Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital Messaging

Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital provides software platform with Messaging capabilities which enables businesses to communicate with their customers. Messaging is an asynchronous communication. Unlike a session based chat where the chat is closed after the participants disconnect the dialog, in Messaging, the End User can resume a conversation thread at anytime and the participants will have a view of all previous messages exchanged as part of the conversation.

There are two ways to integrate your business with Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital Messaging:

  1. Built-in Messaging using Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital Messaging SDK
  2. Custom Messaging Integration using Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital APIs

Built-in Messaging (Messaging SDK)

🚧

IMPORTANT: The current Messaging SDK has been deprecated and will not be available after 31st March, 2024. The new Messaging SDK will be launched soon.

For more information contact support at https://support.avaya.com

Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital provides the Messaging SDK which allows your client application to access the built-in messaging capabilities. This is a direct client side integration where your client application running on your customer's (user) client devices will be directly interacting with Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital by embedding the provided Messaging SDK.

The Messaging SDK Introduction section explains the steps required to achieve this integration in detail.

Custom Messaging Integration

If your client application is already integrated with any other messaging services or your customers use third-party messaging providers, and you want to utilize Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital Messaging capabilities to handle messaging interactions, you can use the Digital Async Messaging APIs provided by Avaya Experience Platform™ to integrate your messaging providers. This is a backend server side integration where we are integrating the existing messaging providers your business was already using with Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital services. Typically, you will need to write an application that can transform requests, events and messages between the existing messaging provider and Avaya Experience Platform™ Digital. We refer this application as a Connector and it can either run as part of the existing messaging provider infrastructure (if the messaging provider provides such integration capabilities) or hosted as a standalone service.

The Custom Messaging Integration section explains about this integration in detail.
