Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM Configuration

When Symbee Connect is integrated with Dynamics 365, the Symbee Connect Dynamics 365 Fusion provides the following functionality:


Prior to following these steps, this guide assumes the following pre-requisites have already been completed:

  1. Your Amazon Connect instance has already been set up with the appropriate phone numbers, contact flows, routing profiles and call queues.
  2. Your Symbee Connect instance has been set up and configured with your Amazon Connect instance details.
  3. You have an Dynamics 365 Environment configured.

Embedding Symbee Connect within Dynamics 365 per this guide, is only supported in an environment where SAML Single Sign-on (SSO) is enabled. This is due to Dynamics 365 blocking the login window popped by Symbee Connect when SSO is not enabled.**

Whitelisting Dynamics 365 Domain in Amazon Connect

Before you can embed the Symbee Connect within Dynamics 365, you will need to add your Dynamics 365 domain to the whitelist of trusted domains in your Amazon Connect Instance.

An example URL:

https://< dynamicsinstancename >

Please refer to the reference guide on how to Whitelist a URL in Amazon Connect.
