Adding a Heroku Bot

Kore.ai provides integration for a built-in Heroku Bot that you can use to display message notifications and execute tasks directly from the Kore.ai application. To use the Heroku Bot, you just need to add the Bot to your Kore.ai account, and then configure the settings for the Bot, such as authentication to access Heroku, and the notification messages that you want. This topic describes the Heroku built-in Bot for Kore.ai. For more information about other Kore.ai Bots, see Adding Bots.

After you are connected, you can perform tasks for Heroku directly from the Kore.ai application and setup message notifications to get notified in the Kore.ai application when an event occurs in Heroku.

The following table describes Heroku tasks that you can integrate with Kore.ai.

  • select an Application
  • optionally customize the Task Name
