Integrating with Microsoft Lync

Review note

May 2019_This topic and its child topics are visible only to bmc-contributors.


Microsoft Lync integration with BMC Virtual Chat is a legacy feature. This feature is available only if you enabled it before upgrading to BMC Virtual Chat 9.1.02.

Microsoft Lync is a communications platform that enables users to communicate using various methods and devices through one common interface. You can integrate BMC Virtual Chat with Microsoft Lync so your self-service users and support agents can access the BMC Virtual Chat application from whatever device they choose. 

This section describes the steps you must perform together with your Microsoft Lync Administrator  to integrate your BMC Virtual Chat application with Microsoft Lync, so that self-services users can use Microsoft Lync to chat with virtual and live agents.

In version 9.1.01, you can enable support agents to launch a Lync session from the Support Agent Console. For more information, see Defining applications for support agents.

    One of our customers is looking for the integration of MS Lync with ITSM and currently, they do not have BMC Virtual chat server installed. What are the prerequisites from Remedy side to fulfill this requirement? Are there additional licenses required to be purchased?
