What’s New?

The new features introduced in the API version 5 are:

  • The bot REST API endpoints now follow a RESTful and more intuitive structure. They make the requests more lightweight. The endpoints are:
    • Start a new chat session
    • Continue an existing chat session
    • End an existing chat session
  • The bot and chat session IDs are now path parameters instead of request body parameters.
  • Support rich and structured content in the bot responses.
  • Include intents and entities in the API responses.
  • Added an endpoint to check the API’s health.
  • HATEOS compliant enabling programmatic discovery of linked resources.
