Frequently asked questions

This section provides answers to frequently asked questions (FAQ) about BMC Virtual Chat.

 How can I make my company logo appear instead of the BMC Virtual Chat logo?

The default logo file, named bmclogo.gif, is located in the /resources/img/ folder on the mid tier server. First, move your company logo to the /resources/img/ folder. Then, use the Self Service Portal Configuration tool to modify the Application Portal - Interface to point to your logo. The logo definition is the first line of the entry.

<logo>resources/img/bmclogo.gif</logo>

For more information, see Changing the logo in the application portal.

 How do I prevent the title in BMC Knowledge Management articles from being searched?

In the first line of the BMC Knowledge Management Virtual Chat Query, set the keytermsrelevancy value to  0  (zero) and theresort value to  false .

[vaq:xmlresults maxrows='10' keytermsrelevancy='0' keytermselement='title' resort='false']
