Bot Integration with Glip

I'm looking for an overview on what is required to get a Bot to work with Glip.

I have done the following:
  1. Created an app in developer.ringcentral.com (sandbox) as type server/bot
  2. Created a bot in Heroku (Tried hubot and Litabot)
In both cases, I get an authentication failure.  I think I need to authorize the bot first with the callback address, but this seems to be a chicken and egg problem!

The bot won't run because it can't authenticate, and I can't authorize the bot until it runs long enough to process the callback message.

I feel like I'm missing something simple to get it to work.

Any ideas / help would be appreciated!

Hi Chad,

Did you follow the instructions to set the configuration for your bot from here https://github.com/tylerlong/hubot-glip?

Currently, we don't have example code for Hubot and Litabot. But there is a tutorial for Botkit (https://ringcentral-tutorials.github.io/botkit-watson-bot-nodejs-demo/) and the configuration and authentication is pretty the same. Please have a look at the tutorial to see if you can find what is wrong with your project.

Let me know if that does help.
