Select General Public if the bot is for public use for both managed and unmanaged users in your domain. Bot assignments are not required and when the Bots Admin deploys the bot, it is available for use by all domain users. Use this option to make a bot widely available for all user types.
Select Enterprise Users if the bot is for managed users only in a domain, for example, for your employees or paid customers. After the Bots Admin approves and deploys this bot, it is not available to any managed users unless explicitly assigned by the Bots Admin. Use this bot when you want to control which managed users in your domain can access and setup this bot on their devices.
Once Target Audience is defined and saved, you cannot change them.
|The Bot Builder platform no longer supports Welcome Message. If you have defined a Welcome Message in previous versions of the platform, the upgraded version automatically creates a corresponding Welcome event and On Connect event to ensure backward compatibility. Learn more.|
To save the Bot settings, click Save. The < Bot Name > updated successfully message is displayed.
If you are publishing this Bot to the Bot Store, you must also define additional settings in the Bot Store section. For more information, see Bot Store Settings.
