Amazon AWS Integration

Amazon Web Services (AWS) integration accounts let you configure your contact center with S3, for storing audio and screen recordings, or with Lambda, for creating and executing custom and/or existing functions.

These integration options must be enabled for your contact center by the service provider. To support BPO operations, multiple integration accounts are possible.

Amazon AWS S3 Properties

Amazon AWS S3 integration account properties


Amazon Web Services (AWS) S3 can be used for storing audio and screen recordings, where files are uploaded to or downloaded from an Amazon S3 account for storage or playback. S3 access credentials are stored in integration accounts in order to enable Interaction Records Search playback for recordings stored in S3.

To support BPO operations, multiple integration accounts are possible.


Note the following:


For more information about using this type of integration, see the following tutorials:

Type

The type of integration account: Amazon AWS

Name

The unique name of this integration account. It is helpful to have a descriptive name if your contact center uses multiple integration accounts of the same type.

Use private S3 storage

You can use this option to set up an S3-compatible private storage. For more information see Appendix: Setting up Private S3 Storage.

If you are setting up AWS S3 storage, do not check this box.

Url

This is the URL path to private S3 storage. The URL must be specified if Use private S3 storage is enabled.

If you are setting up AWS S3 storage, leave this empty. The URL field is available only if using private S3 storage.

Region

The geographic region in which your S3 bucket exists. You may choose a region from the drop-down menu or type one in. It must be set in the format shown in the drop-down menu (i.e., “us-west-2” and not “US West (Oregon)”).

Access Key ID

The Access Key ID (e.g., AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE) of the user who has administrator access to AWS services (i.e., in the user’s permissions, the user should be added to the Admin group that has the attached policy called “AdministratorAccess”).

You can find the access key ID in the IAM Dashboard > Access Management > Users > Security Credentials tab of the user.

AWS access keys always consist of an access key ID and a secret access key. The Access Key ID is part of your AWS access key, a security credential created with Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) that allows you to sign programmatic requests that you make to AWS if you use the AWS SDKs, REST, or Query API operations. The AWS SDKs use your access keys to sign requests for you.

Secret Key

The Secret Key (e.g., wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY) of the user who has administrator access to AWS services (i.e., in the user’s permissions, the user should be added to the Admin group that has the attached policy called “AdministratorAccess”).

Secret keys are only shown when the user is created. If you do not have the secret key, you should generate a new one in the IAM Dashboard > Access Management > Users > Security Credentials tab of the user.

The Secret Key is the other part of your AWS access key. Referred to as a secret access key, the Secret ID is a security credential created with Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) that allows you to sign programmatic requests that you make to AWS if you use the AWS SDKs, REST, or Query API operations. The AWS SDKs use your access keys to sign requests for you.

S3 bucket

The exact name of the S3 bucket that stores your data (e.g., photos, videos, documents, etc.) on the cloud. In order to upload or download audio and screen recordings to S3, you must specify the S3 bucket that will be used to hold your data.

For more information about using this type of integration, see the Amazon AWS Lambda Integration Guide.

Type

Type is the type of integration account.

Name

Name is the unique name of this integration account. It is helpful to have a descriptive name if your tenant uses multiple integration accounts of the same type.

Access Key ID

The Access Key ID (e.g., AKIAIOSFODNN7EXAMPLE) is part of your AWS access key, a security credential created with Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) that allows you to sign programmatic requests that you make to AWS if you use the AWS SDKs, REST, or Query API operations. The AWS SDKs use your access keys to sign requests for you.

AWS access keys always consist of an access key ID and a secret access key.

Secret Key

The Secret Key (e.g., wJalrXUtnFEMI/K7MDENG/bPxRfiCYEXAMPLEKEY) is the other part of your AWS access key. Referred to as a secret access key, the Secret ID is a security credential created with Amazon Identity and Access Management (IAM) that allows you to sign programmatic requests that you make to AWS if you use the AWS SDKs, REST, or Query API operations.

Bot / Chat Suggestions Engine Integration

Bot/chat suggestions engine integration accounts allow you to use third-party bots to automate chat conversations, provide self-service options, intelligently route customers to agents, and provide meaningful suggestions to an agent during active chat sessions.

This version of Bright Pattern Contact Center supports the following types of bot/chat integration: AWS Lex and Watson Assistant.

See How to Add a Bot/Chat Suggestions Engine Integration Account.


AWS Lex Properties

After you add an AWS Lex account, the Properties dialog will appear. In Properties, you enter the credentials of your Lex bot instance. This allows Bright Pattern to access your bot and use it in chat interactions.

For more information, see Tutorials for Admins, section Set up an AWS Lex Integration Account.

If the credentials are invalid, go back to the Url property and make sure you’ve entered it exactly as explained. Test until you see the success dialog: "Account credentials appear to be valid."

Lastly, be sure to click Apply at the bottom of the screen to save your account properties.


Watson Assistant (Legacy) Properties

Watson Assistant (Legacy) is the legacy version of IBM Watson Assistant that uses IBM's V1 runtime API and username/password authentication.

Previously, Watson Assistant was called Watson Conversation, and credentials for Watson Conversation included username and password. IBM has since renamed it Watson Assistant and changed its credentials from username/password to API key.

To integrate a legacy Watson Conversation bot, add a Watson Assistant (Legacy) account and edit the Properties of your bot instance as follows. This allows Bright Pattern to access your bot and use it in chat interactions.

For more information, see Tutorials for Admins, section Set up a Watson Assistant Integration Account.

Name

The name of this integration account.

Type

By default, the type is “Watson Assistant (Legacy)” because you selected this type when adding the account.

To find this ID, go to IBM Watson Assistant > Skills, and click View API details.

Please note that earlier versions of Bright Pattern Contact Center (earlier than version 5.3.21) required the URL to be in the format “<Legacy v1 Workspace URL>?version=2017-05-26”.

Speech To Text Integration (STT)

Speech To Text (STT) integration allows your contact center to use speech-to-text functionality to transcribe voice calls and save the transcriptions to interaction records. Full-text transcripts are searchable and include sentiment attributes (if Natural Language Understanding is enabled).

Bright Pattern integrates with STT providers such as IBM Watson and Google.


Select the type of STT integration


Google Properties

Google's Cloud Speech API converts audio to text. In the Properties dialog, enter the credentials of your Google synchronous STT instance as follows. This allows Bright Pattern to access your STT resource and use it in interactions.

Please note: Google STT requires a payment method to be attached to the account; without this, the STT service would silently not work, and there would be an error in the Google API dashboard.

Type

By default, “Google synchronous STT” because you selected this type when adding the account.

Use phone model

When enabled, Use phone model allows you to use the Cloud Speech API’s enhanced model for phone calls; the setting may be useful for conversational IVR scenarios. Note that this setting is disabled by default.
