API Commands

Once you've registered your own plugin on the bus, you can call commands on other registered plugins. Below we'll quickly register a new plugin on the bus using the global bus object.

Important
The global bus object is a debug tool. When implementing Widgets on your own site, do not use the global bus object to register your custom plugins. Instead, see Widgets Extensions for more information about extending Genesys Widgets.


var oMyPlugin = window._genesys.widgets.bus.registerPlugin('MyPlugin');
 
oMyPlugin.command('WebChatService.getAgents');
Important
Starting 9.0.008.04 version, WebChatService allows you to choose between the types of chat API services available in Genesys via the transport section configuration options. For more information, see the “Options” table in WebChatService Configuration.

configure

Internal use only. The main App plugin shares configuration settings to widgets using each widget’s configure command. The configure command can only be called once at startup. Calling configure again after startup may result in unpredictable behavior.

startChat

Initiates a new chat session with the chat server via GMS or with the service configured under transport section. Intended to be used by WebChat widgets only. Should not be invoked manually.

Example

oMyPlugin.command('WebChatService.startChat', {
 
	nickname: 'Jonny',
	firstname: 'Johnathan',
	lastname: 'Smith',
	email: 'jon.smith@mail.com',
	subject: 'product questions',
	userData: {}
 
}).done(function(e){
 
	// WebChatService started a chat successfully
 
}).fail(function(e){
 
	// WebChatService failed to start chat
});


Options

Option Type Description
nickname string Chat Entry Form Data: 'nickname'.
firstname string Chat Entry Form Data: 'firstname'.
lastname string Chat Entry Form Data: 'lastname'.
email string Chat Entry Form Data: 'email'.
subject string Chat Entry Form Data: 'subject'.
userData object Arbitrary data to attach to the chat session (AKA attachedData). Properties defined here will be merged with default userData set in the configuration object.

oMyPlugin.command('WebChatService.endChat').done(function(e){
 
	// WebChatService ended a chat successfully
 
}).fail(function(e){
 
	// WebChatService failed to end chat
});


Resolutions

Status When Returns
resolved When active session is ended successfully (AJAX Response Object)
rejected If no chat session is currently active 'There is no active chat session'

sendMessage

	// WebChatService sent a custom message successfully
