Enabling VST Message Exchange
You can configure the VMP Server
to enable messages and images to be exchanged between Vocera Collaboration Suite users
and VST users.
When this capability is enabled, VST users
are automatically imported from the VST cloud
server into the VMP Server.
Important: VST 2.1 or later is required.
If you have previously installed the
VST Sync Connector in your on-premises network,
you must uninstall it before enabling VST
message exchange on the VMP Server.
See the VST Hospital Administrator Guide
for information on upgrading existing VST
Start the VMP Administrator.
Select Configuration > System Options.
The System Options dialog box appears.
Scroll to the Integrations section, and then to the
Vocera Secure Texting App - Message Exchange subsection.
Set the Enabled field to Yes.
In the User ID field, type the ID that the
VST cloud server
uses to identify the connected Vocera organization.
In the Shared Key field, type the key that authenticates the connection
between the VST cloud server
and the connected Vocera organization.
In the Manage VST Contacts field, select Voice
to manage your VST contacts
on the Vocera Voice Server, or select
VMP to manage your VST
contacts on the VMP Server.
If you are managing your VST
contacts on the VMP Server,
VMP creates the
VSTContacts distribution list to contain them.
Click OK to save your changes.
On the computer on which the VMP Server is
running, ensure that outgoing connections on port 443 are not blocked by your firewall. The VMP Server
uses this port to transmit information to the VST server.
The User ID and Shared Key fields are generated from the VST Administration Console.
See the VST Vocera Administrator Guide for more details.
When the VMP Server synchronizes with the
VST cloud server, all VST users
on the cloud server are imported into the VMP Server as VMP users.
These users also automatically become members of the VST Users Distribution List.
To control which VMP users can view
these VST users as contacts,
specify access permissions on this Distribution List. See Managing Access to a Distribution List for more details.
