How To add bots to Discord Server?
Before Adding Bots to discord servers First You need To set up a server and Get an Access Authorization. If you have already completed Those steps You can move to guide On how to add bots to the discord server. Otherwise Here we have a full guide From creating servers To adding bot to it.
Way To Setup Server
Setting up a Discord server is not that complicated as you might think. Discord is free to install on Windows, MAC, Linux, Android, and IOS. In this article, I’ll be creating a server on a Windows OS. Once you download and install all the resources, you can run it. If you don’t have a Discord account(not a big deal) you can easily create one.
Once you have logged in, click on “Create a server” button and then you can name it and choose your geographical region. You can add your custom display picture if you want to. Hit “Create”, and your new Discord server is ready.
To add a bot in your server, you have to check whether you have permission to add bots or not. Not everyone can add Discord bots to your server, and you need to have Administrative or “Manage Server” license to invite a bot. If you don’t have either of these roles, you won’t be able to add bots.
To check if you have these roles, you can go to the “Server setting” of the server in which you want to add bots by clicking on the server’s name.
If you can’t see the “server setting” option, There’s a good chance that you don’t have the permission to add bots. If you can see the “Server setting” option, clicks on it, then click on the option”Roles”. Check the roles which you have been assigned for their permission; if you can see that you have been granted “Administrative” or “Manage Server” permissions, you are good to go.
The first step is to find the bot you want to add. You can find different types of bots in “Discord Bots”.
So here’s how to add bots to your Discord Server:
- Get Admin’s permission to access and configure your Discord Server.
- Open a Browser App on your Windows PC.
- Go to Discord’s Website.
- Log in with your username and password.
- On your Discord profile page, go to General permission and make sure that the “Manage Server” option is enabled.
- Now click on “Invite Bot” or “Add Bot to Server”.
- Select the Server on Discord App.
- If a pop-up window appears, click on “Confirm” to authorize.
Now, the selected Bot is automatically added to your Server. Now, open your Discord server page and go to the sidebar. You’d see the bot appear in the sidebar.
Alternate Way To Add Bots To server
If you want to add bots directly and quickly as possible, there’s another way to do it. All you need to know is bot’s Client ID, and you’ll need to be logged into your Discord Server. This method works best when you want to add GitHub bots on Discord, which don’t have Web-interface.
- Login to your Discord Profile.
- Paste the following URL:- “https://discordapp.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=<Bot_Client_ID>&scope=bot&permissions=0”
- Change the bot’s actual Client ID in the place of “Bot_Client_ID” in the above URL.
- You may still have to authorize the bot.
Authorizing your discord bot
It doesn’t end at adding a bot to your Discord Server. Discord is very careful with bots and sometimes require multiple authorizations to enable one to work. It uses Oauth2 to allow a permitted bot to access and interact. However, sometimes, you may be asked to authorize it manually. You can do that by merely clicking on the small “Authorize” tab underneath the message “this App cannot read or send messages on your behalf”.
