Ruby wrapper for the Stride API

gem install stride -v 0.1.1



A ruby wrapper for Stride's API.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'stride'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install stride


Add to an initializer:

Stride.configure do |config|
  config.client_id = "YOUR CLIENT ID"
  config.client_secret = "YOUR CLIENT SECRET"


Acquiring an access token

This should be done for you in most cases, but if you need to acquire an access token from the Atlassian Identity API, you may do so:


This returns a Token instance, which will have an access_token attribute.

Creating a client

Send in the cloud_id and conversation_id:

cloud_id = '911f7ab7-0581-4082-bed3-bad889ec4c91'
conversation_id = '76987a29-b7d9-43c5-b071-7aab71d88a6b'

client =, conversation_id)

This will rely on OAuth to get a token. If you've generated a room token as described here, then you can pass that in as a third parameter when initializing the client:, conversation_id, access_token)

When you use this approach, the client_id and client_secret configuration are unnecessary.

Sending a message

If there's a specific cloud and conversation you want to send to, you can send an arbitrary message using Stride::Client#send_message. Refer to the Stride API documentation for details on the message format.

message_body = {
  version: 1,
  type: 'doc',
  content: [
      type: 'paragraph',
      content: [
          type: 'text',
          text: 'I am the egg man, they are the egg men'

# => {"id"=>"5d6e39d3-ab1d-10e7-be03-02420aff0003"}

To send a plain text message as above, there's a convience method, Stride::Client#send_text_message:

client.send_message('I am the egg man, they are the egg men')
# => {"id"=>"5d6e39d3-ab1d-10e7-be03-02420aff0003"}

To send a message from Markdown:

client.send_markdown_message('Oh hi [click here](')

We use Atlassian's service for rendering Markdown to Atlassian Document Format (ADF).

To send a user a message:

client.send_user_message(user_id, 'Do you have any eggs?')

client.send_user_markdown_message(user_id, 'Do you have *any* eggs?')

User Details

To get details about a user when you have the id:


This returns a User instance with the following attributes: :id, :user_name, :active, :display_name, :emails, :meta, :photos

To get details about a conversation when you have the id:


This returns a Conversation instance with the following attributes: :cloud_id, :id, :name, :topic, :type, :created, :modified, :avatar_url, :privacy, :is_archived

To get the members of the conversation:


This will return an array of User instances for everyone in the conversation.

Bot Details

To get information about your bot user, just call

This will return a Me instance with the following attributes: :account_id, :name, :email, :picture
