In the Column List:
- P = Primary key
- M = Mandatory field
- F = Foreign key (where the term is used loosely to indicate a surrogate key reference to a field in another table, not a formal constraint)
- DV = Default value
- In the Data Type column, varchar/nvarchar means that the data type is varchar except in multi-language databases that use Unicode, in which case the data type is nvarchar.
This dimension table allows chat thread facts to be described based on where the chat session originated. This dimension table is populated only in cloud deployments with Advanced Chat. Depending on specific media, the media origin values are either the same as, or complementary to, the media types stored in the MEDIA_TYPE table. For instance, for Facebook public messaging, Facebook is the value recorded both as MEDIA_NAME in the MEDIA_TYPE table and as MEDIA_ORIGIN in the MEDIA_ORIGIN table. For Facebook private messaging, however, the value recorded as MEDIA_NAME in the MEDIA_TYPE table would be CHAT, while the value recorded as MEDIA_ORIGIN in the MEDIA_ORIGIN table would be Facebook.

Identifies where the chat session originated (web chat, social media channels, SMS, and so on).
The surrogate key that is used to join to the CTL_AUDIT_LOG control table. The key specifies the lineage for data creation. This value can be useful for aggregation, enterprise application integration (EAI), and ETL tools—that is, applications that need to identify newly added data.
|I_MEDIA_ORIGIN||X||Ensures that the combinations of values that are stored in the dimension table are unique.|
