Invites Subresource


(information)

Info

Flex Conversations requires Flex UI 2.0.x. If you are on Flex UI 1.x.x, refer to the Messaging in Flex pages.

The Interaction Channel Invite subresource allows you to add an agent as a new participant to an existing interaction channel.


_10
/Interactions/<interaction_sid>/Channels/<channel_sid>/Invites

Use this endpoint to:

  • add an agent to an ongoing interaction,
  • to find an agent that should be added by evaluating a TaskRouter workflow , or
  • to send an interaction to a queue .

The invite creates a new task for the existing interaction which will result in reservations offered to the agent(s). Note the example JSON response on this page is not representative of the actual API response. See example response on "Park an Interaction".

(warning)

Warning

Remember to handle certain terminal TaskRouter events according to your application's needs, as conversations may stay orphaned with an open state.

See Conversations Best Practices for details.
