The crypto bot's most common errors

Binance

Filter failure: MIN_NOTIONAL - Your first order does not exceed the minimum set by Binance. You should increase the amount of the extra order or your first order. $11 is usually enough. The fixed-value option will help you set the first order amount in a more accurate way.

The account has got insufficient balance for requested action 

  • If the error occurs in the very beginning, it means you don’t have enough funds to start a trading deal;
  • If the error occurs at the take-profit stage, after the first order had been executed, it means that the trading bot can’t sell the amount of coins that were originally bought. This can happen if the fee was partially paid in certain coins. In your future transactions, allow the crypto bot to buy coins for fees or pay it directly on Binance in BNB. To fix this, you need to buy the minimum amount of traded coins, unfreeze the cryptocurrency bot and reset Take Profit.

Invalid API key, IP, or permissions for action - API keys or exchange permissions are set wrong.

Market is closed - the pair is not trading due to maintenance or it was delisted.

HitBTC

Insufficient funds to place an order - Your first order does not exceed the minimum set by the HitBTC exchange. It is necessary to increase the amount of the first or extra order. $11 is usually enough. 

Error placing Extra order Error create newBuyOrder (Order rejected). orderExceedsLimit - The crypto trading bot was unable to place an extra order due to lack of funds.

Error create newBuyOrder (Order rejected). orderExceedsLimit - Not enough funds to start a deal.

Error placing Extra order Error create newBuyOrder (InvalidRequest). Connection error - Connection error, no need to worry, just restart the bot after a few minutes.

Error create TakeProfit order (Order rejected). orderExceedsLimit - It means that the bot can’t sell the amount of coins that were originally bought. This could happen if the fee was partially paid with certain coins. In your future transactions, allow the cryptocurrency bot to buy coins to pay fees. To fix this, you need to buy the minimum amount of traded coins, unfreeze the bot and reset Take Profit.

cURL error 7: Failed to connect - Failed to connect to the cryptocurrency exchange. Try again in a couple minutes.

Error canceling Extra order Can’t cancel order (Reject Exception) - Failed to cancel the order.

General troubleshooting for Azure Bot Service bots

  • Article
  • 11 minutes to read

APPLIES TO: SDK v4

These frequently asked questions can help you to troubleshoot common bot development or operational issues.

How can I troubleshoot issues with my bot?

  1. Debug your bot's source code with Visual Studio Code or Visual Studio.
  2. Test your bot using the Bot Framework Emulator before you deploy it to the cloud.
  3. Deploy your bot to a cloud hosting platform such as Azure and then test connectivity to your bot by using the built-in web chat control on your bot's dashboard in the Azure portal. If you encounter issues with your bot after you deploy it to Azure, you might consider using this blog article: Understanding Azure troubleshooting and support.
  4. Rule out authentication as a possible issue.
  5. Test your bot on Web Chat, Teams, or any other channel you intend to use with your bot. This will help you to validate the end-to-end user experience.
  6. Consider testing your bot on channels that have additional authentication requirements such as Direct Line or Web Chat.
  7. Review the how-to debug a bot and the other debugging articles in that section.

How can I troubleshoot authentication issues?

For details about troubleshooting authentication issues with your bot, see troubleshooting Bot Framework authentication.

How do I test network connectivity between bots and a channel?

You can use the IP addresses, generated by the steps below, to verify if there is any rule blocking the connection with those addresses. See section Check firewall traces on failed connections.

Test connection from bot to channel

  1. In your browser, navigate to the Azure portal.

  2. Select your bot App Service whose connection you want to test.

  3. In the left pane, in the Development Tools section, select Advanced Tools.

  4. In the right pane, click Go. The Kudu information page is displayed.

  5. In the top menu bar, click Debug console. Then, in the drop down menu, click CMD. The Kudu bot web app console is opened. For more information, see Kudu.

    kudu cmd console

  6. Run and check if the DNS resolution is working. Notice that (name server lookup) is a network administration command-line tool for querying the Domain Name System (DNS) to obtain domain name or IP address mapping, or other DNS records. If the DNS resolution is working, the response to this command will contain the relevant information.

    kudu cmd console bot channel dns

    The WHOIS IP Lookup Tool is useful to get information about IP addresses.

