Upgrade Notes

To deploy this installation package within an existing Interaction Concentrator 8.1.x environment, review the notes in this section and make the necessary upgrades, following the procedures in Appendix: Migration Procedures in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide.

  1. If your current Interaction Concentrator schema version is earlier than version 8.1.514.16, run the necessary Upgrade_N.N.NNN.NN_<db_type>.sql upgrade scripts. See Appendix: Migration Procedures topic for instructions on how to determine which upgrade scripts to run.

To deploy this installation package within a new Interaction Concentrator 8.1.x environment, follow the procedures in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide.

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


This release adds security headers to the HTTP Listener feature, which was deprecated in release 8.1.512.08 and higher. These headers prevent false positive security scanner alarms. (ICON-6010)


When connecting to SIP Server/T-Server, ICON now handles the connection process as a single transaction. If any step fails, ICON drops the connection and immediately restarts the connection process.

NOTE: This functionality requires that your T-Server/SIP Server/Network T-Server support ISCC Transaction Monitoring. See the Known Limitations entry for ICON-6041 for a description of this issue.

(ICON-6000)


In a SIP Cluster environment, ICON now closes all calls that were not confirmed as active after reconnecting to SIP Server. If your environment requires that such calls should be handled differently, configure the new Switch-level sync-calls-on-switchover configuration option. This option is enabled by default. To preserve legacy behavior, where ICON does not close such calls, set the value for the sync-calls-on-switchover configuration option, which is 1 (enabled) by default, to 0. (ICON-5987)


When Interaction Concentrator is processing unusually large numbers of pending stuck calls and login sessions, ICON now splits them into multiple transactions. Previously in such a scenario, ICON wrote all stuck calls and login sessions into a single, extremely large, transaction. As a result, DBServer, when processing the transactions, generated an error and could not move forward to process later transactions. (ICON-5980)


In a SIP Cluster environment, if an EmployeeID contains non-English characters in a multi-language configuration environment, ICON now finds the corresponding agent and writes the correct AgentID into the G_LOGIN_SESSION table. Previously, if ICON encountered non-English characters in the EmployeeID, it wrote the value NULL in the AgentID field. (ICON-5975)

These incomplete UTF-8 symbols might occur when a long data string is truncated in the middle of a multi-byte UTF-8 character. (ICON-5583; ICON-5584)


Interaction Concentrator running in a SIP Cluster environment now correctly restores the existing session after a brief disconnection. (ICON-5876)

ICON no longer ceases to write data associated with a configured role (a provider) when it receives a database error while updating the SeqCurrent field in the G_PROV_CONTROL table for that type of data. (ICON-5710)


ICON now records updates to the ContactId key that it receives in EventProcessingStopped into the corresponding field in the GM_L_USERDATA table. Previously, ICON did not update the ContactId value if you explicitly set a ContactId key name in the attached data specification file. (ICON-5655)


ICON now prints the GTS Core Components library version to the log on startup, as it has always done with versions of other libraries. (ICON-5557)


ICON now logs values for the ChatServerSessionClientLeftAt and ChatServerSessionClosedAt keys received from EventProcessingStopped to the G_USERDATA_HISTORY table. (ICON-4996)


The PSEQ and CSEQ values stored in G_PARTY_HISTORY for transition failure records (FSM error reporting) are now correct. (ICON-4587)


ICON now stores the correct timestamp from the MediaStateChangedAt field in the EventPlaceAgentState event to the created_ts field of the GX_SESSION_ENDPOINT table when a new media type is added to a session. (ICON-4295)


ICON running in a SIP Cluster environment no longer generates an unnecessary error message when the SIP Server HA pair with which it is connected switches between the primary and backup instances. Previously, ICON generated the following error message: Error Event: LinkConnected/PrimChange -> ApplicationName is absent. (ICON-4241)


ICON now stores reason codes for all available media. Previously, if an agent had login sessions on multiple media, software reason code changes were applied only to the first of these media. (ICON-3934)

Upgrade Notes

To deploy this installation package within an existing Interaction Concentrator 8.1.x environment, review the notes in this section and make the necessary upgrades, following the procedures in the Appendix: Migration Procedures in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide.

  1. If your current Interaction Concentrator schema version is earlier than version 8.1.514.11, run the necessary Upgrade_N.N.NNN.NN_<db_type>.sql upgrade scripts. See the Appendix: Migration Procedures topic for instructions on how to determine which upgrade scripts to run.
  2. All users must run the following scripts:
  3. To upgrade your purge procedures:

To deploy this installation package within a new Interaction Concentrator 8.1.x environment, follow the procedures in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide.

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


When ICON is running in an environment with a high-availability (HA) pair of Interaction Servers (for example, ISvr-1 and ISvr-2), and the backup server (ISvr-2) takes over the primary role, ICON continues to recognize the correct Interaction Server instance (ISvr-2) as the primary server after a disconnection from and reconnection to Configuration Server. (ICON-5624)


The Interaction Concentrator XML metadata file, which provides option descriptions, default values, and valid values for display in Genesys Administrator, has been brought up to date.

Note: Options that accept both 0/1 and false/true as valid Boolean values present only 0/1 for selection in the Genesys Administrator interface. You can manually set the option values to true/false, if desired. (ICON-5599, ICON-5597)


In environments running a Microsoft SQL IDB, ICON now writes the attribute data associated with a message ID stored in the G_LOG_MESSAGES table to the G_LOG_ATTRS table row containing the corresponding MESSAGE_ID value. Previously, in certain scenarios, the data flow sequence disrupted the link between the message ID and the associated content. This issue did not affect IDBs running Oracle, PostgreSQL, or DB2. (ICON-5574)


The names of some stored procedures were changed so that the name combined with the version number did not exceed the 30 character maximum allowed for Oracle databases earlier than version 12c R2. (ICON-5574)


In SIP Cluster deployments, ICON correctly stores CallUUID and PartyUUID values in the G_CUSTOM_DATA_S and G_CUSTOM_DATA_P tables for custom data records that were attached during an active call. (ICON-5194)


This release improves ICON logging by ensuring that when a Tenant is dynamically removed from the Tenants tab in the Interaction Concentrator Application object, you no longer receive the following misleading error message: MCR: internal error, connection to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is in wrong state. (ICON-4768)


Interaction Concentrator log message 09-25031 has been corrected to read : Std 25031 Persistent queue 'GUD' for '<Persistent_queue_manager>' disconnected from database. Previously, the log message read as follows: Std 25031 Persistent queue '<Persistent_queue_manager>' for 'GUD' disconnected from database. (ICON-4560)


Interaction Concentrator no longer starts an incorrect new 2-step conference transaction in the following scenario:

  1. At least four parties, including an external party, are conferenced.
  2. The external party leaves the conference first.

