API Commands

Once you've registered your plugin on the bus, you can call commands on other registered plugins. Here's how to use the global bus object to register a new plugin on the bus.

Important
The global bus object is a debugging tool. When implementing Widgets on your own site, do not use the global bus object to register your custom plugins. Instead, see Genesys Widgets Extensions for more information about extending Genesys Widgets.
var oMyPlugin = window._genesys.widgets.bus.registerPlugin('MyPlugin');

oMyPlugin.command('Engage.invite');

invite

API Events

Once you've registered your plugin on the bus, you can subscribe to and listen for published events. Here's how to use the global bus object to register a new plugin on the bus.

Important
The global bus object is a debugging tool. When implementing widgets on your own site, do not use the global bus object to register your custom plugins. Instead, see Genesys Widgets Extensions for more information about extending Genesys Widgets.
 var oMyPlugin = window._genesys.widgets.bus.registerPlugin('MyPlugin');
 
 oMyPlugin.subscribe('Engage.ready', function(e){});

Interaction Lifecycle

Every offer interaction has a sequence of events we describe as the Interaction Lifecycle. These events track progress and user choices from the beginning of an interaction (opening Offers), to the end (closing Offers), and every step in between.

The following events comprise the Interaction Lifecycle:

ready
opened
CTA
hover
dismissed
closed

Lifecycle scenarios

An Interaction Lifecycle can vary based on each user's intent and experience with the Offer widget. Here are several sequences of events in the lifecycle that correspond to different scenarios.

The user opened the Offer widget but changed their mind and closed it without seeing the offer details:

ready -> opened -> dismissed -> closed

The user opened the Offer widget, hovered over the offer details, and then closed it:

ready -> opened -> hover -> dismissed -> closed

The user opened the Offer widget and clicked on the button, which triggers CTA:

ready -> opened -> CTA -> closed
Tip
For a list of all Offer events, see API Events.

Metadata

Each event in the Interaction Lifecycle includes the following block of metadata. By default, all values are set to false. As the user progresses through the lifecycle of an Offer Engage interaction, these values are updated.

The metadata block contains Boolean state flags, timestamps, and elapsed times. These values can be used to track and identify trends or issues with interactions. During runtime, the metadata can help you offer a smart and dynamic experience to your users.
