    Hello,

    I am new to Cisco finesse world.
    I have already run Cisco finesse desktop and understand the Web 2.0 gadgets structure.

    I have also downloaded some sample gadgets (eg. screenpop) from Cisco blog.
    However I am little bit confuse in using those gadgets in Cisco finesse desktop.

    I know that I need to update finesse layout in Cisco Finesse Administration console.
    But I don’t know how to upload those new gadgets inside Cisco Tomcat on Cisco Finesse server.

    Please guide me to upload new files on finesse server.
    Is there any guide which help me to use command line interface on finesse server.

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Pavan

    Hi Akansha,

    There is no need to upload the gadgets on finesse server. We can host the gadgets on our own server.
    You can host the sample gadgets on IIS OR Apache server.

    After uploading, just make the reference in finesse layout as below,
    <gadget>http://IP-Address//CallControl/CallControl.xml</gadget>

    where IP_Address is the server's ip address where you hosted your sample gadgets.

    Thanks,
    Pavan

    I hosted the gadget thru IIS in my own computer. The url is as follows:

    http://<mycomputerIPaddress>/FINESSE/screenpop/Screenpop.xml

    and added the same in Finesse Layout Xml.


    But i am getting the following error now:

    There were issues rendering this gadget.
    org.apache.http.conn.ConnectTimeoutException: Connect to <mycomputerIPaddress> timed out.


    Thanks for ur help!

    Please check if your IIS is working i.e. port 80 is not blocked by some other application.

    Usually Cisco communicator is blocking port 80.
    Or try with some other samples.

    Can you please guide me on how to add call variables and hence add ECC variables to it. I want to see the Name of the person calling me in Finesse Agent Desktop.

    Thanks!

    You need to retrieve the list of media properties associated to the call object
    Media properties contains call variables and ecc variables associated with the dialog object.

    See the GoogleMapsScreenpop sample for this.
    The sample will guide you for using callvariables in finesse desktop
