Redirect user authentication to a Service Portal

After installing a Virtual Agent messaging integration, you can specify a Service Portal in which end users complete the user authentication step, instead of in their ServiceNow instance. Users working with the virtual agent for the first time complete authentication before continuing with the virtual agent in the messaging application.

Before you begin

Install the Virtual Agent messaging integrations for your instance. The system creates a record in the Provider Auth [provider_auth] table for each integration that you install (Slack, Microsoft Teams, Workplace, or Facebook Messenger). You use the Provider Auth table to specify the Service Portal in which user authentication occurs.

Role required: admin

Procedure

  1. In the navigation filter, type provider_auth.list.
  2. In the Provider Auth table, open the record for the messaging integration you installed.
  3. In the Service Portal field, select the Service Portal in which user authentication occurs.
  4. Click Update.

Result

When users start a conversation with the virtual agent for the first time in the messaging integration, they are redirected to the Service Portal specified for the provider in the Provider Auth table. After they log in to the Service Portal, they are prompted to link their ServiceNow account to the messaging application.
