Interaction between Telegram bot and channel


as the exposure of items to the Openhab cloud and their usage with IFTTT is currently not possible I am searching for a nice workaround (installing the Openhab cloud on premise is no solution as dependencies and packages are quit old and insecure).
So i thought of using the telegram service in ifttt and the telegram binding in Openhab. I created the connection from openhab to telegram and when writing directly to the bot, the message occurs in the items.
Then I added the created bot as an administrator to the channel I communicate with IFTTT. Now posting a message on the channel, this is recognized by the bot and in the openhab log but all values are NULL.
Did I miss anything in my configuration or isn’t this implemented yet?

Thanks for your support.

Here is the log when receiving the message written to the bot:

2019-12-16 11:53:31.565 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__Text changed from NULL to 1

2019-12-16 11:53:31.600 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__DateTime changed from NULL to 2019-12-16T10:53:31.000+0000

2019-12-16 11:53:31.605 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__Name changed from NULL to XXX

2019-12-16 11:53:31.611 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__Username changed from NULL to YYY

2019-12-16 11:53:31.616 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1__ChatId changed from NULL to 1034468114

Here is the log when receiving the message written to the channel:

2019-12-16 11:56:21.852 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__Text changed from 1 to NULL

2019-12-16 11:56:21.871 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__DateTime changed from 2019-12-16T10:53:31.000+0000 to NULL

2019-12-16 11:56:21.882 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__Name changed from XXX to NULL

2019-12-16 11:56:21.887 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1_Last_Message__Username changed from YYY to NULL

2019-12-16 11:56:21.892 [vent.ItemStateChangedEvent] - TelegramBot1__ChatId changed from 1034468114 to NULL

Okay, after a lot of searching and trying out I finally found the solution why it isn’nt working in the docu of telegram. Bots are not allowed to talk to each other :frowning:
Now I have to find another way of communication between IFTTT and Openhab…
