Imagine having a personal Office 365 assistant in your daily job routine, which can help you provide all information that you need, like for example who is your manager, scheduling a meeting, displaying and updating your profile picture or list the Microsoft Teams where you are involved and so on.
These are only a few samples of business use cases but just think of the use of Microsoft Graph API that we have really great capabilities to leverage and interesting scenarios that come out.
Starting from this assumption, I decided to develop a proof of concept of Bot that we can also consider as a get started, the most important thing of this concept is that the Bot should be able to recognize the user it is communicating with.
Let’s summarize every step in order to build this scenario:
- Create a Bot on Azure (Node.js)
- Host the Bot on Azure

- Test it locally with Bot framework emulator or directly on Teams
This is the final result:
