Although Slack has seemingly taken over the world of workplace chat, my organization is a G Suite shop and we use Hangouts Chat for a majority of our internal communication. It’s included as a “core” G Suite app, so why not use the product we already have, right?
I wanted a way to post notifications to Hangsouts Chat rooms when autopkg downloads new software, or makes changes to our Jamf Pro server via JSSImporter. No solution existed. Building on the excellent Slack-centric work of both Graham R Pugh and Rich Trouton, I’ve made two different autopkg postprocessors to send autopkg notifications to Google Hangouts Chat.
