The Kore.ai XO Platform offers pre-built integrations with popular business applications to exchange data. You can configure and enable actions for Service Now, Salesforce, Zendesk, Hubspot, and others. Each of these integrations provides a full conversation flow definition, a low-code interface for API integration, and pre-built response mapping and create dialog tasks with pre-built templates without need to worry about developer assistance.

Steps to use the actions or pre-built integrations
- Enable the Developer or a User to do a single-click authorization.
- Enable an integration to exchange data between two systems during the dialog task execution.
- Enable an integration and create the dialog tasks using the preconfigured templates supported by the integration.
The Actions module is available under the Build > Integrations menu.
By default, your Virtual Assistant (VA) will not exchange data with any integration unless you authorize one or more actions through which it can communicate. You can enable an integration and perform actions in a third-party system.
The Kore.ai XO Platform supports OAuth 2.0, Basic, and API key based authentication to allow an integration to exchange data.
OAuth v2 Authentication
OAuth v2 is the new version of the open protocol to allow secure authorization via a standard method from web, mobile, and desktop applications. To learn how OAuth v2 authentication works, read the Setting Up Authorization using OAuth v2 article.
Basic HTTP Authentication
HTTP Basic Auth is a simple method that creates a username and password style authentication for HTTP requests. This technique uses a header called Authorization, with a base64 encoded representation of the username and password. For more information, read the Bot Authorization Overview article.
Identification and authorization token generated or provided by a web application or web service used to identify the incoming application request, and in some cases, also provides authentication for secure access. For more information, read the Setting Up Authorization using an API Key article.
Actions can be authorized based on the authorization profiles that are supported by the third-party integrations. Users can use pre-authorized credentials provided by the developer during the configuration process or their own authorization profile during the configuration process to let the end user authorize during the conversation.
|Note: An email notification is sent to all the bot developers when the authorization token expires for any of the Prebuilt Action Integrations in the bot. The notification requests the bot developer to reauthorize. The integration moves to an error state as soon as the token expires. The service call fails during the run time, upon expiry of authorization token and an error message, “Something went wrong” is displayed to the end-user.|
The email template which is sent to the bot developer upon token expiry is as follows:

Disabling or Deleting Actions/Integrations
You can disable or delete an external integration that you configured earlier. This is useful in case you want to switch to another integration and are no longer using the configured integration.
Disabling an Integration/Action
Disabling the integration action will change its status from enabled to disabled, but the authorization configurations associated with it will remain the same.
Steps to disable an integration.
- To disable the integration, hover over it in the actions list and click the Settings icon in the top right corner.
- If the action/integration is enabled, you will have the option to Disable it, and vice versa.
- Once you Disable an action, the authorization configurations related to that particular action are disabled with no changes.
- The service node status changes from Integration Service to Custom Service.
- If you need to enable a previously disabled action, you can do so by hovering over it in the actions list and clicking on the Settings icon located in the top right corner as shown in the figure below.
- You will be redirected to re-authorize the action with your external integration account credentials. For more information related to how to authorize an integration action, see Authorization article.
Deleting an Integration/Action
You can delete an external integration that is no longer in use.
Steps to delete an integration:
- To delete the integration, hover over it in the actions list and click the Settings icon in the top right corner.
- Choose the option to Delete the action/integration.
Warning: Deletion is permanent and cannot be undone. You are asked to confirm your choice, so make sure this is exactly what you want to do. Once an action is Deleted, all authorization configurations related to that particular integration are deleted.
