Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Create Pega Intelligent Virtual Assistant (IVA) for Web Chatbot so that users can interact with a Pega Platform application to answer questions, report an issue, or step through a process by sending messages in an embedded chat window. For example, with the IVA for Web Chatbot, users can create a case to inquire about a car price estimate or book a flight.

Update the Pega Platform application access group for an IVA for Web Chatbot. For more information, see Updating the access group for an IVA channel.

Create a new channel for the IVA for Web Chatbot. For more information, see Setting up a Web Chatbot channel.

An IVA for Web Chatbot takes advantage of similar bot capabilities that are available in the IVA for Facebook. However, you have full control over the end-to-end communication and no additional accounts or third-party installation is necessary.
