Updates (changes) the chatbot message

Attention! restCommand function is used here for illustration purposes only. It is taken from the EchoBot example. You can send a REST command with your own function, or use the BX24.callMethod or bitrix24-php-sdk methods.

Note: These methods of message processing are usually employed when the user is typing something, that is why the ONIMBOTMESSAGEADD event must be processed.

Method call

$result = restCommand('imbot.message.update', Array(

    'BOT_ID' => 39, // ID of chatbot that sends request. Is optional, there is only one chatbot
    'MESSAGE_ID' => 1, // Message ID
    'MESSAGE' => 'answer text' // Message text, optional field, if null value is specified – message will be deleted
    'ATTACH' => '' // Attachment, optional field 
    'KEYBOARD' => '' // Keyboard, optional field 
    'MENU' => '' // Context menu, optional field
    'URL_PREVIEW' => 'Y' // Convert links to rich-links, optional field, by default 'Y'

), $_REQUEST["auth"]);


true or error.
