September 28, 2022AWS.png

Resolved Issues

  • In WebChat Widget, the proactive chat is now reset in the userData and the isProactive value is no longer sent as true in the reactive chat requests.

What's New

  • All Google Fonts API references have been removed as part of version 9.0.017.33, and Widgets now refers to Google Fonts from the Genesys Hosted Repository when the main.downloadGoogleFont configuration option is set to true. As customers are unable to upgrade to the 9.0.017.33 version without a change in their configuration, the configuration property main.googleFontUrl has been introduced to provide customers with the option to select the closest region URL where the Genesys web fonts are securely hosted. Note: By default, Genesys web fonts are loaded from the North America (East) region. (CXW-302)

  • In WebChat, when sending markdown rich media messages that contain URLs with query parameters, the HTML target attribute is now properly added to the chat transcript.
