Microsoft Bot Framework Bot Builder SDK for Python.

Project description

Azure DevOps status for master branch Latest PyPI package version

Within the Bot Framework, the Bot Connector service enables your bot to exchange messages with users on channels that are configured in the Bot Framework Portal.

How to Install

pip install botframework-connector

How to Use

Authentication

Your bot communicates with the Bot Connector service using HTTP over a secured channel (SSL/TLS). When your bot sends a request to the Connector service, it must include information that the Connector service can use to verify its identity.

To authenticate the requests, you’ll need configure the Connector with the App ID and password that you obtained for your bot during registration and the Connector will handle the rest.

More information: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/bot-framework/rest-api/bot-framework-rest-connector-authentication

Example

Client creation (with authentication), conversation initialization and activity send to user.

from botbuilder.schema import *
from botframework.connector import ConnectorClient
from botframework.connector.auth import MicrosoftAppCredentials

APP_ID = '<your-app-id>'
APP_PASSWORD = '<your-app-password>'
SERVICE_URL = 'https://slack.botframework.com'
CHANNEL_ID = 'slack'
BOT_ID = '<bot-id>'
RECIPIENT_ID = '<user-id>'

credentials = MicrosoftAppCredentials(APP_ID, APP_PASSWORD)
connector = ConnectorClient(credentials, base_url=SERVICE_URL)

conversation = connector.conversations.create_conversation(ConversationParameters(
            bot=ChannelAccount(id=BOT_ID),
            members=[ChannelAccount(id=RECIPIENT_ID)]))

connector.conversations.send_to_conversation(conversation.id, Activity(
            type=ActivityTypes.message,
            channel_id=CHANNEL_ID,
            recipient=ChannelAccount(id=RECIPIENT_ID),
            from_property=ChannelAccount(id=BOT_ID),
            text='Hello World!'))
