Orchestration Server Integration

Introduction

Orchestrations server integration allows SCXML applications to reach out and interact with other systems within your enterprise and may not only be used for customer specific related integrations but is also leveraged to support integrations to other Genesys products and components that may not as yet have native actions support, such as Context Services and Outbound Contact Server. Such integrations with Genesys components are briefly described in the Genesys Servers section below. Outward integrations from Orchestration are facilitated by the Orchestration Core Extension <fetch> which is defined in more detail in Core Extensions <fetch> which can be consulted to aid in your custom integration.

Genesys Servers

To facilitate easier use of these Genesys-related Servers, Composer supports specific blocks that may remove the need for custom integration code. Because of this, we recommend that you refer to the Composer Routing Applications User's Guide for the latest available blocks. This document can be obtained from the Composer page on this wiki.

Context Services

Context Services is a data repository that provides real-time and historic customer-centric data to SCXML applications through an interface that allows the application users to make important business decisions. For example, it allows you to determine whether a customer should be offered a given service or that the customer is a high value client, or if there are existing SCXML application sessions are already running for this customer. Context Services exposes a set of RESTful APIs to access the customer context data.  Refer to Context Services for more information about the RESTFul interface and Context Services. The following is an example of how you would use this REST APIs from and SCXML application - details on CS REST API . <!-- This is the IdentifyByPhoneNumber CS API request. -->

Outbound Contact Campaigns

The campaign calling list record control actions will be handled through the <fetch> action. The Outbound Contact Server campaign-related HTTP APIs will be mapped to the <fetch> attributes and child elements. See Outbound Contact 8.0 Reference Manual for the detailed specification of the interface (Chapter 3, "OCS Support for HTTP Protocol"). Important <fetch>-related usage notes with the Outbound Web 2.0 APIs:

  • The method attribute value is always "post".
  • The enctype attribute value is always "application/json".
  • The type attribute value is always "application/json".
  • The <param> name attribute is always "record".

The following is the general mapping to <fetch>, while the sub-sections are detailed mappings and examples for the functions that will be supported.

<session:fetch requestid="_data.reqid"
		srcexpr="'http://cvserver1.com/<resource>/<id>?req=actionx'"
		method="post" type="application/json" enctype="application/json">
	<param name="record" expr="_data.rmyrecord"/>
</session:fetch>

<resource> can be:

  • records - This contains the campaign records:
    • <id> - This will be the ID of the record.
  • phones - This is the phone number associated with a record or set of records:
    • <id> - This will be the phone number.
  • customer_ids - This is the customer ID associated with a record or set of records:
    • <id> - This will be the customer ID.

		Record.GSW_TZ_NAME = "'PST";
		Record.GSW_CALL_RESULT = 28;
		Record.STATUS_CODE = "New";
		Record.CUSTOMER_STATUS = 5;
		Record.GSW_CAMPAIGN = "New Productx";
	</script>
	
	<session:fetch
			srcexpr="http://server1.genesyslab.com:8080/records/?req=AddRecord"
