Test the Integration between Salesforce and Bomgar Remote Support

The following steps take place in Salesforce.com and Bomgar and are provided to ensure that the integration works properly. Troubleshooting suggestions are provided with each step in case of failure.

Test Session Key Generation

Generate Session Key

  1. Log into the Bomgar representative console, and then log into Salesforce.com with the same account. If Bomgar and Salesforce.com use different authentication systems, manually assign your Bomgar user to your Salesforce.com user via the User Layout in Salesforce.com.
  2. Open a case in Salesforce.com.
  3. To test client-side session key generation, click the Bomgar Session Key button. This should launch the Bomgar representative console, subsequently opening the session key dialog box.
  4. To test server-side session key generation, click the Generate Session Key button. This should launch a window within Salesforce.com that displays the session key information. In case of failure, make sure the following are true:
    1. The Salesforce.com user account is mapped to a Bomgar user account as described in this guide.
    2. The Salesforce.com API user connection test completes successfully.
    3. The Bomgar Hostname, Username, and Password fields are set correctly in Salesforce.com under Configuration.

Test Bomgar Session Import

Bomgar Session Import

  1. Log into Salesforce.com as an ITIL user or an admin. Use the Bomgar Session Key or Generate Session Key button as described above to start a Bomgar session.
  2. End the session from the representative console and close any surveys and/or session end messages on the representative and/or customer sides of the session.
  3. Refresh the Salesforce.com case from which the session key was generated, scroll down, and check the Bomgar Sessions list. There should be an entry for the recent session. If not, make sure the following are true:
    1. The API user connection test completes successfully.
    2. There are no Bomgar errors reported for your Salesforce.com instance in the Bomgar /login > Management > Outbound Events list.
    3. Make sure no errors are shown in Salesforce.com under the Error Logs tab, which can be seen when the Bomgar Integration tab is selected.
