Creating a Bot

How to create a Discord bot

  1. Go to the Discord Developer Portal.
  2. In the top right click "New Application".
  3. Set the name of the application to whatever you want it to be (make the name associated to what you plan on using it for).
  4. Click "Create".
  5. Go to the application under "My Applications".
  6. On the left sidebar, click "Bot".
  7. Reset the secret token and copy it (if you have OAuth disabled, you likely will be able to just copy the token).
  8. Under "Privileged Gateway Intents", set the "Presence Intent", "Server Members Intent" and "Message Content Intent" to true by clicking the slider on the right.
