Retrieve UserName from Bot

My Organization has Office 365.  I'm trying to get the user's name from Virtual Agent on my webpage without having the user enter their name.  I can't seem to find a solution

Hi @MillerNation ,

 

You need to implement the Authentication to connect in Office 365:

It sounds weird. If I'd make a bot for a Teams channel, why there is another authentication needed? And image how could I add an app to azure ad at a big enterprise...

Totally agree with what @Yoghurt  said.

 

the purpose is to avoid user to enter their name during the conversation, instead, they now get a login window to enter their email and password. #Counterproductive. 

Hi @BatInDaCave,

Did you manage to solve the problem?

I have the same problem.
