Custom Data Connection for QnA Maker

ASPEWed, 05/09/2018 - 13:30


This video blog (vBlog) is an extension of Karthik Bharathy's 'PowerBots - Creating smart apps with PowerApps and Microsoft Bots'. This vBlog focuses on the following three topics:

  1. QnA - Creating a new service in QnA and also providing the URL for making the POST call. This is where we get the subscription key as well.
  2. POSTMAN - Building a custom JSON file using POSTMAN. I recommend signing up, downloading, and installing the desktop application.
  3. PowerApps - Create the custom connector in PowerApps.




This article focuses on building the connection and creating Bots using PowerApps only. For building a web interface Bot you can use Microsoft's BOT Framework (Preview) or Azure Bot Service.
