  2. Use Gitlab's API to provide metadata for private resources

    Gitlab projects are more often than not shielded off into private repos.
    Given that Mattermost easily installs along with Gitlab (using the Omnibus installer, just by providing the url mattermost can listen on) it would make a lot of sense to have that info there; instead of a very unhelpful & confusing "Sign in" metadata

  3. Hiding user from User directory

    Right now when you click to Add new + icon beside direct message it show you directory where it show all user registered on the server.

    So to protect that, a option to hide that directory will be added. To add other user you have type email address of that user from which he registered on your server.

    More like whatsapp where you can msg people whome phone number you have.

  4. Allow Incoming Webhooks to use response_type

    From: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/10463

    Please allow incoming webhooks to use response_type. I'm looking at making a bot that would allow others to roleplay. This bot functions by watching the channel, and when it sees a message with a trigger that has been set up with it, uses a incoming webhook to post a message with a custom picture and username before deleting the triggering message.
    This gives the effect of someone being able to play different characters, especially when paired with: https://mattermost.uservoice.com/forums/306457-general/suggestions/37237117-allow-webhooks-to-post-to-reply-threads

  5. Allow Webhooks to post to Reply Threads

    From: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/10463

    At the moment, the "comment" value for response_type will only trigger for the triggering message, even if that message is part of a thread. Maybe a value of "thread" can tell it to reply in the thread rather than creating another thread just to respond to the trigger message.

  9. Add image upload to webhook profile picture integration

    Instead of relying on a url path for a profile picture in a webhook integration, it would be really useful to have a file upload path.

    Thank you!

  10. Add typescript type definitions to the mattermost-redux api-lib

    Please could you add types so that developping of plugins/integrations/hooks and such may benefit from the power of type verification and auto completion.
    It would, specially on API dev, be a strong plus ;)

  11. Add optional custom headers to slash command requests

    I have recently implemented a small custom slash command for our company, that makes a GET request to an AWS API Gateway resource, baked by an AWS Lambda function. This is a very conventient way to implement simple, for lack of a better, less overused term, microservices in a serverless environment.

    One limitation with this approach is that to secure such a API Gateway + Lambda service, AWS relies on API keys, which have to be sent in the form of a custom request header X-API-Key, lest we implement yet another separate Lambda function to serve as the so called…

  12. include message metadata in webhook/slash http requests to help tell bot messages apart from human messages

    It is currently not possible for a webhook/slash command webservice (a bot) to tell whether a message came from another bot (or this bot) or from a human.

    See also the GitHub discussion: https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/issues/9719#issuecomment-438320149

    Summary:

    Even though it is usually possible to set the displayed username to an arbitrary value when programmatically creating a post, this username is ignored when the created message is sent out via a webhook, leaving a lot of opportunity for loops.

    There are 4 ways new messages (posts) can be created:
    - Human types them
    - Incoming Webhook
    - Outgoing Webhook bot response.
    - API…

  14. Interactive buttons supporting emoji

    If the text outside the interactive button is an emoji, eg. ":smile:", it gets rendered as the smile emoji. However, if this text is inside an interactive button, the test ":smile:" gets rendered.

    Similarly when dealing with "£" signs, "£" renders correctly outside the button, but inside just the text is rendered.

    It would be good if emoji and other HTML shortcuts could be implemented within the buttons themselves.

  15. *.mov in-line or pop up player support

    In our Mattermost 5.0 instance:

    mp4 videos have a play button to launch a preview pop-up.
    youtube video (link) will launch an in-line preview
    However, .mov files have a play button (just like the mp4) but links to download and not preview.

    Question: is there a way to enable .mov file preview in-line or pop-up?

    Thanks,
    Ryan

  16. Archiving direct messages

    It would be great to have the possibility to archive direct messages, the same way it is possible to archive chans. Or is it already possible?

  17. An External Apps Marketplace.

    The idea would be to create a standard bridge and a marketplace to integrate with Mattermost external applications.
    It could be a calendar (like in an other idea) or files management systems, gantt ... or many useful apps, based on the oauth2 authentication of Mattermost

  18. provide system token authentication

    We run a couple of scripts that access the Mattermost API, e.g. a script that posts a message to all Town Squares in all teams on our server and a script that creates user accounts (as we allow email login but disable email account creation so that we can control who creates accounts on the server). Right now we have the personal auth token of an administrator hardcoded in the scripts, but obviously this is suboptimal in case the administrator leaves the company, and messages appear to be sent from said administrator.

    Therefore it would be great if administrators could…

  19. Outgoing Webhooks triggered by regex or simple pattern

    At the moment its only possible to trigger Outgoing Webhooks if you set a channel and/or set a keyword or a string with keyword.

    if would be great if we can have a trigger for (perl) regex and for Character occur in text.

    So its possible to check for #123 and trigger a webhook to get information from ex. openproject.

    If I understand it correctly there are not so many things to change.
    Add the options here
    https://github.com/mattermost/mattermost-server/blob/8491ba5740e2d9942b2612ce06aef90bb10ad4c0/app/webhook.go#L52-L65

  20. 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....
