Starts or continues a conversation with a user, using an existing session token.
Converse action requires the SystemName of your configured conversation system, and a SessionID (session token) for your conversation. You create the session token by using the ManageResources action.
When you want to start a conversation, you can send
Converse with only the SystemName and SessionID parameters. In this case, Answer Server runs the conversation task that has the initial state trigger (for example, a default greeting). If you do not have a configured task with the initial state trigger, Answer Server runs the conversation task that has the empty state trigger.
For more information about task triggers, refer to the Answer Server Administration Guide.
After the start of the conversation, you provide user text in the Text parameter. Answer Server processes the user text according to your task configuration, running the appropriate conversation tasks. The action response includes the result of the current task action, which might be a text reply, a request for information, or an acknowledgment, depending on your task configuration.
You continue the conversation by sending further
Converse actions with the same SessionID.
This action starts a conversation with session ID 860028728520387723 (previously created by using ManageResources) on the Answer Server accessible by IP
