Intelligent PVA Condition from Bot Framework Output

I have created "Hero Card" in bot framework instead of just multi choice menu that appears in horizontally (lets say, I have 4 options to choose from by the user).  Stored output from "Hero Card" (within Bot Framework) and captured in PVA.  

 

Within PVA, I would like to branch and show topic based on user input choice.  I do not know if there is a feature available to do that. If you have any clue how to tackle this problem please let me know. 

 

Also, Initially I designed "Adaptive Card" instead of "Hero Card" but just couldn't figure out how to show Adaptive card and collect user input from Adaptive card in Bot Framework and send it to PVA. 

 

Any help here is appreciated.

Hey there @Vamsi,

 

That is definitely possible to do! I'm not familiar with Hero Cards, but Adaptive Cards can definitely do what you'd like as well. 

 

This topic will walk you through how to set up parameters so that you can retrieve outputs from your Bot Framework bot, and then from there, you will be given a variable output from the topic in PVA. You can then branch from there by creating a condition that checks that variable and sees what value is in it.

 

Hope this helps!

Hey @SupportBryn ,

 

Appreciate your response.  I looked into the link you have provided but still couldn't figure out my use case. 

 

See the example adaptive card below.  Once user selects the item, I would like to show results based on the user selection.

Here is the json code I used in Bot Response. 

 

# adaptivecardjson_services()

- ```

{

    "type": "AdaptiveCard",

    "$schema": "http://adaptivecards.io/schemas/adaptive-card.json",

    "version": "1.4",

    "body": [

        {

            "type": "TextBlock",

            "text": “Services.",

            "wrap": true

        },

        {

            "type": "ActionSet",

            "actions": [

                {

                    "type": "Action.Submit",

                    "title": "Test1”,

                    "associatedInputs": "none"

                }

            ]

        },

        {

            "type": "ActionSet",

            "actions": [

                {

                    "type": "Action.Submit",

                    "title": "Test2”,

                    "associatedInputs": "none"

                }

            ]

        },

        {

            "type": "ActionSet",

            "actions": [

                {

                    "type": "Action.Submit",

                    "title": "Test3”,

                    "associatedInputs": "none"

                }

            ]

        },

        {

            "type": "ActionSet",

            "actions": [

                {

                    "type": "Action.Submit",

                    "title": "Test4”,

                    "associatedInputs": "none"

                }

            ]

        }

    ]

}

```

 

# Adaptivecard_services()

[Activity

    Attachments = ${json(adaptivecardjson_services())}

]

 

On the "Create" tab in "BeginDialog".  I tried to send the adaptive card as a response.  See below. 

 

Vamsi_1-1653501266849.png

 

Also, in "dialog Interface" I tried to capture input from Adaptive Card and send output.  Not sure if this is the right way of doing it.

In PVA, it is showing raw json code but not Adaptive Card. 

 

Appreciate any help here.

Hey @Vamsi

 

There's a few things that seem like they may need to be adjusted, so let's take this one step at a time. I notice that your adaptive card is using Version 1.4 of the Schema. From what I've been able to find, I believe that Bot Framework Composer, and therefore PVA, only support schemas up to version 1.3. You can see a message regarding this here,  in the Adaptive Card Designer. Can you try redesigning the card with that in mind, and see if it still outputs the raw text instead of the proper Adaptive Card object?

Hi @SupportBryn,

 

I still see raw text instead of adaptive card object.  I used 1.3 version to design card, see code below. 

 

{
"type": "AdaptiveCard",
"body": [
{
"type": "TextBlock",
"text": "Services",
"wrap": true
},
{
"type": "ActionSet",
"actions": [
{
"type": "Action.Submit",
"title": "Test1"
},
{
"type": "Action.Submit",
"title": "Test2"
},
{
"type": "Action.Submit",
"title": "Test3"
},
{
"type": "Action.Submit",
"title": "Test4"
}
]
}
],
"version": "1.3"
}

Hey there @Vamsi!


Sorry about that. Unfortunately, I am not exactly sure what is going on with your Adaptive Card not displaying properly. You may want to make a support ticket regarding this, as it seems it will require some more involved troubleshooting. Some of the other Power Users on the forum may also have seen this problem before, and hopefully us bumping the thread may draw their attention. I will continue to look into it and see if I can find any solutions!

The best way to make sure you know what's going on in the News & Announcements, to blogs you follow, or forums and galleries you're interested in is to subscribe! These subscriptions ensure you receive automated messages about the most recent posts and replies. Even better, there are multiple ways you can subscribe to content and boards in the community! (Please note: if you have created an AAD (Azure Active Directory) account you won't be able to receive e-mail notifications.)   Subscribing to a Category  When you're looking at the entire category, select from the Options drop down and choose Subscribe.     You can then choose to Subscribe to all of the boards or select only the boards you want to receive notifications. When you're satisfied with your choices, click Save.     Subscribing to a Topic You can also subscribe to a single topic by clicking Subscribe from the Options drop down menu, while you are viewing the topic or in the General board overview, respectively.     Subscribing to a Label Find the labels at the bottom left of a post.From a particular post with a label, click on the label to filter by that label. This opens a window containing a list of posts with the label you have selected. Click Subscribe.     Note: You can only subscribe to a label at the board level. If you subscribe to a label named 'Copilot' at board #1, it will not automatically subscribe you to an identically named label at board #2. You will have to subscribe twice, once at each board.   Bookmarks Just like you can subscribe to topics and categories, you can also bookmark topics and boards from the same menus! Simply go to the Topic Options drop down menu to bookmark a topic or the Options drop down to bookmark a board. The difference between subscribing and bookmarking is that subscriptions provide you with notifications, whereas bookmarks provide you a static way of easily accessing your favorite boards from the My subscriptions area.   Managing & Viewing Your Subscriptions & Bookmarks To manage your subscriptions, click on your avatar and select My subscriptions from the drop-down menu.     From the Subscriptions & Notifications tab, you can manage your subscriptions, including your e-mail subscription options, your bookmarks, your notification settings, and your email notification format.     You can see a list of all your subscriptions and bookmarks and choose which ones to delete, either individually or in bulk, by checking multiple boxes.     A Note on Following Friends on Mobile Adding someone as a friend or selecting Follow in the mobile view does not allow you to subscribe to their activity feed. You will merely be able to see your friends’ biography, other personal information, or online status, and send messages more quickly by choosing who to send the message to from a list, as opposed to having to search by username.
