Config / Automation / Overview


To automate processes, you need to set them up as described in the chapters above. For inbound files, the starting point is receiving the files. You can set up the workflow so that all subsequent steps are performed automatically. We recommend that you use Business Transactions to set up the entire workflow. This way, the only thing you need to do to automate your inbound files is to add a RECEIVE job, as described next.

For outgoing files, you will typically start with a data collection job of a EDI Business Transaction Type and all other actions will be performed automatically.

Of course there is also the option to run a single mapping from the job queue.

There are situations where you may not want everything to run automatically. If this is the case, there is a setup option to turn off the automatic processing and add job queue entry that only process the things you want. This gives you a lot of flexibility, but you have to set up each job queue entry individually.

If even that is not enough control, you can also do everything (and more) that we can automate from the job queue by calling the ANVEDI Integration Codeunit from code. This can also be helpful if you want to perform an action not automatically, but by pressing a button.

Anveo EDI Connect also offers the possibility to automatically retry processing that has run into errors. To use this functionality from the mapping setup or the communication channels, a MAINTENANCE job must be set up.
