VIDIZMO has built-in Live Chat feature, that allows users to seamlessly interact during casting of a live session. VIDIZMO Chat does not require any detailed steps of configuration and is enabled by default in customers' main portal and all sub-portals. However, if your organization has a wide base of users that will be actively participating in a Live session, then you may configure Live Chat Application using Azure Service Bus.
VIDIZMO allows you to configure Chat settings using Application Configuration keys via Control Panel in your Portal. Here is how you can do this:
Before you start
To understand certain prerequisites, considerations and steps in order to configure application configuration keys, see:

- How to Configure Live Chat Application using Azure Service Bus
Configuring Chat Settings in VIDIZMO
You can configure the following in Chat section of Application Configuration:
Azure Chat Service Url
Provide connection string to Azure Service Bus excluding the SharedAccessKey value by following the steps here. SharedAccessKey would be required in next set of fields. This would be something like 'Endpoint=sb://mychatservice.servicebus.windows.net/;SharedAccessKeyName=RootManageSharedAccessKey;SharedAccessKey='
This is Azure Service bus endpoint connection, which is used to provide chat functionality in portal. If this key is not set, application uses built-in chat service that makes use of web sockets and http.
Azure Service Bus Manage Key
Provide the Primary Key obtained in the last step of the process.
This Azure Service Bus Key is used by application to create chat rooms (topics) for live session as it starts.
Azure Service Bus Send Receive Key
Provide the Primary Key of the custom SAS policy that you can create by following the step 3 here.
This Azure Service Bus Send/Receive Key is used to send and receive messages in a chat room. This key has different permissions than the one used to manage service bus.
