Configure a Cluster of Chat Servers
Genesys Co-browse 8.5 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 Cluster application.
- Add your Chat servers to an Application Cluster application object and then add this application object in the Connections list for Co-browse Cluster.
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.
