Microsoft Teams - Important: Your connector is running on old configuration. Navigate to connector configuration window to update to new configuration

Hi, 

Since Saturday, 23rd January 2021, I am seeing this message in the notification alerts I have set up a couple of months before in order to send monitoring alerts to a specific channel, using an incoming webhook:

Important: Your connector is running on old configuration. Navigate to connector configuration window to update to new configuration 

I have checked the connector configuration window but I do not know what to change or what changed. 

I do not want to update the URL because it will mean changing the configuration in Prometheus/Alerting, the monitoring tool. 

My questions are: 

1. Why am I seeing this message? was there an update?

2. How can I remove this message?

Thank you in advance.

Alex

Connectors support in Microsoft Teams is transitioning to a new webhook URL format to enhance security. In the future, connector webhook URLs will contain the name of the tenant in them.


Old URLs continue to work for now, but users will be prompted to re-create connectors.


When this will happen


We will begin transitioning to the new webhook URLs on Monday January 11, 2021; however, existing webhooks URLs will continue to work for three (3) months to allow for migration time.


What this means for your organization


We're transitioning to a new webhook URL format where is friendly short name for the tenant. Your organization can use to filter egress traffic”.  

Webhook


Users with a Teams connector app will see a prompt to migrate to the new webhook URL configuration on the Connectors configuration page.

Prompt


Users who have configured connectors will need to undertake one of the following actions, depending on the type of connector:


Recreate the connection by removing and then re-configuring the connector

For incoming webhooks, first tap the Update URL button. Then copy-paste the new URL to the third party source that is consuming the URL.

Update

After the new URL is generated, the “Update URL” button will disappear, and user will see a message stating that the URL is up-to-date.

Success

What you need to do to prepare


You might want to notify your users about this update and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
