    Add an option to set team or server-wide defaults for Display settings.

    Thanks Neil, highly appreciate the feedback. There's been a fair amount of internal discussion around this.

    Your help sharing more details would extremely helpful. About how many users are you aiming to serve? Are you hosting for internal use, or opening this to clients/customers, etc.? May I ask which industry you're in?

    Thanks Simon, definitely appreciate your offer to help. While the question of direction involves the code, internally we also consider design and support.

    Regarding (1) and (2) GitLab SSO is a single provider that's manually tested and verifed in each monthly release of Mattermost, and it's repeatedly a consideration in other features we build.

    As a product, we're focused on the design principle of "fast, obvious, forgiving" (http://www.mattermost.org/design-principles/) and that sets a quality requirement on SSO.

    A specific provider means we're able to test, document, verify, support, repro and help troubleshoot specific issues. A generic provider is significantly more expensive to support, and there's potential to expose Mattermost users to security issues in 3rd party OAuth implementations, especially if email validation isn't done correctly.

    There's a corner case where the interface for the specific provider happens to be compatible with other providers, such as GitHub and GitHub Enterprise OAuth.

    In this case, there's "unofficial" documentation for variations--for example, if you use GitHub SSO each user needs to make sure their email address is set to "public" whereas that's not a requirement in GitHub Enterprise--and these variations are documented, e.g. see Step 7 here: http://docs.mattermost.com/deployment/sso-gitlab.html#github-unofficial

    Could you help share more about your use case? Curious what other approaches could be considered.

    Would also welcome use case feedback from others who upvoted this feature,

    Moving discussions on generic OAuth from different places to this feature idea forum post

    Matterircd: https://github.com/42wim/matterircd/issues/29#issuecomment-176479267

    Mattermost platform:
    https://github.com/mattermost/platform/pull/1938#issuecomment-176077706

    Forum:
    https://forum.mattermost.org/t/mattermost-oauth/588

    Mattermost core team discussed this at length and, right now, we're not ready to make a commitment to generic OAuth SSO.

    Our thinking is that:

    1) After its implementation, the core team would need to divert energy to test, document, support and troubleshoot generic OAuth means cutting other features.

    2) Applications for Mattermost (e.g. native iOS and Android apps, connectors to XMPP, Matrix, IRC, etc.) may feel burdened to build support OAuth which could mean cutting their own planned features or even being discouraged to build in the first place.

    This said, we're not experts on OAuth, and other applications do support it. We wanted to post here to get feedback from the community--and encourage upvotes from teams who would prioritize this over other features.

    Is this covered by the ability to delete a team from the command line?

    Thanks Martin,

    Could you share more about the use case?

    Trying to understand the priority of this feature versus other options, e.g.:

    1. Having a team leader just say "@channel everyone please enter your First and Last names so it's easier to identify everyone."

    2. Turning System Console > Privacy Setting > Show Email Address to "true"

    Hi Walter, and anyone watching for this feature,

    Contributions highly welcome for anyone who wants to add to the Web Service API documentation: https://github.com/mattermost/docs/blob/master/source/developer/web-service.md

    It's definitely used by Community Applications: http://www.mattermost.org/community-applications/

    If each developer were to add one or two methods, it would be a huge benefit to the community. If it's your first PR on a Mattermost project, we've got a custom-designed Mug for you: https://forum.mattermost.org/t/limited-edition-mattermost-mugs/143

    Right now the best way to understand the Web Service is to examine the Golang driver, or possibly the Javascript driver.

    Thanks Michael, here's a start to the documentation: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/blob/master/doc/developer/API.md

    Incoming webhooks in Mattermost v1.1 (available since 10/16) are largely Slack compatible and you can view examples here: http://www.mattermost.org/community-applications/

    Outgoing webhooks are on master, some apps from the link above use them already, and they'll be out in Mattermost v1.2 on 11/16

    Mattermost now ships monthly on the 16th.

    We're almost there, we demo'd the APIs and examples internally today, just need some time to finish the documentation. Mattermost v1.0 is available to download: http://www.mattermost.org/open-source-slack-alternative-reaches-1-0/

    Mattermost v1.1 is planned for Oct 16, and from then on we plan to ship on the 16th of the month regularly.

    Syntax highlighting is available starting in v1.2.1. Updated the title of this feature request to focus on adding line numbers.

    Thanks Marenz,

    myshov, there's another GitHub-Mattermost implementation from http://soft-dev.org/ at King's College London: https://github.com/softdevteam/mattermost-github-integration

    Just to add, if anyone wants to build this, you can use either Mattermost outgoing webhooks or APIs/drivers described at: https://github.com/mattermost/platform/blob/master/doc/developer/API.md

    There are several open source projects that do two-way interaction with Mattermost channels that could be used as a reference for this as well:

    https://www.npmjs.com/package/hubot-mattermost
    https://github.com/42wim/matterircd
    https://github.com/42wim/matterbridge

    From Kevin Coletta (from the previous Feature Request forum): There should probably be a simple solution for building this out for development so people can contribute. I haven't used docker much before so it's probably just my inexperience there, but if I want to try adding a feature or changing something up, it's not clear how I can do that at the moment.
