Series: Architect tutorial for beginning users

Lesson 8: Validate and publish the Genesys Cloud Animal Care call flow

In the previous lessons, we built most of Genesys Cloud Animal Care’s initial call flow configuration. The final steps in the Beginner series involve checking the call flow for errors, resolving any errors, and then publishing it for availability. 

Note: Publishing a new call flow does not activate it. An admin must first assign the flow to specific numbers before the flow is active. For more information, see the Suggested content.


  • Review call flow validation errors.
  • Add TTS to prompts resources and menu choices.
  • Publish the call flow.

Estimated time to complete: 15 minutes


Additional resources

To use the example shown here:

  1. Click this link to download the file: Architect Tutorial Beginning Users.
  2. Extract the BeginnerTutorial flow and import it into your new flow.

Note: If you need help importing the flow, follow the instructions in the Import the flow.txt file included in the .zip file.

  1. Make any necessary modifications.


In this section, you check the call flow for validation errors and resolve them according to type.

The flow likely contains some prompt validation errors. These errors occur because when we added French as a supported language in Lesson 7, we did not set up French audio or TTS equivalents for the English prompts that we created in Lesson 1. 

  1. On the Genesys Cloud Animal Care’s Inbound Call Flow page, click Validate. The validation process returns some errors highlighted in red, and some highlighted in yellow.

Note: Red validation errors prevent the call flow from working, and you must resolve them before Architect implements it for call processing. Yellow validation errors include suggestions or best practice recommendations, but do not prevent the call flow from working.

  1. Hover over the red validation error number to view a brief explanation of the error. In this case, Architect informs you of several user prompt errors in various audio sequences.

  1. In the call flow’s Resources area, click Prompts. Architect returns a list of system and user prompts used in this call flow. We can resolve the user prompt errors here.
  2. In the Prompts design area, in the Name column click GCACAppointmentMenu. The Edit Prompt dialog box opens. Notice that, in the Resources area, the English prompt contains audio, but the French prompt does not contain audio or TTS.
  3. The French version of Genesys Cloud’s Appointment Menu is shown below. You can add it as TTS, or you can record it in audio. For this step, copy the text and paste it as TTS. 
Pour le Dr Jones , appuyez sur 1 ou dire docteur Jones . Pour le Dr Smith , appuyez sur 2 ou dire le docteur Smith . Pour le salon de toilettage , appuyez sur 3 ou dire salon de toilettage.
  1. Click OK, and then click Validate again. Only 10 red validation errors remain. 

  1. Hover over a yellow validation error number to view a brief explanation of the error. In this case, Architect informs you that not all languages have speech recognition terms.
  2. Click the first error highlighted in yellow. Architect opens the Transfer to User action in the reusable Appointments menu for Dr. Baskerville. We can resolve this error here.
  3. In the Transfer to User design area, next to Speech Recognition click show all languages. The Speech Recognition area expands to include a box for French (Canada).
  4. In the French (Canada) box, type Dr. Baskerville and press enter or return.
  5. Click Validate again. Only nine yellow validation errors remain.


Follow the tasks above to resolve the remaining red and yellow validation errors.

Follow the task above to resolve the remaining validation errors for the missing language prompts. The French versions are below. You can record them in French, or you can copy them and paste them as TTS.
