Callback Services API

Overview

The URI parameter, {callback-execution-name}, is required for all of the Callback APIs. The value for this parameter equals the name of a Callback service configured in your GMS application or cluster. For example, if you have a section "service.sales_callback" of type Callback configured, the {callback-execution-name} will be equal to "sales_callback".

API

Start-Callback

The Start-Callback API initiates a callback request. It validates the request by doing the following:

  • Checks parameters, in general (target queue is valid).
  • Checks the customer number against exceptions.
  • Checks the time criteria of the request against the business.
    • If invalid:
      • Returns the appropriate error.
      • Sends a reporting event to the GMS data manager indicating that the callback request has been rejected.
    • If valid:
      • Creates a unique ID for the request.
      • Sends a reporting event to the GMS data manager indicating that the callback request has been accepted and started.
        This event also indicates the state of the request (immediate or scheduled).
      • If the request needs to be scheduled for a later date/time, the request and its associated data will be stored in the module persistent data storage.
      • If the request can be started now, an ORS session is initiated using the associated SCXML-based service with this particular callback request.
        Note: the provisioned data for the execution service to be started will be used as input along with the input parameters from the request itself.
      • Returns the ID generated for this request.
