Facebook Messenger Access

The app being built will not be accessible publically, neither would Facebook approve an application without getting all the necessary details. As such, a Facebook user will not be able to interact with the bot unless explictly configured as a test user. To be able to share the link to facebook page so that judging panel can see this in action, would you be providing a facebook user that would be setup for this purpose that can be added to the app?

    +1, I have same doubt. How do we share facebook bot access with judges ? Should we create a dummy facebook account and add it as tester ?

    Stefanie should probably provide a test account that everyone can add as a tester for the bot. They are doing the same for Slack and GitHub invites. Would work easiest that way.

    Hey Everyone,

    With @sameer's help, we were able to successfully test a solution. If you need to share your messenger bot that isn't public yet, add my Facebook ID: stef.devpost.1 as a tester role. Then on your submission form, include a link in your testing instructions to the Facebook page where I can chat with the bot. If you want to try this out ahead of the deadline, feel free to email me at stefanie (at) devpost . com.

    I hope this is helpful and thank you Sameer!

    Best,
    Stefanie
