The Verba Ethical Wall for Skype for Business (Lync) uses the following connections to the Skype for Business (Lync) platform:
- Trusted application on the Front End Servers - a filter is processing signaling for presence blocking, session blocking, and disclaimers
- UCMA application - used for notifications
The Verba Ethical Wall and the Verba Ethical Wall init have to be registered in the Skype for Business (Lync) environment as trusted applications. The required commands can be found under the "Verba SfB/Lync Communication Policy Service" section in the Installing the Verba Skype for Business - Lync Filter article.
An API user has to be created. This is a regular Verba user with Superuser role. Optionally the API Access Only setting can be turned on. For more information refer to the User Configuration page.
If the notifications are required then the Verba Announcement service needs to be installed and configured. For instructions, please refer to the Installing and configuring the Verba SfB - Lync Announcement service page.