ICON now correctly uses security parameters from Application- and Host-level configuration settings to connect to Message Server via TLS. Previously, ICON could not establish a TLS connection to Message Server, if the security settings were configured on any other level than Connection. (ICON-5460)

The following options have been adjusted to support dynamic changes to the values, which is consistent with the documentation:

Also, the description of the acc-proc-tout option now correctly states that it has a hard-coded value of 1 second and does not require you to specify a value. If you enter a different value for this option, Interaction Concentrator disregards it. This behavior applies to all 8.x releases of Interaction Concentrator. (ICON-5535)


Interaction Concentrator now correctly writes data to IDB after a reconnection that happened while writing records incrementally (one-by-one). Previously, if a disconnection from DB Server occurred in such a scenario, current transactions that were not yet written into IDB were cleared from memory and were not loaded from the PQ file after reconnection.

IMPORTANT: If your environment requires userdata values longer than 255 characters, you must set a larger value for this option. (ICON-5478)


A switchover from one T-Server instance to the other in a high availability (HA) pair during a call no longer causes the agent state to change. Previously, such a switchover resulted in Interaction Concentrator setting the agent state based on the current state provided by the newly-active T-Server, not taking into account the fact that the agent might still have an active call.

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


Interaction Concentrator no longer terminates abnormally in the following scenario:

(ICON-5495)


Interaction Concentrator now supports more accurate reporting of complex Redirect Call scenarios. (ICON-5490)


This release of Interaction Concentrator resolves a performance issue related to the stored procedures for IDBs running Microsoft SQL. This issue was introduced in release 8.1.510.07, when Interaction Concentrator added Unicode support for Microsoft SQL. Interaction Concentrator performance was affected by the datatypes used in the affected versions. (ICON-5440)


The Interaction Concentrator Core schema initialization script for PostgreSQL now includes DROP statements for the G_DSS_*_PROVIDER tables, which are required to correctly re-initialize IDB. This correction applies to the following tables:

(ICON-5432)


Interaction Concentrator in an Outbound environment now correctly populates the NODATA_IUTC and LEVENT_DSUTC fields in the G_DSS_GOS_PROVIDER table when processing EventGOSnapshotData distributed by Outbound Contact Server. Previously, incorrect values in those fields led to issues with downstream reporting solutions. (ICON-5400)


Interaction Concentrator, in a multimedia environment with an IDB running Microsoft SQL no longer generates uniqueness errors in the following scenario:

Previously, after receiving the second Event, ICON treated it as if it were coming from a new interaction and tried to add it to the GM_F_USERDATA table, but using the same CallID as for the first, resulting in a uniqueness error. (ICON-5298)

ICON, writing into an Oracle IDB, no longer generates duplicated IDs for call custom data records for unreliable calls (that is, calls in which ICON did not monitor the entire lifespan of the call). Previously in this scenario, ICON occasionally generated one of the following error messages: unique constraint (PK_G_CALL_USERDATC) violated or unique constraint (PK_G_CALL_UDATC2) violated. (ICON-5144)


The gsysPurge81 procedure now uses UTC time to identify purge intervals. The retention parameter now specifies the number of days starting from the current UTC day. Previous versions of the purge procedure could retain one extra day or delete one extra day depending on local time differences with UTC, and, as a result, ICON would delete all current data if the retention parameter was 1 day. (ICON-4981)


The Interaction Concentrator Physical Data Model documents now correctly specify that the PARTYID field in the G_CUSTOM_DATA_S and G_CUSTOM_DATA_P tables actually stores the PARTYGUID value. This is the desired behavior. (ICON-4938)


ICON no longer generates an error message when it has its role set to cfg and Interaction Server is present on the Connections tab. Previously in this scenario, the following error message appeared during startup:

Std 20010 Configuration error. Class [CKLinkProc] : Unsupported switch type 'InteractionServer-1'

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


Running Interaction Concentrator in an environment with SIP Server 8.1.102.13 or higher and with the use-server-partyuuid configuration option set to 1 no longer leads to data quality issues in Genesys Info Mart.

Note: For backwards compatibility, the new default value for this option is 0. (ICON-5083, ICON-5099)


ICON can now establish multiple connections to an Interaction Server configured as multiple T-Server applications, even when these applications have the same host and port. Previously, ICON ignored T-Server applications with duplicated host and port information. (ICON-5082)


ICON no longer terminates unexpectedly when it does not find party information because of a missing attribute in Interaction Server events. Previously, Interaction Server releases earlier than 8.1.400.18 sometimes omitted attr_party_type from events, resulting in ICON stopping. (ICON-5069)


The description of the use-server-partyuuid configuration option in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide now explains that the parent party identified by SIP Server may not correspond to the ICON parent party. For example, if the parent party is associated with an external routing point, SIP Server reports the grandparent (as reported by ICON) as a parent party. (ICON-5028)


When ICON has the cfg role set and is running on LINUX, it no longer experiences disconnects from DB Server or Configuration Server. Previously, these disconnects meant that ICON failed to initialize IDB, resulting in an abnormally large cfg-sync.db file and high CPU usage. (ICON-4997)


Interaction Concentrator, when running with the gls-enable-acw-busy configuration option set to 0 and the gls-enforce-reason-code configuration option set to 1, 2, or 3, no longer experiences incorrect termination of reason codes that are created on a queue and before a new call event (such as EventDialing) arrives.

Corrections and Modifications

This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


The installation packages for AIX and Solaris no longer contain 32-bit executables. Note that the installation package for Linux continues to include a 32-bit executable. (ICON-5009)


When ICON experiences three or more errors one after another during the same database transaction, ICON now waits 30 seconds before submitting such a transaction again. (ICON-4927, ICON-4951)


The Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide has been updated to indicate configuration requirements for international language encoding on Oracle and PostgreSQL databases. For details, see Internationalization Settings. (ICON-4936)


ICON no longer has a memory leak when an Outbound campaign is unloaded. Previously, ICON kept Outbound chains in memory if a chain unloading event arrived after the associated campaign was unloaded. (ICON-4786)


Interaction Concentrator now stores data on stuck calls, login sessions, agent states, and virtual queue records in a way that enables downstream reporting applications, such as Genesys Info Mart, to provide correct interaction reporting. Previously, problems could occur if data was stored with the session ID from before a data provider switchover or other data interruption, where the ending timestamp belonged to the session following the interruption. (ICON-455, ICON-465, ICON-4581)


ICON now retains reason code data for reason code states that started, but were not completed, before a data provider switchover, data interruption, or ICON restart. (ICON-4391)


In scenarios with stuck calls, interactions, or virtual queues, ICON now stores the timestamp indicating when the decision was made that the call, interaction, or virtual queue was stuck. (ICON-3987)

The description of the purgePartitions811 stored procedure in the Interaction Concentrator User's Guide has been updated for clarity and accuracy. (ICON-4885)


The ICON purge procedure for partitioned Oracle RDBMSs (purgePartitions811) now correctly uses UTC days to determine the number of days to retain in the database and to ensure that the start and end times for each day are consistent. Previously, ICON sometimes incorrectly used local time to identify the current partition and used UTC time to drop partitions. As a result, ICON might retain up to a full day more or fewer than expected, depending on the difference between local time and UTC time. (ICON-4911, ICON-4914)

