Monitor and manage your Yammer account by using Azure Logic Apps

With Azure Logic Apps and the Yammer connector, you can create automated tasks and workflows that monitor and manage messages, feeds, and more in your Yammer account, along with other actions, for example:

  • Monitor when new messages appear in followed feeds and groups.
  • Get messages, groups, networks, users' details, and more.
  • Post and like messages.

You can use triggers that get responses from your Yammer account and make the output available to other actions. You can use actions that perform tasks with your Yammer account. You can also have other actions use the output from Yammer actions. For example, when new messages appear in feeds or groups, you can share those messages with the Slack connector.

Prerequisites

  • An Azure subscription. If you don't have an Azure subscription, sign up for a free Azure account.

  • Your Yammer account and user credentials

    Your credentials authorize your logic app to create a connection and access your Yammer account.

  • Basic knowledge about how to create logic apps

  • The logic app where you want to access your Yammer account. To start with a Yammer trigger, create a blank logic app. To use a Yammer action, start your logic app with another trigger, for example, the Recurrence trigger.

Connect to Yammer

Before your logic app can access any service, you must create a connection between your logic app and that service. If you didn't previously create this connection, you're prompted for connection information when you add a trigger or action for that service to your logic app. The Logic Apps Designer provides an easy way for you to create this connection directly from your logic app.

  1. Sign in to the Azure portal, and open your logic app in Logic App Designer, if not open already.

  2. Choose a path:

    • For blank logic apps, in the search box, enter "yammer" as your filter. Under the triggers list, select the trigger you want.

      -or-

    • For existing logic apps:

      • Under the last step where you want to add an action, choose New step.

        -or-

      • Between the steps where you want to add an action, move your pointer over the arrow between steps. Choose the plus sign (+) that appears, and then select Add an action.

        In the search box, enter "yammer" as your filter. Under the actions list, select the action you want.

  3. If you're prompted to sign in to Yammer, sign in now sign in now so you can allow access.

  4. Provide the necessary details for your selected trigger or action and continue building your logic app's workflow.
