Mattermost, Inc.

Location data and other meta data

For every post, is it possible to store metadata like location of the user? does mattermost support it?

Account Settings > Security > View Access History can show the IP addresses from which your account has accessed Mattermost. This is particularly useful to check if an account has been compromised.

Additional feature ideas welcome to discuss adding more info.

Thanks a lot. Can we integrate geocoder or reverse lookup for ip?

Hi @ailan,

We could make an accepting pull request ticket to add that for IP address.

However please note that the IP address given in the access history is for your session. If you need the information for each post, you would need to look at the nginx web logs and find it from there.

I’m searching for a feature to enable mattermost to send the user position (x,y coordinates) to an external app, like arcgis.

Any idea ?
