How add attachment in power chatbot

I am creating a chatbot from power apps added and publish via teams, but I cannot add an attachment via chatbot & store those attachments in dB.

Hi @PravinDeore ,


Only using PVA not yet, I created an idea here: Attach file to Power Virtual Agents - Power Platform Community (

But while Microsoft provide better in-app support for this, you can do the following,


  1. Deploy a custom web-canvas (see documentation) that supports attaching images / files
  2. Upload the image / file to your own Azure Blob storage
  3. Send the URL as a message activity (response to a question node) so that it gets assigned to a variable
  4. Use that URL in Flow / Skills to achieve your desired outcome

Microsoft has provided a github sample that attempts to mimic this capability.

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