A connector for Rocket.Chat.
- An account from Rocket.Chat chat service or from your own server
- The Personal Access Token details(user-id and token) generated from within your account settings
connectors: - name: rocketchat # required user-id: "1ioKHDIOD" token: "zyxw-abdcefghi-12345" # optional bot-name: "mybot" # default "opsdroid" default-room: "random" # default "general" group: "MyAwesomeGroup" # default to None channel-url: "http://127.0.0.1" # defaults to https://open.rocket.chat update-interval: 5 # defaults to 1
- Opsdroid will only listen to one channel/group at a time
- A group is a private channel - this takes priority over a channel when trying to connect to the service.
- The name of the channel room is meant to be added without the #.
- Opsdroid will keep pinging the chat service to see if new messages were received; you can increase/decrease
the time between pings by adding the param
update-interval. Note: Opsdroid will only read the last received message.

In this example, I was using my own account to interact with opsdroid through Rocket.Chat, so you can see that even though opsdroid replied to "hi", the actual username shown was mine - this happens because I used my personal access token to test the connection.
This will also give you the possibility to just use a single account and interact with opsdroid through the chat service
since the name will always be changed to whatever
bot-name is set in
