Power Virtual Agent - Attachments



Looking incase anyone has done attachment scenario with Power Virtual Agent.


checking attachment scenario with PVA . I already have the code to send the attachment to blob -> How do I return and catch the blob location at PVA Chatbot for further processing? I have read at article that upload event is triggered at PVA


What I want:

- Pass blob url to a flow for external partner

- Get the blob URL at PVA for further processing.


What I have already / Assumption:

- Uploaded the attachment to BLOB

- Assuming ChatBot user is an external user.

Hello @Jcook 

Based on the response sending the blob URL as message activity is not an option as an outside user will not have the blob url when the document is uploaded. 


At the Git example - it mentions upload event at PVA - Question can it be captured at PVA Bot somehow so that I can use the BLOB URL?


Note I have already uploaded the file now I need is its blob url at PVA (may be as a variable) for further processing. The user doesn't have a blob url.
