Prerequisites

  • Genesys Administrator Extension 8.5.290.09 or later.
  • UCS 8.5.200.19 or later
  • UCS Proxy 8.5.100.04 or later
  • Classification Server 8.5.200.05 or later
  • If a previous version of eServices Manager Plug-in for GAX was installed on the current host, uninstall that version.
Important
One UCS instance can support multiple tenants in eServices Manager, and each tenant's data for standard responses and screening rules are stored separately from other tenants. The graphic below shows two tenants (Environment and Tenant_extra) using one UCS instance (ContactServer_852_2). The Environment tenant has data that is not accessible in the Tenant_extra tenant.

The following exceptions apply:

  • Field codes and custom variables are the same for all languages and tenants in the same environment.
  • Names of root categories must be unique for all languages in a single tenant.

Creating a zip file

  1. Create a temporary folder on your desktop.
  2. Copy the IP folder from the original location (typically, the product CD) into the temporary folder.
  3. Copy the templates folder from the original location into the temporary folder.
  4. Zip the contents of the temporary folder. Ensure the folders ip and templates are in the root directory of the zipped file.

Alternatively, contact Genesys Customer Care to obtain the required Zip file containing the installation package and associated templates.

Installing the plugin

Local Control Agent 8.5.100.31 or higher

  1. Upload the eServices Manager installation package (IP) to GAX. Refer to the GAX documentation for more information.
  2. Extract the IP to any folder.
  3. Navigate to the ip folder in the extracted folder.
  4. Do one of the following:
    On Windows, run setup.exe
    On Linux, run install.sh
  5. Restart GAX.

Local Control Agent 8.5.100.29 or lower

  1. Add the following option to the Application Options tab of the Genesys Administrator Extension (GAX) Application object:
    • Section name: asd
    • Option name: plugin_ip_list
    • Option value: eSMngrPlgnAdm64 (Windows host) or eSMngrPlgnAdm (Linux host)
    Tip
    This option is also used by Content Analyzer Plug-in for GAX and Privacy Manager Plug-in for GAX. If you are running both Privacy Manager and eServices Manager with Content Analyzer, the value can be a comma-separated list; for example, eSMngrPlgnAdm,PrivacyMng,CntAnlzPlgnAdm
  2. Restart GAX.
  3. Upload the eServices Manager installation package (IP). If you previously uploaded the IP, you must do so again now.
  4. Carry out the plug-in installation process.
  5. Restart GAX.

Configuring the plugin

Local Control Agent 8.5.100.31 or higher

  1. Create an Application for eServices Manager with the type Application Cluster.
  2. Add tenants to the eServices Manager Application.
  3. Specify the Host and Port. The Application Cluster application object and the GAX application must be configured with the same host in order to enable mutual TLS connections.
  4. Connect the eServices Manager Application to UCS and Classification Server.
  5. Configure these connections: TLS, ADDP, and so on.
  6. Navigate to the GAX Application Options for the eServices Manager Application.
  7. Create a section with the name gax-km.
  8. Create the following options in the gax-km section:
    • app-name = eServices Manager Application name
    • file-storage-path = Full path to the folder in which eServices Manager creates its temporary file. You must ensure that eServices Manager has permission to write into that directory.
    • connection-timeout = 3
  9. If you need multi-language support, set the UTF-8 JVM parameter for all Java components (UCS, GAX Server, Browser) in the corresponding .ini file (or .bat file if you start the component from command line):
    ini file: [JavaArgs] -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 ...
    bat file: set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 ...
  10. Restart GAX.
Tip
On multi-language support: In the GAX User Preference window (under the Preferences menu), Use system settings refers to using the settings in the System Preferences window. It does not refer to the Region and Language setting of the host machine.


If Use system settings is selected in the Language field of GAX's Locale User Preferences, it refers to the language that is selected in the Language field of System Preferences. Note that if you want to have any language other than English available in these fields, you must install the relevant language pack plug-in.
