Telegram chatbot webhooks implementation as described in the Telegram documentation.
setWebhook method your bot’s webhook URL should be set to
This is one of two bot implementations supported by Telegram. Described by Telegram as the preferred implementation but requires your Home Assistant instance to be exposed to the internet.
To integrate this into Home Assistant, add the following section to your
# Example configuration.yaml entry telegram_bot: - platform: webhooks api_key: YOUR_API_KEY parse_mode: html allowed_chat_ids: - 12345 - 67890
A list of ids representing the users and group chats that are authorized to interact with the webhook.
The API token of your bot.
Default parser for messages if not explicit in message data, either
Proxy URL if working behind one (
Proxy configuration parameters, as dict, if working behind a proxy (
Allow to overwrite the external URL from the Home Assistant configuration for different setups (
Telegram server access ACL as list.
To get your
api_key follow the instructions here. As well as authorizing the chat, if you have added your bot to a group you will also need to authorize any user that will be interacting with the webhook. When an unauthorized user tries to interact with the webhook Home Assistant will raise an error (“Incoming message is not allowed”), you can easily obtain the users id by looking in the “from” section of this error message.
The configuration sample below shows how an entry can look like:
# Example configuration.yaml entry telegram_bot: - platform: webhooks api_key: YOUR_API_KEY trusted_networks: - 184.108.40.206/20 - 220.127.116.11/22 allowed_chat_ids: - 12345 - 67890
