Bright Pattern Search Object

The Bright Pattern Search Object block finds an existing object in the database and retrieve activity data.


Bright Pattern Search Object scenario block


How to Use This Block

This block may be used to retrieve activity data. To do this, create a workflow using the this block with an Activity history object, Global Interaction ID criterion. If the workflow is configured to start immediately after an interaction, make sure to add reasonable delay (e.g., the Wait block) as it takes a few seconds to write activity history. Next, use the Get Next Record block to browse through recordset returned by this block.

After configuring the workflow, configure an [form] with custom activity history fields. When you run an interaction using this activity form and trigger the workflow, make sure the agent creates a case and adds few notes during the interaction.

Failed

The Failed conditional exit is executed if the search operation failed, due to invalid parameters, timeout, or network connectivity to external CRM (e.g. Salesforce).
