Info Mart Tables

Info Mart tables fall into one of the following categories, out of which only the first one contains data that is suitable for reporting purposes:

Fact Tables

The fact tables all include the _FACT suffix in the table name. The following Info Mart tables are fact tables, which are described in this document:



The Info Mart schema also includes the following Fact tables, which are not described in this document. Instead, as described in Dimension Views, this document provides detailed information about the parallel views:

  • CALLING_LIST_TO_CAMP_FACT_
  • GROUP_TO_CAMPAIGN_FACT_
  • PLACE_GROUP_FACT_
  • RESOURCE_GROUP_FACT_
  • RESOURCE_SKILL_FACT_


Fact Extension Tables

Special tables referred to as fact extension tables complement the INTERACTION_RESOURCE_FACT (IRF) and, depending on configuration, MEDIATION_SEGMENT_FACT (MSF) tables. The following are Info Mart fact extension tables:

Dimension Tables

The following are Info Mart dimension tables, which are described in this document:


Some tables, such as TECHNICAL_DESCRIPTOR, are populated with data upon Info Mart initialization. Other tables are populated based on the resources and configuration of your contact center, the configuration of the Genesys Info Mart application object, and the configuration of other Genesys applications from which the Genesys Info Mart Server gathers data. Still other tables, such as MEDIA_TYPE, after being populated upon Info Mart initialization, can be further extended at runtime.

Dimension Views

Genesys Info Mart database schema includes a number of dimension views that are provided on top of certain dimension tables. Dimension views can be used for reporting similarly to dimension tables. Moreover, where both a table and a view are available in the schema, dimension views are recommended to be queried for reporting purposes. For this reason, this document does not provide detailed descriptions of the following tables:

  • CALLING_LIST_TO_CAMP_FACT_
  • GROUP_TO_CAMPAIGN_FACT_
  • PLACE_GROUP_FACT_
  • RESOURCE_GROUP_FACT_
  • RESOURCE_SKILL_FACT_


See Genesys Info Mart Views for descriptions of dimension views, including those that correspond to the above tables.

Time Dimension Tables

The DATE_TIME table is the default time dimension table that is created in the Info Mart database during schema initialization. During initialization, Genesys Info Mart populates this table with calendar data for a configurable number of days in the future; new rows are added to the table at a configured frequency, as part of regular maintenance.

Custom time dimension tables can be added to the Info Mart schema at any point to support the need for multiple calendars. When tables are created, Genesys Info Mart populates these tables with calendar data for a configurable number of days in the future; it further maintains these tables, similarly to the DATE_TIME table maintenance.

Info Mart Service and Control Tables

The following control tables can be referenced to trace processing of Genesys Info Mart data while testing new reports or to troubleshoot behavior of ETL jobs:

Important
Genesys recommends that you query operational data through views rather than from the control tables directly.

The following control tables are configured and used for user data processing:

Starting with release 8.5.010, the CTL_GDPR_HISTORY table provides details about personally identifiable information (PII) that is associated with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) “export” or “forget” requests and that was stored in Info Mart fact tables at the time the request was processed. In addition to making the PII data available for customers to retrieve in response to "export" requests, the table provides a detailed audit trail of all the fields that were interrogated to satisfy the GDPR requests. In this way, the table serves as an execution report on "export" and "forget" processing.

The following Info Mart table can be referenced to check what purging activities have been completed:

The following Info Mart table is for reference only:

  • CTL_SCHEMA_INFO

The following control tables are listed for completeness of the schema description. They serve purely internal purposes and should not be used for either reporting or administrative needs:

  • CTL_AUDIT_LOG_KEY
  • CTL_DS
  • CTL_EXTRACT_HWM
  • CTL_EXTRACT_METRICS
  • CTL_PROCESSING_STATUS
  • CTL_SCHEDULED_JOBS
  • CTL_TIME_ZONE_OFFSET
  • CTL_TRANSFORM_HWM
  • CTL_TRANSFORM_TODO
  • CTL_WORKFLOW_STATUS

GIDB tables are populated as a result of data extraction from all IDBs that are deployed to feed data into Genesys Info Mart. Each row corresponds to a record that is extracted from a given IDB. The data that is related to interaction processing is extracted to media-dependent tables whose names are appended with _MM (for multimedia interactions) or _V (for voice interactions). The data for complete and active agent reason codes is extracted from G_AGENT_STATE_RC and G_AGENT_STATE_RC_A IDB tables, respectively, and written into the same GIDB_G_AGENT_STATE_RC_* table; any duplicated records are merged as the GIDB data is transformed for the dimensional model.

In addition to extracting all the fields from a certain IDB table, Genesys Info Mart populates values for the following columns that are specific to the Info Mart database:

  • CREATE_AUDIT_KEY
  • UPDATE_AUDIT_KEY (provided for those tables that can be updated)


Genesys Info Mart does not extract data from the IDB system fields that have no meaning for contact center reports. Otherwise, the meaning of the data in each row is the same as in the corresponding IDB record. For example, the GIDB_GC_PLACE table in the Info Mart database corresponds to the GC_PLACE table in IDB. Refer to the Interaction Concentrator Physical Data Model for your particular RDBMS for information about the data that is stored in corresponding GIDB tables.

Merge Tables

The merge tables of the Info Mart database are the following:

  • G_CALL
  • G_IR
  • G_IS_LINK
  • GSYS_DNPREMOTELOCATION


If data is being extracted from multiple IDBs, and if merging of call data is required (for example, for multi-site calls), Merge tables temporarily store data for these calls.

This document provides no descriptions for merge tables because they are used for internal processing and contain no final reporting data.

Temporary Tables

The Info Mart schema contains a large number of temporary (TMP_*) tables. These tables are used by the ETL jobs during data processing.

This document provides no listing or descriptions of TMP_* tables because they are used for internal processing and contain no final reporting data.

Staging Tables

The Info Mart schema contains a number of staging (STG_*) tables. Unlike in release 7.x, staging tables no longer make up a separate database, but instead are created as part of the Info Mart database. A majority of these tables are used by the ETL jobs to store temporary data between execution cycles.

The following two staging tables store errors that are written during ETL job execution (the transformation job, in particular) and are helpful in troubleshooting the source data that causes these errors:


The following staging tables store temporary data about active multimedia interactions and facilitate purging, from fact tables, of multimedia data that is related to ongoing interactions that meet configured criteria:

  • STG_ACTIVE_IF
  • STG_ACTIVE_IRF
  • STG_ACTIVE_IRF_REPLIES
  • STG_ACTIVE_MSF

The following staging tables keep track of interaction threads and of agent participation in threads. While a thread is active, metrics for the thread are updated in these staging tables, as applicable, and the data persists until the thread is closed.

  • STG_ACTIVE_THREAD
  • STG_THREAD_AGENT
  • STG_THREAD_AGENTRPY


Aside from the STG_IDB_FK_VIOLATION and STG_TRANSFORM_DISCARDS tables, this document provides no listing or descriptions of the STG_* tables, because they are used for internal processing and contain neither final reporting data nor troubleshooting data.
