Manage a bot
This topic explains how to manage a bot using the Azure portal.
Bot settings overview
In the Overview blade, you can find high level information about your bot. For example, you can see your bot's Subscription ID, pricing tier, and Messaging endpoint.
You can find most of your bot's management options under the BOT MANAGEMENT section. Below is a list of options to help you manage your bot.
|Build||The Build tab provides options for making changes to your bot. This option is not available for Registration Only Bot.|
|Test in Web Chat||Use the integrated Web Chat control to help you quickly test your bot.|
|Analytics||If analytics is turned on for your bot, you can view the analytics data that Application Insights has collected for your bot.|
|Channels||Configure the channels your bot uses to communicate with users.|
|Settings||Manage various bot profile settings such as display name, analytics, and messaging endpoint.|
|Speech priming||Manage the connections between your LUIS app and the Bing Speech service..|
|Bot Service pricing||Manage the pricing tier for the bot service.|
App service settings
The Application Settings blade contains detailed information about your bot, such as the bot's environment, debug settings, and application settings keys such as botFilePath and botFileSecret.
MicrosoftAppID and MicrosoftAppPassword
The MicrosoftAppID and MicrosoftAppPassword are kept within the bot's
.bot file. To retrieve them, download the bot file and decrypt it, which may be necessary for you to test locally with the ID and password.
Bot file path and secret
You can find the botFilePath and the botFileSecret for your bot in the Application settings blade.
The Bot Channels Registration bot service comes with a MicrosoftAppID but because there is no app service associated with this type of service, there is no Application Settings blade for you to look up the MicrosoftAppPassword. To get the password, you must go generate one. To generate the password for a Bot Channels Registration, see Bot Channels Registration password
Now that you have explored the Bot Service blade in the Azure portal, learn how to use the Online Code Editor to customize your bot.
