    Not planned until we get more context

    Thank you for your request. The development team have now added it to our internal planning-system for evaluation.

    Could you give an example of a real use-case and that UF config it would involve? The issue we see is that almost all UFs have a UI-API part and anything called from the Stored Procedure would not be able to be dependent of the UI (as the SP are also called when you use external DI-API programs like DTW)

  • Jose Gomensoro

    Examples:

    - We use B1P&D to automatically email Advance Shipment Notifications (PDF) when a Deliver Note is added. But it is very common to trigger the creation of Delivery Notes via barcode scanners, therefore there is no UI input, only DI. So we would want that when a Delivery note is added, a Report Action is triggered to e-mail a Crystal Report. 

    - Similarly, we may want the file exporter to create a file containing delivery/packaging information when a delivery is added (via barcode scanner for example), so that a courier client (such as UPS Worldship) will pick that file up and create the shipping labels. This is very time sensitive because the person creating the delivery doesn't want to wait for a schedule; the file has to be created immediately so that the label is created on the spot

    For the above examples (and anything where there is no UI event, such as with any integration to other applications) we usually would require another tool such as an ETL application. It would be great if we could just use Boyum.

    Hi Rasmus,

    I have a case where i miss this functionality :

    We have purchase orders automatically created in B1, where we need to recompute prices once document is first created in B1.

    So either 

    - the user need to open every purchase order in order to trigger a data load event then a line loop recompute prices.

    - we make a B1UP batch but prices are not up to date immediately computed

    - third option is making B1if scenario but we need to develop outside B1UP

     

    So being able to trigger a dynamic code macro from the TN would be time saver.

    Hi 

    is any update on this request? 

    my scenario is that AR Invoices are created via DI-API, at the moment we are using Scheduler but is not practical 

    this functionality would  be great

     

    R

    @Juan: This has not made a planning stage yet because of low amounts of votes compared to how big an undertaking it would be to make this (the underlying structure of UF/B1P&D is optimized for scheduled behavior and not event-based behavior 😢)

    But we hear you (and others requesting similar), so please keep voting

  • Norman Macsween

    Would also love this functionality - shame there aren't a few more votes!

    Hi Rasmus,

    As this request is unfortunately not planned for development, could you suggest any alternative way to trigger some B1IP code from api events, without any users interactions.

    We can make do with scheduled UF macro, but its is not api event triggering.

  • Dave Gutman

    Could this be done via .NET code in a UF?  I'm thinking a .NET snippet that would make no-impact change (i.e. make a data change to an unused UDF) to a data record which when saved would trigger SAP to call Transaction Notification.
