nethserver-mattermost

Stack:

  • Mattermost
  • PostgreSQL 9.4 listening on non-standard port 55432
  • Apache as proxy server

Apache configuration derived from: https://github.com/mattermost/docs/issues/1114

First configuration

Mattermost requires a dedicated virtualhost and it’s accessibile only from HTTPS.

To start Mattermost, execute:

config setprop mattermost VirtualHost mattermost.yourdomain.com status enabled
signal-event nethserver-mattermost-update

Then, access https://mattermost.yourdomain.com and perform the first configuration.

Database

Properties:

  • TCPPort: Mattermost listen port, change only for development purpose
  • VirtualHost: dedicated FQDN for virtual host
  • status: can be enabled or disabled, default to disabled
  • access: firewall access, leave blank or at least set to none

Example:

mattermost=service
   TCPPort=5432
   VirtualHost=mattermost.local.neth.eu
   access=
   status=enabled

Account synchronization

The mattermost-bulk-user-create command will:

  • create a default team named as the Company from OrganizationContact
  • read all users from local or remote Account Providers and create them inside Mattermost

Please note that:

  • users disabled in the Server Manager or already existing in Mattermost will be skipped
  • a random password will be generated for each user

Forcing a common default password

It’s possible to set a default password for each new Mattermost user, just append the default password to command invocation.

Example:

mattermost-bulk-user-create Password,1234
