Create Channel

Overview

The Create Channel activity calls the Microsoft Graph CreateChannel API to create a new channel (Name) in your specified team (TeamId).

After creating your new channel, the activity outputs its properties in a Channel object that you can use as input variables in subsequent activities (e.g., Channel.Id in Get Messages, Send Message, etc.).

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Microsoft Teams Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a Team.Id value (e.g.,Get Teams).
  4. Add the Create Channel activity inside the Microsoft Teams Scope activity.
  5. Enter values for the Input properties.
  6. Create and enter a Channel variable for your Output property.
  7. Run the activity.
    • Your input property values are sent to the CreateChannel API.
    • The API returns the Channel value to your output property variable.
