Hi, i developed a simple chat bot using rasa and i integrated it to slack using ngrok.
i trained my bot, then i started my actions server and then i started ngrok server and then i ran my run_app.py file which handle_channels.
In my slack, i used the url given by ngrok and in event subscriptions under Request URL it shows my url is Verified.
This is my channel handle code
My app name in slack is samplebot. When i talk to my bot, it wont reply anything. But my ngrok console shows me
POST /webhooks/slack/webhook 200 OK status
Is it possible that your bot is predicting
action_listen? Does it respond to exactly the same user input locally?
@j.mosig yeah, it works fine locally.
Do i need to add
await in the beginning of the
Btw i tried to run
await agent.handle_text("hi") to make sure if the agent is working and it gives me that await is not a valid syntax.
@erohmensing Do you have an idea?
Hi @dushandevinda. Did you subscribe your bot to any events on slack configuration page?
@Juste yes, i did subscribe to those events. (
@dushandevinda can i ask why you are running slack in custom python code instead of via
rasa run --connector slack --port 5004
i was watching a tutorial and thats why i made that custom python code. Anyways, thanks a lot for the time you guys took to reply me. I made my own ui and i used rasa webhooks to work with my UI and now its working fine. Thanks a lot @erohmensing
No worries @dushandevinda. Things move fast here at Rasa and a lot of video tutorials are outdated. Glad you got it working – super cool that you used your own UI!
I am also struggling to get a response from Slack even though ngrok displays POST /webhooks/slack/webhook 200 OK
Is there a way to debug the response from Slack?
Everything works fine when I use rasa shell
This is the output from debugging. Rasa seems to processing the message sent via Slack but the message doesn’t seem to return a reponse.
Hi @kmkamoto. Did you figure out where it went wrong? I have the same error as you at the moment. I have just using the basic rasa init bot.
@zaidalvi can you remove the entire slack_channel argument and try again? i.e.
as the entire endpoint configuration?
Hi @erohmensing thank you for taking out the time to help. So I tried removing the slack channel from the endpoint credentials file but the issue is still the same.
For an overview I use the command:
rasa run which gives me the following:
I run ngrok on 5005 which gives me this:
I use the “http” link from that server and provide that in my endpoint file:
The I run the server again in a new terminal (without closing either two previous ones) on the port 5002 using the following command:
=> rasa run --port 5002 --connector slack --credentials credentials.yml --endpoints endpoints.yml --log-file out.log --cors * --enable-api --debug -m models
which gives me this:
My Event Subscriptions are these:
Scopes in OAuth&Permissions:
Incoming Webhooks are disabled:
When I talk to my bot on Slack this is the output:
My messages to my bot on slack:
I don’t understand why this happening.
I have also tried removing every thing else from my endpoints file as well. @erohmensing
I’m with the same problem, did you found the solution?
