How to choose a bot template when creating a bot using Azure Web App Bot?

Copper Contributor

I'm trying to create a bot using the Azure Portal, trying to follow some tutorials from the documentation. Specifically, these:

When I got to the Azure portal and try to create a Web App Bot however, I am unable to choose a template. It seems to assume I want to create a QnA Bot, which is not the case. I've been doing tutorials and research for a few days; I'm pretty sure I recall this was not the case as of yesterday.

Did something get updated? Is using the Visual Studio template my only option now? I was hoping to use VS Code for the development once I downloaded the basic bot template.