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    ICON now correctly handles the lookup-queue-on-ringing option for SIP Server Cluster when you have not set a value. Previously, by default, ICON would interpret this option value as false and ignore AttributeThisQueue from EventRinging in cluster scenarios. ICON now uses a default value of true when you have not set any value for this option. (ICON-4905)


    ICON can now work with SIP Cluster when it has been set to the gcc role only. Previously, ICON would fail to start if the gud role was absent and SIP Server Cluster was configured on the ICON Connections tab. (ICON-4894)


    Interaction Concentrator now correctly parses EventMediaStateReasonChanged that does not contain attr_reason* attributes. Previously, such events would cause ICON to throw an exception. (ICON-4875)


    T-Events and SQL statements no longer display keys in KV pairs inconsistently when the default-filter-type option is set to skip. Now, in such configurations, ICON displays neither keys nor values. (ICON-4865)


    On Oracle databases, ICON now correctly skips past a record when virtual queue information (the RPVQID key of the attached data) is attached before actual routing or after call deletion, rather than attempting to insert the record into the G_ROUTE_RES_VQ_HIST table. Previously in this scenario, ICON writing to an Oracle database would generate the ORA-01400 error message, preventing future processing of interaction data. (ICON-4834, ICON-4534)


    When ICON is connected to a primary/backup HA T-Server pair, and one T-Server is moved to a new host and port, ICON no longer generates the following debug-level error message after receiving EventServerDisconnected: Unhandled transition state. (ICON-4381)

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    The ICON database Upgrade_8.1.400.15_mssql.sql script for Microsoft SQL now correctly updates the IDX_G_PARTY_IDX index. The previous version of this script failed to update this index. (ICON-4810)


    When connecting to a primary/backup SIP Server pair, ICON no longer incorrectly remains connected to the SIP Server functioning as the backup. Previously, ICON occasionally connected to the SIP Server functioning in backup mode, incorrectly mistaking it for the SIP Server functioning in primary mode, which resulted in data loss. (ICON-4797 )


    The gsysPurge81 stored procedure now prevents a second instance of the purge procedure from starting on DB2 RDBMSs. Previously, it was possible to start two purge processes on DB2 simultaneously, which could result in numerous errors in the purge log (G_LOG_MESSAGES table). (ICON-4792, ICON-3984, ER# 267047729)


    The valid values given in the Interaction Concentrator User's Guide for the isOnline chat attribute have been corrected in the 08/03/15 update to the document. The value NULL has been added to the list of valid values. (ICON-4813)


    The valid value for minimum re-registration timeout in the gcti-re-registration-tout configuration option has been corrected in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide; 0 is now included as a valid value. (ICON-4559)

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    ICON now ignores configuration changes to objects not supported by Interaction Concentrator. Previously, ICON could sometimes quit unexpectedly while processing configuration object changes. (ICON-4745 )


    You must now restart ICON for a change to the value of the lookup-queue-on-ringing Switch-level configuration option to take effect. Previously, such a change took effect dynamically. (ICON-4746)


    The default value for the delivered-flag Switch-level configuration option has been corrected for the Cisco CallManager switch type. The correct value, 2, now appears in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide. (ICON-4753)


    ICON now correctly handles situations in which the input parameter for COUNT_DAYS is incorrect (less than or equal to zero) for the gsysPurge81 stored procedure. The error message ID 09-6025 is now being correctly written to the G_LOG_MESSAGES and G_LOG_ATTRS tables.

    Note: The separate purge procedures—gsysPurgeUDH, gsysPurgeIR, gsysPurgeLS, and gsysPurgeOS—have been discontinued starting in release 8.1.503.03. To purge, use the gsysPurge81 or purgePartitions811 stored procedures. For a discussion of all of the purge stored procedures, see Purge Stored Procedures in the Interaction Concentrator User's Guide. (ICON-4005, ER # 281401786 )

    Note: This release of Interaction Concentrator is built with Interaction Database (IDB) schema version 8.1.400.16. This release does not require you to update your database schema.

    There are no restrictions for this release. The following new features were introduced in this release of Interaction Concentrator:

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    ICON now writes a new Standard Level log message when the length of a Virtual Agent Group script expression exceeds the database field size. It also truncates the value to the allowed length, which is 255 characters. The new log message reads as follows: 25109|STANDARD|ICON_DATA_VALUE_TRUNCATED|The value of <configuration_object_name> attribute <truncated_attribute_name> has been truncated to <truncated_attribute_value> because the length exceeded the database field size. (ICON-4723)


    ICON now ignores reason codes with a null or empty key on Oracle databases and writes the following message in the log: 25141|ICON_EMPTY_REASON_CODE_KEY. Previously, ICON sometimes wrote a reason code record with key=null; such records caused issues in Genesys Info Mart, which did not expect them. (ICON-4718)


    In Microsoft SQL databases, the gsysPurge81 stored procedure now runs correctly with a date format that is different from the default US data format (MM-DD-YYYY). Previously in this scenario, the procedure would exit with an error message, such as Error converting data type varchar to datetime data type. (ICON-4690)


    After you change the name of an empty Agent Group in the configuration (one having no agents assigned to it), the IDB that stores configuration data now correctly reflects the changes. Previously, such changes to Agent Group names were not updated in IDB. (ICON-4676)


    This release removes the limitation on the number of items in the hash table, which contains the list of transactions for processing. Previously, when ICON encountered this limitation, it generated the following error message: [GCC]: Error. Transaction [transaction_id] was added to queue_history bat not to hash table. (ICON-4656)


    With this release, ICON now processes changes to options configured on the Switch object either dynamically or upon ICON restart, in accordance to the option descriptions in the Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide. (ICON-4633, ICON-4616)


    The following new log messages indicate that ICON has read the configuration, connected to T-Server, and completed DN registration:

    These messages are all written to Message Server. (ICON-4580)


    The Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide contains corrected descriptions of the following configuration options:

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    ICON now sets the GSYS_EXT_INT1 field in the GC_ANNEX table to 1 during configuration resynchronization. Previously ICON did not do so and, as a result, Genesys Info Mart gathering data from two ICONs in HA mode, both of which had the cfg role, might not see Annex tab data during a period when neither ICON instance monitored Annex tab information. This was likely to happen during ICON migration when existing ICONs started monitoring Annex tab data. (ICON-4525)


    When you stop the ICON server after it has had one or more disconnections and reconnections to Configuration Server, the termination process now completes correctly. (ICON-4413)


    When connected to a high availability T-Server pair, after a dynamic change to the host and port for the primary T-Server, ICON no longer creates a NODATA_TIMEOUT record in G_DSS* provider tables in spite of having received data about call activity. (ICON-4254)

    In multimedia environments, Interaction Concentrator now correctly processes changes made to the enabled/disabled state of Agent configuration objects. Previously, these changes were not processed correctly. As a result, it was possible for ICON to generate the following error message regarding an enabled agent:

