    Hi All,

    Do you have MS Teams VBO created?
    May you share it with me?

    Thanks.

    Hi there, 

    I took a quick search on our Digital Exchange, https://digitalexchange.blueprism.com/ but I was not able to find anything available. Microsoft Teams would likely be leveraged through a graph API call and work in conjunction with a MS 365 set of commands. If you don't mind my asking, what specific features and capabilities are you looking to get out of a Teams VBO, as it's possible others may have these capabilities and I can pass the feedback onto our internal teams.

    Hi Charles,

    Good day.

    Thank you for your message.

    Yes, I've also searched for DX but there's none.

    I would like to know the GET part (getting a message for specific Teams' group or channel). I already knew how to POST a message for specific Teams' group using Webhook.

    If you have the GET Teams part, please let me know and that's why I'm also asking if there's someone here who already spied MS Teams so that I could reuse it.

    Thanks.

    The short of it is that there are two ways to go about this:

    1. Leverage PowerAutomate
    2. Leverage the Graph API (requires access to be granted by an organization admin)

    I've heard mention that our CoE currently uses option 1 for some of their processes. We're investigating the second route, but it's a slow process.

    Hi @Ami Barrett, Greetings. I had come across one requirement to use Microsoft Teams in our process and type in some messages​ to specific id as per rules. Would be great if you let us know how to integrate with Blue Prism and make use of it. I am using BP 6.61 version and do not see any in-built VBO for MS Teams. Thanks in advance.

    As you say, we do not currently have a VBO for this available. The only routes I know of for this entail the two listed in the previous post.

    Hi ,

    I am also looking for some help in order to send automated notification through Teams. I need to send message based on the email ID coming from excel hence it would not work with Webhook connector since in webhook, prerequisites is to create teams/channel first.

    Is that right understanding?
