Skill Group API

Skill Group API

A skill group is a collection of agents who share a common set of competencies that equip them to handle the same types of requests. Some examples of skill groups are a collection of agents who speak a specific language or who can assist callers with billing questions.

Use the Skill Group API to list, view, or edit existing skill groups.


Access to this API is different for supervisors and administrators. For more information, see Access.




  • get: Returns one skill group, using the URL https://<server>/unifiedconfig/config/skillgroup/<id>.
  • list: Retrieves a list of skill groups.
    • Query Parameters:
      • selectedAgentCount: Use this query parameter to augment skill group information about multiple agents. The selectedAgentCount parameter shows the number of specified agents belonging to that skill group. For example, to find out how many of agents 5000, 5001, 5002, and 5003 belong to each of the skill groups in the list, add selectedAgentCount=5000,5001,5002,5003.


        Using selectedAgentCount automatically sets the summary list query parameter to true.
