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.

picture1
To access the Live Assist Admin center goto Settings -> Live Assist
picture2

Click the Live Engage Settings URL to open the Live Assist Admin Center

picture3

Click Campaigns (1) and then Data Sources (2)
picture4
Navigate to the section Connectors and click the Configure button in the Authentication Server row
picture5
In the Select an authentication type drop down (1) select oAuth 2.0 authentication (implicit) (2)

picture6a

In the Authentication Endpoint textbox (1)...

picture7

... type your <portal url>/auth/authorize (eg https://myportalname.microsoftcrmportals.com/auth/authorize)

picture8a
In the JS Method Name textbox (1) type auth.getAuthenticationToken

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)
picture10
Click Portal Actions (1) and then Get Public Key (2) and copy the public key to the clipboard
picture11
Paste the public key string into the JWT Public Key textbox (1) and then click Save (2)

picture12a

Verify the authentication server configuration has been saved
picture13
Last step is to configure the Live Assist campaign to only accept chat from authenticated visitors

Click Campaigns (1) and then the  Live Chat on your site (2) campaign
picture14
Scroll down to the Sticky Chat button, hover over the Engagement row (1) and click Edit (2)
picture15
Click the gear icon (1)
picture16

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

  1. I have tested this and it works 100% on the portals. Can someone please help me, I am battling to configure Know who you assist for ADX studio. I can’t figure out how to get the JWT Public Key for an ADX website.
