OpenText does not recommend installations of non-OpenText cloud services with RightFax. OpenText cannot support third-party cloud extensions to RightFax or any issues arising from the use of such services. Further, the installation of thirdparty components may interfere with the ability for OpenText to properly investigate and diagnose whether technical issues are with RightFax or other cloud service provider(s). Ultimately, your RightFax performance and reliability is at risk with third-party add-ons. Customers who require secure, scalable and supported hybrid faxing solutions are encouraged to evaluate RightFax Connect, a proven, effective and fully supported cloud-based communication for RightFax servers.
