  1. Support giphy integration as Slack does

    Giphy lets you search from the world's largest library of animated GIFs, making it easy to find and share them on the web.

    This integration will enable the /giphy slash command for your team. Search for a GIF using /giphy coffee time and the integration will display a relevant GIF in your channel.

    • Actions and buttons to incoming webhooks

      Hi,

      it would be nice if incoming webhooks could support some kind of actions or buttons.

      Ie: you use mattermost to recive alerts from a monitoriring system and you want to take action on this. Create a ticket, close the alert etc (linking to external systems/source)

      There are similar functionality in Microsoft Teams and Slack.

      • Preinstalled "matter-bot"

        I´m just stealing the idea from slack ;)

        I would like to see a simple bot that I can configure much like the "Slack Bot" (https://get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/202026038-Slackbot-your-assistant-notepad-programmable-bot)

        This is a great and simple way to get started with bots!

          • Calendar App

            To complement and extend the task management, a calendar app will really be a nice feature!

            Please see the Glip implementation of it
            https://glip.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/202321744-Calendar-App

            And so MatterMost will also become a Glip alternative 8-)

            • 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.

                • Integrate with Discourse

                  It would be fantastic if Mattermost could share user registrations from Discourse, so that our users only have to register/login once to use essentially the same site.

                    Would LOVE this as an integration. Anyone interested in helping?

                    There’s a lot of open source integrations to begin with: http://www.mattermost.org/community-applications/

                    If you know the Discourse API you could make a fantastic to the community here….

                    Also, if you do have something already (I’ll bet someone out there does…) and would like to share it with the Mattermost community, you can let us know here: https://spinpunch.wufoo.com/forms/mattermost-integrations-and-installers/

                  • 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 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.

                      • 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…

                          • 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.

                                • 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,…

                                      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!
