We need to attach files into the chatbot using the Power Virtual Agents.
Great idea! We also need the ability to attach files / screenshots to chatbots as we are planning to use this to log tickets in a connected system.
While we provide better in-app support for this, you can do the following,
We've provided a github sample that attempts to mimic this capability.

Hello: I have a skill linked to my PVA which is able to process an attachment.
I have hooked up this PVA to Facebook with which I try to send the attachments:
The PVA is blocking the attachment message transfer to the skill with a blocking(confirmed checking skill conversation state logging: message is never received) "Could you please tell me that using text ...". This is working fine when calling the skill directly.
In short: imho the PVA should not process/block messages intended for a skill(intended for complex tasks that PVA can't handle yet) else there is no point in extending with skills?
