CircleCI PyPI version

Python Wrapper Library to send requests to Microsoft Teams Webhooks. Microsoft refers to these messages as Connector Cards. A message can be sent with only the main Connector Card, or additional sections can be included into the message.

This library uses Webhook Connectors for Microsoft Teams. Please visit the following Microsoft Documentation link for instructions on how to obtain the correct url for your Channel:

Please refer to the Microsoft Documentation for the most up to date screenshots.


Install with pip:

pip install pymsteams


Creating ConnectorCard Messages

This is the simplest implementation of pymsteams. It will send a message to the teams webhook url with plain text in the message. ```python import pymsteams

You must create the connectorcard object with the Microsoft Webhook URL

myTeamsMessage = pymsteams.connectorcard("")

Add text to the message.

myTeamsMessage.text("this is my text")

send the message.

myTeamsMessage.send() ```

Optional Formatting Methods for Cards

Add a title

myTeamsMessage.title("This is my message title")

Add a link button

myTeamsMessage.addLinkButton("This is the button Text", "")

Change URL

This is useful in the event you need to post the same message to multiple rooms.


Set Color Theme

This sets the theme color of the card. The parameter is expected to be a hex color code without the hash or the string red.


Preview your object

This is a simple print command to view your connector card message object before sending.


Adding sections to the Connector Card Message

To create a section and add various formatting elements ```python

create the section

myMessageSection = pymsteams.cardsection()

Section Title

myMessageSection.title("Section title")

Activity Elements

myMessageSection.activityTitle("my activity title") myMessageSection.activitySubtitle("my activity subtitle") myMessageSection.activityImage("") myMessageSection.activityText("This is my activity Text")

Facts are key value pairs displayed in a list.

myMessageSection.addFact("this", "is fine") myMessageSection.addFact("this is", "also fine")

Section Text

myMessageSection.text("This is my section text")

Section Images

myMessageSection.addImage("", ititle="This Is Fine")

Add your section to the connector card object before sending


You may also add multiple sections to a connector card message as well.

Create Section 1

Section1 = pymsteams.cardsection() Section1.text("My First Section")

Create Section 2

Section2 = pymsteams.cardsection() Section2.text("My Second Section")

Add both Sections to the main card object

myTeamsMessage.addSection(Section1) myTeamsMessage.addSection(Section2)

Then send the card

myTeamsMessage.send() ```

Adding potential actions to the Connector Card Message

To create a actions on which the user can interect with in MS Teams To find out more information on what actions can be used, please visit

myTeamsMessage = pymsteams.connectorcard("")

myTeamsPotentialAction1 = pymsteams.potentialaction(_name = "Add a comment") myTeamsPotentialAction1.addInput("TextInput","comment","Add a comment here",False) myTeamsPotentialAction1.addAction("HttpPost","Add Comment","https://..."")

myTeamsPotentialAction2 = pymsteams.potentialaction(_name = "Set due date") myTeamsPotentialAction2.addInput("DateInput","dueDate","Enter due date") myTeamsPotentialAction2.addAction("HttpPost","save","https://...")

myTeamsPotentialAction3 = pymsteams.potentialaction(_name = "Change Status") myTeamsPotentialAction3.choices.addChoices("In progress","0") myTeamsPotentialAction3.choices.addChoices("Active","1") myTeamsPotentialAction3.addInput("MultichoiceInput","list","Select a status",False) myTeamsPotentialAction3.addAction("HttpPost","Save","https://...")

myTeamsMessage.addPotentialAction(myTeamsPotentialAction1) myTeamsMessage.addPotentialAction(myTeamsPotentialAction2) myTeamsMessage.addPotentialAction(myTeamsPotentialAction3)

myTeamsMessage.summary("Test Message")


Adding HTTP Post to potential actions in the Connector Card Message

myTeamsMessage = pymsteams.connectorcard("")

myTeamsPotentialAction1 = pymsteams.potentialaction(_name = "Add a comment")

You can add a TextInput to your potential action like below - Please note the 2nd argment below as the id name

myTeamsPotentialAction1.addInput("TextInput","comment","Add a comment here",False)

we use the 2nd argument above as the id name to parse the values into the body post like below.

myTeamsPotentialAction1.addAction("HttpPost","Add Comment","https://...", "{{comment.value}}") myTeamsMessage.addPotentialAction(myTeamsPotentialAction1)

myTeamsMessage.summary("Test Message")



If you post anything via teams, you will get some Javascript encoding happening via the post - For example:

Posting this: {"name":"john", "comment" : "nice"}

Output will be: b'{\u0022name\u0022:\u0022john\u0022, \u0022comment\u0022 : \u0022nice\u0022}'

i solved this issue by decoding unicode escape for a custom rest backend.

Please use Github issues to report any bugs or request enhancements.

Troubleshooting HTTP response

This module is really just a nice wrapper pointed at the Microsoft API. To help troubleshoot missing messages, the requests response content is saved to the connectorcard class attribute


To get the last http status code: ```python import pymsteams

myTeamsMessage = pymsteams.connectorcard("") myTeamsMessage.text("this is my text") myTeamsMessage.send()

laststatuscode = myTeamsMessage.lasthttpstatus.status_code ```

More info on the Response Content is available in the requests documentation, link.


If the call to the Microsoft Teams webhook service fails, a

will be thrown.


In order to test in your environment with pytest, set the environment variable

to the Microsoft Teams Webhook url you would like to use.

Then, from the root of the repo, install the requirements and run pytest.

pip install -r dev-requirements.txt

This will send two MS Teams messages describing how they are formatted. Manually validate that the message comes through as expected.

Certificate Validation

In some situations, a custom CA bundle must be used. This can be set on class initialization, by setting the verify parameter.

import pymsteams

set custom ca bundle

msg = pymsteams.connectorcard("", verify="/path/to/file")

disable CA validation

msg = pymsteams.connectorcard("", verify=False)

Set to either the path of a custom CA bundle or False to disable.
