What are the best practices for configuring and using B2C Service Chat?


B2C Service Chat
Oracle B2C Service


The following elements and features define requirements and configurations to ensure that your B2C Service Chat implementation runs in as efficient and stable manner as possible:

Environmental Configuration: Ensure that your environment is configured in accordance with our Infrastructure guide, available from Answer ID 31: Oracle B2C Service Infrastructure Requirements

Connectivity: Ensure that your site has sound connectivity, internally and externally. Oracle RightNow Chat is much more sensitive to connectivity issues than most other applications due to its requirements for continuous connectivity.

The Environmental Configuration Guide, referenced above, defines specifications for success in this area. In addition, the Workstation and Network Data Collector (oscinfo.bat file) is a useful tool in collecting information about your agent workstations and network performance. The oscinfo.bat file can be downloaded from Answer ID 2412: Workstation and Network Data Collector.

Current Oracle B2C Service Version: Ensure that you are running the latest version of the Oracle B2C Service solution. Each version release includes several improvements which contribute to the overall usability and stability of your Oracle RightNow Chat application.

Creating Incidents from Chats: Refer to the 'Creating incidents from chat sessions' section in the online documentation. Flexible Incident Editing - Options are found in the Chat workspace.