    [MCR AGENTMAN] INFO: No Agent with Employee ID <employee_id> in configuration

    (ICON-4457)


    Interaction Concentrator now correctly handles conferenced calls in which an agent alternates between the main call and the consultation call before conferencing them together. (ICON-4421)


    In scenarios such as those provided as examples below, Interaction Concentrator now terminates the agent’s party with the correct result of Cleared/Distributed:

    Previously in these and similar scenarios, Interaction Concentrator terminated the agent’s party with the result Connection_cleared/Normal. The Cleared/Distributed result notifies Genesys Info Mart that the interaction was pulled from the agent rather than completed by the agent. (ICON-4420)

    If Interaction Concentrator is monitoring offline multimedia interactions when they are pulled from a queue by a strategy or an agent, and after that the interaction data is lost (for example, because ICON is restarted), ICON now correctly processes subsequent events for the same interactions. Previously, such scenarios could cause various uniqueness violation errors in IDB. (ICON-4372)


    The description of the gls-acw-first configuration option in the Interaction Concentrator 8.1 Deployment Guide has been revised to explain how ICON determines which interaction should be associated with after-call work. (ICON-4332)


    Interaction Concentrator now correctly updates the Event_ID in the configuration details even when the event makes no changes in the IDB. Previously, in this situation ICON did not update the Event_ID, which led ICON to perform an unnecessary resynchronization. (ICON-159)

    This release contains no new features or functionality.

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    A new configuration option, ring-divert, enables support for T-Server event flows in which EventRinging comes before EventDiverted. You can set this option in the Annex section either of the Switch or the DN configuration object, or both. If it is set to a valid value, the DN option overrides the value set for the Switch.

    ring-divert
    Section Name: [gts]
    Default Value: 0
    Valid Values: 0, 1
    Changes Take Effect: If set for the Switch, changes take effect after ICON is restarted; if set for the DN, changes take effect immediately

    Controls whether ICON identifies the PARENTPARTYID and the PARENTLINKTYPE of the Ringing party in event flows in which EventRinging comes before EventDiverted or the call is routed to an external switch.

    Note: Interaction Concentrator does not support event flows in which EventRinging comes before EventDiverted for two-step transfer scenarios in which the transfer is completed before the call rings on the target DN. This is the case even if you set the ring-divert option value to 1. (ICON-4380)


    ICON now writes the correct DSS session time range (the values for the LEVENT_ITIME, LEVENT_DSTIME, and LEVENT_DSUTC fields) in the G_DSS_CFG_PROVIDER table. Previously, ICON sometimes stored a DSS time range that did not cover all Configuration Server objects that were extracted during the same DSS session. As a result, Genesys Info Mart could not extract all of the available configuration details, meaning that some objects might be missing from the Genesys Info Mart RESOURCE_ table and some objects and object relationships might be missing from Genesys Info Mart dimension and fact tables.

    This release contains no new features or functionality.

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    Interaction Concentrator now correctly handles call merges initiated by an external party. Previously, such a merge could lead to a memory leak in Interaction Concentrator and cause ICON to generate the following debug-level error message:

    Processing error 6:'Cannot move party <DN> from <CALLID1> to <CALLID2> on event EventCallDeleted (162)'.

    (ICON-4343)


    The setting for the om-memory-optimization option no longer overrides the setting for the calls-in-the-past option. Previously, setting the om-memory-optimization option to true could cause old interactions to be re-created in spite of setting the calls-in-the-past option to false. (ICON-4330)


    In release 8.1.100.36 and higher, if Interaction Concentrator is monitoring offline multimedia interactions when they are pulled from a queue by a strategy or an agent, and after that the interaction data is lost (for example, because ICON is restarted), ICON now correctly processes the StopProcessing event. Previously, such scenarios caused an error in IDB—a uniqueness violation in the G_PARTY_STAT table. (ICON-4327)


    Interaction Concentrator now preserves the time order of the skills in the GCX_SKILL_LEVEL table. Previously, the termination time for the previous record could be later than the creation time for the new record. Note that the timestamps for the addition or deletion of a skill may not reflect the actual time when the skill was changed but rather the time when Interaction Concentrator detected this change—for example, after resynchronization. (ICON-4323)


    Interaction Concentrator is now able to correctly handle situations in which a transaction cannot be removed from the persistent queue (pq). Previously, such a situation resulted in an endless processing loop and required a restart of Interaction Concentrator to correct the issue. (ICON-4320)


    The Interaction Concentrator purge procedure has been updated to purge non-terminated records from the G_IS_LINK table. Previously, because the value written to the terminated field in the G_IS_LINK table was always NULL, the purge procedure did not delete non-terminated records when you set the deleteAllFlag option to 0. This caused the G_IS_LINK table to grow.

    Partitioned Oracle IDBs did not have this problem; the purge procedure always dropped partitions that were marked for purging whether they contained terminated or non-terminated records. (ICON-82; ICON-483; ER# 277876184)

    This release contains no new features or functionality.

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    In a deployment with a primary and backup pair of T-Servers, ICON no longer attempts to register for a DN that has been removed from the configuration environment. Previously, ICON sent RequestRegisterAddress for a removed DN after the backup T-Server restarted. (ICON-4333)


    This release improves processing of notifications about configuration changes that the ICON with the cfg role receives from Configuration Server. Notifications are now processed during the time periods when ICON detects no activity on the Configuration Server connection. Previously, ICON could disconnect from Configuration Server at ADDP timeout during processing of configuration changes. (ICON-354; ER# 313481140)


    ICON now correctly processes various combinations of settings for the gls-enforce-reason-code and gls-queue configuration options. Previously, when the gls-queue configuration option was set to 1, ICON terminated both software and hardware reason codes on the devices to which an agent was logged in, as if the gls-enforce-reason-code option were equal to 3. (ICON-4127; ER# 311542531)


    ICON no longer terminates when receiving corrupted user data. Previously, ICON was unable to handle user data that was packed incorrectly and could terminate abnormally. (ICON-476; ER# 323156196)


    An improvement in transaction processing for a persistent queue (PQ) file prevents any new transactions against the PQ file during configuration resynchronization. Previously, when synchronization of configuration data was taking a long time in a large configuration environment, another provider could open a new transaction and, as a result, could interrupt resynchronization with the following error:

    [SQLITE] Error [1], text [cannot start a transaction within a transaction]
    (ICON-198; ER# 300542501)


    ICON now assigns both hardware and software reason codes to a related DN state if T-Server reports reason codes in EventRegistered. Previously, if ICON started while a login session was in progress, ICON did not record reason codes correctly. (ICON-4137; ER# 312220956)


    In an environment with primary and backup T-Servers, ICON now switches over to process data from the backup T-Server promptly after the primary T-Server disconnects on the server side (for example, due to an ADDP timeout). Previously, ICON did not re-register with the other T-Server in the pair for a few hours after such a disconnect and received no T-Server data for up to 24 hours. (ICON-474; ER# 322681375)


