Overview

The Get Chat activity calls the Microsoft Graph GetChat API to retrieve the properties of a specified chat (ChatId).

After retrieving the chat, the activity returns its properties in a Chat object (Chat) that you can use as an input variable in subsequent activities (e.g., Get Messages, Send Message, etc.).

Unlike the Get Chats activity, which returns a list of chats the user is a member of (Chat[]), the Get Chat activity retrieves a single, specified chat (Chat) using the provided ChatId. If you don't have the ChatId, you can use the Get Chats activity to get the same chat properties.

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of 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 Chat.Id value (e.g., Get Chats).
  4. Add the Get Chat activity inside the Microsoft Teams Scope activity.
  5. Enter a value for the Input property.
  6. Create and enter a Chat variable for your Output property.
  7. Run the activity.
    • Your input property values are sent to the GetChat API.
    • The API returns the Chat value to your output property variable.

  • The variable you create for this property can be used as an input variable in subsequent activities (e.g., Get Messages, Send Message, etc.).
  • The Chat object includes multiple properties and that you can use in other activities.The example image below shows some of the properties that you can return.
  • Note - some properties listed in the designer are not applicable to the Chat object (e.g., ODatatType). For a list of the applicable Team properties, visit the links above.
