In this article I will be explaining about triggering the PCS application from the chatbot.
Many of us might have known about triggering the PCS integrations from the OICS or VBCS.
Have you ever done it from chatbots?
Let’s build a dummy process application in first place which we want to trigger from the chatbot.
The main purpose of this would be to notify the user over the mail with the details that he had filled in the form.
In this case I have created a message-based process and named it as chatbot.
Create a basic form with two fields UserID and IntegrationName.

Now go to the flow section of the ODA and drop the rest service section and drop action call REST service and select the endpoint from the dropdown. Once done you should be able to see the complete details of the endpoint you have provided in the configuration step.
Let’s test the Chatbot we had built so far.
As you could see the chatbot replied with message saying process request has been raised along with the ID.
Now, if we check our process tasks, we would be able to see our request as below:
I you are wondering how I’ve designed the chat with replies.
