Know who you assist
In my previous post I talked about setting Live Assist for Dynamics 365 up. In this post I'll take you through how to configure Live Assist so you know which portal contact you are assisting/chatting with.
I'll ensure that when a portal contact logs into the portal and initiates a chat session the agent sees her contact info, chat history and more.
Click the Live Engage Settings URL to open the Live Assist Admin Center
Click Campaigns (1) and then Data Sources (2)
Navigate to the section Connectors and click the Configure button in the Authentication Server row
In the Select an authentication type drop down (1) select oAuth 2.0 authentication (implicit) (2)
In the Authentication Endpoint textbox (1)...
... type your <portal url>/auth/authorize (eg https://myportalname.microsoftcrmportals.com/auth/authorize)
For the last textbox JWT Public Key we will need to head to the Dynamics 365 Administration Center and get the public key for the portal
Dynamics 365 Administration Center -> Applications -> Portal (2) -> Manage (3)
Click Portal Actions (1) and then Get Public Key (2) and copy the public key to the clipboard
Paste the public key string into the JWT Public Key textbox (1) and then click Save (2)
Flip the switch for Authenticated visitors only and then click Publish
Now when a portal contact (in this example Pia Petersen) logs into the portal (1) and initiates a chat session the agent sees her name (2) and contact info, chat history and more (3) right there in Dynamics 365 (chat history is listed under Activities in the Activity Wall)
Enjoy Live Assist and Dynamics 365