  7. Run . (The option is used to obtain a response containing the header only.) Double check that an HTTP status of 301 is returned This is a check that there is connectivity.

    kudu cmd console http 301

Test connection from channel to bot

Because curl doesn't have access to the production site, and is on the public internet, you must use curl in simulation mode. Perform the steps shown below outside a Virtual Private Network (VNET), for example, using a cell phone hotspot. See also What is Azure Virtual Network?.

  1. Run . The DNS resolution is working if the response to this command contains relevant information.

    kudu cmd console channel bot dns

  2. Run and check whether an appropriate HTTP status code is returned (for example, 405 method not allowed). The method specified in the request is not allowed for the resource identified by the specified URI. This is just a way to check that there is connectivity.

    kudu cmd console http 405

  3. If you do not get the response from the bot, write down the client's IP address.

Check firewall traces on failed connections

Use the IP addresses from and and check if there is a rule blocking connection with those addresses on either direction.

I'm using the Bot Framework SDK for .NET. How can I troubleshoot issues with my bot?

Look for exceptions. In Visual Studio 2019, go to Debug > Windows > Exception Settings. In the Exceptions Settings window, select the Break When Thrown checkbox next to Common Language Runtime Exceptions. You may also see diagnostics output in your Output window when there are thrown or unhandled exceptions.

Look at the call stack. In Visual Studio, you can choose whether or you are debugging Just My Code or not. Examining the full call stack may provide additional insight into any issues.

Ensure all dialog methods end with a plan to handle the next message. All dialog steps need to feed into the next step of the waterfall, or end the current dialog to pop it off the stack. If a step is not correctly handled, the conversation will not continue like you expect. Take a look at the concept article for dialogs for more on dialogs.

What causes an error with HTTP status code 429 "Too Many Requests"?

An error response with HTTP status code 429 indicates that too many requests have been issued in a given amount of time. The body of the response should include an explanation of the problem and may also specify the minimum required interval between requests. One possible source for this error is the ngrok tool. If you are on a free plan and running into ngrok's limits, go to the pricing and limits page on their website for more options.

Why aren't my bot messages getting received by the user?

The message activity generated in response must be correctly addressed, otherwise it won't arrive at its intended destination. In the vast majority of cases you will not need to handle this explicitly; the SDK takes care of addressing the message activity for you.

Correctly addressing an activity means including the appropriate conversation IDs details along with details about the sender. In most cases, the message activity is sent in response to one that had arrived. Therefore, the addressing details can be taken from the inbound activity.

If you examine traces or audit logs, you can check to make sure your messages are correctly addressed. If they aren't, set a breakpoint in your bot and see where the IDs are being set for your message.

How can I run background tasks in ASP.NET?

In some cases, you may want to initiate an asynchronous task that waits for a few seconds and then executes some code to clear the user profile or reset conversation/dialog state. For details about how to achieve this, see How to run Background Tasks in ASP.NET. In particular, consider using HostingEnvironment.QueueBackgroundWorkItem.

My bot is slow to respond to the first message it receives. How can I make it faster?

Bots are web services and some hosting platforms, including Azure, automatically put the service to sleep if it does not receive traffic for a certain period of time. If this happens to your bot, it must restart from scratch the next time it receives a message, which makes its response much slower than if it was already running.

Some hosting platforms enable you to configure your service so that it will not be put to sleep. If your bot is hosted on Azure Bot Service Web Apps, navigate to your bot's service in the Azure portal, select Application settings, and then select Always on. This option is available in most, but not all, service plans.

How can I guarantee message delivery order?

The Bot Framework will preserve message ordering as much as possible. For example, if you send message A and wait for the completion of that HTTP operation before you initiate another HTTP operation to send message B. Some channels, such as SMS and email, do not guarentee ordering to the user's device.

Why are parts of my message text being dropped?

The Bot Framework and many channels interpret text as if it were formatted with Markdown. Check to see if your text contains characters that may be interpreted as Markdown syntax.

How can I support multiple bots at the same bot service endpoint?

This sample shows how to configure the with the right and use a simple to authenticate multiple App IDs and passwords.

Identifiers


How do identifiers work in the Bot Framework?

For details about identifiers in the Bot Framework, see the Bot Framework guide to identifiers.

How can I get access to the user ID?

Bot Framework channels present the user's ID in the field of any Activity sent by the user. SMS and email messages will provide the raw user ID in this property. Some channels obscure the property so it contains unique ID for the user which differs from the user's ID in the channel. If you need to connect to an existing account, you can use a sign-in card and implement your own OAuth flow to connect the user ID to your own service's user ID.