    This release improves processing of agent states data in two-step transfer and conference scenarios. Previously, ICON processed agent states data when it received EventCallDeleted, which resulted in incorrect values for the PartyID in the G_AGENT_STATE_HISTORY table. Also, ICON stored incorrect PartyID values when the gls-acw-first configuration option was set to 0. A new configuration option, gls-improve-data-for-agent, which is set in the gts section at the Switch configuration object, enables the improved processing logic.

    gls-improve-data-for-agent
    Section Name: [gts]
    Default Value: 0
    Valid Values: 0, 1
    Changes Take Effect: After ICON is restarted

    Specifies when ICON processes agent states data in two-step transfer and conference scenarios. By default, the legacy behavior is preserved, and EventCallDeleted triggers agent states data processing. Set a value of 1 to enable ICON to process agent states data based on EventReleased and store a more accurate value of PartyID in the G_AGENT_STATE_HISTORY table when a record describes one of the following:

    Note: Genesys Info Mart customers should use the default value for this option.

    Interaction Concentrator now functions correctly when it accidentally deletes an internal object from its memory during T-Event processing for internal transfer scenarios. Previously, there was a slight chance that an object could be deleted before the event processing was complete, causing Interaction Concentrator to terminate unexpectedly. (ER#  314889288)


    Interaction Concentrator now functions correctly if a log file fails to open. Previously, a log file failing to open would cause Interaction Concentrator to enter an infinite loop. (ER# 314313146)


    A correction in SIP Server release 8.1.100.49 resolves an issue that appeared in Interaction Concentrator. When connected to SIP Server release 8.1.100.49 or higher, Interaction Concentrator now records the correct backup SIP Server name. (ER# 215087071)

    This release contains no new features or functionality.

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    Improved sequence tracking for user data in the G_USERDATA_HISTORY table enables downstream reporting applications, such as Genesys Info Mart, to correctly associate user data with interaction activity when user data updates occur within the same second as call transfer or termination. To preserve compatibility with legacy behavior, a new configuration option, cseq-adjustment, enables you to control whether or not ICON will implement the improved behavior.

    cseq-adjustment
    Section Name: [callconcentrator]
    Default Value: 0
    Valid Values: 0, 1, 2
    Changes Take Effect: Immediately

    Specifies whether ICON will implement corrected behavior regarding populating the CSEQ field in the G_USERDATA_HISTORY table.

    (ER# 312034811)


    ICON support for the processing of software (SW) and hardware (HW) reason code changes for multi-device login sessions has been enhanced. ("Multi-device login sessions" refers to scenarios in which an agent logs in to a DN and to one or more queues at the same time.) A new configuration option, gls-enforce-reason-code, enables you to control whether SW and HW reason code changes will be processed separately for separate devices.

    gls-enforce-reason-code
    Section Name: [callconcentrator]
    Default Value: 0
    Valid Values: 0, 1, 2, 3
    Changes Take Effect: After restart

    Specifies whether changes to the HW reason code or the SW reason code for a particular device will affect the HW reason code, SW reason code, or both types of reason code on all other devices on which an agent is logged in.

    Note: If gls-queue=1, ICON behaves as if gls-enforce-reason-code=3, even if you set a different value for the gls-enforce-reason-code option.

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    Interaction Concentrator now correctly processes removal of tenants from Configuration Server data that had been defined in the Tenants tab of the Interaction Concentrator Application object. Previously, processing the removal of a tenant that was defined on the Tenants tab from Configuration Server data caused memory corruption and then the unexpected shutdown of Interaction Concentrator. (ER# 299936720)


    Interaction Concentrator now correctly processes dynamic addition and removal of configuration objects. Previously, processing of dynamic deletion of configuration objects or addition of new objects sometimes led to memory corruption and then the unexpected shutdown of Interaction Concentrator. (ER# 297010142)


    After a disconnection from Configuration Server, Interaction Concentrator now restores the main connection first. After that connection is established, it restores the second connection to Configuration Server. Previously, Interaction Concentrator tried to restore both connections simultaneously, which sometimes caused endless cycling of connection attempts. (ER# 276940190)


    If the pq file is locked by a process such as an anti-virus program, Interaction Concentrator now correctly interprets the lock and waits to initialize until the file is available. If after several initialization attempts, the file remains locked, Interaction Concentrator generates an error message and exits. Previously if the pq file was locked, Interaction Concentrator sometimes tried to initialize the file anyway, leading to possible corruption of the pq file. (ER# 268257718)

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications:


    The behavior of two configuration options, x-server-config-trace-level and x-server-dbw-trace-level, is modified. Now if you specify values for these options, they no longer depend on the value of the x-server-trace-level option. (ER# 285775476)


    Running the drop_ICON_GIM8_0_idx_ora.sql script no longer generates error messages. Previously, the SQLPlus utility produced error messages when the script was run. (ER# 296551901)


    ICON now keeps track of T-Server subscription ids and, if ICON receives an event with an outdated subscription id, it requests the T-Server to stop this subscription. Previously after every T-Server switchover, ICON opened a new transaction monitoring session without closing the previous one. T-Server had to maintain multiple sessions and, as a result, sometimes terminated unexpectedly. (ER# 293034911)


    This release includes a number of changes made to configuration options that control logging.


    This version of Interaction Concentrator is built with a new version of the Log Library that addresses a memory leak related to log-message processing. (ER# 274633222)

    The merge procedure no longer fails in multi-site call scenarios when it encounters an IS_LINK with a failed status. Previously in such scenarios, the merge procedure failed with the following error messages:

    (ER#s 288560403, 287367256)


    When Interaction Concentrator is monitoring Agent session states on T-Servers, it now provides the creation time including milliseconds for active agent-state reason codes in the CREATED column of the G_AGENT_STATE_RC_A table. Previously, the records did not include milliseconds, which Genesys Info Mart uses to determine sequences of events within interactions. (ER# 288549524)


    Records in the G_IS_LINK table in IDB now point to the gsys_domain for the correct T-Server. Previously, in multi-site call scenarios when the IS_LINK status was failed, ICON stored an incorrect DSS_ID session in the G_IS_LINK table. As a result, Genesys Info Mart extracted data twice because it incorrectly appeared to be from two different sources. (ER# 288073714)


    When Interaction Concentrator is resynchronized with Configuration Server, it no longer updates the DSS provider session for already existing GC and GCX records if no fields were updated. (ER# 286901861)

    Corrections and Modifications

    This release includes the following corrections and modifications that were made between Release 8.0 or earlier and the initial 8.1 release:


    The LSEQ field in the G_AGENT_STATE_RC_A table now records the correct sequence number of the agent-state change within an agent login session. Previously, this value was incorrectly taken from LSEQ field for the just-closed reason code record in the G_AGENT_STATE_RC table. (ER# 281939541)


    A new configuration option, http-protocol-enabled, in the callconcentrator section enables you to control the HTTP connection to the ICON application port, to manage access to information about ICON activity. See the Interaction Concentrator 8.1 Deployment Guide for more information about this option. (ER# 259618594)


    ICON has improved the processing of calls during startup that were not terminated in ICON-IDB after the last run of ICON. Previously, when ICON encountered these calls during startup, long IDB requests may have timed out and resulted in repeated disconnections of ICON from DB Server. (ER# 247948598)


    Previously, if the system times on the hosts on which Genesys applications were running were not synchronized properly, reporting data may have been inaccurate. This issue has been corrected. (ER# 247832033)


    Previously, Interaction Concentrator inserted a negative duration value in the G_LOG_ATTRS table after running a merge procedure only in Microsoft SQL databases. This issue has been corrected. (ER# 241053781)

    Known Issues and Recommendations

    This section provides the latest information on known issues and recommendations associated with this product.


