Example of Defining Data Maps to Use with the DTU
This topic shows how data mapping is defined to convert a quote into a sales order using the DTU. This is in essence Auto Quote function of the DTU. This example guides you though the mapping in the application.
The data copied over mainly consists of a three-level hierarchy:
- Line items
- Extended attributes (XA)
There are also other auxiliary entities such as payments, requested, and promised scheduled lines. This example shows how header (Mapping Headers), line items (Mapping Line Items) and XA (Mapping the Extended Attributes) are mapped. Other entities are mapped like either line items or XA. First, you must find the data map object where the header, line item, or XA are mapped as described in Finding the Data Map Object.
