Installing the Pulse Plugin

The Genesys Knowledge Center Plugin for Pulse provides access to Knowledge Center Server statistics such as KPI, user activity, trending topics, like and dislike trends, and activity types.

Install Genesys Knowledge Center Plugin for Pulse

Components required for Pulse plugin come pre-integrated into every deployment of Genesys Knowledge Center Server. So you do not need any additional steps to install them, please proceed directly to the configuration.

World map widget requires access to the internet to generate a map image. Public map services are used for this purpose. If you would like to limit access to the internet you can remove this widget from the dashboard or use your own generation service (in this case, a compatible tile service provider must be used).
Since July 11, 2016 Map Quest had changed their terms of the service for tile service they provide. It resulted in an error message displayed instead of the map in the Map widget of dashboard.

To restore the map functionality you need to make the following changes in <server installation folder>/server/plugins/gkc-dashboard/_site/app/panels/bettermap/module.js :
Old code:

L.tileLayer('http://otile1.mqcdn.com/tiles/1.0.0/map/ {z}/{x}/{y}.jpg', {
attribution: '"Data, imagery and map information provided by MapQuest, '+
'OpenStreetMap <http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright> and contributors, ODbL',

New code:

L.tileLayer('http://a.tile.openstreetmap.org/{z}/{x}/{y}.png', {
attribution: 'Map data © <a href="http://openstreetmap.org">OpenStreetMap</a> contributors, ' +
