Provide access to the Contact Control Panel - Amazon Connect

Provide access to the Contact Control Panel

Agents use the Amazon Connect Contact Control Panel (CCP) to communicate with contacts. But before agents can access to the CCP and handle contacts, there are a few things you need to do:

  1. Create a user name and password for agents to log into the CCP, by adding agents to your instance.

  2. At minimum, assign them the Agent security profile. This grants them permissions to access the CCP, which they use to manage contacts.

  3. Provide the user name, password, and the CCP website link to your agents so they can log in.

    The CCP website link is: https://instance

    We recommend telling agents to bookmark the URL to the CCP so they can readily access it.


    Want your agents to manage contacts, and access customer profiles, cases, and knowledge all in one place? Use the agent application, which is a single web browser interface that hosts the CCP, Customer Profiles, Cases, and Wisdom. For more information, see Agent training guide.

  4. Train your agents on the CCP:

You can also resolve the issue by using Firefox as your browser.
