Deploy Social Messaging Server

Interoperability and Compatibility

Information on interoperability of Social Engagement components with other eServices and Genesys components can be found on the eServices page of the Supported Operating Environments Guide and the Migration Guide.

Create a Social Messaging Server Application Object

Create an Application object for Social Messaging Server if it does not already exist.

Be sure to create the Social Messaging Server application object with type Social Messaging Server. This application type is compatible with all Configuration Server releases from 8.1.201 on.
  1. Import the Social Messaging Server application template from the CD.

  2. Create a new Application object based on the template.
    • Open the Properties dialog box of the Application object.
    • On the Server Info tab:
  3. In the Host box, enter the name of the desired host.
    • In the Communication Port box, enter the port Social Messaging Server will use.
  4. On the Start Info tab enter some characters in the Working Directory, Command Line, and Command Line Arguments fields. These characters will be over-written with the correct values during the installation, but they cannot be left blank at this point.
  5. On the Connections tab, add a connection to Interaction Server.
  6. If this is for a multi-tenant environment, add the tenant(s) on the Tenants tab.
  7. Open your Interaction Server Application and add a connection to Social Messaging Server.
