Microsoft Teams Integration - Known Issues and Workarounds

 

  • Team Notification Cards are created on data change using fixed templates that follows the Microsoft Guidelines. It is planned to add custom templates with future releases.
  • You can use the field names in the symbolic data query and the Cloud Connector data mapping feature to provide user-friendly column names (different from data source) in the card. Important: The data query is not optional. A data query with field names must be provided for mapping. Select * does not work in this case.
  • You should provide a a link to newly added or changed data items in the source system whenever possible. Please make use of Dynamic Columns for this to calculate the link.
  • Currently the Layer2 Cloud Connector is not specifically listed in the Microsoft Teams connectors list. It is planned to add it to the Microsoft Store later on.
  • The Webhook URL in the connection string will validate even if it is incorrect as it cannot be checked without sending a card to post. If during a sync attempt you get the error "Could not write ...", then check to make sure the URL for the Webhook is correct.
  • The solution does not provide any interactivity, like e.g. the Microsoft Teams T-Bot. It is just about sending change notifications to the team with the current release.
