After installing the 8×8 integration, the Genesys Cloud administrator must add, configure, and grant access to the Genesys Cloud Integration for 8×8.

Before you add and configure the 8×8 integration in Genesys Cloud, you must configure the following:

  • A SIP Trunk to PBX platform in 8×8. Contact your 8×8 representative for trunk setup details.
  • A Genesys Cloud SCIM implementation that automates the management of user identities between your identity management system and Genesys Cloud. Configure the following field mappings to ensure that the call transfers between Genesys Cloud and 8×8 work as expected: 
     Directory field SCIM field Genesys Cloud field

    phoneNumbers[type eq “eightbyeight”].value


For more information about how to implement SCIM in your environment, see About Genesys Cloud SCIM (Identity Management).

These permissions allow you to view the integration users who have been populated via SCIM. Provide the following permissions to your users depending on how they access and use the integration:

    Permissions Required/Optional Description

    Integration > 8×8 > View

    Integration > unifiedCommunications > View

    Note: If you have a user who does not use the integration and you want to hide the badges, remove the Integration > unifiedCommunications > View permission from the user’s roles.
