This feature enables Bomgar to automatically update the appropriate KACE tickets with Bomgar session information (e.g. chat transcripts, system information, and session recording links). Once configured, after a Bomgar session that was started from KACE is ended, the details for that session will be automatically entered in the KACE ticket for the session by Bomgar.
Note: This feature requires a minimum version of Bomgar 13.1 and enterprise licensing (if running Bomgar software prior to 14.2).
