Add a bot

By default, anyone can add a bot to a Zulip organization. A bot that sends content to or from another product is often called an integration.

Organization administrators can also restrict bot creation. Any bot that is added is visible and available for anyone to use.

Our guide to bots has more information about the various fields. Nearly all third-party integrations should use Incoming webhook as the bot type.

Depending on the type of bot you're creating, you may need to download its .zuliprc configuration file. For that, click the download () icon under the bot's name.
