Microsoft Teams



Microsoft Teams is a tool to communicate with your team. By integrating with Cortex's app for Teams, Cortex will directly message entity owners regarding any Scorecard improvements or if there are any action items for upcoming Initiatives.


Navigate to the Settings page in Cortex and follow the prompt in the Microsoft Teams tab to connect via OAuth.

Afterwards, you’ll need to install Cortex's app for Teams through Microsoft AppSource. Depending on your organization's settings and permissions, a Microsoft Teams admin may be able to install the app for all users in your organization (see here for more information).


If using Cortex Server, you'll need to follow a manual configuration process to use Cortex's app for Teams. Reach out to the support team to receive instructions.

You can define the following block in your Cortex Catalog Descriptor to add your Microsoft Teams channels. Defining a Teams channel will provide direct access to the channel via the entity page in Cortex.

teamName: engineering # exact match name of the team (optional)
