Intro

This guide will walk you through the following:


  • Creating a discord bot
  • Connecting to Comcord

Creating a discord bot:

Go to the discord developer portal at https://discord.com/developers and log in with your normal discord account.

Click on the "New Application" button.

Give your bot a name, the display name is configured elsewhere, so dont worry too much about this.

Select "Bot" on the side menu.

Here you can configure your bots display name and profile picture. We will come back to this section later to get the token.

The Public Bot option should ideally remain OFF. However if you need to get the bot into a server you do not personally own, you can temporarily enable this to allow someone else to invite your bot.

Enable all privileged gateway intents, these unlock more information on the bot, for example information about reactions and events like a user joining your server.

Dont forget to save your changes!

Now that your bot is configured, click the "Reset Token" button and keep hold of the token. If you forget this you can always reset it. Its important to keep this safe as it is the password and unique identifier to your bot. Please note that this does not give access to your personal account in any way, these are completely seperate entities.

Next go to the URL Generator to create your bots invite link.

Tick the admin option. This ensures that new Comcord features will work uninterrupted by your bot settings.

And finally, keep hold of your bot invite link. This can be regenerated if you lose it.

Paste the bot link into your browser, and discord will ask you which server you want to invite the bot to.

You must own the server or have the relevant privileges to invite the bot. Its best to give the link to the owner of the server.

Connecting to Comcord:

After signing up to Comcord, go to https://www.comcord.app/users/profile/ and enter your bot token into the "Discord auth key" field. Dont forget to save.
