Alan AI projects

To start creating an AI assistant in Alan AI Studio, you need to create a project for it. One project contains one or more dialog scripts for a single AI assistant. If you want to add conversational experiences to several apps, you need to create a separate project for each of them.

Managing a project

To create a project:

  1. Sign in to Alan AI Studio.

  2. In the main view, click Create Project.

  3. Select to create an empty project or choose an example project provided by Alan AI — Web Chat Example or Voice Assistant Example.

  4. If you create an empty project, in the Project Name field, enter the project name and click Create.


You can add predefined scripts to your project or create custom scripts for your app. For details, see Dialog scripts.

If necessary, you can rename or delete a project.

  • To rename a project, in the top right corner of the project widget, click the options icon and select Rename.

  • To delete a project, in the top right corner of the project widget, click the options icon and select Delete.


When you delete a project, all scripts you have in the project are permanently deleted. You may want to save your scripts beforehand. For details, see Exporting scripts.

Restarting a project

In some cases, you may need to restart the project dialog on the server side, in the Alan AI Cloud. This can happen, for example, if the dialog freezes up and fails to respond at all. When you restart a project, Alan AI closes the dialog container and restarts the dialog in a new one.


The dialog container is restarted for a specific environment — Development, Testing or Production.

To restart a project:

  1. In Alan AI Studio, open the project.

  2. At the top of the code editor, click Integrations.

  3. At the top of the view, select the environment for which you want to restart the project: Development, Testing or Production.

  4. At the bottom of the view, click Restart Virtual Machine.
