Rocket.Chat App

Self-hosted integration built on top of Rocket.Chat’s webhooks to deliver data into Rocket.Chat from on-premises tools like Jira, GitLab, and other popular products.
A Rocket.Chat App is an integration or a plugin created in an isolated environment, running locally within the Rocket.Chat environment. It enables the users to get more done with their server, with the flexibility of integrating their workflows and favorite apps, without the risk of losing data to an external server or having direct access to theirs, being run independently within their local environments.
You can also create your own App and publish it on our official Marketplace to share with the world. Users can download your application from the marketplace and use it.
