Inbound Github webhooks in Free version: Possible?

Asking Github to webhook on a push to MM, following these instructions: Incoming Webhooks — Mattermost 5.33 documentation

  • Does not work. Results in HTTP 405 Method Not Allowed.
  • Possibly MM wants Github to be sending a secret key? There is no option to generate in the (free) System Console.
  • Free version on website claims to include “unlimited integrations”, but…
  • The advertised Github integrations in the above link leads to a Github link that is for Enterprise only.

Question: Can a vanilla-Git hook be made to work in free version?


Travail no more! The proper instructions are at mattermost-plugin-github/ at master · mattermost/mattermost-plugin-github · GitHub

(not sure if there are other and/or non-Enterprise workarounds…)


I am at the end of my travails!

“.… We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time…” (TS Eliot)

Ya…first i was being ignorant (of MM functionality in this area) so i tried to roll my own with hooks and such. second, i was being lazy (because the OAuth stuff is a lot more clickety-click and my tiny brain can only hold so many…)

This stuff works (as I am sure you will be shocked to hear, lol) because i was able to rather easily set up an integration between Zapier and MM using OAuth. I assume (<== yikes, there’s that word…) that it will work for Github, but for present purposes I am in good shape!
