Global Interaction Identifier

Global interaction identifier (GIID) is a UUID-formatted number assigned to every interaction processed within Bright Pattern Contact Center. It can be used to track interaction history through all stages of processing within the system, including possible consultations, transfers, conferences, service changes, and media upgrades. At run-time, GIID can be exported to third-party applications via scenarios and/or desktop integration APIs. Historically, GIID appears in all records related to interaction processing, including call detail records, outbound campaign results, voice recording file names, and activity history of pre-integrated CRM applications. GIID is available as a search condition (i.e., data element) in the interaction records search.
