    I want to send notification from status of  each stages in jenkins pipeline as a comment to Thread message. My questions are following.

    1. How to create thread message while posting status value to flowdock?

    2. How to capture that thread_id and post the status of each stages to that particular thread?

    There is a plugin currently that may do what you need, Help | Hudson / Jenkins 


    However, if it is possible to customize what is sent, then you can follow the information in the API Documentation to get things posted to a Flow.  Rest | Flowdock API 


    The basic steps are:

    1. Post the first message to the Inbox or Chat.
    2. Flowdock sends a JSON response back from the post.  Save the 'thread_id' that comes back for future use.
    3. Post subsequent messages and include 'thread_id' in the payload and it will be threaded with the first post.


    Hope that helps.
