  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.

    • More integration with jira to replace HipChat

      Since HipChat is very buggy it would be nice to have Mattermost fully replace HipChat. That means that the current(beta) integration needs to be expanded to provide at least notifications for comments: craeted, updated and deleted.
      In that way you can get important notifications when you have urgent issues.

        • Ability to Reply to Message with Webhook

          It would be awesome for us, when something like this could be achieved:

          I use a slash command in a thread (right side), the triggered post will include the parent message id.

          Add the parent message id to incoming webhooks. So I can reply to a thread with webhooks.

          • Add background color on BOT messages (by condition or log level)

            I just wonder that if MM could set background color for messages by condition.
            Like hipchat that bot messages could show with different color by info level:
            green => success
            yellow => warning
            red => failed

                • Have a option to order the channels as last update time

                  Now I almost have 40 channels(include direct message channel), it's not easy to find 5 channels which talked to me in last 1 minutes in all my channels and to switch comment between these channels.

                  Hope there is an option with "by alphabet" or "by the last updated" to control the channels list order.

                  • Simplify chatbot integration by enabling bots to run sandboxed, in-process on the server

                    Currently if I want any sort of 'bot' behavior, I need to:

                    * Get an API token (ask an admin for permission)
                    * Stand up a server or learn serverless
                    * Figure out deployments/monitoring/logging

                    To test my code, I need to expose my in-progress work to the internet so it can receive webhooks.

                    This is a substantial bar to clear, resulting in monolithic projects like Hubot with many plugins.

                    Organizations implementing this style of bot frequently have only a handful of people who know how to contribute to it.

                    An alternative would be to support 'Managed bots': custom code (language…

                    • Add the ability to connect Smooch.io

                      Integrate Mattermost with Smooch.io would enable us to use a wide range of platforms within one tool. This also would end up having several requests here solved too - since Smooch also offers Native SDK's, Web Chat and much more.

                      • Make Mattermost recognize jira links to show issue information

                        One thing you need the whole time when really working with Mattermost is pasting links from other applications like Jira. Because there is no tight integration, either the other person has to open the link all the time or I have to copy the issue title besides the link.
                        The only way I could solve this party was with a slash command (because it works for every channel) (https://github.com/mattermost-jira-info/mattermost-jira-info)
                        But it would be nice to extend the link parser (link preview) to be able to connect it to other applications....

                        • Support for the Slack Real Time Messaging (RTM) websocket API

                          The RTM API allows integrations to connect to slack from behind a firewall, seemingly connecting much like a normal desktop client might, from any computer, not just an externally visible server.

                          It's a very important enterprise feature for those wanting to integrate Mattermost with their internal applications.

                          Further discussion on this can be found here:
                          https://forum.mattermost.org/t/does-mattermost-support-real-time-messaging-api-from-slack/1287/2

                          And this slack FAQ describes the differences between the Events and RTM API's:
                          https://api.slack.com/faq#events_api

                          This is the Slack RTM API spec:

                          • allow personal access tokens for all users

                            Currently non-admins cannot create personal access tokens unless they ask an admin to enable personal access tokens for them. Considering that any user could already go through the SSO flow or use username+password depending on the setup to get a token for the API, there should be a config option to allow everyone to create personal access tokens by default.

                            • Documentation of JSON payload format for integrations

                              I read the Documentation to add custom slash commands. It gives an example of a valid JSON response, see https://docs.mattermost.com/developer/slash-commands.html#creating-integrations-with-commands.
                              The documentation then says "As mentioned previously" several times when speaking of the JSON payload. But every previous description eventually refers to Slack and its proprietary JSON payload format. So if Slack changes its JSON format and adds or removes fields I have no idea if this is gonna work in Mattermost.

                              Could you please add a page in the documentation which describes the format? Which fields are available? What fields differ from Slack? etc. And then add a…

                              • Allow for bots to directly upload images

                                Bots are only able to post text messages to rooms, however, it would be convenient if bots were able to attach photos as a message to the room.

                                We would prefer if our bot didn't have to upload images to an accessible URL and then post that url to the room (and then only get a preview of an image), as this adds a few extra steps to viewing the image and requires our bot to be aware of when it is done uploading the image to the host and then finally post the link to the room.

                                • Offer an onboarding bot

                                  An on-boarding bot helps new users to on-board into a work environment. In every channel a new team member enters the On-boarding Bot will send a message explaining the channel, what is done there, how the team member can get involved, whom to contact etc. This would help organizations and teams to work more efficiently.

                                  • Mattermost in SharePoint (e.g. iframe)

                                    The last question regard this topic in this forum was not very helpful. Therefore my question: I have in my company mattermost installed. E.g. matter.mycompany.com - Now I would like to integrate mattermost in e.g. via iframe. How can I easly active the iframe option - in General or just for mycompany.com if this is possible? Thanks in advance!

                                    • Automated configuration data for /slash command

                                      How about allowing for a special parameter ?getslashinfo=1 or something return the various fields that need to be filled in in the Slash Command configuration.

                                      Add a button "Fetch" to the right of the Request URL and if clicked, MM goes to retrieve Display Name, Description, Request Method, Autocomplete Hint and Autocomplete description fields.

                                      Even if the user gets it back in the wrong language, it'll be easy to translate to the local language. Reponse username and icon should obviously not be allowed to be fetched like this, nor the trigger word.

                                      A second parameter could be sent with getslashinfo=1,…

                                      • Allow mattermost inside an iframe, in a controlled way

                                        This pull request introduced a security measure to protect against clicjacking attacks: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/pull/253

                                        But it also prevents some legitimate uses of iframes. For example, Nextcloud has a "external sites" function to run any app as if it was a Nextcloud app, by putting it in an iframe inside Nextcloud (https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/9/admin_manual/configuration_server/external_sites.html).

                                        My proposal is to add some settings to allow an authorized domain, and then change X-Frame-Options, instead of DENY put ALLOW-FROM this domain. And to check the domain also in the javascript check in head.html.

                                        This way it would allow legitimate uses, while still protecting against clickjacking attacks.

                                        • Add anchor to enable introduction text to trigger a command

                                          This would allow for instance to execute a command for the user from a link in the introduction to display a code of conduct, help or whatever usefull content.
