Configuring a chatbot to work with a communication channel

You must configure BMC Helix Chatbot or a chatbot for your application so that your application can work with different user communication channels such as Slack, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business on-premises, and SMS, which uses Twilio.

For example, you might want to provide Short Message Service (SMS) chatbot conversation facility to your application users. To provide the SMS facility, you must configure your chatbot to work with Twilio so that your application users can interact with a chatbot by sending text messages through their mobile devices.

You can also use more than one communication channel in an application, such as Microsoft Teams and Twilio to enable conversation through SMS.

This section provides information about how to configure your chatbot to work with the supported communication channels:
