Can't save modified details ChatBot

Posted on by

hello everyone,

My problem is fast, I have created and published a ChatBot, everything works fine. But I'm trying to "edit details" like icon, short and long description, when I click save, Teams keep "saving your changes..."

I'm wondering if admin permissions are needed or if the functionality is broken.

    Thank you @SDJM  for the update. We are working on a fix for the default developer name string being longer than 32 chars.

    Hello everyone, we found the problem. So I'm posting it hoping it might help someone.


    We checked the network error using the google chrome developer tool. And we found that the DeveloperName field, its default value ("Con tecnología de Power Virtual Agents") in Spanish is greater than 32 characters. So we changed that field to a value with less than 32 characters and everything worked fine.

    @micchow Yeah, I'm stuck on the 'saving your settings' spinner. I tried the same process in the Teams browser and got 2 errors in the console.


    main.927ca81e.js:2 PUT 400



    main.927ca81e.js:2 Uncaught (in promise) Error: An unexpected server error occurred.

    Do you have any idea what's going on?

    @SDJM , I am unable to reproduce the issue, the information is being saved correctly. To answer your question, you should be able to save the detail changes as the bot owner without needing to be an admin. Could you clarify the issue a bit more? Are you stuck on the spinner 'saving your settings'?


    If the issue persists, please DM me with your tenant ID and bot ID for us to open a ticket on investigation.

    Hi @SDJM,


    Have you tried the same editing experience from the browser instead of the Teams client?


    1. Go to in a browser

    2. Open the Power Virtual Agents app

    3. Try editing your bot details from there


    Benefit of this test is also that you could open your developer toolbar on the Network monitor tab and see if maybe one of the requests is failing.


    Alternatively, contact Microsoft Support about this. They might be able to help you out with troubleshooting:
