Tutorial: Connect to a sample

Connect skill

Once you’ve deployed your Skill you can now add it to your Assistant.

To add your new Skill to your assistant/Bot we provide a botskills command line tool to automate the process of adding the Skill to your dispatch model and creating authentication connections where needed.

Run the following command from a command prompt within the directory of your assistant/Bot.

botskills connect --remoteManifest "https://<YOUR_SKILL_NAME>.azurewebsites.net/manifest/manifest-1.1.json" --cs --luisFolder "<PATH_TO_LU_FOLDER>"

Remember to re-publish your Assistant to Azure after you’ve added a Skill unless you plan on testing locally only

See Adding Skills for more details.
