Copilot Studio Classic Chatbot won't publish

Posted on by 19


We have a classic chatbot that was working well until recently when it can no longer publish.  When clicking on the Publish button, nothing happens.  The last time we were able to publish the bot successfully was two weeks ago.  We have tried signing out/in, using private browser, and different browsers - none works.  Any suggestions on how to resolve this?  The other chatbot in our copilot studio is a modern version and publishing works just fine so this issue is affecting classic chatbot only.

    I'm using the version of Copilot Studios on teams and don't see a "channel" button at the top of the screen.

    I had the same issue
    The publish button in the 'older' classic bot start window is indead not working.
    In the classic bot you have to go to the menu channels (kanalen) and there you can publish.
