Microsoft Teams

A team-based communication platform from Microsoft.

Overview

The Microsoft Teams connector allows you to interact with groups, teams, channels, and users inside your Teams workspace.

Authentication

To begin using the connector, add a step in a workflow, and click New authentication in the step editor:

new-auth

In the window that appears, you can name your authentication and specify the scopes you want to include:

teams-auth

Click 'Add authentication' and you will then be set up and ready to go.

Query fields (for List operations)

Many List operations accept OData query fields that enable the user to customise the output. They are not available on all such operations, but where they are present they can make finding data much easier.

Select

The Select field allows you to specify which fields you want to be returned. If left blank, all fields in the output schema will be returned (if available). This enables you to cut out unnecessary information in responses from the Teams API.

teams-select

Filter

The Filter field allows the results of a List operation to be filtered according to user-defined criteria. For the operations that support this feature, there are two ways to define filters. The Query builder provides a template for simple queries:

teams-filter-builder

On the other hand, for more complex queries, you can also input a custom Query string, according to the guidance provided by Microsoft's documentation:

teams-filter-string

If you define multiple filters, you can specify how they are joined together using the Condition field:

teams-filter-condition

Selecting 'And' means that only results will be returned which match all specified filters, whereas selecting 'Or' means that any result will be returned if it matches at least one filter.
