So I have created a bot for internal IT support. Connected it to a QNAMaker to answer questions. works great.
Now, when the bot answers our users we will follow-up with a question if their issue was resolved, if they press no the bot sends off a ticket to IT with the user question and the bot answer. Perfect. Now, the only thing missing is the user information itself - I cannot seem to figure out how to send the user email or username to Power Automate so our internal IT can see who actually made this request.
So I have to ask the user his/hers name which I want to avoid.
Any takes on this?
Hi @OilPanic ,
You can create an authentication inside your bot, get the user token and send as a parameter to Power Automate and using Microsoft Graph to get user details.

Well, its required that the users manually authenticate with the bot when they start talking to the bot. Its a way of doing it but it still gives you an extra step for the user - so not much difference in asking their email or asking them to authenticate?
You can create a question inside the topic, using the Identifier field as "Users entire response" and the answer will be staying inside the variable.
Two ways to do it.
