Changes in this Document

New in 8.5.0

Re-architecting of IWD

Most of the deployment and configuration of iWD is now carried out using new components and interfaces. Some of the effects of this change are:

  • Standardization of many of the procedures involved with deployment and configuration, using new components as well as a refreshed iWD Manager component.
  • A completely new user configuration interface based on the Genesys Administrator Extension (GAX) plug-in.
  • Removal of support for configuration using the Genesys Configuration Manager client.

The changes are detailed as follows:

  • iWD is now deployed by means of a new GAX Automatic Service Deployment (ASD) plug-in component called iWD Setup Utility.
  • iWD configuration is now performed via Genesys Administrator Extension (GAX) and a new iWD GAX plug-in component. Specifically, the following aspects that were previously carried out in iWD Manager have now moved:
    • Tenant profile (to GAX)
    • Lookup tables (to iWD GAX Plugin)
    • Services (to iWD GAX Plugin)
    • Generic capture point (to GAX)
    • Data Mart Services (to iWD GAX Plugin)
    • Departments and processes (to iWD GAX Plugin)
    • Audit history (to a centralized log database)
    • Security policy (to Genesys Administrator, using Role-Based Access Control (RBAC))
  • The IWD Data Mart Services view is now replaced by a GAX dashboard monitoring the state of the Data Mart node.
  • Data Mart can now run as a standalone Java module and is now managed directly using Solution Control Server.
  • The modules and components mechanism is removed from iWD Manager.
  • The Business Context Management Service (BCMS) functionality is moved to the Genesys Rules Engine.
  • IWD Manager is now used primarily for task management and monitoring using the Global Task List.
  • Support for legacy capture points is removed.

Deployment/Configuration Using Genesys Administrator Extension

  • Support for configuration using the Genesys Configuration Manager client is withdrawn in release 8.5.0.
