SharePoint News connector problem
The SharePoint News Connector (sometimes) does not publish a post when a new SharePoint news is published. We have tried waiting for 24 hours without any post showing up. When we republish the news post, a post is created in the channel. Is there anything we can do to fix this behaviour?

Can we get a fix for this please? It's not working, it's not even re-configurable. This is a pretty bad experience. Being able to use the SharePoint news editor to post rich news, and then NOT have it show up in Teams is a major dealbreaker for us.
I have the same problem, the connector works inconsistently. Sometimes the news post is instantly created in Teams, but sometimes you need to go and edit the post in order to make it appear in Teams.

I have the same problem and I will also add that when I go to Configure--> Manage the General channel connector for SharePointNews, nothing shows up under the Save | Remove | Cancel buttons, not even the mandatory Fields that it states should be marked.
I have the same problem in my tenant :
- sometimes no notification in Teams (even if waiting several minutes/hours)
- sometimes it works
- sometimes a notification if choosing edit the page and update news
No error message !

Same problem, Sharepoint News app may skip news without publishing to Teams channel.
Just started see this in our tenant over the last two weeks. 11 teams with connector on General channel and none of them are firing. In some instances the configured connector doesn't show in the list but does show in the "Apps" tab of channel management.
Confirmed as below - choosing edit on the home page of the team site then posts the news item
Same here, the connector does not seem to work.

I seeing the same problem in my tenant. Posts aren't being created for initial news story creation on the Teams channels.

Same here. It publishes instantly with notification if I click to "Edit" in the article (just edit, not re-publish).
Same issue. New news articles from the referenced sharepoint site dont appear.
This has not been working for a while for me. Seems to be across the whole tenant. Any update?

Same here, except republishing does not cause a notification to appear in the channel.
Same here. No error message. The news just don't get published in Teams.

We are trying to resolve this issue, but we need some more information. Is there an error message that you are seeing while performing the POST? Can we get a channel link where this is failing?
Same here, we waited days and it never showed up - but sometimes it does.
Same here. Also, when editing the SP webpart, and selecting news sources from other sites, the Teams connector still only displays news from the original SP site, and not from the linked sites.
This is seriously poor cross-integration!
same problem here, connector stopped working altogether in multiple Teams