Why are my Facebook user names not showing anymore?

Did you change your Facebook password? Doing so will invalidate the access token, and you will need to update your bot's configuration settings for the Facebook Messenger channel in the Azure portal.

Why is my Kik bot replying "I'm sorry, I can't talk right now"?

Bots in development on Kik are allowed 50 subscribers. After 50 unique users have interacted with your bot, any new user that attempts to chat with your bot will receive the message "I'm sorry, I can't talk right now." For more information, see Kik documentation.

How can I use authenticated services from my bot?

For Azure Active Directory authentication, see the Add authentication to your bot tutorial.

Note

If you add authentication and security functionality to your bot, you should ensure that the patterns you implement in your code comply with the security standards that are appropriate for your application.

How can I limit access to my bot to a pre-determined list of users?

Some channels, such as SMS and email, provide unscoped addresses. In these cases, messages from the user will contain the raw user ID in the property.

Other channels, such as Facebook and Slack, provide either scoped or tenanted addresses in a way that prevents a bot from being able to predict a user's ID ahead of time. In these cases, you will need to authenticate the user via a login link or shared secret in order to determine whether or not they are authorized to use the bot.

Why does my Direct Line 1.1 conversation start over after every message?

Note

This sections does not apply to the latest version of the Direct Line protocol, 3.0

If your Direct Line conversation appears to start over after every message, the property is likely missing or in messages that your Direct Line client sent to the bot. When a Direct Line client sends a message with the property either missing or , the Direct Line service automatically allocates an ID, so every message that the client sends will appear to originate from a new, different user.

To fix this, set the property in each message that the Direct Line client sends to a stable value that uniquely represents the user who is sending the message. For example, if a user is already signed-in to a webpage or app, you might use that existing user ID as the value of the property in messages that the user sends. Alternatively, you might choose to generate a random user ID on page-load or on application-load, store that ID in a cookie or device state, and use that ID as the value of the property in messages that the user sends.

What causes the Direct Line 3.0 service to respond with HTTP status code 502 "Bad Gateway"?

Direct Line 3.0 returns HTTP status code 502 when it tries to contact your bot but the request does not complete successfully. This error indicates that either the bot returned an error or the request timed out. For more information about errors that your bot generates, go to the bot's dashboard within the Azure portal and click the "Issues" link for the affected channel. If you have Application Insights configured for your bot, you can also find detailed error information there.

Why do I get an Authorization_RequestDenied exception when creating a bot?

Permission to create Azure Bot Service bots are managed through the Azure Active Directory (AAD) portal. If permissions are not properly configured in the AAD portal, users will get the Authorization_RequestDenied exception when trying to create a bot service.

First check whether you are a "Guest" of the directory:

  1. Sign-in to Azure portal.
  2. Click All services and search for active.
  3. Select Azure Active Directory.
  4. Click Users.
  5. Find the user from the list and ensure that the User Type is not a Guest.

Azure Active Directory User-type

Once you verified that you are not a Guest, then to ensure that users within an active directory can create bot service, the directory administrator needs to configure the following settings:

  1. Sign-in to AAD portal. Go to Users and groups and select User settings.
  2. Under App registration section, set Users can register applications to Yes. This allows users in your directory to create bot service.
  3. Under the External users section, set Guest users permissions are limited to No. This allows guest users in your directory to create bot service.

Azure Active Directory Admin Center

Why can't I migrate my bot?

If your bot is registered in dev.botframework.com, and you want to migrate it to Azure, but are having issues migrating your bot, it might be because the bot belongs to a directory other than your default directory. Try these steps:

  1. From the target directory, add a new user (via email address) that is not a member of the default directory, grant the user contributor role on the subscriptions that are the target of the migration.

