Kore Bot SDK

Kore offers Bots SDKs as a set of platform-specific client libraries that provide a quick and convenient way to integrate Kore Bots chat capability into custom applications.

With just few lines of code, you can embed our Kore chat widget into your applications to enable end-users to interact with your applications using Natural Language. For more information, refer to

Kore Bot SDK for iOS developers

Kore Bot SDK for iOS enables you to talk to Kore bots over a web socket. This repo also comes with the code for sample application that developers can modify according to their Bot configuration.

Setting up


  • Service to generate JWT (JSON Web Tokens)- SDK uses this to send the user identity to Kore Platform.
  • SDK app credentials
    • Login to the Bots platform

    • Navigate to the Bot builder

    • Search and click on the bot

    • Go to channels

    • Enable Web / Mobile Client channel against the bot as shown in the screen below. Add bot to Web/Mobile Client channel

    • create new or use existing SDK app to obtain client id and client secret Obtain Client id and Client secret


Configuration changes

  • Setting up clientId, clientSecret, botId, chatBotName and identity in KoreBotSDK/KoreBotSDKDemo/SDKConfiguration.swift SDKConfiguration setup

Client id - Copy this id from Bot Builder SDK Settings ex. cs-5250bdc9-6bfe-5ece-92c9-ab54aa2d4285

static let clientId = "<client-id>"

Client secret - copy this value from Bot Builder SDK Settings ex. Wibn3ULagYyq0J10LCndswYycHGLuIWbwHvTRSfLwhs=

static let clientSecret = "<client-secret>"

User identity - this should represent the subject for JWT token that could be an email or phone number in case of known user. In case of anonymous user, this can be a randomly generated unique id.

static let identity = "<>"

Bot name - copy this value from Bot Builder -> Channels -> Web/Mobile SDK config ex. "Demo Bot"

static let chatBotName = "<bot-name>"

Bot Id - copy this value from Bot Builder -> Channels -> Web/Mobile SDK config ex. st-acecd91f-b009-5f3f-9c15-7249186d827d

static let botId = "<bot-id>"

BOT_SERVER URL- replace it with your server URL, if required

static let BOT_SERVER = "";

Anonymous user - if not anonymous, assign same identity (such as email or phone number) while making a connection

static bool isAnonymous = false; 

JWT_SERVER URL - specify the server URL for JWT token generation. This token is used to authorize the SDK client. Refer to documentation on how to setup the JWT server for token generation - e.g.

static let JWT_SERVER = "<jwt-token-server-url>";

Running the Demo app

a. Using Cocoa Pods

* Download or clone the repository.
* Run "pod install" in the Examples/CocoapodsDemo project folder.
* Open Examples/CocoapodsDemo/KoreBotSDKDemo.xcworkspace in Xcode.
* Run the in xcode

b. Using Carthage

* Download or clone the repository.
* Run "carthage update --platform iOS" in the Examples/CarthageDemo project folder.
* Open Examples/CarthageDemo/KoreBotSDKDemo.xcodeproj in Xcode.
* Run the in Xcode

Integrating into your app

1. Setup KoreBotSDK

a. Using CocoaPods
Add the following to your Podfile:
pod 'KoreBotSDK'

Or to get latest pod changes use:
pod 'KoreBotSDK', :git => '’

Run pod install in your project folder.
b. Using Carthage
Add the following to your Cartfile:
github "Koredotcom/iOS-kore-sdk" "master"

Run "carthage update --platform iOS" in your project folder.

2. Initializing the Bot client

import KoreBotSDK
let botInfo: NSDictionary = ["chatBot":"<bot-name>", "taskBotId":"<bot-identifier>"]
let botClient: BotClient = BotClient(botInfoParameters: botInfo)

3. JWT generation

a. You need to have secure token service hosted in your environment which returns the JWT token.
b. Generate JWT in your enviornment.

To integrate jwt signing in code refer to KoreBotSDKDemo App. -

NOTE: Please refer about JWT signing and verification at -

4. Connect with JWT

botClient.connectWithJwToken(jwToken, success: { (client) in
    // listen to RTM events

}, failure: { (error) in

5. Send message

botClient.sendMessage("Tweet hello", options: [])

6. Listen to events

self.botClient.onMessage = { [weak self] (object) in
	//"object" type as "BotMessageModel"
self.botClient.onMessageAck = { (ack) in
	//"ack" type as "Ack"
self.botClient.connectionDidClose = { (code, reason) in
	//"code" type as "Int", "reason" type as "String"
self.botClient.connectionDidFailWithError = { (error) in
	//"error" type as "NSError"

7. Subscribe to push notifications

self.botClient.subscribeToNotifications(deviceToken, success: { (staus) in
    // do something
}, failure: { (error) in

8. Unsubscribe to push notifications

self.botClient.unsubscribeToNotifications(deviceToken, success: { (staus) in
    // do something
}, failure: { (error) in

9. Example

self.botClient.connectWithJwToken(jwtToken, success: { (client) in
    client.connectionDidOpen = { () in
    client.connectionReady = { () in
    client.connectionDidClose = { (code) in
    client.connectionDidFailWithError = { (error) in
    client.onMessage = { (object) in
    client.onMessageAck = { (ack) in
}, failure: { (error) in

10. getHistory - fetches all the history that the bot has previously based on last messageId whenever the bot is reconnected.

self.botClient.getHistory(offset: 0, success: { (responseObj) in
    // do something
}, failure: { (error) in
