Power Virtual Agents - Retrieve User profile from Teams


I have a question about authentication in Power virtual agents,

After deploying PVA bot to teams, 

I'm not able to get the user details who are interacting with the chat bot, There are some blogs suggesting for SSO and end user authentication(O365/Azure AD) but I want to access the user information from teams itself.

Is there any other way to retrieve the UserName/Email from Teams without user interaction.

Thanks for the reply!

I implemented the same for my bot (End user authentication)

But here as we deploy the bot to teams, it should already have all the user information. So, i want to get it from there and don't want to explicitly have that login button and  ask the user to authenticate again.

Hi @Swathi_Nalla ,


Now it's available to use SSO with Microsoft Teams in Public Preview. You can now configure your bots to automatically use Teams’ authentication, so their end users don’t have to sign-in when chatting with a PVA bot in the Teams channel, streamlining the user’s experience.

Power Virtual Agents support for Teams channel Single Sign-on is available in Public Preview | Micro...
