Is virtual agent going to be available to external users i.e., unlicensed users who want support from the JSM portal?

Hi @Girish Reddy

The Virtual Agent is currently available through the Slack experience, where any member of your Slack organization can interact with it.

In the future we do plan on making the Virtual Agent available in other experiences, and supporting unlicensed users is definitely a possibility!

Hi there!

My organization can't wait to start using AI, however we too are a Microsoft Teams organization, so I'll definitely be on the lookout for the Teams beta.

Is there any way for my organization to prepare for when the Teams integration is released, such as being able to create intents without integrating with Slack, or something along those lines?

Hi @Alexander Gorham! You can get started with "JSM Chat for Teams", which will bring your service experience into Microsoft Teams:

When the Virtual Agent is available for Teams it will be added as a part of that same app for JSM Premium customers.

@Andrew Homeyer is there any timeline for Teams availability?

-Does Atlassian AI come into the picture at all if the end-user's words trigger an intent with high confidence? Is it only for times where an intent can't be matched?


-How can we control which Confluence spaces the Atlassian AI can parse to get answers to end-user questions?

What members of a Teams tenant can interact with the agent? Can access be restricted, and do people require any kind of Atlassian license, or just an Atlassian account that is added as a customer of a JSM project?

Hello, Is it possible to use the chatbot in Slack in your own private channel? At the moment, the requests of all members are displayed in the test channel, which makes it quite confusing. However, we would only use the chatbot to query the connected knowledge base from Confluence. No tickets should be created here in Jira Service Management, as only the agents should ask the chatbot questions. The question here would also be whether the workflow can be configured for this? A direct integration into the ticket system to first ask for a solution to incoming customer questions with internal information would also be helpful. Many thanks in advance. Regards.

I can't find the answers to the unanswered QA questions, so I'll just repeat it here instead:

1. Will we be able to configure the Assist bot in Slack moving forward? Right now, the profile picture, name and tone is really dull and "robotic".

We would like to personalize our bot and give it a "personality" even if that is just a name and image, and not a tone. (But tone would be amazing).

2. Are there any plans to reduce the noise from the bot?
Right now it can spam the reporter with like 4 message immediately, blowing up notifications. 
I would like to see options to remove/customize the noise.

Thanks in advance!

Our instance of JSM does not show the "Summary" button. I do see the AI button in the editor, so it is activated. Is there any settings needed for making the "Summary" button show up?

Our agency uses neither Slack nor Teams, will there be another way to take advantage of this feature without those two platforms?
