Business Structure

[+] DESCRIPTION

Levels of a Business Structure for a Tenant:

  • [+] SOLUTIONS
  • [+] DEPARTMENTS
  • [+] PROCESSES

Filters and Constraints

Configuration Server respects tenancy permission settings. You can access only those objects that you have been granted permissions and privileges to access.

You can filter the contents of this list in two ways:

  1. Type the name or partial name of an object in the Quick Filter field.
  2. Click the cube icon to open the Tenant Directory filter panel. In this panel, click the Tenant that you want to select. Use the Quick Filter field in this panel to filter the Tenant list.

You can sort the items in the list by clicking the Name column. Clicking a second time reverses the sort order. You can add or remove columns by clicking Select Columns.

To select or de-select multiple objects at once, click Select.

Data Fields

Each entry is shown with the following data fields:

  • Name—The element's name.
  • TypeSolution, Department or Process
  • ID—The runtime ID of this element.
  • Contact Name—Contact name for queries about this element.
  • Description—Free-format text description of the element.

To create a new Solution

  1. Click New.
  2. From the displayed list, select the Solution element.
  3. Complete the Solution data fields on the form tabs and click Save.

To create a new Solution by cloning

  1. Either:
    • Select one Solution and click More: or;
    • Display the details of an existing Solution.
  2. Click Clone.
  3. Edit the Solution data fields.

Other Actions

From this context you can Delete this Solution.

Warning
Deleting a Solution can have huge implications for the operation of a contact center. Do not undertake these without serious consideration.

Solution Details

  • Solution Name—The Solution name. Mandatory when you add a new Solution.
  • ID—The ID of the Solution. Mandatory when you add a new Solution. The system will propose a default new Runtime ID.
  • Timezone—Solution timezone. Use the drop-down list to change this.
  • First Day of Week—The first day of the working week for this Solution. Use the drop-down list to change this.
  • Description—Free-format text description of the Solution.

Interaction Server Settings

  • Interaction Server—The Interaction Server for this Solution. Use the drop-down list to change this. This drop-down list contains those Interaction Servers which contain the Solution's parent Tenant on their Tenants list.
  • Port—The connection port of the Interaction Server. Use the drop-down list to change this. This drop-down list contains the Interaction Server chosen above ports from the ports list.
Important
If two Solutions are configured to use the same Interaction Server, be aware that the Port settings (that is, secure or non-secure) of the Solution that is configured second are the ones that the Interaction Server will use. It is preferable to ensure that both Solutions' Port settings are of the same type—either both secure, or both non-secure.
Every configuration object or parameter that references the Port ID (and therefore can be either secure or non-secure) will work in the same way—the setting of the one configured second (where two Solutions are configured) is the one that the Interaction Server will use. This affects connection protocol, local timeout, remote timeout, trace mode and transport protocol parameters.
  • Connection Protocol—The connection protocol of the Interaction Server. Use the drop-down list to change this. This parameter is set as the connection attribute of the Interaction Server connection in the iWD Manager application.
  • Protocol Timeout—The timeout configured for the connection protocol.
  • Local Timeout— The timeout configured on the local server. This parameter is set as the connection attribute of the Interaction Server connection in the iWD Manager application.
  • Event Buffer Size—The maximum size in bytes of the event buffer.
  • Remote Timeout—The timeout configured on the remote server. This parameter is set as the connection attribute of the Interaction Server connection in the iWD Manager application.
  • Threads—The number of threads available.
  • EventLog JDBC URL—The URL of the JDBC event log. Mandatory for all database engines set in the Eventlog DAP (connected to Interaction Server set above), apart from MSSQL.
  • Attribute Filter Include—Attributes included here will appear in the Custom Attributes displayed in the Global Task List in iWD Manager.
  • Attribute Filter Exclude—Attributes excluded here will not appear in the Custom Attributes displayed in the Global Task List in iWD Manager.
