  3. Configuring the NiceInContact (User Hub) Agent

Configuring the NiceInContact (User Hub) Agent

NiceInContact CXone virtual agent (user) hub simplifies the deployment of conversational virtual assistants and agents for customer self-service. Kore.ai XO Platform’s NiceInContact Agent integration allows you to seamlessly hand off the virtual assistant conversations to your live agents on Nice Chat.

Use the configuration steps below as general guidelines to enable the NiceInContact User Hub integration. You may notice minor differences based on the version of the NiceInContact User Hub you are using.

Overview

Kore.ai’s virtual assistant (VA) serves as the central point of interaction for the users. The VA facilitates communication and interaction between the user and the NiceInContact User Hub. In addition to its regular capabilities, the VA acts as a proxy or intermediary between the users and the NiceInContact agents to hand over conversations seamlessly. The VA also allows you to integrate with the NiceInContact platform.

Configuration

To configure the NiceInContact User Hub agent, follow the instructions below.

Step 1: Generate Access Details for NiceInContact User Hub Account

Steps to generate access details:

  1. Log in to https://login.incontact.com/ with your NiceInContact credentials.
  2. Generate AccessKeyId and AccessKeySecret from the User Profile to send a token request. To learn how to generate the access key and secret, read NiceInContact Generate Access Key Documentation.
    Note: These access details can be generated in the CXone interface on the Employees Page for the User Hub.
  3. Copy the Access Key and Access Secret for future use.

Step 2: Register an App and Retrieve a Client ID and Secret

To retrieve the client ID and client secret, you must register your application.

Steps to register the app:

  1. Log in to https://login.incontact.com/ with your NiceInContact credentials.
  2. To register an app for Nice In Contact User Hub, follow the instructions in the Application Registration Documentation.
  3. To register your application, go to the Application Registration page on the developer portal. Provide the following specific information:
    • Tenancy of the application: Single Tenant
    • Authentication method: client_secret_basic
    • CXone ACD API scopes required: PatronApi
    • Type of application being registered: Back-end
  4. Once you register your application, you will receive a client_id and client_secret.
  5. Once the API app is registered, copy the Client ID and Client Secret and keep it for future use.

Step 3: Create a Point of Contact

Create the point of contact and assign the skill and campaign to handover conversations.
