  1. There should be an unStrcitFilter and a strictFilter to bring back the default value if no metadata is found on the Q and A

    Besides the logical OR operator for the api and strictFilter there should be an option for an unStrictFilter meaning if it finds the metadata request then it will use that filter and if not it will bring back the default answer.

    Currently our API we our building will work like I am describing because things happen in a general sense... Every call can't be ultra specific to the API that is not feasible. However, it would be great along with the logical OR operator to be included in the API

  2. The region limitation for the QnA maker does not make sense at all

    Currently I can't use the QnA service at my project because of a region restriction (I can't deploy applications in west us)

    Such a powerfull tool wasted here because a minor restriction!

    There is any rational behind this region limitation?

  5. Feedback

    Is there a way to add feedback function when a chat ends or there's a certain keyword to trigger the feedback prompt? (like "Thanks"). Then have the feedback feed into azure and then create a query to pull the feedback table and information.

  6. QnAMaker service region is set to West US as default

    We've faced this issue while we're creating QnaMaker Service on Azure portal into a resource group when we have a location restricted resource group policy on Azure.

    We're looking for only hosting services in North Europe or West Europe and Qna maker throws an error because of it's trying to create "QnAMaker Cognitive Service" to be hosted in West US.

    Due to subscription limitation we can not create a resource group supporting West US region, our subscription only requires Europe based regions.

    Please can you give an ability to QnAMaker Cognitive Service to pick location as well?

  8. Enable Import of Topics from Virtual Agent (PVA) to QnA maker

    Enable existing Topics from Virtual Agent (PVA) to be processed by QnA Maker.
    We have 180 topics and now we are told we will focus on QnA maker :( Looks like a load of work!

    Alternative
    What is the best practice on moving PVA topics to QnA maker?

  9. Azure Query

    Is there a query to get the question the user asked, when the bot answered with the string 'DefaultCardNoMatchResponse' (in QnAMakerBaseDialog.cs)?

    I know we are able to get ones where the bot wasn't able to answer the question, but I want one that shows the question when user selects "none of the above" when the cards show "Did you mean..."

  10. CSV format support for input data

    I have a request from a customer to support the CSV format, not just JSON as the Content-Type of the REST API.
    Any plans to support csv format in the future?

  11. Auto language translation

    It will be perfect if it can understands the questions in whichever language, then find the answers from the KB and return with the 'asked' language, optionally combine the answers in default language.

    For example, I have KB in English, if the ask is in Japanese, it can understand and find the answer from the KB and return the answer in Japanese and the English (bilingual answer).

    This will help a lot for preparing the multilingual KB when the chatbot is globally deployed.

  12. The standard version only allows 3 transaction per second and 100 transaction per minute

    How does the pricing work out? Can I have 20 knowledge base, each with 20 managed document and the pricing is still 10$ with 3 transactions per second. Or the pricing is based on 1 knowledge base?

  13. Creation Date Timestamp for QnA Pairs

    In order to run reporting and analytics on the Knowledgebase the creation and update timestamp is meaningful.
    At least in the XLS download function this data should be exposed.

  16. Add support for AzDO work items as data source

    We use a AzDO kanban board for consultancy support (cloud competence center department) and we get a lot of similar questions from different departments.
    We've arranged a FAQ etc., but you'd need to update it and refer to it manually. It'd be nice to have some learning system doing it automatically from the work items (filtering out some Description parts as a question and Comment as an answer).

  17. knowledge base

    When I enter keywords to search, the relevant QnA pairs return, but my keywords are not highlighted, making it hard to know why the pairs are shown in the search results.

    To make it easy to see what a QnA pair is about, I often modify the top question in my question list so that the first column will update accordingly. However, after I click Save and Train, the top question kept reverting back to the previous text before my edits.

  20. "Sign out" button should use hand cursor

    Repro steps:
    1. Click the profile button in the upper right corner
    2. Hover over "Sign out" button
    3. Observe that it uses a text-selection cursor instead of a hand cursor

    Tested in Chrome and Edge on Windows 10
