Installation and Configuration

Installation

The Mattermost MS Teams Meetings plugin is provided in the Mattermost Plugin Marketplace. Once enabled, clicking the video icon in a Mattermost channel invites team members to join an MS Teams meeting, hosted using the credentials of the user who initiated the call.

Requirements

    Mattermost Server v5.26+ is required.
    Mattermost Enterprise Edition E20 is required.

Manual Installation

If your server doesn't have access to the internet, you can download the latest plugin binary release and upload it to your server via System Console > Plugin Management. The releases on this page are the same versions available on the Plugin Marketplace.
