To open a interceptor diagram, double-click on the interceptor’s icon in the SIS View interceptor list.

Below is an example of a freshly created interceptor diagram, plus details on the variable manipulators, condition (branching), and halt elements.

The control flow:

  • starts at the interceptor start element. From here you connect to other elements (Condition, Assign, Delete and so on) using the connect link from the palette. The connect link defines a next statement relation. You use it to specify the sequence of script statements in the interceptor.

  • ends at the interceptor end element.

Interceptor diagram

Below is an example of a freshly created interceptor. It includes a start node (top) and an end node (bottom).


Variable manipulator elements (assign, delete)

Through the assign element, a variable can be set to:

  • a specific value

  • the value of any other existing variable

  • a complex variable type (such as a CalledPartyNumber)

  • the result of a string-manipulation function (such as a substring or string-length).

Through the the delete element, an existing variable can be "unset".


Condition (branching) element

The Condition element represents a conditional selection within the composition’s flow chart logic. It has two outgoing connections:

  • <true> — followed if the condition evaluates to true (created using the if-true link from the palette)

  • <false> — followed if the condition evaluates to false (created using the if-false link from the palette).

Note A Condition statement must always have both, a <true> and <false> connection.
Tip To edit a Condition, double-click anywhere on the icon (which contains the condition’s textual representation at its centre). The Condition Editor opens in a new Editor tab.

Halt element

Halt elements allow you to stop the interceptor at any point during the script run. After encountering a halt, the SIS will evaluate no more interceptors instructions, and proceed to the interceptor end.

For SIP, a halt element can be configured with a failure response, indicating what shall be sent to the network.

Note Halt elements cannot have an outgoing connection to another diagram element, as they represent terminals of the invocation chain.
