Updates to the userData object

For each engagement that Altocloud triggers, Altocloud adds the following properties to the widget's userData object. The userData object allows Altocloud to render journey-specific user interfaces on an agent's desktop.

_actActionMapId The Altocloud Action Map ID for the engagement
_actCustomerId The Altocloud ID value for the visitor to the site
_actCustomerIdType The Altocloud ID type of Customer ID