  2. From Dev Portal, add the user's email address as co-owners of the bot that should be migrated. Then sign out.

  3. Sign in to Dev Portal as the new user and proceed to migrate the bot.

Bot framework composer error - ONNX Multilingual model failed to load, Bot is failing Failed to find or load Model with path

In this article we will see how to fix the following error in Bot framework composer deployment for a multilingual bot:

Error details:

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  • Create Bot in Composer
  • Added Skill (another Bot) , which brought in Orchestrator models
  • Added multi lingual capabilities into the Bot'
  • Runtime Bot fails with the below
  • Failed to find or load Model with path
  • C:\home\site\wwwroot\model\pretrained.20210205.microsoft.dte.00.06.unicoder_multilingual Fails in emulator as well. Path is local path when deployed to Azure, above path is given

Expected behavior

  • English language works in same bot, this issue occurs when another locale is selected
  • additional info: My Root dialog uses Orchestrator recognizer and immediate next dialog where it fails uses Regular expression recognizer/ i tried with orchestrator also and it fails there as well

image.png

image.png

If the failure is happening only when you deploy multilingual bot to Azure can you please verify on your Azure deployment if that folder C:\home\site\wwwroot\model\pretrained.20210205.microsoft.dte.00.06.unicoder_multilingual exists?

It is possible there is a missing file in the multilingual model causing this only on deployment to Azure. Can you try opening your bot project folder and open the .csproj file locally, and modify the includes to include */.model.

Reference:

Error while creating bot

it ends up with an error:

MsaAppId: MsaAppId is already in use..

I have same problem, when I create the web app bot (select Auto create App ID and password option), it failed at creating botServices resource.

Deployment:

enter image description here

Failed operation details:

enter image description here

I also tried to manually create app on https://apps.dev.microsoft.com and provide App ID and password for creating botService, but the deployment still failed.

enter image description here

As a workaround, I manually created Bot Channels Registration and specify corresponding web application URL as message endpoint, and then modify Application settings of that corresponding Azure web site with new App ID and password, which works for me.

Note:

I suspect something wrong with Azure while performing deployment and creating botServices, if possible, you can report it on Azure portal or create an issue on github.

Updated:

I click Automation options and download the template after I enter the required information/fields for creating a new web app bot, and then I perform deployment by using powershell with downloaded template&parameter file, which work for me, you can try it.

Discord Bot Error Code 50013

I took a look into your Zap and I do see what you mean. I did some digging in our logs, and it looks like this is an error we've seen before that typically has to do with the permissions of the Bot itself. In this case, the message is indicating this bot user doesn't have Discord's full "Manage Webhooks" permission that Zapier will need for making posts. 

In your server settings, you can adjust the permission of Zapier's Role:

https://cdn.zapier.com/storage/photos/1cdceb4f6040a804cee4dcd748c6d973.png

Both "Manage Webhooks" and "Send Messages" will be the most important permissions to turn on:

https://cdn.zapier.com/storage/photos/347ca756d67eb0ec89bbbbd50f2fc4f8.png

Your note re: the solution: The Zapier role needs to be dragged to be above the role you are trying to assign. Otherwise it won't be able to assign. 

Using bot accounts error - failed create bot Edit on GitHub

Bot accounts access the Mattermost RESTful API on behalf of a bot through the use of the personal access tokens feature. Bot accounts are just like user accounts, except they:

  • Can’t be logged into.
  • Can’t be used to create other bot accounts.
  • Don’t count as a registered user and therefore don’t count towards the total number of users for an Enterprise Edition license.

Additional benefits include:

  • System Admins can enable bot accounts to post to any channel in the system, including private teams, Private channels, or Direct Messages.
  • Integrations created by a user and tied to a bot account no longer break if the user leaves the company.
  • Once created, bot accounts behave just like regular user accounts and can be added to teams and channels similar to users.
  • Bot accounts are a safer way to integrate with Mattermost through the RESTful API and Plugin API because there is no need to manage shared logins with these accounts.
  • A tag is used throughout Mattermost where bot accounts are referenced, including messages and user lists.

Note that currently:

  • Only System Admins or plugins can create or manage bot accounts.
  • Only user accounts can create and configure webhooks and slash commands.
  • In Mattermost Enterprise Edition, service accounts without an email address pulled from LDAP or SAML systems are not yet supported.

If you would like to see improvements to bot accounts, let us know in the Feature Proposal Forum.

Configuration settings 

By default, error - failed create bot, plugins can create and manage bot accounts. To enable bot account creation through the user interface or the RESTful API:

  1. Go to System Console > Integrations > Bot Accounts.
  2. Set Enable Bot Account Creation to true.

Once set, System Admin can create bot accounts for integrations using the Integrations > Bot Accounts link in the description provided.

