Configure a Cluster of Chat Servers

Genesys Co-browse Server can support either a standalone Chat Server or a cluster of Chat servers.

This chapter describes how to configure the necessary Genesys components to allow Co-browse Server to work with a cluster of Chat Server application objects.


Chat Server Applications

You must have two or more configured Chat servers in order to organize them in a cluster. Each Chat Server must:

  • Work in the same tenant.
  • Have the same Interaction Server and Universal Contact Server in the Connections list.
  • Have the same Chat inbound queue configured in its endpoints:<tenant_id> section.
  • Have a webapi port. This port must be configured in the Listening Ports section.

Configure the Chat Server Cluster

To organize the Chat Server applications in a cluster, do one of the following:

  • Add all of your Chat servers in the Connections list for the Co-browse Server application.


  • Add your Chat servers to an Application Cluster application object and then add this application object in the Connections list for Co-browse Server.

Application Cluster Object

An Application Cluster is a set of application objects united in a cluster (such as Chat servers, Email servers,, and so on). This configuration object has a template of type "Application Cluster", and you can find it in the Templates directory for any Web API Server version.

Configure Co-browse Server to work with the Chat Server Cluster
