Connect a bot to Skype for Business

Skype for Business Online keeps you connected with co-workers and business partners through instant messaging, phone, and video calls. Extend this functionality by building bots that users can discover and interact with through the Skype for Business interface.

Note

The Skype for Business Bot Framework channel is currently supported for Skype for Business Online. Skype for Business Server 2015 is not supported.

Enable the channel

Open the bot on the Bot Framework Portal, click the Channels tab, and then click Skype for Business. The bot is now enabled.

Registering the bot with Skype for Business Online is performed by a Tenant Administrator of that Skype for Business tenant.
