Gainsight PX Customer Communities Integration

This article explains how to configure Gainsight Customer Communities(CC) with Gainsight PX, to add Customer Communities content in Knowledge Center Bot.


This article explains how to integrate Gainsight PX with Gainsight Customer Communities(CC) to access Knowledge Center articles. Customer Communities is an interactive platform which helps customers and Gainsight’s internal teams to share and discuss feedback, queries, and suggestions on the technical enhancements and latest product updates. When PX is configured with Customer Communities, in-app Knowledge Center Bots help you to deploy personalized content (such as onboarding or adoption checklists, key resources including FAQ or best practice articles) directly in your application. For more information refer to the Customer Communities website.


You must have CC Admin Console credentials to generate API Base URL, Client ID, and Client Secret to configure the integration.
