The Jacada Interact Admin Console provides tools for managing all aspects of your Interact account and the Interactions published to it.
Continuous communication is maintained between the Admin Console, the Interaction Designer, and the Interact Server clients (applications). Therefore, any updates that are made in the Admin Console have an immediate effect on the other system components. For example, if you modify Interaction global resources in the Admin Console, their values are immediately updated in runtime. (There is no need to re-publish the Interactions that use those resources.)
On first login to the Admin Console, you'll see the Welcome page, providing a brief video introduction to Jacada Interact.
Common administrative actions performed using the Admin Console are summarized in the sections below.
