Authoring and publishing regions and the associated keys

LUIS authoring regions are supported by the LUIS portal. To publish a LUIS app to more than one region, you need at least one key per region.

LUIS Authoring regions

Note

As of January 20th 2021, The luis.au and luis.eu portals have been consolidated into a single LUIS portal. If you were using one of these portals, instead access LUIS at luis.ai.

LUIS has the following authoring regions available:

  • Australia east
  • West Europe
  • West US
  • Switzerland north

LUIS has one portal you can use regardless of region, www.luis.ai. You must still author and publish in the same region. Authoring regions have paired fail-over regions.

Publishing regions and Azure resources

The app is published to all regions associated with the LUIS resources added in the LUIS portal. For example, for an app created on www.luis.ai, if you create a LUIS or Cognitive Service resource in westus and add it to the app as a resource, the app is published in that region.

Public apps

A public app is published in all regions so that a user with a region-based LUIS resource key can access the app in whichever region is associated with their resource key.

Publishing regions are tied to authoring regions

The authoring region app can only be published to a corresponding publish region. If your app is currently in the wrong authoring region, export the app, and import it into the correct authoring region for your publishing region.

Note

LUIS apps created on https://www.luis.ai can now be published to all endpoints including the European and Australian regions.

Failover regions

Each region has a secondary region to fail over to. Europe fails over inside Europe and Australia fails over inside Australia.

Authoring regions have paired fail-over regions.
