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. Allow adding images to the knowledge base in qnamaker for QnA Bots

    I was creating a QnA Bot using some existing FAQs documents. Answers to some questions include images. However, when I imported the Word document that contained the FAQs (with images) to create a knowledge base, only content was imported. There was no option either to add images once the knowledge base was created. Sometimes, visuals make an answer easy to understand.

  2. Blob Storage "Secure transfer required" settings by default is "Disabled".

    When we create Bot Service (Web App bot), Blob Storage "Secure transfer required" settings by Default is "Disabled".
    The default value should be "Enabled".

    I think Secure by default is better.

  4. Integrate QnA chatbot with Form chat bot service

    I want to make mixture of FAQ and Form chatbot. I created separately FAQ (with qnamaker) bot and Form bot but it is not possible to integrate it in one chatbot. In my chatbot I would like to have some sort of FAQ and form questions. Please, review this option because I think it will be very useful for many of us who are using Azure Bot Service. Also, integrate option to easily set greeting message to our chatbot (you can make an input field where we can either put message or picture with message). I wish to have this…

  5. Improve Or Audit Your Azure Text Analytics Entity Data Or Risk Mainstream Media Humiliation

    I was testing your Azure Text Analytics Entity Preview today and entered a few phrases that came to mind. I'll spare you the embarrassment of posting this elsewhere, but I think it's safe to say that Donald Trump's official and primary title is NOT "President of Puerto Rico"!

    The Wikipedia souce3 cited doesn't say that either. Not sure how you arrived at that conclusion.

    Feel free to delete this suggestion once corrected.

    @Nils, the Bot Framework is Open Source, and you can deploy it on any backend infrastructure, including Linux based VMs. Azure offers the Azure Bot Service to host your bot applications. Behind the scenes, your bot applications run on Azure App Service Web Apps. While the Azure App Services supports Linux deployment, we have not made it easy to deploy your bot to a Linux based App Service. With that said, you can deploy your bot to App Service Linux base, and continue to manage it via Azure Bot Service.

  7. human hand off part of bot framework

    Human Hand Off should be included or offered by Azure BOT v4 or Virtual Assistant framework

  10. UI Enhancemets in WebChat - More Interactive Features

    I'm working on a bot which is currently deployed through Webchat Channel. While making some enhancements to the UI in the adaptive cards, the Webchat channel currently doesn’t support/render many formats of data (like clickable-like&dislike icons for feedback, emoticons, etc.),some of which, are is possible in other channels like skype and slack. So, it would be great if you can let us know when will such UI enhancements be supported in webchat channel of the bot framework, like it does in Skype and other messenger bots, according to the roadmap of Microsoft Bot Framework

  20. The translation service doesn't always works with dates.

    The translation service doesn't always works with dates (translator-text-api).

    Ex : "Torsdag den 20. juni inviterer " is translated to "Thursday, 20 September. June invites"

    Which is wrong. Please can you consider this and work for a better solution
