Anywhere365 Authentication for Snapper

Anywhere365 Authentication allows users to login with their own Microsoft 365 credentials with various Anywhere365 products. In addition to convenience, this also provides additional security via multi-factor authentication.

Warning: Snapper, Inflight Wallboard and Web Wallboard all use the same authentication method per UCC A Unified Contact Center, or UCC, is a queue of interactions (voice, email, IM, etc.) that are handled by Agents. Each UCC has its own settings, IVR menus and Agents. Agents can belong to one or several UCCs and can have multiple skills (competencies). A UCC can be visualized as a contact center “micro service”. Customers can utilize one UCC (e.g. a global helpdesk), a few UCC’s (e.g. for each department or regional office) or hundreds of UCC’s (e.g. for each bed at a hospital). They are interconnected and can all be managed from one central location. service. In other words, if Anywhere365 Authentication is enabled for one application it is also enabled for the other applications using that service. The configuration of Web Wallboard is handled by Dialogue Cloud, but if also Snapper and/or Inflight Wallboard are used, these client applications must each be configured for this method of authentication.

To set up Snapper authentication do the following:

  1. Make sure the prerequisites have been fulfilled. See Prerequisites.
  2. Open your Snapper application.
  3. In the Settings panel, select the General tab.

  1. In the Security section, enter the authentication URL provided by Anywhere365 (see Prerequisites).
  2. Only after entering the URL, toggle the Access Control option to On.
    Warning: It is important to first enter the appropriate URL before turning Access Control on. If Access Control is switched on when the URL is empty, Snapper will attempt a sign in that it can’t validate. If this happens, you will need to turn off Access Control in Snapper’s Appdata config.xml file.
  1. (Optional) Enable Access Control Browser. By default Snapper uses a built-in mini browser for handling the Microsoft 365 user login interaction. If a Windows Conditional Access Policy does not allow this (for example if a browser extension "Windows Accounts" is needed). Enabling this toggle will use the default Windows desktop browser to handle the end-user login interaction instead of the built-in mini browser. After succesful login, Snapper will attempt to close the opened tab in the default browser used for login.

  2. Make sure all intended users are available in Microsoft Entra ID Formerly known as Azure Active Directory (or Azure AD, or AAD), as they would otherwise not be able to open Snapper.

Note: For unattended installation, these settings should be included:
FeatureToggleAccessControlUrl="AUTHENTICATION URL", where the AUTHENTICATION URL is the one provided by Anywhere365.
FeatureToggleAccessControlBrowser="true" (Optional setting if the default Windows desktop browser needs to be used for the user login prompt)
