Embedded slash command in hyperlink


Is there a way to send (using my bot) an hyperlink that - when clicked - will behave like a slash command (instead of “normal” hyperlink that open a browser location to the url)

Example (using hyperlink format)

[Check out Mattermost!] + (https://myWebUrl/display/mattrmost/)
This would display a link, but behave exactly like a “dynamic” slash command redirecting to the given url.

This would enable my bots to send “button-like” urls that would perform additional actions and display results in the channel

I tried to do this in version 3.4, by posting a “text” with the slash command, but it didn’t work. It didn’t interpret the text as a slash command but instead like a regular text. I’m not sure if changes have been done since.

Hi @pascal.ducaule and @ngcnelson

Thanks for your question! Mattermost does not yet have the ability to embed slash commands within hyperlinks.
