Skype for Business Online – Send and receive messages using UCWA
I’m trying to build a BOT like service for “Skype Business Online”. As of now the Microsoft BOT Framework does not have the out of the box channel for this. Searching the internet, I found the following nice workaround to tackle such a problem using the Lync Server 2013 SDK.
But in my case I have ” Skype Online for Business ” Office365 where the Lync Server 2013 SDK is not supported.
The UCWA web API seems to be available for ” Skype For Business Online “. Using this API, I want to receive IM and forward this to my existing BOT using the DirectLine API . And finally I want to answer the skype user with the response from the DirectLine API.
