Microsoft Teams Integration Account
Configuring a Microsoft Teams integration account allows your contact center to use an enterprise-level communications channel that comes with chat and call capabilities, user-presence visibility, and directory access during service interactions with customers.
Please note that your contact center is allowed only one instance of a Microsoft Teams integration account. If you wish to create a different Microsoft Teams integration account, you must delete the existing instance.
Deleting an existing Microsoft Teams integration account will disable access for all users in the account. Upon creating a new Microsoft Teams integration account, all users in the account will need to re-enable Teams integration in their Agent Desktop user profiles.
How to Add a Microsoft Teams Integration Account
- In the Contact Center Administrator application, go to section Configuration > Call Center Configuration > Integration Accounts.
- Click + to add a Microsoft Teams integration account.
- Complete the account properties (see full descriptions below).
- Click Apply at the bottom of the screen to save your changes.
The properties of the Microsoft Teams integration account are described as follows.

Your Microsoft Azure registered app's Object ID
