Configuring Pulse feed sources for Cosmos React
Ensure that users of your Cosmos React applications can view relevant messages by adding a feed source to their activity feed. For example, you can add an external feed source, so that customer service representatives (CSRs) that work with finances can see posts about currency rates.

- Create a feed source. For more information, see Creating feed sources for activity feeds.

- On the list of Pulse instances, open the instance for which you want to edit
the feed sources:

which users can add their posts.
For example: If you want users to add posts in the context of a case, enter .pzInsKey.

feeds section, click Add pulse feed, and
