This document shows an example of what needs to be done in Intercom to make it integration-ready with an endpoint in your ONEiO subscription.
For any help with the below please don't hesitate to reach out at email@example.com.
If you want ONEiO to post replies into Intercom they need to come on behalf of an Intercom admin user, a teammate. You can either dedicate an existing user account or create a standalone (recommended).
Follow the steps below and add the email of the new admin user you want to add:
Then click on the name of the user and you'll be redirected to the user page. You can retrieve the admin ID from the URL:
The minimum permission set required for this function is to be able to access conversations, either all of them or filtered on a team level. Once you have decided on a user, copy the ID (easily visible from the browser address bar) of the user and keep it handy for the stage when building the routing rule in ONEiO.
To be able to interact with Intercom API, ONEiO needs a token. To generate a token, we first need to create an app in the Intercom Developer Hub.
Once you are logged in, click on "Your apps" page from the navbar and create a new app:
From here you will need to:
- Generate an Access token and set the Permissions
- Select the API Version
Intercom automatically creates the Access token. All you need to do is copy and paste it into ONEiO's Intercom endpoint and define the permission scope.
The permission scope would depend on your use case. The setup necessary for integrating Conversations, Tickets, Users and Companies is shown below:
Now that you have your token ready it can be copied to the ONEiO app Intercom Endpoint.
After creating the app we need to change the API version to "Unstable". This is necessary for the polling of Tickets.
Note: if you are not interested in Intercom tickets but only conversations, you can select Intercom's latest stable version (2.9).
