Configure a Microsoft Teams Integration

Set up Microsoft Teams to receive notifications

Updated over a week ago

You will need Superuser access to use the System Settings page, which is required to complete this process.

Like with Slack, Microsoft Teams can receive notifications to a specific channel. To do this, you will need to set up an incoming webhook on the channel where you wish to receive messages.

  1. Complete the process listed in the Microsoft Teams Documentation for creating a new Incoming Webhook. Keep your unique link handy as you will need it in subsequent steps.

  2. In DefectDojo, navigate to Configuration > System Settings from the sidebar.

  3. Check the Enable Microsoft Teams notifications box. This will open a hidden section of the form, labeled ‘Msteams url’.

  4. Paste the URL (created in Step 1) in the Msteams url box. Your Teams app will now listen to incoming Notifications from DefectDojo and post them to the channel you selected.

Notes on the Teams integration

  • Slack cannot apply any RBAC rules to the Teams channel that you are creating, and will therefore be sharing notifications for the entire DefectDojo system. There is no method in DefectDojo to filter system-wide Teams notifications by a Product Type, Product or Engagement.

  • DefectDojo cannot send personal notifications to users on Microsoft Teams.
