You will need to inform Sportzcast that you are enabling the Sportzcast / BoxCast integration. Be sure to include your ScoreBOT number in the request. Sportzcast can be reached via email at email@example.com or call 321-888-3800, option 2.
All configuration of the ScoreBOT itself is done through the Sportzcast website: https://sportzcast.net/. To use the integration you will need to create a Unique Integration Name using your user login on Sportzcast.net. Contact Sportzcast Tech support if you don’t have an ID, or don’t know what it is.
Login to your Sportzcast account with your Sportzcast ID and at the bottom you will see the option to add an Integration. The Integration will have access to all the bots that the ID that you logged in with has. When you create the Name, the token will be blank.
In Boxcast, enter the Integration Name, and your Sportzcast password. From that point on that Integration Name will be tied to that password and the integration should now be able to pull data from your Sportzcast account.
Be certain that your User Name does not contain spaces or special characters
Confirm that your Sportzcast license is Active
If you go back to your Sportzcast account, then you can configure a bot by hovering over Bots, then hovering over the bot in question (the bot number is printed on the front of the ScoreBOT), then clicking on Profile.
The profile screen will provide options for configuring the sport, make, model, scoreboard code, etc. You will need to choose the correct scoreboard information from the Scoreboard option. If your particular scoreboard / sport / code / etc. combo is not listed, you'll need to reach out to Sportzcast.
If the ScoreBOT is configured correctly, online and connected to the scoreboard controller, then you will be able to click on the ScoreBOT listed under Bots and see a live view of the data coming from the scoreboard.
When this is all working correctly, then you are ready to use this ScoreBOT with a Boxcast event.
To use the Sportzcast / BoxCast integration, please contact the BoxCast Customer Success team at firstname.lastname@example.org to turn on the functionality.
You must configure your Sportzcast credentials go to Settings, Integrations and click on Add Scoreboard Integration.

The integration with a particular ScoreBOT is done on a per-event basis. It is important that you get the ScoreBOT number correct, as there is no way to change this once the event has started.
Be aware that the scoreboard data may be 1-2 seconds behind the live action due to the latency from the Sportzcast servers.**
