Campaign Group Status Reporting
Starting with release 8.1.512.02, Outbound Contact Server can send data about Campaign Group state changes to a Web or Application server. The data is communicated to the Web or Application server using HTTP POST. The following states and information can be reported:
- Campaign Group loaded
- Campaign Group started
- Campaign Group stopped
- Campaign Group unloaded
- Campaign Group dial mode change
OCS can also periodically send data about active Campaign Groups, with a user-configurable time interval.
Starting with release 8.1.517.04, OCS submits a set of real-time statistics related to the Campaign Group and its Calling Lists in the Campaign Group State POST HTTP notifications.
The following table describes statistics-related attributes that OCS passes to an external Web/Application server in the JSON body of the HTTP notification:
|GSW_STAT_BUSY_FACTOR||Non-negative numeric or null||Campaign Group||
|GSW_STAT_HIT_RATIO||Non-negative numeric or null||
|GSW_STAT_OVERDIAL_RATE||Non-negative numeric or null||Campaign Group||
|GSW_STAT_TIME_TO_COMPLETE||Non-negative numeric or null||
To configure this feature, use the following configuration options:
- Set send-campaigngroup-states to true to enable the feature.
- Set campaigngroup-states-uri to the URI of the Web or Application server.
- If you want to generate periodic messages about current Campaign Group activity that also contain Campaign Group statistics, set campaigngroup-states-interval to the frequency at which you want to send the messages (the default is 10 seconds).
OCS uses the following options to retrieve connection information about the configuration:
OCS uses the following Trace-level log messages to report that HTTP POST requests have been sent. No actions are required in response to these events.
