IssueCustomer wants clarification on fact "transaction speed" as it is not described in the documentation.
ResolutionTransactionSpeed is not a numeric value or does not correspond to a specific time range.  TransactionSpeed value is an “Enum”, meaning that the values are constants that are only compared when used in a Policy Management rule.
Transaction Speed has the 4 values and they are specified in documentation for AAOP, Backoffice Guide Apendix A "List of Facts" as follows:
Transaction Speed
Determines how fast a transaction takes place. The possible values are:
  • FEW_HOURS. Execution of the action takes place within a few hours.
  • OVER_NIGHT. Execution of the action takes place overnight.
  • REAL_TIME. Execution of the action takes place in real time.
  • SEVERAL_DAYS. Execution of the action takes place within several days.
In the SOAP call while we provide transaction-related information we have a facility to provide executionSpeed (which is nothing but the transaction speed) so if we create a rule based on the fact present for transaction speed. It will just compare the values from SOAP call and the fact value and do the process according to that.
It indicates that this is a two-part process controlled by the Web Service Client application, and analyzed by AA in the policies:
  1. Web Service Client is responsible for sending this value in the SOAP CALL message.  If it is sent, it should be done in the field “Execution Speed” of the SOAP Request message.
  2. AA web service will receive the SOAP message from the client, and compare the value it receives in the “ExecutionSpeed” field against the fact “TransactionSpeed” values, a Policy rule will need to be defined for that to happen.
