Read time: 2 minutes
Last edited: May 01, 2024

Overview

This topic explains how flag links work in Microsoft Teams. A flag link being shared in any conversation can be unfurled to display a preview of the flag. Flag links being shared in public channels will also be automatically registered within LaunchDarkly. The LaunchDarkly app can also be used to manually link conversations in public channels to a flag.

To use this feature, you must have installed and configured the LaunchDarkly Microsoft Teams app. To learn more, read Setting up the Microsoft Teams app.

When a flag or segment link is pasted in a public channel, the LaunchDarkly app unfurls the link to display a preview of the resource:

When a flag link is unfurled in Microsoft Teams, LaunchDarkly saves the message on the flag's Links tab. This helps track conversations about flags and provide up-to-date information on the flag's usage. To learn more, read Flag links.

Feature flags can be manually linked to a chat message in a public channel.

To manually link a chat message to a flag:

  1. In Microsoft Teams, navigate to a public channel.
