  6. Adding a Groove Bot

Adding a Groove Bot provides integration for a built-in Groove Bot that you can use to display message notifications and execute tasks directly from Messenger or other supported channel. To use the Groove Bot, you just need to add the Bot to your channel, and then configure the settings for the Bot, such as authentication to access Groove, and the notification messages that you want. For more information about other Bots, see  Adding Bots.

About the Bot for Groove

DIYGrooveLogoGroove is a simple customer service ticketing and knowledge base Software for SaaS and eCommerce Businesses. You can use this Bot to get alert messages for new and changed tickets and customers, as well as for action tasks such as creating or updating tickets.

Integration Type Webhook – Connect to this Bot using a webhook integration where the web application pushes message notifications in near real time.
Category Customer Support – This Bot is available in the application in the Customer Support category.
Channels – This Bot is available in the Messenger application.
Spark – This Bot is available in the Cisco Spark application.

Configuring Groove 

To configure a Groove webhook for, you must have a Groove account with administrator access as well as API access to configure a webhook. If you don’t, you’ll need to contact theGroove system administrator for your company. For more information, see the Customer Support Center in the Groove documentation.
To get started configuring the webhook in Groove, you’ll need two things:

  1. The webhook URL provided when you set up an alert in the channel of your choice for each alert that you want to enable in Groove.
  2. A valid Username and Password for an account with Groove API access.

The webhook URL is account-specific and cannot be transferred to any other account. This means that if you configure a Groove webhook using a test account, you will have to recreate the alert and get a new webhook URL to configure in Groove. The following URL is an example webhook URL.

Configuring Webhook

This procedure describes the steps in Groove to configure a webhook using a webhook URL endpoint.

  1. Log on to Groove and then on the top menu bar, click Settings.
  2. In the COMPANY section, click API. The API Settings page is displayed.
  3. In the Webhooks section, in the first field, select the notification type for the alert, for example, ticket_started.
  4. In the second field, enter the webhook URL for the alert.
  5. Click ADD WEBHOOK.
  6. Repeat steps 3 – 5 for each notification type.

Groove Notification Types

The following list shows the types of Groove notifications you can choose to create a alert.
ticket_started, ticket_opened, ticket_closed, ticket_assigned, ticket_priority_changed, ticket_deleted, ticket_tagged, ticket_moved, customer_replied, customer_added, agent_invited, agent_archived, note_added, agent_replied
For more information, see Webhooks in the Groove documentation.
After you are connected, you can perform tasks for Groove directly from your channel and setup message notifications to get notified when an event occurs in Groove.
