Since version 4.2 Odin Business Automation Standard (OBAS) provides integration with Kayako Fusion.
A Helpdesk side module provides the option of a transparent log in to the Kayako Support Center for OBAS customers. Customers can log in directly from the OBAS Customer Panel to the customer trouble tickets section of the Kayako Support Center, without needing to enter their user name/password.
Note: The php-soap package must be installed on the Kayako server first.
For successful installation and functionality, the Helpdesk module must be placed in the same directory where Kayako Fusion files are located. Accordingly, kayakofusion.php and the __swift directory will be in the same directory.
Download kayakofusion.php and modify it: specify the passphrase to be used for envelope security header generation. To do this, you must define the HSPC_SECRET constant. This particular passphrase must be then specified in the OBAS module setup. For example, if you specify the following:
... then the phrase mysecretkey must be specified in
Support Manager > Setup, in the External Helpdesk Integration part of the form, in the
Passphrasefield. Make sure that the passphrase is specified correctly in the OBAS module since the Helpdesk module will only accept envelopes with a security header containing the passphrase specified in the kayakofusion.php file.
Passphrases must match on both sides, otherwise integration with Kayako Fusion will be not possible.
Checking Integration with Kayako Fusion
After you define the necessary constants in the kayakofusion.php file, you can check the connection to Kayako Fusion:
Account Director > Support Manager > Setupand select External Helpdesk Integration.
kayakofusion.phpfile URL and the
passphrase (HSPC_SECRET). Save changes.
