Configuring System-Access Permissions
For Interaction Workspace to run correctly, the agent application must be granted permission to access specific system objects. When Interaction Workspace is launched, it connects to Configuration Server using the credentials of the agent who is logging in. Therefore, the required permissions to access system objects are typically much higher than those granted to an agent who uses Interaction Workspace. To mitigate this situation you must assign three different kinds of permissions to the agent login:
- Execute permissions
- Read permissions
- Write permissions
The following subsections describe how to configure these permissions in the Permissions tab of the specified object. You can choose to configure agents individually by the Person object, or as a group by Access Group. Refer to Framework 8.1 Genesys Administrator Help and Genesys Security Guide for detailed information on how to use Genesys Administrator and Management Framework to configure access permissions
Configuring Execute Permissions
You must grant execute permissions for the Interaction Workspace application to each agent or groups of agents so that Interaction Workspace can connect to Configuration Server to start the application.
Configuring Read Permissions
Agents might require permissions to read from the Application objects that are referenced in the Connection list of the Interaction Workspace application object. They might be required to connect to one of these servers to activate its associated features. The following is a list of items to which an agent might require read access:
- The host of any application objects that are referenced in the Connection list of the Interaction Workspace application object.
- The Person object that corresponds to the agent.
- The Place object that corresponds to the voice channel to which the agent is assigned.
- The DN object that determines the capacity of the channel (Voice, IM). This information is stored in annex of the DN.
- The Switch and the T-Server object to determine the possible channel.
- The Tenant object.
- The Person objects of the Tenant to enable Team Communicator to access the firstname, lastname, and username of internal targets.
- The Skills objects of the Tenant to enable Team Communicator to access the names of Skills.
- The Agent Group objects of the Tenant to enable Team Communicator to access the names of Agent Groups.
- The Routing Point objects of the Tenant to enable Team Communicator to access the number, name, and switch.name of Routing Points.
- The ACD Queue objects of the Tenant to enable Team Communicator to access the number, name, and switch.name of ACD Queues.
- The User Properties of the agent's Tenant, logged in application, and agent's Agent Groups, to read corporate favorites for display in Team Communicator.
- The Business Attributes of the Tenant to enable the Contact module to use Business Attributes.
- The transaction object of the Tenant that can be used for overriding options of the strategy.
- The applications used as Backup servers and configuration Server application to have HA.
- Script objects of the tenant Interaction queue and workbins.
Configuring Write Permissions
If you have configured the agent to store preferences in their Person annex instead of on their local desktop, you must grant that agent write permissions on their Person object. If you have configured your system to prompt for a the agent's phone number at login time (this requires SIP Server), you must grant write access to the agent on the SIP DN in which the agent logs in, to set the request-uri.
