Configuring Genesys Widgets

Genesys Widgets supports multiple widgets including Webchat. You can configure all widgets and services in the same configuration object. When you add new Genesys products and services, you must update your Genesys Widgets configuration to enable those widgets.

After you deploy the Genesys Widgets on your website, configure the CX Widget by defining the global window._genesys Javascript object.

To include the JavaScript script, you can choose one of the following options:

  • Place the script inline on your website; or
  • Place it in a separate JavaScript file, and then include the file on your page.

The following example is a basic view of the global Genesys Widgets configuration object:

<script>
 
        if(!window._genesys)window._genesys = {};
        if(!window._gt)window._gt = [];
 
        window._genesys.widgets = {
 
                main: {},
                webchat: {},
        };
 
</script>
 
// include widgets.min.js after defining your configuration options


The following example is a populated Widget configuration that includes configuration options for Webchat:

Important
Your configuration options must be defined on the page before widgets.min.js is loaded. Failing to do so may result in errors.
<script>
 
        if(!window._genesys)window._genesys = {};
        if(!window._gt)window._gt = [];
 
        window._genesys.widgets = {
                main: {
 
                        theme: "dark",
