4 Understanding Mobile Barcode Scanning

This chapter discusses these topics:

4.1 Barcode Scanning Overview

There are many JD Edwards EnterpriseOne mobile applications that are designed to scan data from a barcode and populate data into the respective fields. To scan barcode data, you can use the native camera on your device or a third-party handheld Bluetooth-enabled scanning device. To use this functionality, you must create barcodes that represent a single field in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne system. Currently, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne mobile applications do not accept barcodes that consist of data for multiple fields.

You can generate barcodes using services such as those offered by Barcodes Inc.

Note:

Oracle is not affiliated with Barcodes, Inc., and does not require or recommend that you use this service to create your barcodes.

Set the Bluetooth option in your device's settings to disable Bluetooth if you want to use the native device camera to scan barcodes of equipment number. Enable the Bluetooth option if you want to use a Bluetooth-enabled scanning device to scan the barcodes. To scan barcodes using a Bluetooth scanning device, you must configure the scanning device on the mobile device.

4.2 Setting Up the Bluetooth Option in the Mobile Device to Scan Barcodes

Many of the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne mobile applications have fields into which you can scan data. A QR Code icon is displayed next to the fields to which you can scan data.

You can populate these fields using three options:

  • Use the keyboard on your mobile device to manually enter the data. Alternately, you can tap the search and select button to search and select a piece of equipment.

  • Use the camera application on your mobile device to scan the data. To use this option, you must disable the Bluetooth option in your device settings.

  • Use a Bluetooth-enabled scanning device to scan the data. To use this option, you must:

    1. Enable the Bluetooth option in your device settings.

    2. Configure the third-party scanning device to connect to your mobile device.

    Note:

    When you enable the Bluetooth option in your device settings, the system may lock the keyboard. Consult the user manual of your third-party scanning device for instructions on how to use the keyboard when the scanning device is active.
