  • Supports multiple channels.
  • Matterbridge can also work with private groups on your mattermost.
  • Allow for bridging the same bridges, which means you can eg bridge between multiple mattermosts.
  • The bridge is now a gateway which has support multiple in and out bridges. (and supports multiple gateways).

webhooks version

You'll have to configure the incoming and outgoing webhooks.

  • incoming webhooks Go to "account settings" - integrations - "incoming webhooks".
    Choose a channel at "Add a new incoming webhook", this will create a webhook URL right below.
    This URL should be set in the matterbridge.conf in the [mattermost] section (see above)

  • outgoing webhooks Go to "account settings" - integrations - "outgoing webhooks".
    Choose a channel (the same as the one from incoming webhooks) and fill in the address and port of the server matterbridge will run on.

e.g. http://192.168.1.1:9999 (192.168.1.1:9999 is the BindAddress specified in [mattermost] section of matterbridge.conf)

FAQ

Please look at matterbridge.toml.sample for more information first.

Mattermost doesn't show the IRC nicks

If you're running the webhooks version, this can be fixed by either:

  • enabling "override usernames". See mattermost documentation
  • setting PrefixMessagesWithNick to true in mattermost section of your matterbridge.toml.

If you're running the plus version you'll need to:

  • setting PrefixMessagesWithNick to true in mattermost section of your matterbridge.toml.

Also look at the RemoteNickFormat setting.
