Connect New Relic CodeStream to your Microsoft Teams channel.
When you post a codemark your teammates will get notified via the activity feed, and potentially via email. Sometimes, though, you might want to share to Microsoft Teams as well. This would allow you to reach people who haven’t yet joined CodeStream, or maybe don’t spend a lot of time in their IDE.
- Click here to install the CodeStream app or go to apps in your Microsoft Teams sidebar and search for CodeStream.
- Once installed you should see the following popup for the CodeStream app, click the Add button. Note, do not expand it and select the options to add to team or chat. Simply click Add.
- This will take you to your private chat with the CodeStream bot, and you’ll see the CodeStream logo appear in the Teams sidebar. Type
signinin this chat and submit.
- A post from the bot will appear in the stream, along with a Sign in button.
- Click the button and you’re taken to the web and prompted to sign into CodeStream.
- After signing in, you're given a token that you’ll need to copy and paste into your chat with the CodeStream bot back in MS Teams.
- Paste the token into the chat and submit.
Add the token directly into the chat.
- Go to a channel in which you’d like to share, type
@, and then select Get bots in the popup.
- Select the CodeStream bot from the list (you can search for it if you need to), and then click Add.
- Return to the channel and @mention the CodeStream bot with the
connectcommand. Repeat this in any channel that you'd like to share to.
Use this command to connect the bot.
- Once you get a confirmation, you’re ready to share to Teams from CodeStream.
- When you return to CodeStream you'll now be able to share to the channels that you just connected.
Select a channel to share to from your IDE.
When you share to Microsoft Teams, not only does it notify your teammates about the codemark, but they can use it to jump directly into their IDEs to participate in the conversation on CodeStream.
This will open the codemark in their designated IDE.
Click Open in IDE to view both the code and the discussion right inside your IDE. You’re taken through a CodeStream web page where you can choose which IDE to open. CodeStream remembers your selection the next time you view a discussion from the same repository. You’re then taken to the appropriate source file in your IDE, scrolled to the relevant block of code, with the discussion displayed in the CodeStream pane. If you don’t happen to have that repository open in your IDE, CodeStream will automatically open the source file for you (assuming you’ve opened that repository previously, with CodeStream installed, so that we know where to find it).
If you’re using a JetBrains IDE, install the Toolbox app so that CodeStream can deep link into the IDE.
If the code block is from a repository hosted on GitHub, Bitbucket, or GitLab, this button will take you to the corresponding block of code on that hosting service.
