The Workforce Management (WFM) Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) database schema enables Genesys Interactive Insights and other third-party reporting applications to easily create reports that incorporate Genesys WFM data. Once configured, this functionality can obtain Schedule, Adherence, and Performance information from WFM and store it into a documented relational database schema.
The ETL schema can co-exist with the main operational WFM database, be a standalone database, or part of any other database. WFM provides the SQL script to create the database schema, but does not specify which physical tablespace, user, or database on which to create it. The script is included in WFM Database Utility (DBU) IP, but is not executed automatically by the DBU.
To set up an ETL database, see Using ETL Database Schema in the Workforce Management Administrator's Guide.
