In the Column List:

  • P = Primary key
  • M = Mandatory field
  • F = Foreign key (where the term is used loosely to indicate a surrogate key reference to a field in another table, not a formal constraint)
  • DV = Default value
  • In the Data Type column, varchar/nvarchar means that the data type is varchar except in multi-language databases that use Unicode, in which case the data type is nvarchar.



Introduced: 8.5.011

In partitioned databases, this table is not partitioned.

This dimension table allows Bot Gateway Server (BGS) session facts to be described based on the name of the bot used in the session.

Column List


Column Data Type P M F DV
ID int X X
BOT_NAME nvarchar(50) X NO_VALUE
CREATE_AUDIT_KEY numeric(19) X X


The primary key of this table. This ID is referenced from other tables as BGS_BOT_NAME_DIM_KEY.


The ChatBotID-ChatBotName pair that identifies the bot, where:

  • ChatBotID is the ID of the BGS bot plugin. This ID, which is hardcoded inside the bot, is always present.
  • ChatBotName is the name of the "external" bot (for example, if the bot plugin implements a connector to other bot frameworks). The ChatBotName value is not always present.


The surrogate key that is used to join to the CTL_AUDIT_LOG control table. The key specifies the lineage for data creation. This value can be useful for aggregation, enterprise application integration (EAI), and ETL tools—that is, applications that need to identify newly added data.
