if you have a ContactID and you need to get the user name that handled the contact. It is a two step process.

First use describeContact with the ContatID if the contact is handled by an agent, the AgentInfo will have an object in the response with the "Id" which is the agent id but you still do not have the actual user name.

then using the agent id, call DescribeUser then you will get the name of the user and the rest of the user info

To avoid hitting the API limit, best practice is to cache the DescribeUser info into a table like DynamoDB. So you can query DynamoDB to get the username without using the Connect API DescribeUser everytime if this is used a lot.

  • This works. Do you know if there are any other APIs that can extract details like: Connect to agent timestamp ACW (start, end, duration) Interaction duration

  • DescribeContact will get you "ConnectedToAgentTimestamp" but not ACW start/stop, which need the actual CTR to get, as well as interaction duration



We can make use of AgentInfo API call. [+]

Thank you!
