How do I get my teams bot to authenticate to a web service

Occasional Contributor

I have a teams bot which I want to use as an interface for my service stack webservice however the token I have access to is not being accepted by the web service. 


I followed the "AAD SSO for tabs and message extension" tutorial to set up my Azure instance and get a basic bot up and running. When I modified the query handler to send a request to a web service with the token provided it is responding with a login page.


This is the code that I added to the Simple Graph Client in a new method which passes in what the user types as query


HttpWebRequest request = (HttpWebRequest)WebRequest.Create("https://<my website>/api/ws/v1/search?query=" + query);
request.Headers.Add("Authorization", "Bearer " + _token);
request.Method = "GET";

request.AutomaticDecompression = DecompressionMethods.GZip | DecompressionMethods.Deflate;

using (System.Net.HttpWebResponse response = (HttpWebResponse)request.GetResponse())
using (Stream stream = response.GetResponseStream())
using (StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(stream))
    return reader.ReadToEnd();



Do I need to make use of a shared certificate? or is there some additional configuration that I have missed which is necessary to make this situation work?

@Sayali-MSFT We managed to get our integration working by modifying our oath connection setting from api://<guid> to api://<guid>/access_as_user


The only thing we are missing now is that our jwt token appears to be missing the email address associated with the user.

@BazVanDenDungen-When a user asks the bot to do something that requires the bot to have the user logged in, the bot can use an OAuthPrompt to initiate retrieving a token for a given connection.When you start an OAuth prompt, it waits for a token response event, from which it will retrieve the user's token.
