This topic is a chance to discuss more about the new agent desktop from Cisco - ‘Finesse’. The discussion will be more about generic capabilities of Finesse and how it fits into the UCCX environment. This is a chance to discuss more about the new features introduced into Finesse UCCX to provide a 100% parity with the features of CAD. We can also discuss about the transition from CAD to Finesse – best practices, support for migration, limitations and things to look out for.

With UCCX v11.x there is no Finesse (Agent or Supervisor) Desktop interface supported.

So what is the workaround to force the logout of Finesse IPPAs?

Since there is no ability to 'login' as a Finesse Supervisor to do this.

Hi Chris
For agents logged into Finesse UI, the agent states can be changed by calling the REST API using REST clients like Postman or custom code. I have tested this with both but I haven't tested with agents logged into Finesse IPPA .
I assume, the Finesse IPPA agents also use the same REST APIs hosted in the Finesse server ( I haven't got opportunity to test this so I am going by assumption) .
You can follow the procedure and XML schema mentioned in the URL below :

Hi, 

 

Uccx 11.6 

In the supervisor finesse view we are trying to see the CSQ that the agent is talking on. In CAD we can see their status as well as the CSQ when they are in the talking state. In finesse I don't seem to be able to see this is any live report.

 

Regards,

Paul
