1. Registering VCC Live Archiver in the VCC Live Application
In order to allow VCC Live Archiver retrieve data —such as your call recordings and CDR logs— from the VCC Live application, you need to connect the two. This includes the followings:
Registering your IP address(es) in the VCC Live application. This will allow VCC Live Archiver installed on your workstations —inside the range of IP addresses you enter— to seamlessly communicate with VCC Live’s servers.
Creating an application token in the VCC Live application. This token will enable your copy of VCC Live Archiver to interact with the VCC Live application.
1.2 Creating a Token
- VCC Live: from the VCC Live menu, select Contact Center > Global Settings.
- Select the Database API tab.
- In the IP filters textbox, insert the IP address, IP range or domain from where you want to access VCC Live Archiver.
- Press New token button to create a new token. You may need to scroll down to see the button.
- Enter an application name.
- Enter resource references you want to use. Text in regular expressions are escaped. Asterisk (*) is replaced with (.*), question mark (?) is replaced with ([^/]+). See Database API references.
- Press Create button to generate your token.
- Make sure to write down this token, for example, by copy-pasting it to your clipboard, notepad or a text editor software.
Warning: Once you close the New token dialog box, you won’t be able to return to it to make changes or get your token again. Therefore, ensure you make a note of your token before closing this dialog window.
