Adding the Interaction Manager component

Adding the Interaction Manager component

The Toolbox contains the Interaction Manager and Activity components. You add the component to each project's global container. The process assumes a global container exists in the project.

When the first Interaction Manager component is added to a project, Pega Robot Studio™ automatically copies the base interaction.xml file into the solution folder, where it may be modified to fit the solution.

Follow these steps to add and configure the Interaction Manager component.

  1. In the Solution Explorer, double-click a project's global container to open it in the designer window.
  2. In the IDE, click the Toolbox window.
  3. In the Toolbox, click the Interaction Management category to expand it.
  4. Click the Interaction Manager component and drag it to the Global Container designer window. The Properties window refreshes to display the Interaction Manager component. By default, a path pointing to the base XML file is displayed.
