Publishing Cortana Skills Just Got Easier

You can now publish your skills directly through Cortana’s channel configuration panel in Microsoft Azure portal! Manage how you self-publish, publish to groups for testing, and publish the skill to the world.


Connecting Cortana to the Web App bot

First, connect the Cortana channel to the bot




Configuring the Cortana channel

Then configure the Cortana channel to publish the skill to yourself (default settings), to group (test group settings), or to world (world settings)




Other Changes


Screenshots are no longer required for certification purposes in publishing to the world.
