In order to use the Backlog-Microsoft Teams integration, you’ll first need to install the Backlog app to your Teams.
Click on Apps in your Teams app, search for “Backlog” and add it:
After adding the Backlog app, a Backlog app button is displayed at the bottom of your message bar.
Tip: You can use the Backlog button here to add issues. But for full functionality (like add/delete notification settings), please first add the Backlog bot to your Team/Chat by following the instructions below.
Find the Backlog app in Apps, and click on the dropdown menu for the options. Click Add to a team/chat, then select the specific Team/Chat to add the Backlog bot.
After you have added the Backlog bot to your Team/Chat channel, you will be able to add/delete notification settings using the above-mentioned Backlog button.
You will also be able to use the bot commands below
When the Backlog bot is added to your Teams/Chats, you can @mention the bot (@backlog) to find it, then select it, and enter any of the following commands:
|login||Log in to your Backlog account|
|logout||Log out from the current Backlog account|
|add issue||Add an issue to Backlog|
|add notification settings||Add project notification settings on Backlog to receive project’s notifications on Teams.|
|delete notification settings||Remove project notification settings on Backlog|
|help||Show help list|
Example of a bot command:
Type @backlog help in the chat — to bring up the Help message.
- To add issues or add/delete notification settings, you’ll need to log in to your Backlog account via the bot. Enter the bot command login in the chat (e.g. @backlog login)
- When you’ve logged out via the bot in Teams, you’ll still be able to receive notifications.
