Configure Async Tasks

You will have to setup a celery backend, I personally use redis but rabbitmq should work as well. I good guide to setting up reddis on Ubuntu can be found here https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-and-configure-redis-on-ubuntu-16-04.
Add the broker-url and result-backend uri to the environment vars. The default values are for a redis backend.
export CELERY_BROKER_URL=redis://localhost:6379 export CELERY_RESULT_BACKEND=redis://localhost:6379
or you can use a config.yaml file with the following information
celery: result_backend: redis://localhost:6379 broker_url: redis://localhost:6379
to start celery run the following command.
celery -A microsoftbotframework.runcelery.celery worker --loglevel=info
This method will be executed asynchronously. Several Celery decorators are available, check the documentation.
@celery.task() def AsyncTask(message): sleep(10)
