Sign up on IrisAgent's Dashboard

  1. Go to the IrisAgent dashboard and sign in either GSuite or Microsoft SSO.SSO
  2. Click on Connect with Zendesk. Give the OAuth permissions and click on Allow. This will automatically connect with both Zendesk tickets and Zendesk Guide.

Install the IrisAgent app into your Zendesk account

  1. Navigate to IrisAgent's listing on the Zendesk Marketplace.
  2. Click on Install and follow the next steps.

Details about IrisAgent's Zendesk integration

  1. IrisAgent uses read write scopes for the OAuth integration with Zendesk.
  2. Out of the box, IrisAgent does not perform any write actions to Zendesk and only reads Zendesk tickets and other data as new tickets come in.
  3. IrisAgent explicitly de-duplicates requests sent to Zendesk to ensure that it doesn't exhaust the quota.
  4. IrisAgent honors your Zendesk's account rate limits and does not make any unnecessary API calls to Zendesk. If in case, it gets a 429 Too Many Requests status code, it backs off and retries as per the official RFC instructions.
  5. There are optional opt-in features of IrisAgent that leverage the write OAuth scope, such as writing automatic tags and adding private notes with AI insights to Zendesk tickets. Customers have to explicitly opt-in to these features. The write actions are performed safely, monitored via audit logs, and can be disabled easily from the UI.

The above steps will complete the installation of IrisAgent. Please email us once these steps are completed, and our team will start setting up the machine learning models for your account.
