Configuring Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams webhooks are fully integrated with Uptime.com to allow you to push alerts to their platform. To get started, you will first need to set up a Microsoft Teams account at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/microsoft-teams/group-chat-software

Uptime.com requires the following:

  • Webhook URL from Microsoft Teams
  • Name for the integration

Integration Functionality

Integration with Microsoft Teams allows for the following:

  • When an alert is created or resolved in Uptime, an alert is pushed to a specific channel in Microsoft Teams via webhook.

Integration Setup

First, log into your Microsoft Teams account. Navigate to the More Options button, or the Apps button, and search for or navigate to Incoming Webhook. Click Add to Team, and then select the Channel where webhook alerts will be posted.

You will be asked to name your webhook, and you can assign it an avatar image. Microsoft Teams will provide a Webhook URL once you click Create. Copy the webhook URL provided by Microsoft Teams.  

Return to Uptime.com. In order to activate the integration of Microsoft Teams within your Uptime account, you will go to Notifications>Integrations, then click New Profile. Select Microsoft Teams as the Provider Type

Paste the Webhook URL provided by Microsoft Teams into the designated field, and then click Save.

Once you have configured your Microsoft Teams integration, you will need to assign it to a contact. 

Assign Integration to Contacts

To add your integration to an existing contact, click on or type the name of the contact into the Assign to Contacts field within the integration setup screen. 

You can designate a new contact from within the integration setup. Simply enter the name of your new contact into the Assign to Contacts field, and select it as depicted below:

Uptime.com will create a new contact and assign the integration to it. You can find this contact when you click Notifications>Contact.

Assign Integration Contact to a Check

If you have created a new or dedicated contact for your integration, you will need to add it to specific checks. If you have assigned the integration to a contact that is already assigned to one (or more) checks, you may skip this step. 

Return to your Check’s Edit screen and assign this contact to the Contacts field to be notified of a downtime event. Alert data will appear in real time. 

Test Your Integration

Test your integration with one of the following two options:

  1. Force the Check assigned to your Integration to fail by altering it (HTTPS checks can use a misspelling of the domain, for example)

Click Notifications>Contacts, then click Actions>Test to send a test to the Contact.
