Use bot to get Telegram chat ID
Updates are posted in the public ticket. The ticket will be closed when the bot is created.
The TeleIRC SIG is responsible for "bridges" between IRC channels and Telegram groups. Fedora community members may request new bridges to connect an IRC channel to a Telegram group. If you are part of a larger sub-community, discuss bridging with your team _before_ making a request.

Send these to the following address:
Send Telegram secrets via email

Open public ticket with request
_Note_: Whoever creates the Telegram bot is the only person able to make configuration changes to the bot. It is not yet possible to "share" Telegram bots with other users.
Next, open a https://pagure.io/sig-teleirc/infrastructure/new_issue[new issue] on the TeleIRC SIG _infrastructure_ repository. In your ticket, include the following information:
IRC nicks to ignore on Telegram (e.g. fedmsg bots, if your channel has noisy fedmsg bots)
IRC channel to bridge to Telegram
Instructions on how to retrieve a Telegram chat ID are found on https://stackoverflow.com/a/32572159[StackOverflow].
If you have questions or need additional assistance, ask in the xref:commops::index.adoc[Fedora CommOps] IRC channel / group.
Follow all instructions for the bot to work as expected (note the bot privacy setting). The BotFather gives you a Telegram API token after creating the bot. Later, you will provide this token to the TeleIRC SIG.
First, create a Telegram bot via the Telegram API account (BotFather). The upstream project https://docs.teleirc.com/en/v1.3.4/quick-install/#create-a-telegram-bot[provides documentation] on how to do this.
Finally, send the Telegram secrets in an email to the TeleIRC SIG. Include the following in your email:
