How can we add chatbot link to our Canvas App

Hi,

    I created one chatbot in Power Virtual Agent, how can I use that in canvas app. What I was trying to do, pasting that chatbot link into HTML text control but it's showing an error. So the one I'm doing is correct or should I try something else.


Thanks,

Suraj

Hi @srj_bole 

 

Do you want to embed Azure Boot Service (chatbot) within an app?

The Azure Boot Service connector is not supported within PowerApps currently, if you want to use Azure Boot Service (chatbot) within PowerApps directly, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/PowerApps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

Currently, as an alternative solution, you could consider take a try to custom a connector based on Azure Boot Service API within your PowerApps, then you could use Azure Boot service through the custom connector.

More details about customizing connector in PowerApps, please check the following article:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/register-custom-api

More details about Azure Boot Service API, please check the following article:

In addition, please check and see if the following video would help in your scenario:

@srj_bole - the way to add a 'Power Virtual Agent' to canvas app is to add a PCF iFrame control to your screen, and to embed your bot within the iFrame.

This post by Yash Agarwal provides more details.

Hi Chitrakant

So I thought I would try to make a ChatBot for Canvas to add to our staff EdTech Help canvas course.

 

I had come across a number of posts and ideas mentioning this a way back - this one in particular from   https://community.canvaslms.com/ideas/5717" modifiedtitle="true" title="AI chatbot which answers bas...

 

Spent a couple of hours trying to get it set up. Googled ChatBot. Got some advice about Azure and QnA Maker. Set up a free portal. Followed a few online help guides. Actually, it was not a difficult as I first thought..

 

Bit of trial and error, made a few mistakes along the way, struggled with some of the Tech but I've actually made one.

The Chat bot is embedded on a Canvas page. I used the Redirect tool used to create an entry on the Navigation menu to take you directly to the page.

 

Thanks & Regards
