Often when developing, I need to know who’s checking in what code and what changes are being made. At Axway, we use Microsoft Teams for communication and Gitlab to store code in a repository.
Link Gitlab and Microsoft Teams
I wanted to combine these two things, so I get notified whenever changes are being made to our codebase. It’s an easy set up so here is how I did it.
Open Gitlab in a browser
- Open Repo
- Go to Settings > Integrations
- Scroll down to Project Services and find “Microsoft Teams Notification”
- Now switch over to teams. Leave the Gitlab window open in your browser.
Next open Teams
- Create or find your Teams.
- Next to the team name look for the “…” and click on it.
- Select Connectors under the … menu.
- Search for “Incoming Webhooks” and click the “Add” button.
- Scroll to the bottom and click that “Add” Button.
- Give it a name and add an image if you want, then click “Create.”
- Scroll down to the URL field and copy it. Then, navigate back to Gitlab and paste it in the webhook field.
Back to Gitlab
- Past the URL you just copied in the webhook field and select all the checkboxes you wish to receive notification for.
- Select the “Activate” checkbox.
- Save Changes
That’s it! You now should see messages when you check in or change files.
