Support for Open CTI adapter

If you want to use the Open CTI adapter, ensure that it is installed in your Salesforce organization on which BMC Remedyforce application is installed. You must configure the Open CTI in a way that when a call is received the BMCServiceDesk__CTIPage is opened. The BMCServiceDesk__CTIPage uses the ANI query string parameter to get the caller's phone number. For example, BMCServiceDesk__CTIPage?ANI=<caller number>. 

For this to work properly, the phone number of a caller must be correctly populated in the User object. This CTIPage page locates the caller based on the phone number and redirects appropriately to Remedyforce Console.

If your Open CTI is using a different query string parameter, to pass the caller number you can use the CTI Caller Parameter custom setting to configure the required parameter.
