I am trying to build just a simple echo BOT using Node.js with Microsoft builder. I have tested it locally using the BOT emulator. To test it on the internet I want to deploy to the docker cloud.I have not registered it yet on Microsoft Bot Framework as I do not have “Messaging endpoint URL” . Most examples online use Azure to get https and consequently connect it to channels like Facebook, Skype, etc.
Would anyone be able to advise me on my further actions as I am not sure if using Azure is compulsory ?
Thanks in regards,
