Configuring Bamboo to use Google Talk for Instant Messaging
Before you begin:
- Google Talk does not allow IM messages to be received unless the receiver has approved the sender. Please ensure that the Gmail user specified below is approved by each Google Talk recipient. That is, ensure that the 'Host' and 'Username' have previously sent messages to each other via Google Talk.
- The Google Talk service is hosted at talk.google.com. The default port is 5222. (Note: be aware that your firewall might be blocking traffic to this port.)
- TLS is required.
- The only supported authentication mechanism is SASL PLAIN. For additional information, please see: http://code.google.com/apis/talk/open_communications.html
To configure Bamboo to use Google Talk for Instant Messaging:
- Click theicon in the Bamboo header and choose Overview.
Click IM Server in the left navigation panel (under 'Communication').
Click Edit. Modify the settings as required.
Type 'talk.google.com'. (If your IM Server uses an '@googlemail.com' account, type 'googlemail.com'.)
Leave blank. Bamboo will perform a DNS lookup to figure out which port to use.
Type the login name of the Google account from which IM notifications will be sent. Starting with Bamboo 3.4, you need to include the domain name, e.g. email@example.com NOT atlassianbamboo.
Select this if you have specified a username different from the currently logged-in user.
