Business value

A broad range of authoring personas can now author low-code expressions to perform system integration and data management tasks that previously required software engineers. For example, connectors can be invoked directly, and data returned can be manipulated to retrieve key information.

Feature details

Expression authoring is a key capability for any bot in order to implement more sophisticated logic. For example, you can now author expressions to perform data validation or control looping logic. In addition, you can better manipulate data, performing operations on variables (for example, adding a percentage). By retrieving data from connectors, you can, for example, retrieve data from a JSON object or array.
