To connect with Cyclr, you need a valid set of Five9 credentials.
Five9 recommend using the credentials of a user with the Virtual Call Center supervisor role. This user needs to have the relevant permissions enabled to allow them to send requests to the Five9 API. You can find more information about permissions in the Users chapter of the Five9 Virtual Contact Center Basic Administrator’s Guide.
Cyclr asks you for the below values when you install the Five9 connector into an account:
The data center of the Five9 instance.
The username to access the Five9 instance with.
The password to access the Five9 instance with.
Note: You can use different details for different accounts.

The Five9 connector needs a session to be active for you to make requests to the API. This session is a connection between Cyclr and the Five9 API. You can only have one active session per account. The session times out if you don't make a request to the API within a specified time period.
Create a session
Create a session by using the Sessions > Set Session Parameters method. The Rolling Period and Statistics Range parameters define how statistics are returned from the API for requests in the session. The time out duration is defined by the Idle Time Out parameter, this will default to
180 seconds if not set.
If a session is already active when this method is called, the already active session updates with a new session with the set parameters. If no session is active when this method is called, a new session starts.
Check session status
Check the status of a session by using the Sessions > List Session Parameters method. When placed in a cycle, this method has true/false exits that reflect the status of the current session:
If there is an active session, the method returns the session parameters and exits through the true exit.
If there is no active session, the method exits through the false exit.
