ServisBOT Messenger is the default engagement adapter for endpoints. When creating an endpoint, unless the engagement adapter is set to something else, the bot will be available through our messenger.
You can restrict where your messenger can be displayed by providing a set of domains. When developing on a site locally, it might be helpful to add
http://localhost:3000 depending on your local settings.
Many aspects of our messenger can be changed without any code. Things like the colors for the bot roundel, messenger, and timeline elements and text can be changed.