Bot account creation 

Below are error - failed create bot ways to create bot accounts. After the bot account is created, make sure to:

  1. Copy the generated bot access token for your integration.
  2. To add the bot account to teams and channels you want it to interact in, select the team drop-down menu, then select Invite People. Next, select Invite Member and enter the bot account in the Add or Invite People field. Then select Invite Members. You should now be able to add the bot account to channels like any other user.

User interface (UI) 

  1. Go to the Product menu and select Integrations > Bot Accounts.
  2. Select Add Bot Account.
  3. Set the Username of the bot. The username must begin with a letter, and contain between 3 and 22 lowercase characters made up of numbers, letters, and symbols including &ldquo.”, “-”, or “_&rdquo.
  4. (Optional) Upload an image for the Bot Icon. This will be used as the profile image of the bot throughout Mattermost.
  5. (Optional) Set a Display Name and Description.
  6. (Optional) Choose what role the bot should have. Defaults to Member. If you assign System Admin, the bot will have read and write access for any Public channels, Error - failed create bot channels, and Direct Messages.
  7. (Optional) Select additional permissions for the account. Enable the bot to post to all Mattermost channels, or post to all Mattermost Public channels.
  8. Select Create Bot Account.
  9. Copy the token displayed on the Setup Successful page before you select Done as you won’t have access to the token again once you close the screen.

RESTful API 

Use the RESTful API to create a bot. You must have permissions to create bots.

See our API documentation to learn more about creating and managing bots through the API.

To authorize your bot via RESTful API use. Access Token is not the and won’t be visible again once created.

Command line interface (CLI) 

You can use the following CLI command to convert an existing user account error - failed create bot a bot:

In addition to email, you can identify the user by its username or user ID.

Bot accounts which were converted from user accounts will have their authentication data cleared if they were email/password accounts. Those synchronized from LDAP/SAML will not have their authentication data cleared so that LDAP/SAML synchronization performs correctly.

Plugins 

Plugins can create bot accounts through an helper function. For an example, see the Demo Plugin.

Bots created by a plugin use the plugin’s ID as the creator, unless otherwise specified by the plugin.

Technical notes 

Data model 

Each bot account has a row in the Users table and the Bots table. The entries are tied together by .

The Bots table schema is described as follows:

FieldDescriptionTypeRequired
UserIdUser ID of the bot userstringY
UsernameUsername of the bot accountstringY
DisplayNameDisplay name of the bot accountstringN
DescriptionDescription of the bot accountstringN
OwnerIdUser ID of the owner of the botstringY
CreateAtUnix timestamp of creation timeint64Y
UpdateAtUnix timestamp of update timeint64Y
DeleteAtUnix timestamp of deletion timeint64Y

Frequently asked questions 

Should I migrate all my integrations to use bot accounts? 

For your integrations using RESTful API and plugins, yes. To rdl sig error so, you can either convert an existing account to a bot, or create a new bot account using the steps outlined above.

Once you create a bot account, use the generated token to access the RESTful API on behalf of a bot and interact in the Mattermost server.

For your webhook and slash command integrations, you cannot migrate them to use bot accounts, as they require a user account at this time. However, error - failed create bot, an option is to migrate the webhooks or slash commands to a plugin, which in turn can use bot accounts.

What happens if a plugin is using a bot account that already exists as a user account? 

For a concrete example, suppose you enable the Mattermost GitHub plugin, which uses a bot account, while an existing user account was created for webhook integrations.

Once the plugin is enabled, the plugin posts as the account but without a tag. An error message is logged to the server logs recommending the System Admin to convert the user to a bot account by running in the CLI.

If the user is an existing user account you want to preserve, change its username and restart the Mattermost server, after which the plugin will create a bot account with the name .

How do I convert an existing account to a bot account? 

Use the following CLI command to convert an existing user account to a bot:

In addition to email, you may identify the user by its username or user ID.

Bot accounts which were converted from user accounts will have their authentication data cleared if they were email/password smarty error problem writing temporary file. Those synchronized from LDAP/SAML will not have their authentication data cleared so that LDAP/SAML synchronization performs correctly.

How can I quickly test if my bot account is working? 

Add the bot to a team and channel you belong to, then use the following curl command to post with the bot:

Replace the following parameters:

  • with the channel you added the bot to
  • with the bot access token generated when you created the bot account
  • with your Error - failed create bot domain, e.g.

Do bot access tokens expire? 

