A schema is a collection of custom attributes that defines your workitem. For example, to process a home loan application, you can define attributes to capture the customer account number, the type of loan required, the loan value, or any previous rejections of a loan request. The custom attributes help you capture the necessary data for further processing of the workitem.

Custom attributes help with the following:

  • Visualize the data. Helps define the options that are available to an agent and make it visually comprehensible.
  • Control business logic. Helps define in Architect the attributes that are necessary for a work to pass through a pre-defined flow.
  • Report the data. The schema attributes allow you to filter, sort, view data.

Define the custom attributes specific to your organization’s business needs. You can create up to 100 schemas per organization.
