Get Messages

Overview

The Get Messages activity calls the Microsoft Graph ListChatMessages or ListChannelMessages API
to retrieve all messages from a specified chat (ChatId) or channel (ChannelId) and team (TeamID).

After performing the search, the activity outputs the properties in a ChatMessage[] object (Message) that you can use as input variables in subsequent activities (e.g., ChatMessage(0).Id in Get Message Replies, Reply To Message, etc.).

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. Complete one of the following two options (A or B):
    A. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a Chat.Id value (e.g., Get Chats).
    B. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs a Team.Id value (e.g.,Get Teams) AND an activity or external process that outputs a Channel.Id value (e.g., Get Channels).
  4. Add the Get Messages activity inside the Microsoft Teams Scope activity.
  5. Enter values for the Channel OR Chat properties.
  6. Create and enter a ChatMessage[] variable for your Output property.
  7. Run the activity.
