Our approach is to integrate natively with Zendesk Support. This means the bot needs an admin account in Zendesk Support to act as your virtual agent. This article includes the preparation needed before connecting your bot to Zendesk Support.
The preparation involves:
|❗ If you already have a virtual agent with us working in Zendesk, you can use the same Zendesk account for your ticket bot and just connect the ticket bot to that account.|
Creating an email for your bot
Every account in Zendesk must be registered with a unique email (an email that’s not been used with another Zendesk account).
