Account Setup#

To use this Zulip, you must have a Zulip Chat bot defined; See here for more details. At the time of writing this plugin the instructions were:

  1. From your desktop, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner.
  2. Select Settings.
  3. On the left, click Your bots.
  4. Click Add a new bot.
  5. Fill out the fields, and click Create bot.

If you know your organization {ID} (as it's part of your url), then you can also access your bot information by visiting:

Upon creating a bot successfully, you'll now be able to access it's API Token.


Valid receipes are as follows:

  • zulip://{botname}@{organization}/{token}/
  • zulip://{botname}@{organization}/{token}/{stream}
  • zulip://{botname}@{organization}/{token}/{stream1}/{stream2}/{streamN}
  • zulip://{botname}@{organization}/{token}/{email}
  • zulip://{botname}@{organization}/{token}/{email1}/{email2}/{emailN}

Note: If neither a {stream} or {email} is specified then by default the stream general is notified.

You can also mix and match the entries above too:

  • zulip://{botname}@{organization}/{token}/{stream1}/{email1}/
