Can I have a Glip bot in multiple companies / Glip instances?
Tags: getting started
Feb 1, 2018 at 12:56pm   •   4 replies  •  0 likes

I have the following use case:

* A user from Glip (it could be any Glip) needs to be able to interact with 'our app'.

* Our app needs to update a DB and respond to the user based on what the user entered.

* I'm not sure if it's possible to have a bot that would be integrated in multiple Glips?

* If so, would there be a way to have a button 'Add bot to Glip' on our app? At the moment, I see that button in the dev console and it seems like this would link it to the corresponding glip VS the current dev account?

* If it's not possible with a bot or if there's something more efficient, how could we achieve that?

Thank you for your answer Embbnux Ji, but I'm not sure I understand your answer.

What would be the process for a customer to add our bot? What do you mean by 'Add to glip button'? 

I saw a 'add to glip' button, but in my account when creating the app. Is there a way to add a 'Add to glip' button anywhere (like on our own web app)?

Or would a customer need to create a developer account? If so, how do they 'find' our bot to add it? Is there a catalog of bots when the bot is public?

Ideally, we would want a way for the users to simply click a button and integrate the app or bot in their Glip account, without having to create a Ring Central dev account.

For example on Slack, there's a way to package a bot with a slack app:

So that users just have to click a 'install to slack' button that you can put anywhere and adds a bot user into their slack team.

Hi, Mg,

You can create a Bot in public type. So it can be installed in different account. Every account can install it by 'Add to Glip' button. and it will creates different bot user for different account. When different account install glip bot, your server can get different token.    

You can try this . it supports public bot.

Hi Phong!

I mean different accounts. Like the company ABC inc has a glip and wants these features, then the company Cleaning inc also has a glip and wants these features, etc.

Hi Mg,

Just want to clarify one thing before I'll look into a solution for your problem.
Saying "any glip" and "multiple glips" do you mean "any glip channels under the same account" or from different accounts?
