  • Let’s start by creating a new bot, pick a name you like.
  • To create the URL of you bot, create a webhook. That will create a tunnel from your bot to Bot Connector. We’re using a ngrok webhook, but you can use any kind of webhook you like.
  • if you don’t have ngrok, check this out to get started.
