How to add your bot to servers?

If you want to add bots to servers you first need to create a bot, which we showed in the previous article. If you follow those steps you can easily create a bot.

Before you are actually able to see your bot in your own or other servers, it needs to be added using a special invite link that can be created using your bot application’s client ID.

Invite Links

Here is an sample invite link:

“https://discordapp.com/oauth2/authorize?client_id=123456789012345678&scope=bot”

You need to understand the structure of this link.

  • The first part of this link is Discord’s standard structure for authorizing an OAuth2 application for entry to a Discord server.
  • The second part that says “client_id=” is used to specify which application you want to authorize. You have to replace this part with your client’s ID in order to create a valid invite link.
  • The third part which says “scope=bot” specifies that you want to add this application as a Discord bot.

How to create and use your own invite link?

You have to replace the client_id parameter with your client’s ID in order to produce your invite link as mentioned above in the points.

In order to find your App’s ID, navigate back to “My Apps” page under the “Applications” section once again and click on your bot application.

Enter your app’s ID into the link template and then access it in your browser.

Then, you have to select the server you want to add it to and click on the “Authorize” button. It should be kept in mind that you are going to need the “Manage Server” permission on a server in order to be able to add your bot there. This should then present you a confirmation message.

What to do if you lose access to Two-Factor Codes?

With Discord, you can easily communicate with your teammates or friends in the form of text, image, video, and audio. It is a really useful freeware app that is specially designed for video gaming communities.

DiscordWhen you create an account on Discord, then like most of the services it offers you to set up Two-Factor Authentication.

Two-Factor Authentication gives you an extra layer of security and in-case your account gets compromised, no one will be able to access your account unless they provide the Two-Factor Authentication codes.

Sometimes bad luck can hit you, and you get logged out of your Desktop app and also lose access to your phone. In that case, it may be impossible for you to provide two-factor authentication codes. So, what to do if you lose access to Two-Factor Codes?

What to do if you lose access to Two-Factor Codes?

  1. Double check that if you are logged into your Discord account from Desktop App or Browser. If you are logged in, luckily, you will be able to see all of your backup codes with your current password.
  2. If that isn’t the case, then you have only one option left and that is to search your computer for “discord_backup_codes.txt”. Search your PC for this file and if you happen to find it, then you are in luck!

These two are the only ways by which you can access your account if you ever lose access.

If you do not have access to your backup codes, then it will be impossible for you to access your account. Discord is unable to remove Two-Factor Authentication or provide you with new backup codes.

You will have to create new Discord Account.
