The Call Center Definition .xml file is a configuration file that is used to define a set of parameters that enables the Adapter.

  3. After updating the CTI Adapter URL value, click Save.
  4. (Optional) Enter a value of 1 for the VCC Single Sign On Authentication Enabled option.
The VCC Single Sign On Authentication Enabled option is only possible when:

  • The VCC Agent Login ID and the Salesforce User ID are the same.

See the Specifying Field Value Parameters topic for more information about these parameters.

To edit the Call Center Definition .xml file from another screen in Salesforce, from Setup navigate to Customize > Call Center > Call Centers and then follow the same steps as above.

After finishing the upgrade, instruct all agents to clear their browser cache before starting their next session.
