To enable users to chat on various messaging platforms using Pega Intelligent Virtual Assistant™ (IVA), configure the security settings for your Unified Messaging channel. When you define the security settings for the system, you can access Digital Messaging Manager for your channel. You can then set up Apple Business Chat, Facebook Messenger, MMS/SMS (Twilio), Twitter, and WhatsApp Messenger as chatbot messaging platforms for your application.
- Verify that your application meets the requirements to access Digital Messaging Manager. The following are the minimum Pega Customer Service
and Pega Platform versions required:
- Pega Customer Service version 8.4.4 with Pega Platform version 8.4.5.
- Pega Customer Service version 8.5.2 with Pega Platform version 8.5.4.
- Pega Customer Service version 8.6 with Pega Platform version 8.6.
- Define a publicly accessible secured URL for the environment, or configure the system to allow communication with the Digital Messaging service.
- Obtain the security settings for your Unified Messaging channel, including the Manager ID and the Manager Key values for Digital Messaging Manager, by contacting Pega Support. For more information, go to Pega Support.
- Ensure that you request a separate set of credentials for each environment that you maintain.
- If your Pega Platform is installed on premises or has internal access only, perform additional configuration for your environment so that your system can communicate with the Digital Messaging service. For more information, see Configuring on-premises or internal access only environments for Digital Messaging access.
Digital Messaging requires a separate set of Manager ID and Manager Key credentials for each instance of Pega Platform. If you have multiple instances of Pega Platform, for example, for development, staging, and production purposes, specify the number of instances in your request to Pega Support, so that you receive a unique set of credentials for each instance.
