Create and add an outgoing webhook in Teams

Create and add an outgoing webhook in Teams

For you technical users, you don't need to build a full-fledged Bot Framework service to integrate a service into a channel. Try a lightweight "outgoing webhook," instead. For example, you can create a webhook to look up a daily weather report or remind you to break for lunch.

Of course, if you are looking to build a more advanced app, we can help you do that, too.

Create and add an outgoing webhook

Use a webhook in different teams

Create and add an outgoing webhook

Go to the team name where you want to add the webhook and click More options More options button > Manage team. On the Apps tab, click Create an outgoing webhook in the bottom right corner.

Name your webhook, provide an address, description, and profile picture, then click Create.

Important: As part of this process, you'll be assigned a security token. You'll need this token to verify that your message is coming from a trusted source (Teams). We'll only show you the token once, so copy it and store it someplace safe.

For a more detailed technical walkthrough of creating a webhook, see Outgoing webhooks in Microsoft Teams.

If you want to go even deeper, the Microsoft Teams developer platform has info and instructions for creating custom apps.

Use a webhook in different teams

Once you add an outgoing webhook to a specific team, you won't be able to chat with it automatically from other teams. But you can set up a webhook in another team that integrates with the same service. You'll need to go through the setup process each time you want to add your webhook to a new team.
