    • The agent may (if enabled) pause and resume the recording manually via the standard integration with Genesys Workspace when sensitive data needs to be entered.
  6. Customer or Agent disconnects the call.
  7. Genesys Interaction Recording stops and stores the recording.
    • The recording is encrypted, and is stored encrypted at rest. (*Compliance step)
  8. Supervisor searches for, retrieves, and listens to a recording made by one of their agents.
    • Access to the recording is controlled. (*Compliance step)
    • User access and activity is available for audit. (*Compliance step)
  9. Legal and Compliance officer checks the system for compliance and retrieves recordings for legal purposes.

Business and Distribution Logic

Business Logic


Metadata are tags that are added to the recording and allow precisely targeted interaction search and selection for evaluation and analysis. What data is available depends on the distribution logic implemented in your environment.

Archiving and Purging Criteria

Recordings can be archived and/or purged from the system after a specified time. After recordings have been purged, they are no longer available for supervisors or compliance officers from the Genesys user interface. The corresponding policies are configured during setup. This use case provides one set of rules that are valid for all recorded calls. GIR does not manage archived files. It is the customer's responsibility to set up the lifecycle policy of these archives and purge them after the lifecycle period.

Access Control

Access control to recordings is managed by user roles and associated permissions as well as by the organizational hierarchy defined for the individual agents. This use case includes a default set of roles that can be provided upon request.

Encrypted Recordings

When configuring encryption, you are responsible for backup of the private key. If the private key becomes lost or corrupt, any recording encrypted using that key become unusable.

If screen recording is also used in the deployment, a screen recording certificate must also be provisioned. ==== Encrypted Communications ==== Communications between GIR components occur on a secure channel.

When configuring encrypted communications, TLS, you should follow your own company's security policies for creating and signing certificates.

Health and Alarming

Log level alarming is present for the critical components within GIR. MCP utilizes the SNMP MA for trap capture and upstream messaging.

Distribution Logic


User Interface & Reporting

Agent UI

The agent will have the optional capability to pause/resume a recording when confidential information is passed via the call via his agent desktop.
