Query Customer Block

Use this block to look up a customer's core profile and profile extension attributes. Use the CustomerID to specify which customer you want to return data for. Composer stores the returned results in an application variable. For an example of how to use this block, see the Getting and Using E-mail Addresses topic.

Tip
If using Context Services 8.5, the database for service/state information is the Genesys Mobile Services database. If using Context Services 8.1, the database for service/state information is the Universal Contact Server database. For more information, see General Guidelines for Context Services Preferences.
