How do I make my custom copilot created in Azure AI Studio available in M365 Copilot ?

Brass Contributor

I have created a custom Copilot in https://ai.azure.com/
I am looking for a way to make this available as a plugin in our M365 Copilot (Teams chat is fine to start with)

Is Copilot-Studio the way to go or are there alternatives?

Copilot Studio is the way to go. In Azure AI Studio, you can create a PVA (previous name of Copilot Studio).

If you want to extend M365 Copilot, you have to use either a Teams Message extensions, a Graph connector or use Copilot Studio.
David, can you provide more details?
I could extend Copilot with a Message Extension, but Copilot does not "SEE" a Vertical created using a graph connector. I can search on office.com but it's not working on Copilot.

Also, I've posted a question regarding Copilot Studio... I don't how to see the changes on Copilot by Teams.

I know is all brand new...

I am not sure what the connection is, how are Azure AI studio and Copilot Studio connected?
Is it more than any other API I can call from a messages extension?

@cdantiags either it's a Teams message extension or a Graph connector. What did you exactly build? I don't have any experiences with the Graph connector.

If you build a Teams message extension, you should see it in the "M365 Chat" chat in Teams (in the Copilot chat it only appears in the very recent version of Teams). Here you can activate the plugin. 

1. When you type "-developer" in the chat window you get some debug information. You will see if your query triggers the plugin.

2. It's a good practice to start a new chat for every test by typing "new chat"  

3. Try very simple prompts like "[pluginname] [parameter]".
