Skill manifest utterance sources - used for topic trigger phrases?

If I create a Bot Framework skill, in the manifestTemplate.json, you must supply example trigger uttterances, either by pointing to an Intent in a .lu file, or by supplying raw text utterances in the manifest - see https://microsoft.github.io/botframework-solutions/skills/handbook/manifest/

 

When you add a skill to a PAVA topic, do these example utterances automatically get used as topic trigger phrases for the topic where you add the skill, or must you manually define them as trigger phrases? Any plans to enable automatic usage?

Hi @AndyCW ,

 

You are correct, the PVA does not use those utterances. You should use the topic trigger phrases to trigger the correct topic, which contains your skill.

Thanks but that doesn't address my question.

To restate, if you create a BF Skill, you have to supply trigger phrases within the manifest.

For example:

"triggers": {
  "utterances": [
    {
      "locale": "en",
      "text": [
        "2 hour meeting with darren at 5 on tuesday",
        "add a meeting with darren to my calendar"
      ]
    }
  ]
}

 

But it seems that PAVA does not use these utterances, unless I'm missing something. Does it?
