Export and import of Power Virtual Agents bots using solutions

We recently announced the public preview of export and import of Power Virtual Agents bots using solutions. With this ability, administrators can now easily manage the chatbot’s lifecycle to address change control, governance, data residency, and latency requirements.

Enterprise organizations can use different environments for different purposes, or employ ring-deployment methodologies. For example, they might have a specific environment where they test and validate bots, another environment where they test bots for only a subset of users, and a final production environment where they share bots with their customers and end-users.

You use solutions to export bots from one environment and import them into another. The solution acts as a “carrier” for the bots, and you can import multiple bots in one solution. Here is a quick look at how you can move a bot across the environments. Watch this short video to learn how you can export and import a bot across environments.



To learn how to use export and import bots using solutions, see documentation here.