    Configuration Server 8.5 and higher accepts Person object Employee ID values of up to 255 characters. However, Interaction Concentrator only supports Employee ID values of 64 characters or fewer. This constraint applies to the value written to the EmployeeID field in the GC_AGENT table. (ICON-5780)


    In SIP Cluster deployments, single-step transfer operations with an Extension as the target might not be reported correctly. To ensure that such operations are correctly reported, use Route Points as single-step transfer destinations. (ICON-6060)
    Found In: 8.1.514.25 Fixed In: 

    Starting in release 8.1.514.25, the Interaction Concentrator connection and initialization protocol is dependent on the T-Server ISCC Transaction Monitoring feature. This feature is implemented in T-Servers (including SIP Server and Network T-Servers) based on the T-Server Common Part (TSCP) version 7.6.002.xx and higher. Genesys advises not to upgrade Interaction Concentrator to release 8.1.514.25 if your T-Server is based on TSCP 7.6.001.xx or below and therefore lacks this feature. All T-Servers/SIP Servers/Network T-Servers version 8.0 and higher are fully supported. To determine whether your T-Server supports ISCC Transaction Monitoring, check the Deployment Guide for your T-Server. A correction for this issue is planned for future release. (ICON-6041)
    Found In: 8.1.514.25 Fixed In: 8.1.514.26

    When you use Genesys Administrator to configure the ICON Application option, you cannot select a functional value for the x-print-attached-data option in the [log] section. The valid values displayed in Genesys Administrator are true and false; the actual valid values are 1 and 0. To resolve the issue, contact Genesys Customer Care. (ICON-5597)

    Found In: 8.1.514.09 Fixed In:  8.1.514.11

    Even when the same-dn option is set to 1, ICON does not support scenarios in which two consecutive DN-related events are pending for the same interaction. For details, see Recognizing the Correct DN in Environments Where Internal and External DNs Have the Same Name.


    The default value of the max-userdata-length option, 1024, can cause various stability, data recording, or downstream reporting problems. In certain instances when this occurs, ICON generates the following error message: 09-25005 database error received: status 0, description: unknown. To avoid these issues, set the option value to 255. (ICON-5496)

    UPDATE: The default value for this option was changed to 255 in release 8.1.514.06. If you are running Interaction Concentrator 8.1.514.06 or higher and your environment requires longer userdata values, you must set a larger value for this option.

    Found In: 8.1.512.08 Fixed In:  8.1.514.06

    When you dynamically change the value for the max-userdata-length configuration option, an incorrect error message appears. You can safely ignore this message. (ICON-5256)

    Found In: 8.1.512.08 Fixed In: 8.1.514.03

    Support for millisecond values in IDB on Microsoft SQL RDBMSs is limited because Miscosoft SQL stores datetime values with only ~7 millisecond precision. (ICON-5255)

    Found In: 8.1.512.08 Fixed In: 8.1.514.01

    Interaction Concentrator does not support SIP Server loop forward scenarios in which a consult call to an external destination (for example, extDN1) is eventually forwarded to a different external DN (for example, extDN2). (ICON-5220)


    In the Physical Data Model for a PostgreSQL Database guide, the datatypes for the ID field shown in the data model graphics in the following schemas are incorrect:

    The correct data types are shown in the tables. (ICON-5193)

    Found In: 8.1.511.01 Fixed In: 

    The CoreSchema_mssql.sql initialization script uses the nvarchar(255) datatype instead of the varchar(255) datatype in the following fields in the G_DSS_*_PROVIDER tables: CFG_SERVER, EXT_VCH1, EXT_VCH2, EXT_VCH3. This does not affect Interaction Concentrator functionality. Note that the Physical Data Model for a Microsoft SQL Database documents the correct varchar(255) datatype. (ICON-5189)


    ICON does not reconstruct the external party for a call if the external party DN name is the same as the local DN name of the originating party. (ICON-5029)


    Interaction Concentrator 8.1.508.09, running in an environment with SIP Server 8.1.102.13 or higher, and with the new use-server-partyuuid configuration option set to the default value (1), might cause data quality issues in Genesys Info Mart. These issues can occur because ICON populates the PARTYGUID field in the G_PARTY table with the SIP Server-based value, but populates the PARTYID field in the G_CUSTOM_DATA_S, the G_CUSTOM_STATES, and the G_CUSTOM_DATA_P tables with the ICON-generated PARTYGUID. (ICON-5099)

    Workaround: Manually set the value for the option to 0.

    Found In: 8.1.508.09 Fixed In: 8.1.509.07

    The parent party for an interaction as identified by SIP Server may not correspond to the parent party identified by ICON. For example, if the parent is an external routing point, SIP Server reports the grandparent as the parent party. (ICON-5028)

    Found In: 8.1.508.09 Fixed In: 8.1.509.07

    The value stored in the PSEQ field of the G_CUSTOM_DATA_S and G_CUSTOM_DATA_P tables is always 0. (ICON-4939)


    The PARTYID field in the G_CUSTOM_DATA_S and G_CUSTOM_DATA_P tables actually stores the PARTYGUID value. This is the desired behavior. The documentation will be updated to reflect this functionality. (ICON-4938)

    Found In: 8.1.507.06 Fixed In: 8.1.511.01

    Interaction Concentrator writes attributes from Interaction Server that have hardcoded KEYIDs only in the G_USERDATA_HISTORY table even if you have set the adata-default-storage option value to secure. (ICON-4930)

    Found In: 8.1.507.06 Fixed In: 8.1.512.08

    Interaction Concentrator, configured with the cfg role, considers an object deleted if you change the permission on that object so that ICON can no longer access it. In this scenario, if you restore the permissions, ICON does not recogize or restore the object. (ICON-5120)

    Found In: 8.1.506.07 Fixed In: 8.1.510.07

    In environments with a partitioned Oracle IDB, the database creation scripts add unnecessary non-partioned indexes to the partitioned tables. The partitioned database does not require global indexes, so you can safely drop all the non-partitioned indexes. (ICON-4980)


