data safety, especially due to the new privacy laws within the European Union. Nextcloud for example offers an easy to use server side encryption for its services within the settings. No special software is neesed.

    Our organisation really wishes an easy to setup server side encryption within the dashboard.

    • Chatting to Golang Bot through direct message

      Hello, I have the golang bot implemented into a mattermost channel.
      It would be helpful to have an option for users to ask the bot questions in a Direct message as opposed to just a public channel.
      I feel that this would encourage users to use the bot more and help shy users as well. That way there can be some sort of privacy between users.
      Also, a way to have a log for Admins to keep track of what questions are being asked will be helpful in developing the bot further.

      • Channel-specific option for Notifications from Channel-wide mentions "@channel", "@all", and "@here"

        Channel-specific option to enable/disable notifications from channel-wide mentions "@channel", "@all", and "@here". Currently they can only be globally toggled in "Account Settings" > "Notifcations" > "Words that trigger metnions" > "Channel-wide mentions @channel, @all, @here".

        I want notifications for some channels where I'm the main support person and need to respond to all messages, but do not want notifications on other channels that I never need to reference unless I have a question I'll be asking others.

        • Restrict team by email

          It is currently possible to restrict account creation to specific email domains via “Settings > Users and Teams > Restrict account creation to specified email domains”; however, once a user has an account, they can be invited to any team, or join any open team.

          We would like to be able restrict individual teams to an email domain too. Specifically, we have a group of external contractors who have access to their own team, but we don’t want them to accidentally end up in any of our other teams.

          For example, team “Foo” would only allow members from @foo.com, and…

          • "Mark channel unread" option to support account notification settings "words that trigger mentions" feature

            At the moment its possible to mark channels unread if you are mentioned (The channel name is bolded in the sidebar when there are unread messages. Selecting "Only for mentions" will bold the channel only when you are mentioned), but it would be awesome if we could have the function to choose the settings that are already adjusted in "Account settings" --> Notifications --> Words that triggers mentions

            Would save lot of time to read only channels that has something related to your keywords, not only if you are mentioned

            Related issue, but requires more like only "channel wide notifications": …

                  Hi,

                  please implement this code to all CSS templates:

                  .post.same--root.post--comment, .post.same--root.same--user.post--comment {
                  padding-left: 4em;
                  }

                  We are using it some time, and chat is more clear to read.

                  Many thanks.

                  • Allow users to choose the Teammate Name Display option

                    From version 4.0 the Teammate Name Display option is an administrator only option for the reasons explained at https://forum.mattermost.org/t/switching-teammate-name-display-to-a-system-console-setting/3366

                    Please add another option in the _System Console_ under _Users and Teams_ "Allow users to choose Teammate Name Display" which allows users to choose how to display users' names in posts and the Direct Messages list.

                    We understand that the name in the push notification would not reflect an individual user's preferences; this would be totally fine for us (but it probably should be mentioned in the description text of the new option).

                    The main thing is that our users prefer…

                    • Include user's language in body of outgoing slash command request

                      Currently, outgoing Slash commands send in the request body information about the user like user_id and user_name.

                      However, to properly internationalize a slash command integration (such as https://github.com/jedfonner/MattermostOnFire/issues/2), the receiving system needs to know the user's specified language (from Account Settings > Display > Language).

                      Please add a "user_language" field to the JSON object passed in the body of the message sent by Mattermost outgoing slash commands. This field should be populated by the user's language (e.g., en-US, es-MX, fr-CA, etc).

                      • Restricted channels with a join policy

                        Currently all you can have in Mattermost is public channels (joinable by everyone in the team) and private channels (not visible in any listing, and you need to be added).

                        The problem is that sometimes you want to have a private discussion where e.g. everyone from the IT department is allowed to participate. Currently you would have to add your whole department to such a channel (which is spammy, especially since you cannot hide any channels from your sidebar without leaving them).

                        It would be nice if it was possible to mark a channel as restricted. Such a channel would…

                              The message text is currently too small for my liking. It would be wonderful if we could allow users to adjust the display size of the text. Slack for instance lets you do this to some extent. Even a choice between 'small, medium, large, extra large' would be great. Thank you

                              • [Feature Request] close the websocket connection when revoke the user access token

                                Hi all,

                                I noticed that when I revoke the access token of a user. and the websocket connection of this access token is not closed or disconnected.

                                in addtion, there is no new message from the websocket when revoked the accesstoken, but the websocket connection is ok.

                                is it posssible to close the websocket connection when revoke the access token or session?

                                mattermost server version: 4.5.0

                                thanks a lot

                                • Support Mattermost behind Basic Auth

                                  Currently, Mattermost Server usage behind Basic Auth is limited/handicapped due to authentication issues caused by the websocket connection (as it seems, basic auth headers are not propagated correctly).

                                  In our company, public services must be at least secured by basic auth. I guess other companies have same restrictions.

                                  So basic auth support would be a nice feature.

                                  • Report duplicate AD/LDAP information rather than setting usernames to random strings every hour

                                    When the AD/LDAP User Filter is too permissive, multiple user objects with the same Email Attribute may be returned. When this happens, and the Username Attribute is not present on the returned value, Mattermost may reset the username of the existing user with the same email address to a random string. This repeats every 60 minutes (or whatever the Synchronization Interval is set to).

                                    For example, if two LDAP objects are returned:
                                    { userclass=contact, email=myusername@example.com }
                                    { userclass=user, sAMAccountName=myusername, email=myusername@example.com }

                                    In this case, Mattermost may cause username@example.com's account to have its user id changed to a…

                                    • Allow emoji reactions to trigger outgoing webhooks

                                      Just like it is possible to trigger outgoing webhooks from specific keywords, it'd be nice to trigger an outgoing webhook from a emoji reaction on a message.

                                      The idea is to allow the message being reacted to to be sent to another system where it could be parsed and analysed for further action.
