Microsoft Teams Integration


Microsoft Teams is a tool for team-wide communication and messaging that integrates with a wide range of other tools in your environment, including OverOps. The integration between OverOps and Microsoft Teams is simple to set up.

When configured, Microsoft Teams integration enables you to view events detected by OverOps in the selected Microsoft Teams channel.


Event from OverOps in Microsoft Teams

The Microsoft Teams channel can display all events from your application, including the event type, name, and environment, as well as a link to the ARC screen in OverOps. Moreover, the you can also specify the filtering set (called "views" in the OverOps solution) to receive only specific types of events. The message also displays the call stack, and the server, JVM and deployment (if you named them) in which the error occurred. Click the event name to open the OverOps ARC screen, and further investigate its exact variable values.
