Adding “bots” entry in Microsoft App Manifest: “A value without a type name was found” RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, hope this is the right forum.

    I am using the online app manifest editor (portal.azure.com/#blade/Microsoft_AAD_RegisteredApps/ApplicationMenuBlade/Manifest/appId/...) to add a custom bot to my app manifest. I am adding this part to the JSON:

    "bots": [
      "botId": "[same-string-as-in-field-appId]",
      "scopes": [ "team", "personal", "groupchat" ]

    When I try to save the manifest though, I get:

    "Failed to update [...] application. Error detail: A value without a type name was found and no expected type is available. When the model is specified, each value in the payload must have a type which can be either specified in the payload, explicitly by the caller or implicitly inferred from the parent value. [k+sF5]"

    I assume this is due to a schema versioning issue but I don't know how to fix it.
