How to create a Case Workflow Button

  1. Head over to Workflows > Workflow Buttons.
  2. Open the Case Workflow Buttons tab:
  1. To create a new button that will appear in the case pages, click the + Create Case Workflow button:
  1. This will bring up a page with choices in menu items to configure your workflow button. Let's look at them in detail.

General Button Settings



In this section, you must create a label name for your button that will adequately describe its function to your agents. Keep it short.

Icon / Color

You may also select an icon and color for this button.

Button Description Text

In the description text, you may add a lengthy description for your agents. When your agents hover over the button on a case page, this description will appear.

External ID

The external ID is a custom ID that can be used by your organization developers to detect when the button is pressed using webhooks. It is optional.

Open / Close Case


In this section, you can choose to add your first action to your button.

Open / Close Case

By default, nothing will occur, however, you can elect to create a button the will either close the case or open a new one (by making a copy of the current one).



Re-assign Case

This section will enable your button to either re-assign the case to a new agent or a new team.

When re-assigning the button, you can either pre-set a specific agent/team or let the user choose the agent/team at the time the button is pressed.




When a case is created, it will be related to an entity. You can use the button to whitelist that entity for the rule that created this case or for all rules (global).

This is very useful for immediately removing false positives created by known non-fraudulent entities.

In selecting either Global or Just for this rule, you will also have the option to select the duration the entity will be whitelisted. For example, you could whitelist an entity that is a beta user of your platform for a 15 day trial. You could also whitelist a test account or a gold/VIP user that was mistakenly caught by a rule.

Add / Remove Tags

If you are not familiar with tags, please checkout the Tags section.


Add Tags

You can add existing or new tags to your case using the button.

Remove Tags

You can remove tags from the case using the button.



Apply Disposition

You can automatically apply a disposition (resolution description) to your case using the button. For example, you could automatically disposition the case to a "False Positive".


You can also add custom notes to a case using the button such as "Closed due to Court Order 45.168".


This sub-disposition can further describe the disposition into reasons and options.

Please note underscores are not supported for sub-disposition names.

In this example, we use the sub-disposition to further describe the "Fraud Type" that created this alert. Our button workflow could then be used to categorize the type automatically with the options "scam, money laundering, or fake account #":

  1. Once you are done programming the workflow of the button, click Create Workflow:
