we are using a IPC to comunicate CAD with a third party application. We are using IPC Set Variable Action, but it seem that it doesn't work correctly. Indeed of we have tried IPC Make Call Action and it works fine. I'll try to explain myself as clear as I could:

  • We have a ECC Variable named user.Idioma.
  • This ECC variable is included into a layout and it showed in it as Idioma with the correct value.
  • From the external third party app we send to the CAD app the following code:
    • <?xml version="1.0"?><IPCActions><IPCSetVariableAction><ActionName>IPC Set Variable Action</ActionName><Variable>user.Idioma</Variable><DataValue>english</DataValue></IPCSetVariableAction></IPCActions>

Although we send the xml code, the variable is not modified.

Could anybody help us with this?

Thank you very much for the tip. It works using the following format:

...Field Name|Display Name ...

We are experiencing another issue, which is related with the refresh of Layout fields in CAD.

When the variable is changed using the IPC Set Variable, it's value is not refreshed in CAD. Have you solved this issue?

Thank you and regards

you are experiencing the correct functionality. You will only view variables refreshed when you transfer the call to a new destination (for example an other agent).

Varibles values never be refreshed in your own desktop.
