FAQ

  • QnA Maker now offers a new managed deployment option available in Free Public Preview. On selecting the managed deployment option, telemetry and compute will be included automatically with your QnA Maker resource. Azure Cognitive Search will continue to be deployed in your subscription as before. The purpose of this new feature is to make it simpler to deploy QnA Maker services, by reducing the subsequent services you need to create Q and A experiences.
    • A “managed document” can be:

    • an FAQ URL
    • an FAQ page in tsv, pdf, doc, docx or xls format
    • a product manual in .pdf format
  • The QnAMaker runtime can be deployed to any region where Azure Cognitive Search and App Service is available. You can choose the regions and the tiers of Azure Cognitive Search and App Service (and optionally App insights), when you create a QnAMaker resource in the Azure portal. Please see the QnAMaker documentation for more details.