    When ICON is configured to partially hide attached data using the hide-first or hide-last configuration options, Interaction Server events may still show the entire attached data value. Only the skip, hide, and copy values affect display of user data in Interaction Server events. (ICON-4919)

    Found In: 8.1.506.07 Fixed In: 

    The purgePartitions811 purge stored procedure calculates the number of days to keep based on which day is the current day in the database local time, rather than UTC time. As a result, you may see up to one extra day preserved or removed, depending on your time zone. (ICON-4914)

    Found In: 8.1.506.07 Fixed In: 8.1.507.06

    When ICON has its role set to cfg and Interaction Server is present on the Connections tab, the following error message appears during startup:

    Std 20010 Configuration error. Class [CKLinkProc] : Unsupported switch type 'InteractionServer-1'

    You may safely disregard this message. (ICON-4890)

    Found In: 8.1.506.07 Fixed In: 8.1.511.01

    The description of the purgePartitions811 stored procedure incorrectly explains which days/partitions are purged. The User's Guide states that the number of days you enter when you run the stored procedure are retained, along with the current UTC day. In fact, the purge procedure keeps N+1 days/partitions. It keeps N partitions—including the one for the current day—and one future or tomorrow partition. The tomorrow partition provides a safeguard in case the purge procedure execution should overlap from one UTC day to the next. Without it, if the purge execution continued past the day boundary, data would start being written into a day that was being purged, with possible loss of data.

    Example

    There are 14 partitions, each of which contains the data for a day (days are based on UTC time). The number_of_days parameter is set to 4. Today's partition is Number 8. When you run the purge procedure, it keeps four partitions, including today: Partitions 5-8. It also keeps Partition 9. Partitions 1-4 and 10-14 are truncated/purged.

    If the tomorrow partition, Partition 9, was not also kept, and the purge process started on Day 8 and went past the day boundary to Day 9, then it would still be running while data started being written to Partition 9. If Partition 9 were then truncated, you might lose data. (ICON-4885)

    Found In: Document version 8.1.5 Fixed In:  8.1.507.06

    There is an inconsistency in the ways the keys in KV pairs are displayed in T-Events and SQL statements when the default-filter-type option is set to skip. In such configurations, ICON displays the keys in SQL statements whereas in T-Events ICON does not display either keys or values. (ICON-4865)

    Found In: 8.1.505.05 Fixed In:  8.1.506.15

    On rare occasions, ICON writing into an Oracle IDB might generate duplicated IDs for custom data records for unreliable calls (those in which ICON did not monitor the entire lifespan of a call). As a result, you might get one of the following error messages: unique constraint (PK_G_CALL_USERDATC) violated or unique constraint (PK_G_CALL_UDATC2) violated. Please contact Genesys Customer Care if you encounter one of these errors. (ICON-5144)

    Found In: 8.1.504.04 Fixed In: 8.1.511.01

    A change to the functioning of the lookup-queue-on-ringing Switch-level configuration option means that you must restart ICON before a change to the option value takes effect. (ICON-4616)

    When an agent makes a network attended transfer while participating in a conference on a premise T-Server, all agents participating in the conference might appear in reports as if they made a transfer. (ICON-4588)


    Interaction Concentrator supports Unicode encoding on Oracle, Microsoft SQL, and PostgreSQL RDBMSs only. Unicode encoding is not supported on DB2 RDBMSs. (ICON-4548)

    Found In: 8.1.x Fixed In: 8.1.510.03, 8.1.510.05

    ICON does not set the GSYS_EXT_INT1 field in the GC_ANNEX table to 1 during configuration resynchronization. As a result, Genesys Info Mart gathering data from two ICONs in HA mode, both of which have the cfg role might not see Annex tab data during a period when neither ICON instance monitored Annex tab information. This is likely to happen during ICON migration when existing ICONs start monitoring Annex tab data. To avoid this issue you need to enable Annex tab monitoring for the HA ICON pair in the following way.

    1. Stop both ICONs.

    2. Enable Annex tab monitoring by setting the ICON cfg-annex option to 1. You may upgrade IDB to version 8.1.4 at this time as well, if needed.

    3. Stop the Genesys Info Mart extraction job until both ICONs have completed configuration resynchronization.

    4. Restart both ICONs.

    5. Invoke configuration resynchronization for both ICONs by setting the start-cfg-sync option to 0 and then to 1. It is important to have as small a resynchronization time gap between the two paired ICONs

    6. After configuration synchronization is complete, you can start the Genesys Info Mart extraction job. To verify whether synchronization is completed, check the ICON log for the Standard log message 09-25028: "Configuration synchronization completed in IDB".

    If you omitted this procedure and the Genesys Info Mart database is missing data taken from the ICON GC_ANNEX table, contact Genesys Customer Care for assistance. (ICON-4525)

    Note that an asterisk (*) in a key name in the [log-filter-data] section of the ICON Application object functions as a wildcard meaning "any". For more information on the [log-filter-data] section, refer to the "Hide Selected Data in Logs" chapter of the Genesys Security Deployment Guide. (ICON-4474)


    When ICON collects data from Interaction Server, ICON might print the following error message in the log if ICON reconnects to the Interaction Server after an interaction for which it had been storing data has stopped.

    Fatal error occurred after EventProcessingStopped.

    You can safely ignore this error message. (ICON-4419)

    In scenarios in which a call is directed to a Trunk Group device and is then transferred by a two-step transfer to an Agent DN, ICON does not record the PARENTPARTYID and PARENTLINKTYPE values of the consultation call for the party record that is associated with the Trunk Group device into the G_PARTY and G_PARTY_HISTORY tables. (ICON-4358)


    After ICON restores a connection to T-Server, it also restores any confirmed login session. However, the Lseq value for that login session might be restored incorrectly and might remain incorrect until after the first change in the agent state. (ICON-4318)

    An error message, "Error EventLinkConnected:ApplicationName is absent" is incorrectly logged by Interaction Concentrator during a switchover from a primary to a backup SIP Server. (ER# 319983841)


    On DB2 IDBs, the drop_<previous_schema_version>_<db_type>.sql script provided with Interaction Concentrator drops only stored procedures. It does not drop functions. If you need to drop functions, you must drop them manually. (ER# 318768543)


    Interaction Concentrator verifies the availability of the persistent queue (PQ) file only during initialization. If the PQ file becomes corrupted or unavailable for writing after successful verification, Interaction Concentrator might stop functioning and need to be restarted. To minimize potential PQ file issues, Interaction Concentrator now requires that the PQ file be configured on a local drive. (ER# 313731283)


    If Interaction Concentrator is configured with the cfg role and the configuration environment is very large (more than 5 minutes are required to complete resynchronization), Interaction Concentrator cannot complete the resynchronization. As a workaround, increase the dss-no-data-tout value to 1800 seconds. After resynchronization is complete, return the dss-no-data-tout value to 120 seconds. (ER# 300542501)

    When gls-enforce-reason-code=3, the following sequence of changes of hardware (HW) reason codes (RCs) is not reflected correctly in the G_AGENT_STATE_RC table:

    1. RC = X (without ACD Queue)
    2. RC = Y (for ACD Queue)
    3. RC = X (without ACD Queue)

    In this scenario, ICON does not write the last record (the second instance of RC = X) in the G_AGENT_STATE_RC table.

