Integrating IrisGPT Chatbot on your Zendesk Help Center


IrisAgent's IrisGPT Chatbot can power search and Q&A engine on your Zendesk Help Center to deflect customer queries and reduce the number of tickets handled by support agents.

Installation Guide

  1. Navigate to the Customize Design tab in your Zendesk Help Center. This can be found under Zendesk Guide > Guide Admin > Customize Design.
  2. Edit your theme. You can either add a new theme by selecting Add theme and making a copy of your Live theme by selecting the three dots > Copy. If you would like to edit your existing theme directly, click on Customize under your Live theme.
  3. In order to add the IrisGPT Chatbot to your Zendesk Help Center, you will need to edit the code. After clicking on the Customize button in the previous step, Click Edit Code in the bottom right corner:
