Teams App Showing GUID instead of Bot Name

Hi all,

Just building my first bot and that all works fine.  Integration with Teams was a bit...clunky, but I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing the GUID being presented rather than the bot (or even App) name?  I followed the documentation and everything looks like it's filled out correctly, but in the chat for Teams, it represents itself as just the GUID.

 

Thanks for the help.

Re: Teams App Showing GUID instead of Bot Name

Thank you everyone for raising this issue.  This is a bug and has been fixed on our side.  For bots that have already been deployed to Teams, please follow the steps below to let bot name show up correctly in Teams:

1. Go to PVA, Configuration -> Channel -> Microsoft Teams and delete the channel

2. Re-add Microsoft Teams channel

3. Go to Microsoft Teams App studio and remove the app of the bot

4. Re-install (sideload) the app in Microsoft Teams

 

After step 4, the bot name will show up correctly.  If the user has previously chatted with the bot, they will see the name of the bot in the chat history list staying as a GUID.  That is due to back-end caching, it will be updated after some time when the back-end is updated.

 

Thank you again for your patience.

I have the same problem.

 

Also, when I add the bot it responds to the greeting and also something else it doesn't understand. I can't see what the bot has been sent.

It must be a bug. Also the Teams bot does not seem to respond to any published changes in Power Virtual Agents.
