Intercom Live Chat


Inside your project, navigate to the Integrations tab and on the left side bar select Live Chat. You will find Intercom Live chat


Copy webhook details from the Integrations page and enter it in Settings -> Webhooks. Add conversations.admin.replied and conversations.admin.closed topics.

You’ll need to provide an Intercom access token, which you can find inside your intercom developer app → Configure → Authentication → Access Token. Then click on connect.

If you have multiple accounts, follow the above mentioned steps to add each of them.

  1. Enter a unique name for each account to easily identify them within the platform. It is recommended to use a name that aligns with its purpose for better usability.
  2. You can add a maximum of 15 accounts.
  3. In a two-tier environment, such as bots with only Development/Live environments, you can add account names only in the development mode. Once added and flows have been built, in the Live mode, you can only choose the account names and not edit them.
  4. In a three-tier environment, such as bots with Staging/Sandbox/Production modes, in Staging and Sandbox modes, you can add and edit new accounts. However, in Production, only the account details added in Staging will be available. You can only map in the production environment.

Use Case

In this integration you can use raise ticket node to create a conversation with intercom agent and once conversation initiates the user can talk to the intercom agent, once the conversation between them ends bot takes over the conversation with user.


When multiple accounts are added, select the appropriate account for each node, allowing you to leverage the unique functionalities of each account for their intended purposes.



Following are the events which are currently accommodated in the Integration:


Use Ticket-closed in the Raise Ticket node to perform specific actions when a live chat closes, instead of using the ticket-close event.

intercom_message_replyThis event reaches to bot when intercom agent sends a reply to the user.
intercom_agent_assignedThis event reaches to bot when any of the intercom agent accepts your ticket.
ticket-closedThis event reaches to bot when intercom agent closes the user ticket.

If you have added multiple accounts in your platform, enable events for each of those accounts.
