Create a new LUIS app in the LUIS portal

There are a couple of ways to create a LUIS app. You can create a LUIS app in the LUIS portal, or through the LUIS authoring APIs.

Using the LUIS portal

You can create a new app in the LUIS portal in several ways:

  • Start with an empty app and create intents, utterances, and entities.
  • Start with an empty app and add a prebuilt domain.
  • Import a LUIS app from a JSON file that already contains intents, utterances, and entities.

Using the authoring APIs

You can create a new app with the authoring APIs in a couple of ways:

  • Start with an empty app and create intents, utterances, and entities.
  • Start with a prebuilt domain.

Create new app in LUIS

  1. On My Apps page, select Create new app.

    LUIS apps list

  2. In the dialog box, name your application "TravelAgent".

    Create new app dialog

  3. Choose your application culture (for TravelAgent app, choose English), and then select Done.

    Note

    The culture cannot be changed once the application is created.

Import an app from file

  1. On My Apps page, select Import new app.
  2. In the pop-up dialog, select a valid app JSON file, and then select Done.

Import errors

Possible errors are:

  • An app with that name already exists. Reimport the app, and set the Optional Name to a new name.

Next steps

Your first task in the app is to add intents.
