Integrate with Microsoft Teams

The feature described in this article is currently rolling out to some Jira Service Management Cloud customers. It may not yet be visible or available on your site.

What does the integration offer?

With Jira Service Management’s ChatOps app for Microsoft Teams, you can receive notifications for the alerts you care about, perform actions on the alerts, and manage some on-call work from your Teams channels — using buttons or commands mentioning the app @Atlassian ChatOps.

You can add multiple Microsoft Teams integrations to streamline alert notifications. For example, you can create an integration that notifies a Teams channel only about high-priority alerts, and another integration that notifies a different Teams channel about low-priority alerts.

How does the integration work?

Once your Jira Service Management site is connected to a Microsoft tenant, the Atlassian ChatOps app can be added to Standard channels where you’d like to receive alert notifications. Private channels aren’t supported.

  • Jira admins can set up Microsoft Teams integrations for the site (to receive alerts that have no responder team added).

  • Team admins can set up Microsoft Teams integrations for their teams (notifications will be sent only for alerts on which their team is added as a responder).

Set up the integration

Before you set up the integration,

  • Make sure you’re the team admin or the Jira admin

  • Connect your Microsoft tenant with your Jira site so you can use it for your integrations. Read how to connect your Microsoft tenant

  • Make sure you’ve created the Microsoft Teams channel to receive alert notifications.

Add Microsoft Teams integration

If you're on the Free or Standard plan on Jira Service Management, you can only add this integration from your team’s Operations page.

Adding a Microsoft Teams integration from your team’s Operations page will only let you send notifications on Microsoft Teams for your team’s alerts.

To get notifications for alerts that have no responder teams assigned, you’ll need access to the feature through Settings (gear icon) > Products (under JIRA SETTINGS) > OPERATIONS > Global integrations — this feature is available only on Premium and Enterprise plans.

Add Microsoft Teams to your Jira site

  1. Go to SettingsProducts.

  2. Select Integrations from the sidebar (under Operations). You’ll be able to view already added integrations of all teams on the Jira site.

  3. Select Add integration.

  4. Select Microsoft Teams from the list of all integrations.

 

Add Microsoft Teams for your team

  1. On the team’s profile page, scroll to the Operations section and select Go to operations to view alerting and on-call capabilities for your team.

  2. Select Integrations from the sidebar, and select Add integration.

  3. Select Microsoft Teams from the list of all integrations.

Microsoft Teams alerting integration

Fill in some important details for your integration. To edit these details later, except for the integration name, you’ll need to reset the integration. Read how to reset your Microsoft Teams integration

  • Integration name: Name your integration to easily find it later.

  • Responder team: The integration will send alerts for which the team you select is a responder. You can select ‘None’ to get notifications for alerts with no responder teams.

  • Microsoft tenant: Select the Microsoft tenant where your channels exist.

  • Microsoft team: Select your team on Microsoft Teams whose channels you’d like to use for this integration.

  • Microsoft Teams channel: Select the channel to receive alert notifications from this integration.

  • Select Continue to save the integration. It will be ON by default.

Giving permission to Jira Service Management

The Atlassian ChatOps app will need permission to post alerts to your channels in Microsoft Teams. Select Give permission to complete this step, if requested, and continue to setting up your integration.

Configure your integration as per your team’s preferences:

  1. Edit integration settings to choose if alert actions show as buttons and to include additional alert fields in Microsoft Teams messages.

  2. Add filters to receive only certain alerts. No filters are added by default. Read more about alert filters

  3. Select the alert activity to get notified of on Microsoft Teams. All alert activity is selected by default.

Reset your Microsoft Teams integration

Reset Microsoft Teams integration option in more options

It’s not possible to directly change the selected Microsoft Teams workspace or the channel for an integration. But you can reset your integration to start over.

Once reset, your integration’s settings will be erased and alerts will no longer be sent to your Microsoft Teams channel. You’d have to set up the integration from scratch.

To reset your integration,

  1. Go to Integrations on your team or your site’s Operations.

  2. Open your Microsoft Teams integration from the list of all created integrations.

  3. Select the More actions option and select Reset.

  4. Once you’ve read the warning message explaining the implications of resetting the integration, select Confirm.

  5. Wait until you’re redirected to start over from scratch.
