Business value

Many bots need to perform pre- or post-message processing logic to meet key business requirements. For instance, each message may need to be added to a central audit trail or scanned for sensitive PII which needs to be redacted before being processed and stored in analytics.

Feature details

Advanced triggering for Power Virtual Agents bots provides a powerful extensibility point enabling bot authors to add processing logic at key events within a bot, such as when a message is received and sent. A topic can now be triggered by events, enabling an author to leverage connectors, Power Fx expressions, or any other node type, ensuring key extensibility needs can be met.
