Error adding a skill created in Bot Framework Composer

I've created a skill using Bot Framework Composer 1.3.1.

When I add the skill in PVA, the skill validates, but when I Save it, I get the following message:

Something went wrong while importing your skill. Please try again later.
Diagnostic Trace Id:


Any help would be great!

Hi @craiglarrabee ,


Are you trying to publish your Bot Framework Composer as a skill?

You need to follow this documentation here: Use Bot Framework Composer with chatbots - Power Virtual Agents | Microsoft Docs


Because when you are developing skills inside Bot Framework Composer, you need to publish inside the client and not inside the PVA

Did I answer your question? Mark my post as a solution!

Thanks for the response @renatoromao .


I have been able to extend my PVA bot great with Composer Dialogs, however, I want the Composer Dialog to return me where I left in PVA, much like a Power Automate Action. I'm hoping skills will accomplish this.


I have successfully published the skill to Azure, and am trying to use it in PVA.
