Tutorial: Deploy a Dialogflow Agent with the Jovo CLI

To deploy a Dialogflow agent you have 2 options:

  • Import the file into your Dialogflow agent (we recommend using the option RESTORE)
  • If you're using the Dialogflow v2 API (default since April 17, 2018), you can also deploy the agent directly to the platform. For this, read more in our Dialogflow deployment tutorial.
