Subscribing to a Smart Bot

After an enterprise and the Kore.ai Sales Team determined requirements, and then Kore.ai develops the custom Smart Bot, the Smart Bot is enabled for your enterprise and available in Bot Builder to set up. Once you subscribe to the Smart Bot and complete the setup, all of the preconfigured tasks are available and ready for publishing, just as you would publish any other Bot using Bot Builder. This topic describes how to complete the setup for a Smart Bot.

Setup Process for a Smart Bot

To setup a Smart Bot to deploy and enable for end-users, you just need to complete the following four steps.

  1. Enter the Bot basic settings.
  2. Configure channels for the Smart Bot.
  3. Publish the Smart Bot to the enterprise.
  4. The Bot Admin approves and deploys the Smart Bot to end-users.

Setting Up a Smart Bot

When Kore.ai adds a Smart Bot to your enterprise, your developers can see the Smart Bot in Bot Builder listed as any other Bot. In the following illustration, the Smart C Bot is added and needs to have the enterprise subscription completed. To begin the setup, select the Smart Bot to subscribe to, and then click Setup Bot as shown in the following illustration.

Next Steps

Kore.ai will automatically update and upgrade your Smart Bot tasks when needed. You only need to publish the updates. However, you may want to customize the tasks from Kore.ai. To customize a task, you will need to unlock the task and take ownership for any customizations to the task. For more information, see Customizing a Smart Bot.
