CCAC - Microphone Permissions in Browser
This article reviews how to give browsers the required microphone permissions for WebRTC usage.
In order for agents to successfully take and make calls using WebRTC (the softphone within Xima's Contact Center Agent Client 'CCAC'), the agent will need to authorize the microphone permissions within their browser. When logging into CCAC for the first time as a WebRTC licensed agent, you should be prompted for this permission automatically. If that permission is accidentally missed or rejected, please review the browser based documentation below to get the microphone permissions restored.
