Configuring ISS Integration Objects

Integration object configuration is used to create uniform field names for different physical business components (such as Quote Item, Order Item, and so on). When defining variable maps then, you can specify one source path for all modes.

NOTE:  To avoid errors when trying to retrieve data from business components, it is recommended that you always define the component field names in integration objects, and use the uniform name in the variable source path for necessary modes only.

At run time, the user property of the business component that raised the signal determines which integration object to use. For each business component, there are various user properties (such as the property called Instance Uniform Name EAI Object:Catalog).

To configure ISS integration objects

  1. For the business component that raises the signal, set the value of the user property Instance Uniform Name EAI Object:[BusObj] to the integration object name, for example:

    Instance Uniform Name EAI Object:Catalog

    In this example, Catalog refers to the business object that the business component is in at run time.

  2. From the integration object definition, use the value in Integration Object Component Name as the Instance Type.

    For example, use Header for the Quote business component in the Catalog business object.

    NOTE:  For each business object, each business component within it must have a unique Instance type—for example, no two business components within the Quote business object can be referred to as Header.