    Workaround: Do not repeat a HW RC value for the same device without first changing the value. For example, enforce scenarios such as the following:

    1. RC = X (without ACD Queue)
    2. RC = Y (for ACD Queue)
    3. RC = X2 (without ACD Queue), where X2 is not the same as X
    4. RC = X (without ACD Queue)

    In this scenario, ICON writes all changes of RC (four records) in the G_AGENT_STATE_RC table.

    In multi-site scenarios in which a call is routed from Site1 to Site2 via a DN (an External Routing Point, for example), and in the corresponding EventRouteUsed message about Site1 the value for AttributeThirdPartyDN has the same name as a local DN on Site1, ICON cannot distinguish between the duplicate instances of the same DN name. As a result, ICON inserts an incorrect value in the ENDPOINTID field of the G_PARTY_HISTORY table. (ICON-308)

    In scenarios that involve single-step transfer, call redirect, or call routing to an unmonitored site, ICON reports the non-monitored external party as being in the alerting state. As a result, the time values that are stored in the G_PARTY_STAT.TT_ON_CONNECTED and G_CALL_STAT.TT_CONNECTED IDB fields may be incorrect for these scenarios. (ER# 285313971)


    The Interaction Concentrator application template contains the uniqueness configuration option in the [dbw-error-reaction] section. The default settings for this option are error=unique; reaction=ignore. These values are correct for Oracle RDBMSs, but not for Microsoft SQL Server or DB2 databases. If you are using a Microsoft SQL Server or DB2 database, consult the documentation for your RDBMS to determine the correct error value. Refer to the Interaction Concentrator 8.1 Deployment Guide for guidance configuring the option.

    Note: The option name is given as <error-name> in the Deployment Guide.

    For example, if you find that the error returned by your Microsoft SQL Server database is similar to the following:

    GCTI-09-25005 Database queue [CFG]: database error received: status 5, description: [Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Violation of PRIMARY KEY constraint 'PK_GC_ENDPOINT'. Cannot insert duplicate key in object 'dbo.GC_ENDPOINT'.

    then in order to ignore this error message, configure the option as follows: error=duplicate; reaction=ignore. In this case the word duplicate is used as the key word to identify this error. (ER# 284423615)

    In DB2 deployments with large database schemas, the schemas require sufficient space in the application heap; otherwise, the GSYSPurge80 stored procedure may not execute properly and may generate an error similar to the following:

    "Other Purge Instance in Progress"
    
    Should this occur, Genesys recommends that you increase the size of the application heap in your DB2 database schema to 1000 using the applheapsz database configuration parameter.

    Example: db2 update db cfg using applheapsz 1000

    Once the application heap has been increased, the GSYSPurge80 stored procedure should execute correctly. (ICON-4002; ER# 279236706)


    During migration from ICON release 8.0 to 8.1, the Purge2_<dbms>.sql script may generate the following error:

    The operation failed because an index or statistics with name 'IDX_GSYS_P_MARK_TN' already exists on table 'GSYS_P_MARK'
    
    This error can be safely ignored. (ICON-4000; ER# 279207333)


    During migration from ICON release 7.6.000.21 or earlier to 8.1, executing the 3_UpgradeSchema_<dbms>.sql and 5_UpgradeSchema_<dbms>.sql scripts may generate errors while trying to create existing objects or while trying to insert existing records into the GSYS_MERGE_LOCK table. These errors can be safely ignored. (ICON-3999; ER# 278981571)


    If the connection between ICON and Interaction Server is lost and is then restored during the following scenario, ICON does not create a new party:

    1. ICON loses the connection with Interaction Server while a strategy is trying to route the interaction.
    2. During the time when ICON has no connection with Interaction Server, either the interaction is routed to a destination or Interaction Server takes the interaction back and then places it back into the Queue, from which the same strategy attempts re-routing the interaction.

    When the connection is restored, ICON has no data that indicates that the interaction ever left the strategy. Therefore, ICON does not create a new party and no additional party is added to the G_PARTY table. ICON associates all Virtual Queues with the party that it created for the original strategy in the G_ROUTE_RES_VQ_HIST table. (ICON-3998; ER# 277876339)


    If the connection between ICON and the primary Configuration Server is lost during startup, and then the connection to a backup Configuration Server is established while ICON is performing the initial load of configuration data, ICON becomes unresponsive and must be restarted. (ER# 281507991)


    The mechanism that prevents more than one instance of the GSYSPurge80 procedure from running at once on Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle RDBMSs is not available for DB2. For DB2 databases, you must take care that the purge process is started only if no purge is already running. Starting two purge processes simultaneously on an IDB that is running a DB2 RDBMS results in numerous errors, which are reflected in the purge log (G_LOG_MESSAGES table).

    If you are using a Microsoft SQL Server RDBMS to host IDB, be aware that a deadlock on the database server might cause the merge stored procedure to fail, with an error that you cannot observe in the ICON logs.

    When you change a value for any Interaction Concentrator option located on the Switch configuration object Annex tab, you must restart ICON for the new value to take effect.

    Internationalization

    Information in this section is included for international customers.


    For Unicode Configuration Server, Interaction Concentrator 8.1.511.01 and higher checks for compatibility of database encoding and might print the following warning message: <Persistent_queue-manager>, Queue <queue_name>: ICON does not support Unicode. If you do not need Unicode symbols in your reporting data, you can safely ignore this message.


    The Interaction Concentrator Deployment Guide has been updated to indicate configuration requirements for international language encoding on Oracle and PostgreSQL databases, as also provided in the following entry in this section. For details, see Internationalization Settings. (ICON-4936)


    If you are using a Unicode PostgreSQL IDB, be sure to have client encoding set to UTF-8 as well. If you encounter an error message indicating: invalid byte sequence for encoding, you can enforce client encoding to UTF-8 by setting the PGCLIENTENCODING environment variable to UTF8 for the DB Server environment.

    Genesys Configuration Server 8.1.2 and earlier fully supports only database schemas with a single national language and single encoding used in the environment (in addition to English US/ASCII). If you require UTF-8 support, you must use Configuration Layer components of release 8.1.3 or higher.

    In addition, in environments with PostgreSQL RBDMS, the IDB processing configuration details (having the role option set to cfg) should be created to use encoding identical to that used by Configuration Server. For example, you may set PostgreSQL database encoding to WIN1252 to use extended ASCII from European languages or use SQL_ASCII.

    If you require ICON to process user data using any symbols other than ASCII, you must create your PostgreSQL IDB with encoding that supports these symbols. If this encoding is different from the Configuration Server encoding, you must have a separate IDB for configuration details. (ICON-4389)
