Adding an Assembla Bot

Kore.ai provides integration for a built-in Assembla Bot that you can use to display message notifications and execute tasks directly from the Kore.ai application. To use the Assembla Bot, you just need to add the Bot to your Kore.ai account, and then configure the settings for the Bot, such as authentication to access Assembla, and the notification messages that you want. This topic describes the Assembla built-in Bot for Kore.ai. For more information about other Kore.ai Bots, see Adding Bots.

Integration Type Webhook – Connect to this Bot using a webhook integration where the web application pushes message notifications in near real time.
Category Developer Tools – This Bot is available in the Kore.ai application in the Developer Tools category.


Configuring Assembla

To configure an Assembla webhook for Kore.ai, you must have an Assembla account with administrator access as well as API access to configure a webhook. If you don’t, you’ll need to contact the Assembla system administrator for your company.

To get started configuring the webhook in Assembla, you’ll need two things:

  1. The Kore.ai webhook URL provided when you set up an alert in your Kore.ai account for each alert that you want to enable in Assembla.
  2. A valid Username and Password for an account with Assembla API access.
  3. Installed the Webhook Tool

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


Configuring Webhook

This procedure describes the steps in Assembla to configure a webhook using a Kore.ai webhook URL endpoint.

  1. Log on to Assembla and then in the Spaces section, select the space that you want to add a Kore.ai webhook to. The Space Details page is displayed.
  2. If the Webhook tab is displayed on the top menu bar for your space, the webhook tool is already installed and you can skip to step 6.
  3. If the Webhook tab is not displayed on the top navigation bar, click Admin.
  4. In the Tools section, click More.
  5. In the list of tools, for Webhooks, click Add to install the webhook tool.
  6. On the Webhook tab, click New Webhook. The New Webhook page is displayed.
  7. In the Title field, enter the name for the webhook used in the Assembla application.
  8. Select Enabled to enable the webhook after it is configured.
  9. In the External URL field, enter the Kore.ai webhook URL for the alert.
  10. Set the Http method field to POST and the Content type field to application/json.
  11. In the Content text box, copy and paste the following code:
  12. In the Post updates about section, select the events that you want to get Kore.ai alerts for, and then Click Add or Update.

You can customize this webhook configuration to provide additional information in the Kore.ai Alert using other available variables in the Content text box, and selecting additional events in the Post updates about section. For more information, see the Configuring the Webhooks Tool Tutorial in the Assembla documentation.

Configuring Web Service

To configure web service tasks, you need to add the Assembla Bot using the Bot Store link in Kore.ai Messenger on the Bots page, and then setup the task.

To setup an Assembla task, click Connect to Assembla, enter your username, your password, and then press Enter.

After you are connected, you can perform tasks for Assembla directly from the Kore.ai application and setup message notifications to get notified in the Kore.ai application when an event occurs in Assembla.
