WhatsApp Channel

Webex Engage now extends its omnichannel capabilities by supporting WhatsApp as a channel for businesses to interact with customers easily.

To get started

  • Customers have to Sign-up for Facebook Business Manager, Create a Business Account, Add Phone Number, and Download the Certificate.

  • Share the Certificate with the Webex Connect team to link their WhatsApp account.

  • After performing the manual support activity, Webex Connect Team will share Name, WhatsApp Long Code, Asset ID, and Service Key with Webex Engage Operations Team.

  • Webex Engage Operations Team will further share these details with the Webex Engage Admin team. The administrative users use these details to create an asset on Webex Engage.

  • Adding, editing, and deleting a WhatsApp (channel) asset is carried out by IMImobile’s Operations Team.


Once an asset is created, an administrator can edit the following details on the edit assets screen:

  • Asset Name: Name of the asset.
  • Asset ID: ID of the asset.
  • Business Account Details: The additional information under this section helps to link WhatsApp Business (WAB) registered templates to the assets.



Please refrain from editing the Business Account Details of an asset.

  • Shared Across: Default and Shared across team details of an asset.
