Hi @siripurapurahul,

Will this text file be uploaded to the bot in a user conversation?

HI @yogaramya.mendu

This is our actual requirement where there will be a json input file in some of the respository like google cloud here the bot need to read the contents in the json file and should response according to the contents in json.

Lets say suppose a json contains two buttons in the starting it should be displayed as welcome buttons to the user now based on the user selection on the buttons the flow should go as per given in the json for this requirement i am giving a sample json file to you.

“type”: “template”,
“template_type”: “button”,
“text”: “What do you want to do next?”,
“type”: “web_url”,
“title”: “Show Website”,
“url”: “
“type”: “postback”,
“title”: “Start Chatting”,
As this json is showing us two buttons its should display the two buttons based on the button click we should capture the input and based on the input it should redirect to corresponding node of the json and the flow should continue If it is possible in our Can you please help me out at the earliest possible.

Thank you @siripurapurahul

I have a similar question. If any file(xlsx) is uploaded in botbuilder, then is it possible to read the contents of the uploaded file within bot builder probably using javascript only. Write now I use botkit to switch to python which can read/process files using pandas, but i want to avoid the dependency on botkit. So is there way that bot builder can perform this activity?
