Extend Mattermost with our new Integrations Directory
Now you can find the integrations that your team needs to be more productive in just a few clicks.
We just launched a brand-new Integrations Directory that makes it easy to discover the powerful integrations and plugins built by our community.
Search by app name, category and recently added integrations to find the tools your team needs to thrive. You can also browse some of the more popular integrations our users have installed, like Matterbridge, Matterhorn and our GitLab integration.
We plan to add additional features to our Integrations Directory in the coming months. For more, stop by our integrations channel to join in on the discussion.
While you’re at it, browse the directory, too.
Watch our new demo to learn Mattermost use cases
Looking to take your Mattermost experience to the next level?
Check out our new demo to try out features and see built-in scripts that walk you through common use cases, like incident response, development and monitoring.
Each use case features integrations that give you an idea of what you can do to extend Mattermost using your tools.
Automated Hipchat data migration
Slack bought Hipchat last summer. Shortly thereafter, news broke that the self-hosted messaging solution would be shut down. This caused concern for many privacy-conscious organizations that couldn’t use services like Slack due to security and compliance requirements.
Good news: A new tool built by Herzum, one of our partners, solves this challenge by enabling companies to automatically migrate Hipchat data directly to Mattermost.
This ensures that precious messaging data remains under your control. It also means that you can continue collaborating securely without having to rely on a third-party vendor to manage your sensitive data.
Building a local commerce platform on Mattermost
Rapitt helps local merchants digitally connect with more customers.
To facilitate these transactions, Rapitt decided to build their platform on top of Mattermost. As a result, they are able to connect business owners and merchants with customers through their app and, thanks to an integration with StackStorm, deliver event management automation.
“There isn’t anything even close to Mattermost on the market,” says Mohsen Lofti, co-founder and community advocate at Rapitt.
