Create Task Extension Schema

ApiRef2.png POST /metadata/tasks/extensions
Available since:


Creates an extension schema for task resources. Your application must create a schema which defines the task extension before this extension can be used. For instance, if your application needs to fill in feedback data in some task, the first step is to create the corresponding schema which details the lists of attributes that compose the new extension. Then, once the schema is created, your application can use the extension records in task resources which fulfill the extension schema. See Extension for further details. Your application can create the extension schema when the UCS is in Production mode, but Genesys recommends to create extensions when the server is in maintenance mode.
