Format messages and post to Microsoft Teams.

Project description

pymsteams

Python Wrapper Library to send requests to Microsoft Teams Webhooks. Microsoft refers to these messages as Connector Cards. A message can be sent with only the main Connector Card, or additional sections can be included into the message.

This library uses Webhook Connectors for Microsoft Teams. Please visit the following Microsoft Documentation link for instructions on how to obtain the correct url for your Channel: https://dev.outlook.com/Connectors/GetStarted#creating-messages-through-office-365-connectors-in-microsoft-teams

Please refer to the Microsoft Documentation for the most up to date screenshots. https://dev.outlook.com/connectors/reference

Installation

Install with pip:

pip install pymsteams

Usage

Creating ConnectorCard Messages

This is the simplest implementation of pymsteams. It will send a message to the teams webhook url with plain text in the message.

import pymsteams

# You must create the connectorcard object with the Microsoft Webhook URL
myTeamsMessage = pymsteams.connectorcard("<Microsoft Webhook URL>")

# Add text to the message.
myTeamsMessage.text("this is my text")

# send the message.
myTeamsMessage.send()

Optional Formatting Methods for Cards

Add a title

myTeamsMessage.title("This is my message title")

Add a link button

myTeamsMessage.addLinkButton("This is the button Text", "https://github.com/rveachkc/pymsteams/")

Change URL

This is useful in the event you need to post the same message to multiple rooms.

myTeamsMessage.newhookurl("<My New URL>")

Preview your object

This is a simple print command to view your connector card message object before sending.

myTeamsMessage.printme()

Adding sections to the Connector Card Message

To create a section and add various formatting elements

# create the section
myMessageSection = pymsteams.cardsection()

# Section Title
myMessageSection.title("Section title")

# Activity Elements
myMessageSection.activityTitle("my activity title")
myMessageSection.activitySubtitle("my activity subtitle")
myMessageSection.activityImage("http://i.imgur.com/c4jt321l.png")
myMessageSection.activityText("This is my activity Text")

# Facts are key value pairs displayed in a list.
myMessageSection.addFact("this", "is fine")
myMessageSection.addFact("this is", "also fine")

# Section Text
myMessageSection.text("This is my section text")

# Section Images
myMessageSection.addImage("http://i.imgur.com/c4jt321l.png", ititle="This Is Fine")

# Add your section to the connector card object before sending
myTeamsMessage.addSection(myMessageSection)

You may also add multiple sections to a connector card message as well.

# Create Section 1
Section1 = pymsteams.cardsection()
Section1.text("My First Section")

# Create Section 2
Section2 = pymsteams.cardsection()
Section2.text("My First Section")

# Add both Sections to the main card object
myTeamsMessage.addSection(Section1)
myTeamsMessage.addSection(Section2)

# Then send the card
myTeamsMessage.send()

Please use Github issues to report any bugs or request enhancements.

Testing

In order to test in your environment with pytest, set the environment variable MS_TEAMS_WEBHOOK to the Microsoft Teams Webhook url you would like to use.

Then, from the root of the repo, install the requirements and run pytest.

pip install -r dev-requirements.txt
pytest

This will send two MS Teams messages describing how they are formatted. Manually validate that the message comes through as expected.
