As a logged in user who is a member of the team and a member of the channel I do not get posted websocket events.
Steps to reproduce
I am using Mattermost 3.10 API. I create a user through the API, assign them to a team and then setup a websocket for them. For channels I am currently a part of or those I join during the session I do not get websocket posted (or channel joined) events. I do get the hello and status events.
On the same Mattermost installation using the standard web-ui I can login as this user and receive the correct websocket events.
I would expect to get the websocket events.
I don’t get the websocket events.
To be honest - I am quite confused about the flow when using Mattermost entirely via the API - possibly due to the now day and a bit I have spent slamming my head against the wall with this issue.
Our process is as follows: Try to login -> if failed create user and login -> try to join team -> if failed create team and join team -> try to join channel -> if failed create channel and join.
I have not been using the view or stats endpoints so far (which the UI does) however I have manually triggered these and not seen any change in the websocket events returned. Furthermore - it seems very strange that I get the correct events when using the standard Mattermost UI for the same user.
Finally, I have one user account on my backend WHICH DOES get the correct websocket events, however, I am unsure of what I did differently when creating this user. Worse - when I join a channel as this user (through the API or otherwise) the websocket events not only start working for them but for all other users as well.
I am at my wits end with this one. I feel like the only place that there can be an issue is the login process - maybe I am missing a step when joining the teams?
Sorry for the wall of text - I should probably go to bed but I am stubborn and sick of this not working when it’s so close to working.
