Implementing Bing Search with Bing Search API
# 🤝help
p
Hi. I am building a chatbot where one task is to provide user with information related to his surroundings - activities, attractions, restaurants etc. I have implemented Card Caruosel to show some resulst, but obviously users might have more inquiries regards those topics - such as other activities etc. Therefore, it seems that Bing Search API is supposed to provide a solution. I have gone over videos many times. And I am using templates. Of cause I have set the question to be saved into {{workflow.user.Question}}, set apiKey (.....) , endpoint (https://api.bing.microsoft.com/) etc., set mesagge to send: to - answer: {{JSON.stringify(workflow.answer)}}. When I run the bot I getting no errors, the variable userQuestion is filled, api call is being made, but I am getting no response - just (answer:""). The Logs are as follows: 1 16:16:02debugSending Message. Type: choice. Text: What are you looking for?..... 16:16:02debugWaiting for user input..... 16:16:14debug[Capture] Field validation successful! Extracted: "Activities in Tel Aviv". Input: Activities in Tel Aviv 16:16:14debug[Capture] Prompt success 16:16:14debugTransition from (flow:Main) [node:Question] to [node:Call-API] 16:16:14debugExecute code "make a GET request to https://api.bing.microsoft.com/ with the following URL parameters: query: workflow.usersQuestion, apiKey:env.apiKey, ignorePantry:'false', sort: 'popularity'. If response.status is 200,save the response.data.results to workflow.answer" 16:16:14debugTransition from (flow:Main) [node:Call-API] to [node:ShowResults] 16:16:14debugSending Message. Type: text. Text: answer: "" Can someone explain why this happens?

there might be something funky going on in the call api code. Would you mind posting it here?

We use the axios library for API calls in cloud, you'll need to format your API call to use that library https://axios-http.com/docs/intro
