Hi,
I need to configure the telegram notification plugin in serveral servers so i like to do it massivly trrough CLI, but in the API documentation there is no documentation abou it, i managed to find some of the parameters but i guess i'm missing one because a get the error message:

Code: Select all

No chats found, Please start a chat with your bot 

As far as i know we have to send a message to the bot in order to complete, but i don't know the parameter, can you tell me all the parameters to use in CLI to configure it?

Hello ludolugo,

As per the error you provided, it appears that JetBackup is not receiving any response from your Telegram Bot. Please try directly sending a message through your Telegram Bot and try configuring your Telegram Notification in JetBackup one more time. Once you verify that you are able to successfully authenticate with Telegram, you should be able to authenticate via the CLI using the following jetbackup5api command:

Code: Select all

jetbackup5api -F manageNotificationIntegration -D 'action=create&frequency[1]=1&frequency[2]=1&frequency[4]=1&name={NOTIFICATION_NAME}&type=Telegram&options[token]={TELEGRAM_BOT_TOKEN}'
For more information regarding the API call above, please visit manageNotificationIntegration API

Thank you.

Hello ludolugo,

Thank you for following up. Just to clarify, you would need to send an initial message to your Telegram bot directly from the Telegram App. Once sent, please try configuring your Telegram Notification in JetBackup to verify that JetBackup is able to connect to your Telegram Bot.

Thank you.

Hello, same trouble here is, but one of the main issues is this plugin can't configure the chat id via web interface. So, if I add it the parameter via API, it doesn't change:

My API Call is:

jetbackup5api -F manageNotificationIntegration -D "action=create&name=Alertas JB hostX&type=Telegram&frequency[4]=1&options[token]=123321:AABCDEEFGEGVDRGFVTGD&options[chat_id]=45678912"

Even if I deleted the previous notificationIntegration item, chat_id never changes.

PD: Bot is working correctly and I created and tested another bot, but the issue remains.

Hello,

Can you please clarify your version of JetBackup 5 and the JetBackup Slack Plugin? Please note that we updated the Slack Plugin that allows you to specify the Channel ID (v1.0.19). This is compatible with JetBackup 5.2.9 and above. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our 24/7/365 support team at [email protected]!

Hello, we are using JetBackup 5.2.7 and only Telegram Plugin, not the Slack Plugin. Thanks
