Update Customer Block

Use this block to update the customer profile in the database used for Context Services. You can update customer profile or extension data.  Composer supports multi-valued extensions starting with Universal Contact Server 8.0.2.  For more information on Context Services attributes and extensions, see the Context Services User's Guide.

Notes:

  • Place this block after the Query Customer block after you place the results of the customer query in a variable. This applies if you want to update some individual customer attributes and keep the other attributes at their original values. Otherwise, to remove all older attribute values, you do not need to use a Query Customer block and the Profile Data Variable property can remain not set.
  • 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.
