Power virtual agent publish button disabled

Posted on by 17
Hii Community!
I have created a chatbot in PVA, and I want to publish it so I can test it. This chatbot gets the information from my Sharepoint list using Power Automate.
Once I created the chatbot I wanted to publish. But the publish icon is greyed out. It is showing the below error:
You've boosted your conversational coverage, a feature that blocks publishing. Change your settings or contact your administrator to publish this copilot.

Also, I have attached the screenshot, please check and tell me any features i need to disable or enable. I am not getting it, as I am new to PVA.

    Hi @HenryJammes 


    I am getting the same error. I don't see the checkbox for "Use generative answers" anymore. I could see it just last week. Seems like the UI has been updated recently.

    Please let me know where I can disable conversational coverage in the latest version/UI of Copilot Studio.


    Thanks in advance!

    Hi @Sonu123 


    This is because your organization blocks publishing bots that have generative AI capabilities.

    You can either:

    1. Uncheck "Use generative answers" in the "Generative AI" settings, and save.
    2. Request a Power Platform or tenant administrator to enable the "publish bots with AI features" setting: Security and governance in Copilot Studio - Microsoft Copilot Studio | Microsoft Learn
