Deploying a bot

Deploying a bot is done in two stages:

  1. Publishing a bot
  2. Connecting the bot to a channel

Power Virtual Agent lets you publish bots on multiple platforms or channels, as shown in the following screenshot:

You can connect your bot to as many channels you like, provided that it has been published at least once. Power Virtual Agents lets you publish the bot from within the app. If your bot is already connected to a channel, PVA takes care of publishing the bot to the channels you have connected it to. Once you've published the bot, you can share it with your colleagues and customers.

Let's go through the steps involved in the publishing process. In the following steps, we'll show you how to add the bot to Microsoft Teams.
