Microsoft Teams

Setup Guide

You can find your Microsoft Teams application credentials by visiting your Microsoft Azure Portal.

You'll need the following information to set up your Microsoft Teams app with Paragon Connect:

  • Client ID

  • Client Secret

  • Scopes Requested

Prerequisites

Add the Redirect URL to your Microsoft Teams app

Paragon provides a redirect URL to send information to your app. To add the redirect URL to your Microsoft Teams app:

1. Copy the link under "Redirect URL" in your integration settings in Paragon. The Redirect URL is:

https://passport.useparagon.com/oauth

2. Log in to the Microsoft Azure Portal using your Microsoft account.

3. Navigate to All Services > App Registrations and select your application.

4. Select Authentication from the sidebar.

5. Under Platform configurations, press the "Add a platform" button.

6. Select the Web platform.

7. Paste the Redirect URL from Step 1 under Redirect URIs.

8. Press the Save button at the top of the page.

Generate a Client Secret

Since Microsoft Teams does not automatically provide you with a Client Secret for your application, we'll need to make one. To get your Client Secret:

1. Navigate to Manage > Certificates & secrets in the sidebar.

2. Under Client Secrets, press the + New client secret button.

3. Name your client credentials and select an expiry that works best for your application. Press Add to create your credentials.

4. Copy the displayed Client Secret under the Value column.

Add your Microsoft Teams app to Paragon

1. Select Microsoft Teams from the Integrations Catalog.

2. Under Integrations > Connected Integrations > {YOUR_APP} > Settings, fill out your credentials from the end of Step 1 and Step 2 in their respective sections:

  • Client ID: Found under Essentials > Application (client) ID on your Microsoft Azure Portal app page.

  • Client Secret: Found at the end of Step 2.

  • Permissions: Select the scopes you've requested for your application.

Press the blue "Connect" button to save your credentials.

Note: You should only add the scopes you've requested in your application page to Paragon.

Connecting to Microsoft Teams

Once your users have connected their Microsoft Teams account, you can use the Paragon SDK to access the Microsoft Teams API on behalf of connected users.

See the Microsoft Teams REST API documentation for their full API reference.

Any Microsoft Teams API endpoints can be accessed with the Paragon SDK as shown in this example.

// You can find your project ID in the Overview tab of any Integration
// Authenticate the user
paragon.authenticate(<ProjectId>, <UserToken>);
// List Channels
paragon.request("microsoftTeams", "channels", {
method: "GET",
});
// Send message in a channel
paragon.request("microsoftTeams", "channels/<channel-id>/messages", {
method: "POST",
body: { "content": "Hello World!" }
});

Building Microsoft Teams workflows

Once your Microsoft Teams account is connected, you can add steps to perform the following actions:

  • Send message in channel

  • Send message in chat

When creating messages in Microsoft Teams, you can reference data from previous steps by typing {{ to invoke the variable menu.
