            How to use Google Oauth2.0 to authenticate user via Telegram Bot
            Asked 2022-Mar-30 at 08:56

            This is my first time interacting with Google API and I'm using python3.9 with this library Python Telegram Bot I want to access a user Google API Calendar via a telegram bot and I can't seem to find any article to guide me through it. My key problem (I think) is redirecting the success authorization flow back to telegram bot.

            This is what I have in mind:

            1. In the telegram app, user send '/send' to bot
            2. Bot receive message and return a google an authorization link to user
            3. User clink on authorization link and allow access
            4. Bot receive authorization access and completes the Oauth flow

            The problem lies betweeen step 3 and 4. A standard authorization link is

            How do I send the authorization link back to my telegram bot? Should I create another API endpoint to receive that authorization link? Or can I send telegram api send_message() in the to redirect the success message to my bot.

            Update 1

            Thanks to CallMeStag, I manage to figure out a way to complete the oauth process. For people who faced the same problem, this is what I did Pre-requisite: Credentials is created in google console api - Web application. redirect_uri set as localhost:8000 (During development phase)

            1. User send '/send' to bot
            2. Bot receive message and return an authorization link ...


            Answered 2022-Mar-29 at 06:44

            It's currently indeed not very straight forward for a PTB-application to listen for external updates (the auth verification in this cas) - see also this issue. Currently it might be easiest for you to set up a custom webhook application that runs in parallel to the Updater - e.g. using flask/django/starlette/fastapi/…. Alternatively, if you're using webhooks for your bot anyway, you can patch the Updater to do the job for you. Although that requires some manual work - see here for an example.

            Once you are able to listen to updates coming from Google, handling them can be done via PTBs usual handler setup, specifically via the TypeHandler or even a custom Handler subclass - see this FAQ entry.

            Regarding the redirect url: You'll want to redirect your user back to your bot, so you'll have to provide a link that does that. should probably do the trick.

            Python Telegram Bot + 3rd Party Listener
            Asked 2022-Mar-29 at 10:26

            I'm working with Python Telegram Bot

            I'm trying to implement a bot function into a 3rd party listener, so when the handle_event() is fired, with a telegram username as parameter, the bot bans that member from the group. here we go with an example:



            Answered 2022-Mar-29 at 10:26

            Update is a class and the property Update.effective_chat can only be properly evaluated for instances of that class. If you want to make simple calls to the Bot API, you should instantiate an instance of the telegram.Bot class and call its methods - in your case Bot.ban_chat_member. Please see the Introduction to the API for a more detailed explanation of how to use the API methods.



            Python Telegram Bot Chat.ban_member() issues

            I'm working with Python Telegram Bot and trying to build my first bot on telegram.

            I've followed the example as a template

            I want to add a functionality that if a user is not in the list, the bot should kick him out but I'm having some issues implementing this function. My code is as follows:



            Answered 2022-Mar-21 at 17:05

            Handler callbacks must have exactly two positional arguments - that's just how python-telegram-bot is designed. That's why your first approach doesn't work.

            Moreover, Chat.ban_member is a bounded method, not a class/static method. Chat is a class, not an instance of that class, so Chat.ban_member(user_id) can't work either. You need an instance of the Chat class to call that method. In your case probably or update.effective_chat (the latter being a shortcut for the former).

            Telegram bot (Flask app on Google Cloud Run) stops responding after instance reloading
            Asked 2022-Feb-24 at 07:51

            I'm trying to make my first Telegram bot on Python. I use the python-telegram-bot, Flask, run it in Google Cloud Run. Locally on my machine everything works fine, when I deploy it (using Docker) to Google Cloud Run everything also works fine until the moment when Google Cloud Run stops the instance. That's what I see in Gloud Run logs:



            Answered 2022-Feb-24 at 07:51

            TBF, I'm not familiar with Google Cloud Run, but if I understand correctly the point is that you code will only be invoked when a request is made to the app, i.e. it's one of those "serverless" setups - is that correct?

            If so: What updater.start_polling() does is start a long running background thread that fetches updates continuously. To have your bot responsive 24/7 with this method, your script needs to run 24/7. Now the point of serverless setups is that your code only runs on demand, so for this hosting method a more reasonable approach would be to only invoke your code when your bot receives an update. This can achieved using a webhook instead of long polling. There is a section on this in the PTB wiki. See also this thread about AWS Lambda, which is similar AFAIK.

            However one should note that stateful logic like ConversationHandler is hard to realize in such setups: By default ConversationHandler keeps track of the current state in memory, so the information is lost on shutdown of the process. You can use persistence to store the data, but I'm not sure how well this works with serverless setups - there might be race conditions if multiple updates come in at the same time. So another idea would be to switch to a different hosting service that allows to run your process 24/7.

            How do make a telegram bot to read a pdf file sent by user and extract data from it?
            Asked 2022-Feb-23 at 14:59

            I have been checking on forums(stack overflow, git, Telegram APIs) to check how could I extract contents from a pdf file which is sent by user? I have created Telegram bot using python's python-telegram-bot library and as an efforts to try to solve my question, I had checked links eg: and in search of functions but couldn't find anything there.

            I did find methods to send a pdf file to user from bot and send a file from user to bot but there is nothing available where BOT can extract contents of pdf sent by user. Will be grateful if experts could guide me here.



            Answered 2022-Feb-23 at 14:59

            python-telegram-bot is a library that provides a wrapper for the Telegram Bot API. As such, it provides all the methods from the API as well as auxiliary functionality to build chat bots in general, including downloading files sent by users. Extracting contents from a received PDF file after download is however far beyond the scope of this library.

            Of course there are other libraries that provide such functionality and that can be used in combinantion with python-telgram-bot. See e.g. camelot.

            How can I continue a nested conversation in a separate file
            Asked 2022-Feb-17 at 00:39

            I am not a professional programmer but I'm trying to build a python-telegram-bot for work using ConversationHandlers. Basically, I offer users a menu of options, summarized as:

            • Complete Survey
            • EXIT

            If "Complete Survey" is selected, the bot then asks for the user ID. Depending on the user ID I assign the user 1 of 30+ different surveys (I'm trying to use child conversations). Over time this list of surveys will grow and each survey has unique questions and steps to it.

            Given the number of surveys, I thought of managing each survey as a child conversation with its own ConversationHandler, and running it from a separate file/module (to keep things dynamic and not have one HUGE file with n+ variables to consider).

            The thing is, how can I continue the child conversation from a separate file? Is there another way to approach this? I understand that the bot is still running from the main file and checking for updates. I would like to run each survey and, once finished, return to the INITIAL bot menu (parent conversation).

            I found this previous discussion but my knowledge barely goes beyond the python-telegram-bot examples so I'm having a hard time following along:

            I have been developing telegram bots for about a year now, and I hope the best approach is to structure your project first. Let me explain that all in detail.


            Folder structure

            Basically, all the code is in the src folder of the project. Inside the src folder there is another sub-folder called components which includes all the different sections of your bot you want to work on (i.e your quiz_1, quiz_2, ...) and file which includes the 'core' of the bot. However in the root directory of the project (which is just your project folder) you can see file which serves just as a runner file. So nothing more in there except just:
