22 Setting Up Orchestration Cross-References

This chapter contains the following topics:

22.1 Understanding Orchestration Cross-References

Orchestration cross-references (hereafter referred to as cross-references) are key/value data pairs used in the orchestration system. You add a cross-reference to associate a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne value, such as an Address Book number, with the equivalent value in a third-party application. For example, a third-party application that is integrated with JD Edwards EnterpriseOne might contain a field called Client Number that equates to the Customer Number field in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne. To share this data between the two systems, you create a cross-reference record that associates Client Number with Customer Number.

The Business Service Cross Reference program (P952000) is the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne program that enables you to manage cross-references.

In JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, you can define a cross-references in one of these categories:

22.1.1 Code and Key Cross-Reference Categorization

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne uses cross-reference object types to categorize cross-references. You use cross-reference object types to group together code and key cross-references of similar type. For example, you can add cross-reference object types called countrycode,unitofmeasure, and purchaseordernumber. You associate each cross-reference that you add to the appropriate cross-reference object type, which serves as a category for a particular group of cross-references.

Before you add cross-references to the system, you should analyze the fields and data that you are cross-referencing and define a categorization system that you can use to group cross-references into categories. This categorization helps you manage cross-references so that you can readily review, modify, and remove cross-references as needed. You can set up all the cross-reference object types in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne before you add cross-references to the system, or add additional cross-reference object types as needed.

22.2 Adding Cross-Reference Object Types

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne requires that you assign each cross-reference to a cross-reference object type. Cross reference object types enable you to group cross-references by category. Therefore, you must add cross-reference object types before you add cross-references.

Figure 22-1 Work with Business Service Cross Reference Object Type form

Description of Figure 22-1 follows
Description of "Figure 22-1 Work with Business Service Cross Reference Object Type form"

To add a cross-reference object type:

  1. To access the Work with Orchestration Cross Reference form, enter P952000 in the Fast Path field.

  2. From the Form menu, select Object Type.

  3. On the Work with Orchestration Cross Reference Object Type form, click the Add button.

  4. On the Add Orchestration Cross Reference Object Type form, in the Cross Reference Object Type field, enter a name that you want to use to categorize cross-references.

  5. In the Description field, enter a description that defines the purpose of the cross-reference object type, and then click the OK button.

22.3 Adding Orchestration Cross-References

You add orchestration cross-references to assign JD Edwards EnterpriseOne values to values in a third-party application.

Description of Figure 22-2 follows
Description of "Figure 22-2 Add Business Service Cross Reference form"

  1. To access the Work with Orchestration Cross Reference form, enter P952000 in the Fast Path field.

  2. Click the Add button.

    1. On the Add Orchestration Cross Reference form, add a cross-reference record by entering a value for each of these columns in the grid:

      • Orchestration Cross Reference Type

        Click the search button to select either CODE or KEY as the orchestration cross-reference type.

      • Object Type

        Click the search button to select a cross-reference object type that you want to use to categorize the cross-reference. If no suitable object type is available, you can add one in P952000.

      • Third Party App ID

        Enter an external system identifier, also known as a third-party application ID, to identify the system outside JD Edwards EnterpriseOne to which the cross-reference external value belongs, for example PeopleSoft CRM, E-Business Suite.

      • Third Party Value

        Enter a value from the external system that requires cross-referencing to an equivalent value in JD Edwards EnterpriseOne.

      • EOne Value

        Enter a JD Edwards EnterpriseOne value that is cross-referenced to the value in the external system.

    2. Press the Tab key to add additional cross-references as needed, and then click the OK button when complete.

      When you click the OK button, the system saves the cross-reference records to the appropriate tables. You can review the records in the Work with Orchestration Cross Reference form.

22.4 Reviewing or Modifying Orchestration Cross-References

In P952000, you can search for and review all of the current cross-reference records in the system. You can also view a particular subset of cross-reference records by searching on either key or code cross-references. You can further refine the search so that the system displays only records that belong to a particular cross-reference object type.

In addition to reviewing current cross-reference records, P952000 enables you to modify cross-references. You can modify any of the values that make up the cross-reference, including changing the reference type from code to key or vice versa.

To view or modify cross-references:

  1. To access the Work with Orchestration Cross Reference form, enter P952000 in the Fast Path field.

  2. Click the appropriate Orchestration Cross Reference Types option to view all cross-reference records, key cross-references, or code cross-references, and then click the Find button.

  3. To further refine the search, enter a cross-reference object type in the Cross Reference Object Type field, and then click the Find button.

  4. To modify a cross-reference, highlight the row that contains the cross-reference and then click the Select button.

  5. On the Modify Orchestration Cross Reference form, modify any of these fields as appropriate, and then click the OK button:

    • Reference Type

    • Object Type

    • Third Party App ID

    • Third Party Value

    • EnterpriseOne Value

22.5 Deleting Orchestration Cross-References

If a cross-reference becomes obsolete and is no longer necessary, you can delete it.

To delete a cross-reference:

  1. To access the Work with Orchestration Cross Reference form, enter P952000 in the Fast Path field.

  2. Search for the cross-reference record that you want to delete.

  3. Highlight the row for the record, and click the Delete button
