About this integration


You can integrate third-party systems with Service Apps in many ways. The method you select will depend on business requirements, architectural and security constraints as well as the characteristics specific to each third-party application or service. You can use the REST, CSV, Online CSV data sources and the HTML Script widget.

This document describes a standard integration process that has already been implemented in a customer context.

Integration Summary

This integration is used to add the Call Dropdown list.png, Call icon.png and Chat icon.png buttons to an Product name - ev sas.png application so users can launch the Skype client installed on their workstation with one click. Users can then automatically make a call and/or display an instant message window with a predefined contact.

        Example documentation icon EN.png  You can create and configure shared Skype accounts and let multiple users sign into the same account at the same time (on different computers). Users of your applications can then call these contacts (e.g. Service Desk, HR Services, Home) at any time.

Note: Users should choose the Chat option to change contacts and call or send an instant message to another contact.
