Get ConversationID when starting a chat

Hello team, SOS
I am working on an Omnichannel for Customer Service (D365) implementation. I have a bot developed in PVA that works as a user in D365.

I need from the PVA bot to obtain the conversationid and then with power virtual automate obtain the name of the contact.

I am trying to use the va_conversationId and bot msdyn_liveworkitemid context variables but they work randomly. If I use them in the greeting topic the variable is empty. On the other hand, if I use it after asking some questions, the variable is complete.

 

Context variables take time to initialize? How can I get the conversation id when starting the chat?

 

I need it for multiple channels (facebook, live chat, whatsapp).

 

Thank you!

hI @fernarod ,

 

Unfortunately, you can just get the conversation Id using the Custom Canvas (custom website), using JavaScript you can get all information behind the Html code.

You can suggest your idea here: https://aka.ms/pva/community/ideas

Thanks @renatoromao , from what I see the variable msdyn_liveworkitemid is populated with the conversation id after a few seconds, it is not immediate. For that reason I cannot get the id when starting the conversation.

When you talk with the chatbot, the conversation transcript will be stored in a ConversationTranscript entity in 6 hours.
