Agent Logins are unique codes defined within a Switch and assigned to agents. They identify which agent is working at which Place during a particular working session.
The configuration of Agent Logins in the Configuration Database must match exactly the configuration of those Agent Logins in the switching system. Before adding or deleting a particular Agent Login, make sure that the same change was made in the database of the switching system.
When you specify Agent Logins as objects in a Switch, they are not associated with any particular agents. For information about how to assign Agent Logins to agents, refer to Creating Agents.

- The Switches list displays when you select Agent Logins in Configuration Manager. To access the Agent Logins list, you must first select a Switch object and then an Agent Logins folder.
