Embedding a chat window for the Legacy Webchat channel


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

Generate mashup code for your Legacy Webchat channel and embed it on an external website like a web page. The web page displays a chat window where users can interact with a Pega Platform application, for example, to obtain a list of commands or open a case.

Create a Legacy Webchat channel and obtain access to a web page for which you will embed the mashup code for a Legacy Webchat channel. For more information, see Creating a Legacy Webchat channel.

To generate the mashup code for a website, specify a URL address for your Pega Platform application so that the system knows where to connect during a chat conversation.

Generate the mashup code again and embed it on a web site, if you change any Legacy Webchat channel settings, for example, the URL for your Pega Platform application.
To learn about configuring authentication for the IVA for Legacy Webchat, see Authentication in Web Chatbot.
