"The bot is not part of the conversation roster." in private channel

I'm trying to post an adaptive card to a private channel without any luck. I receive the following:


The request failed. Error code: 'BotRequestFailed'. Error Message: 'Request to the Bot framework failed with error: '{"error":{"code":"BotNotInConversationRoster","message":"The bot is not part of the conversation roster."}}'.'.


Why would access NOT be built into the private channel of which I am an owner?? Is there a work around for this?


Thanks in advance.

Hello @ShadowTech 

There was an earlier thread about the same issue, just with approvals, and it was pointed to the User Voice!

The entry seems to not to have moved forward, but take a look.

Kind regards, John

I made a similar post in one of the other Community forums but we managed to get around the message going to a private team channel by using the send email functionality in outlook integration.

A workaround we found was to use the private channel's email (if enabled for your team to send and email to the channel) I haven't tried sending adaptive cards but this gets around the lack of message functionality for our team.




I like this approach and I was going to use it but faced an issue, how to add dynamic content in the email itself to show properly in teams?


trying to add a link to a SharePoint Item is not looking good with me. I tried both html and teams messages format but both didn't work.
