  1. 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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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!

  5. 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 ;)

  6. 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.

  7. Zoom - Automatically Generate a new meeting ID when hit the Zoom Button

    We've noticed a subtle difference between the zoom integration under Slack vs under Mattermost.

    With Slack creating a new zoom with the /zoom command created a brand new meeting id. With Mattemost creating a new zoom with the "Start Zoom Meeting Now" always creates a meeting based on the user's "Personal Meeting ID". i.e. With the recycled meeting id, anyone who know my Personal Meeting ID can hop onto any future zoom meetings I start. We had that accidentally happen this week.

    Anyway we can get the the functionality implemented where a new zoom meeting id is generated everytime I…

  8. 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?

  9. 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

  10. Allow Mattermost to pick up my availability status from other applications

    I use Outlook and Jabber at the moment, and whilst I'm trying to push as much communication as possible to MM, there are times when this isn't possible. If i'm in a meeting, or on a call, it would be nice if MM could be notified of your status change and update your availability. It can be quite frustrating when you're presenting your desktop and you're getting popup notifications, MM should have the ability to figure this out and put me in DND.

  11. 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…

  12. 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

  13. 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....

  14. Send user name to end-points when interactive button was pushed

    Currently, when interactive button was pushed, only user-id is sent to the end-points.
    And this causes unnecessary operations on end-points side.
    (need to search user name from user id via Web API of Mattermost)

    It seems better to send some information such as / command sends.

  15. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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:
