Key Actions

Access to metrics must be configured by an administrator in Genesys Configuration Server (Role-based Access Control (RBAC)). Data relating to or depending on metrics to which users have no permissions will not be displayed.

Users record the key action taken to resolve the violations when creating a key action report. They might select the key action from the Key Action drop-down list or enter a new key action. In addition, users can suggest that the entered key action be added to the drop-down list for future use. The table of key actions is maintained on the Key Actions page in the Administration module. The following screenshot shows the Key Actions page.

Key Action Details

The details of a key action include:

  • Name: The name of the key action. The name must be unique and is not case sensitive. If the name is modified, it will change on existing key action reports.
  • Author: Properties that identify the person who created the key action on the Key Actions page or on a key action report. These are the person’s first and last name, or email address, or username, depending on what is available in the Configuration Server. The author is display only.
  • Metric (optional): The metric to which the key action applies. A key action associated to a metric is available on the Action Management page only if the metric matches one of the alerts for the key action report. Key actions without a defined metric are available on the Action Management page for all alerts.
    The metric cannot be changed if it is included in a key action report, but it can always be removed. Only metrics that can have a threshold rule display in the drop-down list. The drop-down list shows the display names of the metrics within a metric type.
    If the key action is suggested from the Action Management page, the metric defaults to unselected.
  • Display Order: The location of the key action in the Key Actions drop-down list on the Action Management page. Key actions without a sequence number display in alphabetical order. The range of the display order is 30.
  • Approved: The status of the key action is either approved or unapproved. When added from the Key Actions page, the Approved check box is automatically selected. When suggested from the Action Management page, the Approved check box is unselected (unapproved).

From the Key Actions page, you can:

  • Add a new key action to be available in the Key Action drop-down list on the Action Management page.
  • Approve key actions.
  • Edit a key action.
  • Delete one or more key actions that are not used and not included in a key action report.
Tip
The number of archived key action reports/alert combinations will grow over time. Historical data might affect performance. To remove key action reports/alert combinations, see Purge Key Action Reports and Historical Alerts in the Genesys Performance Management Advisors Deployment Guide.
