Release History


  • [Breaking Change]: az bot create -v v4 -k webapp now creates an empty Web App Bot by default (i.e. no bot is deployed to the App Service).
    • To use the Echo Bot template that was always deployed in the past, use the new –echo flag when creating a v4 Web App Bot.

    • v3 bot creation does not support using the –echo flag.

  • [Breaking Change]: The default value for –version is now v4, not v3 (except for az bot prepare-publish).

  • [Breaking Change]: –lang no longer defaults to Csharp. If the command requires –lang and it is not provided, the command will error out.

  • [Breaking Change]: The –appid and –password args for az bot create are now required and can be created via az ad app create.
    • Add –appid and –password validations

  • [Breaking Change]: az bot create -v v4 does not create or use a Storage Account or Application Insights.

  • [Breaking Change]: Instead of mapping Application Insights regions for az bot create -v v3, the command only accepts regions where Application Insights is creatable.

  • [Breaking Change]: az bot update is no longer a generic update command, but instead can affect specific properties of a bot.

  • [Breaking Change]: All –lang flags now accept Javascript instead of Node. Node as a –lang value is no longer supported.

  • [Breaking Change]: az bot create -v v4 -k webapp no longer sets SCM_DO_BUILD_DURING_DEPLOYMENT to true. All deployments through Kudu will act according to their default behavior.

  • az bot download for bots without .bot files now create the language-specific configuration file with values from the Application Settings for the bot.

  • Add Typescript support to az bot prepare-deploy

  • Add warning message to az bot prepare-deploy for Javascript and Typescript bots.
    • This message only appears if the –code-dir doesn’t contain a package.json.

  • az bot prepare-deploy returns true if successful and has helpful verbose logging.

  • Add more available Application Insights regions to az bot create -v v3