No, but you can automate your integration to cycle its token through the REST API:

  1. Use GetUserAccessTokensForUser to list the existing tokens for the user.
  2. Use CreateUserAccessToken to generate a new token.
  3. Update the services that leverage the token with the new value from step 1.
  4. Use RevokeUserAccessToken to revoke the old token based on the .

For more information about access tokens, see the personal access tokens documentation.

Do bot accounts make it easier to impersonate someone else such as the CEO or an HR coordinator? 

Possibly yes. Currently a System Admin can disable overriding the profile picture and the username from integrations to help prevent impersonation, but this is not the case for bot accounts.

Mitigations:

  • tag is used everywhere in the UI where bot accounts are referenced, including messages and user lists.
  • For Direct Message channels, the channel header distinguishes the bot from a regular user account with a tag.

What happens when a user who owns bot accounts is disabled? 

By default, bot accounts managed by the deactivated user are disabled for enhanced security. Those with permissions to manage bot accounts can re-enable them via the Product menu > Integrations > Bot Accounts.

We strongly recommend creating new tokens for the bot, error - failed create bot, to ensure the user who was deactivated no longer has access to read or write data in the system via the bot access token.

If you prefer to have bot accounts remain enabled after user deactivation, set to in your file.

Can bot accounts edit messages through the RESTful API? 

Yes. By default, bot accounts can update their own posts.

If you find yourself unable to edit posts as a bot, check the following:

  1. Instead of using a slash command to respond directly, use an an API call for the initial interaction with a user to enable message edits.
  2. If your system is using advanced permissions, then post edits could be disabled for users.

If neither of the above help resolve your issue, you also have the option to choose what role the bot account has. If System Admin is chosen, then the bot can update any posts in the system. Note that giving the System Admin role to a bot account enables the bot with other System Admin privileges so this should be done with care.

If AD/LDAP or SAML synchronization is enabled, do bot accounts need to have an associated email address in AD/LDAP or SAML? 

When AD/LDAP or SAML synchronization is enabled, you can create bot accounts using the steps outlined above. These bot accounts won’t require an email address.

If you need to sync service accounts from AD/LDAP or SAML to Mattermost and use them as bot accounts, please reach out to us to discuss in detail. You may not need to sync service accounts and use them as bot accounts to meet your use case.

How are bot accounts identified in compliance exports? 

As of v5.14, a field named is added to Compliance Exports, including Global Relay, Actiance, and CSV. The field identifies whether a message was posted by a or by a account.

Error while creating bot

it ends up with an error:

MsaAppId: MsaAppId is already in use.

I have same problem, when I create the web app bot (select Auto create App ID and password option), it failed at creating botServices resource.

Deployment:

enter image description here

Failed operation details:

enter image description here

I also tried to manually create app on https://apps.dev.microsoft.com and provide App ID and password for creating botService, but the deployment still failed.

enter image description here

As a workaround, I manually created Bot Channels Registration and specify corresponding web application URL as message endpoint, and then modify Application settings of that corresponding Azure web site with new App ID and password, which works for me.

Note:

I suspect something wrong with Azure while performing deployment and creating botServices, if possible, you can report it on Azure portal or create an issue on github.

Updated:

I click Automation options and download the template after I enter the required information/fields for creating a new web app bot, and then I perform deployment by using powershell with downloaded template&parameter file, which work for me, you can try it.

Bots

Give Webex users access to outside services right from their Webex spaces. Bots help users automate tasks, bring external content into the discussion, and gain efficiencies.

Create a Bot

anchorBots Explained
anchor

Bots are similar to regular Webex users. They can participate in 1-to-1 and group spaces and users can message them directly or add them to a group space. A special badge is added to a bot's avatar in the Webex clients so users know they're interacting with a bot instead of a human.

A bot can only access messages sent to it directly. In group spaces, bots must be @mentioned to access the message. In 1-to-1 spaces, a bot has access to all messages from the user.

Bots do not, however, perform actions within Webex on behalf of a Webex user. If you're creating an application that needs to participate in Webex and perform actions with a user's account, check out Integrations.

anchorTypes of Bots
anchor

Bots come in all different shapes and sizes. Here are some ideas for a few different types of bots you can make:

Notifiers

Notifier bots typically respond to events in external services and post a summary in Webex. For example, error - failed create bot, a GitHub Bot may listen for commits on a particular repo and post the committer's name and comment into a Webex space set aside for this purpose. Or a Deal Bot that lives in an account-specific space and posts updates from a CRM along with relevant news about the company like a product launch or earnings report.

