Post an idea
Upvote ideas that matter most to you
Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
I would like to be able to maintain context and history in my chat-application that is using the skill versioning in Watson Assistant. My chat-app is working with the development-version of the Skill. But when I assign the Assistant any other version than the development version, it stops working.
Here is my current solution that stops working when I change Skill-version:
Hi, I am upgrading our node.js-app that runs our Watson Assistant chatbot from API v1 to v2. The primary reason for this upgrade is to be able to use versioning of Skills for our customers. My solution logic is:
- I use v2 to send and get message for ASSISTANT_ID and SESSION_ID.
- Then I have to use v1 to get all old messages from a certain WORKSPACE_ID. Here i use the listlogs method. (Is necessary when changing tab and refreshing page to keep history and context in the chat.)
- ThenI filter on a specific SESSION_ID to get the correct old messages in listlogs.
Note: Everything in this logic is working fine when the the Development of my Skill is assigned to my Assistant. Until the stage when I assign my assistant a new version other than the developement version
I sent this info as a ticket to IBM support and got the following answer:
"I have discussed with the development and confirm that the session id will be changed when you refresh the browser or change the tab. The reason for the difference between the development version and the other versions are the api's.. We need a logs api for versions or at the assistant level to achieve your request.. Please submit an enhancement request for this api change and development will look into it"
I Hope this was a clear description.
Who would benefit from this IDEA?
Everyone that would like to use Skill versioning and maintain context between tabs or when refreshing
