Webhook event for message reactions

This is for developer-specific feature requests. For other requests please contact our customer support team.

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
There is no webhook events for Reactions. I’m currently working on my company’s bot that will add customizable list of actions you can perform on messages in multiple chats:

Here’s subset of actions to get a general idea across:

  • Create issue from message
  • Collect all relevant links from message and dump them as a reply

Our team wants to implement such actions without the need to type bot commands, but rather use Reactions to trigger specific actions. For example :link: emoji to dump relevant links, and so on.

Describe the solution you’d like
I’d like to receive reaction webhook events.

Describe alternatives you’ve considered
There are alternatives, but they all have disadvantages/possible pitfalls:

  • Use some existing chat api to poll all messages in chats and detect added reactions. Possible pitfall - rate limiting of said api endpoints.
  • Send bot message with each action as a button that users can click to invoke it. Better solution but this would clutter all chats, and generate +1 message on each user message.
