MS Teams integration FAQs

How many Microsoft Teams channels can you have?

There is no limit to the number of Microsoft Teams channels. You can select a distinct channel for every instance of the Microsoft Teams integration in your runbooks.

Can one message be posted in multiple channels and can it be sent to users too?

Our integration targets one channel, therefore the message will be posted to the channel that has been configured with the integration. The message can only be sent to channels and not users.

Can I set up two different Microsoft Team integrations; one that is triggered manually and another that is triggered automatically?

Yes, you can set up different Microsoft Teams integrations for manual and automatic use cases. Please contact our Customer Success team to set up the integrations.

Is the Microsoft Teams integration secure?

Absolutely. The integration uses the OAuth2 protocol recommended by Microsoft. Users are authorized and authenticated directly with Microsoft Azure. The actions of searching through channels and sending a message are performed using the Microsoft Graph API.
