Mattermost 4.1 further simplifies integrations with:
Streamlined apps, starting with JIRA – While integrations with apps built for Mattermost and apps built for Slack work out-of-the-box via APIs and webhooks, add-on connectors are required for other applications. To streamline setup for those apps, Mattermost is now offering custom connectors with popular apps in this category, starting with JIRA.
Personal access tokens – This release, setup of custom integrations is also streamlined by allowing System Admins to enable the generation of revocable personal access tokens by developers and IT staff seeking to connect to 3rd party apps.
We are also approaching nearly 100 open source integrations! Check our Mattermost Integrations Directory to discover new open source and commercial Mattermost apps and extensions.
Plus, Enterprise Edition E20 now offers new compliance features to disable file sharing only on mobile experiences, and omit contents from notification emails.
Enterprise Edition E20 now offers a highly available elasticsearch engine in Beta.
A high availability cluster enables a Mattermost system to maintain service during outages and hardware failures, and handles increased system load at scale. With a new Elasticsearch engine, you can run highly efficient database searches in a cluster environment.
Furthermore, you can use our search replica feature to isolate search queries onto one or more database servers. A search replica is similar to a read replica, but is used only for handling search queries.
Elasticsearch is open source, easy to use, and provides the most powerful text search capabilities built on top of Lucene, a fully featured information retrieval library.
It is a RESTful search and analytics engine that provides instantaneous answers to dynamic and full text search queries. In future Mattermost releases, it can also provide approximate answers from data, taking account of mis-spellings in searches.
