Generating test URLs and QR codes for Apple Business Chat

You can generate QR codes and URLs with additional query string parameters that will enable you to test that messages from users are routed to the correct interaction.

Note: For background information, see Using Apple Business Chat groups and intents.
  1. In Designer, click Config and go to the Integration tab.
  2. Expand the Apple Business Chat section. The tab shows a basic link which takes this form:

    https://bcrw.apple.com/sms:open?service=iMessage&recipient=urn:biz:<chatbot ID>

  3. Fill out the fields with the query strings that you want to test:
    Query string parameter Value
    Group ID for testing Optional. Enter a valid value for appleGroupID. Use this for the values passed in the biz‑group‑id query string parameter.
    Intent ID for testing Optional. Enter a valid value for appleIntentID. Use this for the values passed in the biz‑intent‑id query string parameter.
    Predefined body Optional. Enter the message typed and sent by the user.
  4. Click Generate new QR Code and Link. This updates the QR code and link shown on the page, appending the basic link with the value(s) you enter. This example just contains a Group ID:

    https://bcrw.apple.com/sms:open?service=iMessage&recipient=urn:biz:<chatbot ID>&biz-group-id=myGroupID