Controllers

Controller bots act as a text-based remote control for external services. For example, a Jira Bot may allow software engineers and product managers to control or query information from the popular bug tracking system Jira, all from the comfort of a Webex space.

Controller bots are generally passive, waiting for someone in the room to issue a command. In group rooms, bots can only see messages in which they are mentioned (1:1 rooms bots can see all messages as they are automatically "mentioned"). Your users are required to mention the bot preceding the command like where is the bot's name.

Currently, the Webex SDKs do not support extracting commands from messages. You'll need to parse it out after the mention. Future versions of the Webex SDKs will have built-in support for commands. Keep your eyes on the blog for updates.

Assistants

Virtual assistants are the holy grail of chatbots. At minimum, an assistant should understand natural language, allowing the user to ask it questions as they would to a human.

Recent advancements in NLP (Natural Language Processing) have made understanding natural language requests not only possible, but quite accessible to the average developer. Chrome c runtime error notably, Google launched Google Cloud Natural Language API in the error - failed create bot of 2016, providing syntax parsing, sentiment analysis and deep noun classification.

Responding to natural language is a good first step but a truly exceptional assistant bot will be conversational, using past interactions to contextualize the most recent query. This is a very complex problem domain; luckily there are error - failed create bot like Dialogflow providing a conversational platform built specifically for bots.

anchorCreating a Webex Bot
anchor

Creating a Webex Bot is super easy. If you're logged in, select My Webex Apps from the menu under your avatar at the top of this page, click "Create a New App" then "Create a Bot" to error - failed create bot the wizard.

You'll be asked to provide some basic information about the bot: bot name, bot username, and an icon. These fields are end-user facing, so make them as descriptive as possible. Only the bot's first name will be shown when mentioned in messages, so try to avoid spaces in the bot name, error - failed create bot. The description will be shown to users if you submit your bot to the Webex App Hub.

Webex App Hub is not supported for Webex for Government (FedRAMP)

Once you've filled out the registration form click "Add Bot", and if everything goes smoothly you're all set! You'll be given an access token for the new bot. This access token will be used to authenticate your bot with the Webex REST API.

The bot's access token will only be displayed once, error - failed create bot. Make sure to scroll down on the confirmation page, copy the token and keep it somewhere safe. If you misplace it, you can always generate a new one by finding the bot in My Webex Apps and selecting "Regenerate Access Token" from the edit page.

anchorResponding to Events
anchor

After creating a bot, you can use its access token with the Webex REST APIs to perform actions as the bot, such as sending a message with an interactive card to someone. To respond to events within Webex, such as someone sending your bot a message or adding it to a group space, you'll need to configure webhooks. Webhooks will let you know when an activity has occurred so you can take action. Check out the Webhooks Guide for more information about configuring webhooks.

With cards, you can give your users even more ways to interact with your bot or service, right in the Webex clients. Use the Buttons and Cards Designer to quickly create and prototype cards for your bot, error - failed create bot. See the Buttons and Cards Guide for more information about cards.

anchorDifferences Between Bots and People
anchor

One key difference between Webex Bots and regular users is that, in group spaces, bots only have access to messages in which they are mentioned. This means that webhooks only fire when the bot is mentioned in a space.

Also, listing messages requires that you specify a special query parameter.

In addition people have a that must be resolved via /people, bots have a Bot Id and aerror - failed create bot. The Bot Id nvflash nverror 0x5 shown in the apps page and is usually only known to the developer. The bot's can be looked up via the bot's email address in /people.

anchorBot Frameworks & Tools
anchor

There are several bot frameworks that can greatly simplify the bot development process by abstracting away the low-level communications with the Webex REST API, such as creating and sending API requests and configuring webhooks. Instead, you can focus on the building the interaction and business logic of your bot.

Flint is an open source bot framework with support for regex pattern matching for messages and more.

Botkit is a popular open source bot framework with advanced conversational support as well as integrations with a comprehensive array of natural language processing and storage providers. You can get started with Botkit by cloning the Webex Botkit Starter Kit.

The Cisco Webex Ambassador program has links to several more open source bot starter kits. Keep your eyes on our blog for updates and news about our community-supported tools!
