Relaying with webhooks

New in version 0.2.0

The bridge supports using Discord's webhook feature to relay messages from Matrix users who haven't logged into the bridge.

Webhook relays can be used regardless of how you logged into Discord, a bot is not required. However, in the future the bridge may include additional relay integration using a bot.

If you want to use the bridge for relaying only, it is recommended to have a dedicated Matrix account to log in as the bot user. If you log in on your main Matrix account, your messages will be sent through the bot rather than through the webhook with custom profiles.


To enable relaying in a room, use !discord set-relay. The command requires a parameter, which can either be --create [name] or --url <url>.

The room must be bridged before running set-relay. You can either have the bridge create rooms by bridging the entire guild with the guilds command, or you can bridge individual channels using the bridge command. See the bridging rooms page for more info.

  • !discord set-relay --create will create a new webhook. You must be logged into the bridge as a user or bot that has privileges to create webhooks in on the Discord side.
    • You can optionally pass a name for the webhook after the command, e.g. !discord set-relay --create matrix bridge. The default name is "mautrix". Note that the name may not contain "discord".
  • !discord set-relay --url will use the given webhook URL for relaying.
    • You can optionally specify a room ID before --url to run the command in a private room (and avoid leaking the webhook secret to everyone else in the room being bridged), e.g. !discord set-relay ! --url
