What I'm having hard time understanding is how I could use for example Postman to communicate with the bot. End Get Request Stream(IAsync Result async Result, Transport Context& context) at System.
If I were to open my own api as you mentioned, would it be possible to just pass message objects to a rest endpoint?
Then of course there are a variety of apps outside of the realms of existing messenger apps.
One of the most regularly cited examples of a ‘good chatbot’ is Poncho.
Direct Line is intended to power this and we're working on a new version that will preserve the message as it passes through the channel.
If you are improving the direct line API, can I request there is a property in the json response which can be populated with custom metadata?
