As of release v4.9 Cognigy.AI adds a form section to the Webchat Endpoint configuration to provide embedding-ready code to users. Clicking the link "Open Embedding Documentation" below the embed field takes you to the GitHub Webchat Widget embedding documentation for detailed specifications and examples.

When hovering over the code field you will get a button displayed to copy the code to the clipboard.

That makes your Webchat configuration for your own purposes much easier now.
