Tenant Settings

Manage your Webex Connect account settings for your organization. Only account owners can make changes to tenant settings

Time Zone

This setting determines the time zone setting for your Webex Connect tenant. Once configured and/or updated it applies to all the users of the concerned Webex Connect tenant. When the time zone is updated here, it affects the following:

  • Timestamp in the debug console logs and flow debug logs.
  • Timestamp for delivery receipts.



Webex Connect platform doesnโ€™t support changing/applying the time zone setting only for reports, both at tenant level and user level.

Based on your selection, your account time is displayed on the UI of the platform wherever time has to be selected and the selection a user makes is in the time zone selected for the respective Webex Connect tenant account.


Tenant Level Time Zone Settings


Date Format

The date and time format defaults to the system default format of YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:SS in 24-hour format, irrespective of the timezone.

Daylight Saving

Webex Connect supports daylight saving by enabling you to send notifications on the time they were scheduled for, irrespective of the time difference. The events can be scheduled for daylight savings. If applicable to your time zone, the daylight savings are automatically taken into account.

For example, if you have a job scheduled to run at 9:30 am every day in the UK time zone, even on 27th October when daylight savings are set to roll back in the UK, the job continues to run at 9:30 am. The same will hold true when the daylight savings start in March next year.

The time zone offset will also reflect the current daylight savings. For example, a timestamp showing the UTC +1:00 offset for the UK time zone with daylight savings 2019-09-25T13:33:00.538+01:00.

Profile Key

Profile Key is used to identify and authenticate with Profile APIs.



Only the tenant Owner, Full Access Users, and Limited Access Users can view and copy the Profile Key.


Profile Key

Help Desk

The Allow Webex Connect Help Desk Team to access my/this Webex Connect Tenant option enables you to provide access to the help desk users to cross-launch into the tenant application for providing support. This option is enabled by default.

If it is disabled for your tenant, select Allow Webex Connect Help Desk Team to access my/this Webex Connect Tenant to enable this function.



Once this is enabled, the help desk users can cross launch into the tenant application based on the access level they are provided in the Admin console โ€“ read-only (can only view), full access (access the application completely), or full access with decrypt (access the application completely along with the ability to decrypt the logs).

All the activities performed by the help desk users during cross launch will be captured in the audit logs. The help desk userโ€™s id will be in the format: + ""+ + ""+โ€œhelp_desk@โ€ +.



This section is visible only to tenant owners. Partners and help desk users cannot see this section.

You can enable the Allow decryption access to help desk users option to permit decryption of the Descriptive Logs for all the support access users irrespective of their role.

Partner and Tenant User Cross Launch

Partners can use the Webex Connect quick links to directly cross-launch the Webex Connect platform for a Contact Center Business Unit (CCBU) customer from the Control Hub. The Webex Connect link is visible under Contact Center Suite, only if digital channels are enabled and the tenant provisioning is completed in the Control Hub. The following image illustrates where the quick links are visible.

A tenant owner created as part of tenant provisioning will also be able to cross-launch directly into the Webex Connect platform from Control Hub.

Email Domains

Enter the list of allowed domains for your tenant. This functionality helps in limiting the user creation to only the specified domains. Admins will not be able to add users from any other domains. If no domain is entered in this field, all domains will be allowed.



The domain names will be considered as an exact match; partial matches will not be considered. For example: even if @connect.com is an allowed domain, @abc.connect.com will have to be added as an allowed domain to be considered.



When an admin tries to add a user who does not belong to the allowed domains, an error message โ€œUser domain not in allowed listโ€ will be displayed.

Secure handling of Inbound media files

Manage your Webex Connect account settings for your organization. Only account owners can make changes to tenant settings.

Inbound Media Handling on Messaging Channels



This section is available only when the Secure Media Handling feature is enabled for your tenant. Please reach out to your account manager if you would like to enable this feature for your tenant.

When you use Webex Connect for managing customer interactions over messaging channels such as Apple Messages for Business, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, etc., by default the incoming attachments and media files from customers a persistent publicly accessible URL is generated by the channel provider (such as in case of Facebook Messenger) or by Webex Connect (for WhatsApp RCS and In-App Messages/Live Chat).

If you want to limit the public accessibility timeframe for these files, you can enable the option to use short-lived URLs under the 'Tenant Settings' section as shown below.

When you enable it, short-lived URLs are generated for all the inbound media/attachments across all messaging channels for a the specified time.

To enable secure media handling on your tenant:

  1. Go to Tenant Settings.

  2. Under the Inbound Media Handling on Messaging Channels section, select Enabled.

  3. Enter the Expiry Time and select Hours or Days for Single Select Menu. You can select between 4 hours to 7 days. The default is 12 hours.

  4. Click Update.

After the short-lived URL is expired, authentication will be required (in the header of the request, with header key as "x-imi-connect-media-api-key") to fetch data from the URL.

One of the following two authorizations will be accepted depending on where you are trying to access the media files from:

  1. โ€˜Profile API / Media Access Key' can be used to fetch data from URL (Applicable for all channels including in-app messaging).

  2. Additional credentials for accessing media/attachments for In-App messaging channels - Appโ€™s Client key or JWT Auth key can be used to fetch data from URL.
