MS Teams rejects Chrome browsers RRS feed

  • Question

  • We use New Relic to monitor system health for many SaaS applications, including SharePoint Online, Yammer, OneDrive, and now Teams. New Relic uses a headless Chrome browser on Ubuntu to perform health checks, and this works on all the MS products except Teams.

    Apparently Teams has a super-restrictive browser User-Agent or platform check, and even though the version of Chrome is 58+, Teams rejects it. Spoofing the user-agent to the most recent version of Chrome doesn't fix the problem.

    Does anyone have a work-around? Or does anyone know if the Teams developers will loosen this annoying restriction?  I would much rather see a degraded experience than no experience at all.
