Update Interaction Block

Introduced in 8.1.440.18. Use to update properties of interaction(s) in the Interaction Server database including interaction(s) that are not currently being processed in the workflow. When ORS executes this block, it generates a request to Interaction Server for the method UpdateInteractions to update the interaction user data for the specified interaction using attributes specified in the Delete Attributes property or Update Interaction Attributes property.

The main use case is to update properties of the parent interaction (session or case). This object is used mostly in conjunction with the Find Interactions block. For example, when you receive a reply onto an outbound e-mail, you can find the parent interaction and change its status to indicate that a reply was received.

Tip
Update Interaction sends a request to Interaction Server whereas Update Contact sends a request to Universal Contact Server.
