  • You need a Cognitive Services API key to use LUIS. To get an API key follow these steps:
    1. You first need to create a Cognitive Services API account in the Azure portal. If you don’t have an Azure subscription, create a free account before you begin.

    1. Go back to the LUIS website and log in using your Azure account.
    2. Go to My Apps.
    3. Click Create new app.
    4. In the dialog box, name your application, and select the desired culture (language).
    5. Click Done.
    6. Your new LUIS application was created.
    7. Click Settings.
    8. Keep a record of the Application ID, we will need it later.
