What the Meya integration looks like in Front
You have to register a webhook rule with Front in order for Meya to be aware of certain events that take place in Front.
If you change inboxes, make sure to update the rule accordingly.
The rule and plugin endpoints
Meya hosts a plugin that can be used to gain visibility into your user and bot, while also providing some basic controls.
You can customize the buttons that appear in the bot control section.
Customizing bot control buttons
You can assign the conversation using the
human.transfer component. The component has three optional properties.
By agent ID:
By agent email:
Optional. Default is random agent
Text to display to the user.
Private text only the agent will see. Markdown is supported.
The two tabs in the code block below demonstrate how to use the
human.transfer component with Front.

By default, the bot will pause when the conversation is assigned to an agent. It will automatically unpause when the conversation is assigned to nobody. You can adjust the default assignment behaviour.
- Pause bot: You can enable/disable whether the bot is paused when the chat is assigned to an agent.
- Cancel active flows: Cancel any active flows when the chat is assigned to an agent. If this is unchecked, users can resume existing flows once the agent has assigned the chat back to the bot
