MessageId undefined when creating a message

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

I just found a weird behavior that I believe to be a bug.

 

When using the Connector API, I can create a message with this kind of Axios config :

 

 

{
      method: "POST",
      headers: { Authorization: botBearerToken },
      url: `${connectorApiBaseURI}/v3/conversations/${conversationId}/activities`,
      data: {
        type: "message",
        text: "random text message",
        inputHint: "acceptingInput",
      },
}

 

 


I can retrieve the activity/message id I just created in the response body.

 

But if I add some attachments to the message, the message with its attachments is properly created in Teams but the id in the response body is undefined. This is a plague for my app, as the message Id is mandatory to update the message afterwards when necessary.

 

Here is the Axios config in this case :

 

 

{
      method: "POST",
      headers: { Authorization: botBearerToken },
      url: `${connectorApiBaseURI}/v3/conversations/${conversationId}/activities`,
      data: {
        type: "message",
        text: "random text message",
        inputHint: "acceptingInput",
        attachmentLayout: "list",
        attachments: [...],
      },
}

 

 

 

My request is to have the message/activity Id in the response body reliably when the message/activity creation succeeds.

any update ?

@GuillaumeStD - We tried sending message with an attachment using graph explorer and through a bot. In both the cases we can see below in the response.

@Meghana-MSFT  Thanks for the response.

Unfortunately I can't use Graph API because I need to send messages as my bot and Graph API doesn't support that as stated in MS documentation.

I have 2 questions :
- Can you send the detailed request that resulted in this bot response ?
- You tried sending the message "through a bot", is it via a bot SDK like this one or the Connector API directly ?

@GuillaumeStD - 

- I used this sample to send attachment to a bot - https://github.com/microsoft/BotBuilder-Samples/tree/main/samples/csharp_dotnetcore/56.teams-file-up....
- I used bot not connector API.

Could you please clarify what your bot and Graph API do not support, your exact requirement? Thank you.

Hi @Meghana-MSFT , thanks for your response.

- I use nodeJS, so I have tried with this sample, but it has the same issue. The context.

sendActivity() method doesn't return the created activity ID when the created activity contains attachments : https://github.com/microsoft/BotBuilder-Samples/tree/main/samples/javascript_nodejs/56.teams-file-up...

- For your information, bot sdk uses the Connector API under the hood, so by using the bot sdk, we are using the Connector API.

=> Graph API doesn't support sending message as a bot as stated in its docs here (only delegated permissions work, not application permissions) : https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/chat-post-messages?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http#permiss...
Thank you for confirming, we will check and update you.

@Meghana-MSFT any update so far ?

@GuillaumeStD - We did setup the nodejs sample and saw that https://github.com/microsoft/BotBuilder-Samples/blob/b578bbe1127827db86baba670cd0f81e1ae359fb/sample... does not return anything when attachment is uploaded using below option.

@Meghana-MSFT Exactly, but it should return its message/activity ID since it was posted successfully. Can you request this fix to the Microsoft dev team working on it ?

We are raising a bug for this issue, we will keep you posted on the updates.
