Chatbot Framework requires QnA Subscription Key

KA 76 Reputation points

As per Microsoft announcement (here) no new QnA Maker resources can be created post 1st October 2022.
Yet, the Bot Framework Composer (v2.1.2) still requires a QnA Maker Subscription Key to work :-( (see screenshot below)

How can I use the Bot Framework Composer with Azure Cognitive Service for Language? I already have a Knowledge Base created using the Language Studio.

    @KA You should be able to deploy your custom question answering project or KB from language studio and this should provide an option to Get the prediction URL, this will list the key for your resource. This key is basically the language resource subscription key.


    You can substitute this value and check if the newer language resource key which contains the Q&A feature works with your bot framework composer bot.
