/*

More Advanced Bot Example

Under the directory examples/luisai_bot, there is more advanced example based on Microsoft's:

  1. botbuilder framework
  2. Luis AI

In the file README.md you will find a useful information for running this example.

Important issues

  1. It's important to register to the sdk errors.
  2. A LoginError is triggered in case that the bot failed to login to LiveEngage. In case that the LoginError is due to "password expired", a new password should be set in LiveEngage and used while initiating an agent-sdk instance.
  3. In order to use transferToSkill method a valid skill id should be used.
    The list of skill ids can be obtained by a csv export inside the LiveEngage console (users->skills)
