Desktop - Managed Resources

The Mattermost Desktop App supports managed resources. A managed resource can be any service available on the same hostname using the same protocol as the Mattermost server.

Note

Using this feature requires a custom build of the Mattermost Desktop App.

Add the path of a managed resource to your configuration file. When selected, it opens as a pop-up window in the Mattermost Desktop App.

In the below example we add the managed resource /video.

Here are two example server URLs each with valid and invalid managed resource URLs:

  • Mattermost server: https://mattermost.my.org
    • A valid video service: https://mattermost.my.org/video
    • A valid conference service: https://mattermost.my.org/conference
    • An invalid video service using a different protocol: http://mattermost.my.org/video
    • An invalid conference service having a different origin: https://conference.my.org
  • Mattermost server: https://my.org/mattermost
    • A valid video service: https://my.org/video
    • A valid conference service: https://my.org/conference
    • An invalid video service using a different protocol: http://my.org/video
    • An invalid conference service having a different origin: https://conference.my.org
