Microsoft Teams Integration

Microsoft Teams Integration

Set up SupportCenter Plus integration with Microsoft Teams to leverage the collaboration app from Microsoft as an additional channel for IT and enterprise support. This integration creates a SupportCenter Plus bot that enables users to view their SupportCenter Plus tickets, view pending approvals, and chat with support reps―all from within their Microsoft Teams accounts. By bringing a host of SupportCenter Plus capabilities like incident management into Microsoft Teams, SupportCenter Plus bridges the gap between IT help desk teams and end users.

Pre-requisites for Integration

Make sure SupportCenter Plus is hosted on a domain with a valid certificate, run on HTTPS, and publicly accessible. You can also use the Application Proxy feature in Azure to host SupportCenter Plus publicly. Learn more.

Create Cards in SupportCenter Plus Bot

You can create cards to be displayed in Microsoft Teams by initiating the respective command using global functions.

Create Cards to Add Request Tasks

To define the card layout


  • Go to Admin > Developer Space > Custom Function > Global Function.

  •  Click New to create a global function and paste the card JSON.

  1. test='{"attachments":[{"contentType":"application/","content":{"$schema":"htn":"sendActivity","type":"message"}';
  2. t=Map();
  3. t=test.toMap();
  4. return t;

Sample card JSON


  • The created card will appear as follows

To define the action buttons

  • Go to Admin > Developer Space > Custom Function > Global Functions > New.

  • Create a global function using the code mentioned below:

data = Collection();





input_data = {"task":data};

info input_data;

response = invokeurl



type :POST



info response;


responseStatus = response.get("response_status");

returnObj = Collection();

if(responseStatus.get("messages").get(0).get("status_code") == 200) {

returnObj.insert("action":"sendActivity","type":"message","text": "New Task added successfully to Id "+id);


else {

returnObj.insert("action":"sendActivity","type":"message","text":"Failed to add");


return returnObj;

On clicking the Create Task button present in the card the task for the specified request gets added in SupportCenter Plus. A success message is returned along with the ID.

Enable Group Notifications

After the bot is added to a team, SupportCenter Plus will be able to access the channels present in the team.

You can map the various support groups present in SupportCenter Plus with respective teams channels. When a request is assigned to a support group, the bot will trigger a notification to the respective channel.

  • Go to the Notifications tab in the Microsoft Teams Configuration page.

  • Select Enable Support group notifications to send alerts in the channel.

  • Map the support group and the teams channel from the respective drop-down. Use the Add icon to map multiple groups with their respective channels.

  • Click Update to save the mapped relationships.

Quick Create Requests

You can create requests in SupportCenter Plus from within Microsoft teams using the quick create feature. This feature works just like the Quick Create feature in SupportCenter Plus.


To create a request using this feature,

  • Execute the command /create request.
    Execute the command /overview and click Quick Create.

  • Enter the subject and description of the request and click Create Request. Click Cancel to abort the process.





The quick create option uses the default request template to create requests. If the default template has mandatory fields, you can update a request template without any mandatory fields in the database using the following query:

  1. Update BOTCOMMANDS set configuration='{"template":{"name":"<template_name>"}}' where internalname='createRequest';

Here <template_name> is the name of the template to be updated.

Perform Approval Actions on Requests

You can approve/reject a request or change in SupportCenter Plus from within the teams app. To do this,

  • Execute the pending approvals command from the chat window. This displays all your pending approvals as individual cards.

  • Add relevant comments and perform the required action for each approval.


Using Request View Tab

Users can track their SupportCenter Plus tickets under the Request View tab in the SupportCenter Plus app in Microsoft Teams.
