Kore.ai provides integration for a built-in Groove Bot that you can use to display message notifications and execute tasks directly from Kore.ai 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 Kore.ai Bots, see Adding Bots.

To configure a Groove webhook for Kore.ai, 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:
- The Kore.ai 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.
- 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.
This procedure describes the steps in Groove to configure a webhook using a Kore.ai webhook URL endpoint.
- Log on to Groove and then on the top menu bar, click Settings.
- In the COMPANY section, click API. The API Settings page is displayed.
- In the Webhooks section, in the first field, select the notification type for the Kore.ai alert, for example, ticket_started.
- In the second field, enter the Kore.ai webhook URL for the alert.
- Click ADD WEBHOOK.
- Repeat steps 3 – 5 for each notification type.
