Section: interaction-workspace
Default Value: IW_OverrideOptions
Valid Values: An attached data key name (string).
Changes Take Effect: At the next interaction.

Enables overriding of certain application options by using one or several transaction objects. This option provides the key name of the attached data that contains the list of transaction objects. Note: the key named in this option will not be copied into any interaction that is created from the current interaction, such as consultations, reply emails, and so on.

Modifying a Routing Strategy to override a Workspace option based on attached data

Purpose: To override previously defined configuration options by using a Routing Strategy.
A Routing Strategy can be used to override configuration options that you have defined by using the hierarchies described in Configuration And Administration By Using Options And Annexes.
Workspace uses Transaction Objects of type object list. Attach a transaction name or list of transaction names to the interaction in your strategy. The transaction names in the list should be separated by commas. Workspace reads the transaction objects at rendering time to override the static options.
Overriding options enables you to change the appearance of interactions per line of business based on a key-value pair that is defined in the annex of Transaction objects. The attached data contains the name of the transaction object(s) to be used for the interaction.


  1. Configure one or more Transaction objects, of type list, in Genesys Administrator Extension or Composer, by using the standard approach that is used for other object types in the hierarchy (these rely on the option reference to determine if a particular option can be overridden in a Transaction).
    You can only override options in the interaction-workspace section. Therefore, you must replicate the interaction-workspace section to the annex of the object level where you want the override to occur (Tenant, Group, User, or Transaction).
  2. Configure the option interaction.override-option-key to define the key where the Transaction object(s) are to be listed in attached data (refer to the Interaction configuration option reference for a list of Interaction options and a description of how to configure them).
  3. Using either IRD or Composer, edit your routing strategy by adding an "Attach" or "Multi-attach" block that attaches the key value pair that is defined below:
    • key: The name of the key that you defined in the option set in Step 2.
    • value: One or several comma-separated Transaction objects, as defined in Step 1.
