Sample Workflow Deployment

Use the following procedure to deploy the workflow sample:

  1. Stop Interaction Server.
  2. Upgrade the Interaction Server Database - execute script AsyncChatSample.sql from “workflow” subdirectory of Chat Server working directory.
    Note: SQL script provided for Microsoft SQL Server only. You need to adjust it accordingly if you are using a different database for Interaction Server.
  3. Create new interaction custom properties; these are used in the workflow sample for view conditions. In Configuration (using GAX):
    • Navigate to the Business Attributes folder and create new Business Attribute with:
      • type - Custom
      • name - InteractionCustomProperties
      • display name - Interaction Custom Properties
    • Navigate to Attribute Values and create the following values (Note: that name and display name must be the same and each value must have a translation section in the Annex tab with a “translate-to” option):
      • GCTI_Chat_AsyncStatus with translate-to=async_status
      • GCTI_Chat_AsyncCheckAt with translate-to=async_check_at
  4. Start Interaction Server.
  5. In Interaction Routing Designer (IRD), import AsyncChatSample.wie, located in workflow sub-directory of Chat Server working directory, and activate strategies.
  6. Connect Chat Server endpoint with async-chat-greet-queue queue.
  7. In Workspace Desktop Edition application configuration options (see Configuring Asynchronous Chat in Workspace Desktop Edition for more information), set:
    • value chat.on-hold-queue to async-chat-return-queue
    • value workbin.chat.on-hold to async-chat-main-workbin


While Genesys Chat Widget only supports async mode for CometD connections, the testing of back-end components (Chat Server, workflow and Agent Desktop) can be done using the Chat Widget without enabling CometD. Launch the Chat Widget with the following userdata:

{ GCTI_Chat_AsyncMode: "true"

Additionally you can provide the following key-value pairs:

Value Description
Chat_Async_RoutingTimeout: "5" allow to decrease routing wait time to 5 seconds (default value in workflow is 120 seconds).
Chat_Async_WorkflowDebug: "true" forces workflow to send debug chat messages about workflow execution.
