Issue with Topic Redirect

Posted on by 13

I have topic called CreateMessage which uses Create Generative answers node to create a message based on a users request.

If this topic is triggered directly. The node creates a message as expected.

 

However, there is another topic that asks the user what they want to do. It gives them options

1.Create Message 2. Create Detailed Message 

 

When they select option Create message they are redirected to topic CreateMessage. It does execute nodes in this topic to request user input but does not give a response using the Create Generative answers. It just moves on to the next step.

 

Do we know what could be causing this? Is there a node we could add to wait until Create Generative answers node completes its task before moving to the next node.

    What does your generative answer node uses as input? If it’s activity.text then with your redirect it will be "Create message", which is the last message sent by the user

    Thank you for the response @willM . That helps. However, then the topic cannot be triggered by phrases anymore. But makes sense.

    I've experienced something similar, what I did to fix the issue was change the Topic trigger type to redirect instead of the default (Phrases/Id Intent)

    You could also add a condition to each Trigger via the properties, which could be used in a multitude of methods

    @adilei : Possible to review the YAML?

    Hi, I am not using the conversational boosting topic. Instead, On conversation start is redirected to a main topic controller. Below is the YAML for the main topic controller. Based on the option selected. This then redirects to different topics which have the GenAnswers node. Will attach the YAML for the redirected topic in the next comment.

     

    kind: AdaptiveDialog beginDialog: kind: OnRecognizedIntent id: main intent: {} actions: - kind: Question id: question_T3NqcF interruptionPolicy: allowInterruption: true interruptionTopicListFilter: kind: IncludeSelectedTopics allowedInterruptTopics: - cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.topic.StartOver - cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.topic.PowerMessageCopy - cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.topic.PowerMessage alwaysPrompt: true variable: init:Topic.MainAction prompt: What would you like to do today? entity: kind: ClosedListEntityReference entityId: cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.entity.Actions selectedItems: - obfius - DxihsK - kind: ConditionGroup id: conditionGroup_Urec4N conditions: - id: conditionItem_trP2TV condition: =Topic.MainAction = 'cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.entity.Actions'.obfius actions: - kind: BeginDialog id: srPM9r dialog: cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.topic.PowerMessage - id: conditionItem_fBdY3n condition: =Topic.MainAction = 'cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.entity.Actions'.DxihsK actions: - kind: BeginDialog id: MoECdf dialog: cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.topic.PowerMessageCopy - id: conditionItem_50U6Xv condition: =Topic.MainAction = 'cr75d_salesCoPilot3pdQYg.entity.Actions'.ImtQh8 - kind: GotoAction id: KTfBJk actionId: question_T3NqcF;

    Why are you redirecting post response from Gen Answers? Can you provide a YAML for your conversational boosting topic?

    Using GenAnswers I am making the copilot look at a couple of information resources (Bing custom search) and create a message based on that information. It works fine independently but if I have a topic redirect after gen answers , it skips giving the answer and executes the topic redirect.

    Can you elaborate a little on what functionality you are hoping to provide with Gen Answers?
