How to make a bot a teams app

Zhu, Zihan 41 Reputation points


I made a normal bot by using Microsoft Bot Framework and has deployed it to the azure portal. I tried to channel the bot to teams, which worked but the bot couldn’t receive attachments. How can I make it do so?
Also, I noticed that general bots are a bit different from teams bots according to the samples from GitHub, for example, general bots extend ActivityHandler but teams bots extend TeamsActivityHandler. So how can I turn my bot to a teams app? Do I need to alter the code of the bot I made a lot?

Thank you.
