The Configure attachment types for admins via content profiles release is temporarily disabled. For more information, see the Genesys Community.

You can define and use a supported content profile in a web messaging deployment to enable the exchange of file attachments between your online customers and business. To use supported content profiles in web messaging, ensure to configure and enable supported content profiles in the:

  • Messenger Configuration, where you can enable or disable inbound attachments from your online customers.
  • Messenger Deployment, where you can select the valid content profile to determine the permitted inbound and outbound attachments.

    Your existing Messenger deployment configurations would have been automatically assigned with a default content profile with the naming convention WebMessaging Legacy Default. If this is present, this content profile is created by the system and includes image file-types as a baseline to ensure continuity with your existing operations. You can change or remove this content profile at any point in time.
