Upgrading to LUIS Connections

LUIS Intent Vectors have been upgraded to use a new connection object when connecting to your LUIS resource. This closely matches how these resources exist in Azure and provides a comprehensive connection to your LUIS Apps.

To upgrade your Intent Vectors to use the new LUIS Connections, first create a new Connection. Once created, navigate to your Intent Vector and you will see an Upgrade section above the API keys section. Click Select Connection next to Upgrade Available, select your connection and click Upgrade Intent Vector.


LUIS Intent Vectors provide a robust and configurable connection between your trained LUIS models and Flow Skills. Intent Vectors simplify the work it takes to develop the dialog required to fulfill an intent by mapping LUIS entities to configured entities in AtBot. This allows your bots to automate any required dialog with the user to capture missing entities when an intent is used.
