Azure Bot Service

Azure Bot Service enables rapid intelligent bot development powered by the Microsoft Bot Framework, run in a serverless environment on Azure. Build, connect, deploy and manage intelligent bots that interact naturally wherever your users are talking – from your app or website to text/sms to Skype, Slack, Teams, Facebook Messenger, Kik, Office 365 mail and other popular services. Allow your bots to scale based on-demand and you pay only for the resources you consume.

Remember that this site is only for feature suggestions and ideas!

If you have technical questions or need help with the Bot Framework, please try StackOverflow or submit an issue in the Bot Builder SDK repo on GitHub

  1. App insights created in the wrong location

    As attached, when creating a bot service in a location that does support App Insights, it still creates it in a different location.

        • Logging issues with bot service

          I have issues on the deployment,
          And i'm trying to read the logs.

          Every time i'm trying to enable any kind of log under "diagnostics logs" i get "Failed to update web app logs settings for ***. There was an error processing your request. Please try again in a few moments"

          I waited a day and it does not work.

          • "An internal error occurred at the server."

            When I try to create a bot via Azure Bot Service I get "An internal error occurred at the server." If I retry I get "This MSA App ID is already in use.". Is this expected or am I doing something wrong?

            • Add Examples tab to https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/bot-service/

              One of the very first things I'd love to see here is the example usages in a new tab because simple examples is one of the most simple ways to explain how a framework works and what it offers to me.
