PVA is not for everyone

Hi,

 

I'm working at a big enterprise, I've made a few flows and PowerApps for internal use. PVA seems to be a promising platform, but after a few hours of reading I met two roadblocks:

 - To get the user details I need to implement authentication, which assumes I can add an app to Azure AD. At a big enterprise it's a big NO. Within PowerApps it's very easy.

 - To add the bot to Teams, i need to have permission to sideload apps. Again, it's hardly possible at a big enterprise. 

 

Am I missing something? This is not for the same audiance as the Power Automation and PowerApps.

Thank you Yoghurt for using PVA and the detailed feedback.

 

Regarding the need to sideload a bot into Teams, this item is on our roadmap and we understand the pain of not having permission to sideload Teams apps in big organizations.  We are looking into it.

@Yoghurt - Thank you for your interest in Power Virtual Agents. We understand that configuring AAD authentication with your bot could be easier and are looking into making configuration easier as a future roadmap item.

Happy bot building!
