Create Issue Requisition using Mincom Connector

Create Issue Requisition using Mincom Connector

Create Issue Requisition using Mincom Connector

(OP)
I have the need to create an application that will create issue requisitions based on estimated material needs. I have looked at the documentation and it looks like there are four parts: 1. ValidateItem Method 2. Create Method 3. CreateItem Method and 4. Finalise Method.

I was wondering if anyone has some sample code where they are currently doing this. I would appreciate any help that can be provided. We are currently on Ellipse 5.2.3.7 wk3.

Thanks.

 

RE: Create Issue Requisition using Mincom Connector

Wow that is a lot of coding since you will need to check for errors at several different places. We ended up using onbase system for something like you are trying to do.

RE: Create Issue Requisition using Mincom Connector

I have just tried a similar process - creating issue req items - using the Mincom Ellipse Web Services. Both the web services and the connector calls end up calling the MSK140 program on the back-end, so I'm guessing the steps will be the same: 1.ValidateItem Method, 2.Create Method, 3.CreateItem Method, and 4.Finalise Method.

I found the "trick" is the handling of the msg140Data field. Grab it from the result of step 1, and pass it into step 2; grab it from the result of step 2, and pass it into step 3; etc.

Thanks PhantomPhil, that is my train of thought also. I have been working on other things but I am starting to get on this again.

I am trying to understand in the ValidateItem Method when it gets to the item validation it is talking about ReqItems and it says this is Mandatory. Must contain an array with a maximum of two (2) Requisition Items and their attributes.
Do we pass an array through the connector? This is the biggest place that I am lost right now.

I would appreciate any help that anyone could give on this.

RE: Create Issue Requisition using Mincom Connector

It means you do not have access to the Class/Method Requisition/ValidateItem.  You will need to have your access changed... Drew

I ended up using the old screen scraping method instead of the BOC. I was only needing to req one or two items per work order so this worked well for me. According to a Work Order that we submitted with Mincom, they did not recommend using the BOC to create requisitions but to use the screen scraping method instead.
