Create Sales Orders using Web services in Sage Enterprise Management

By | October 23, 2012

In our last blog, we had an overview of Web services in Sage X3. Now we are going to dive in further into this topic and will see in detail, how we can create transactions like Purchase Order, Sales order, invoice etc. in Sage X3.

To start with you must have all the pre-requisites as mentioned in our last blog. Once the systems and configuration are in place, we can start the process.

First, we will have to create and publish the web service for Sales Order from “Development -> Processes -> Processes -> Web services

Following is the brief on the fields on this screen:

  1. Publication name: This is the name of the web service that would be used to invoke this web service.
  2. Type of Web service:
    Object: A set of methods to create, modify or delete an X3 object record and also to execute buttons or menus linked to those objects, with certain conditions:
    Sales Orders, Customers, Products etc.
    Subprogram: A method for calling an X3 subprogram (X3 code) declared in the Subprogram Dictionary, for example: Get a price list for a product/customer combination or Get a product picture.
  3. Definitions tab
    • Object: If the type of the web service is object then Object of the transaction or master needs to be specified.
    • Transaction: Choice of the transaction for this object, which facilitates access of fields and action.
    • Invisible Fields: Certain fields that do not appear on the screen but can be accessed through web services.
    • Processing: If the object type is subprogram, then the processing for the subprogram is specified over here.
    • Subprogram: Name of the subprogram (in the processing) to be accessed.
  4. Mapping tab:

    The mapping tab shows all the fields for the transaction or master that can be accessed through web service. You can select or deselect the fields to be made accessible.
  5. Buttons:
    Publication: This button is used to publish the web service. Make sure that the web service is published every time it is altered.
    Now, let us create a Sales Order using the Web servers’ web service tester:

    1. Put in the Web service name i.e. ORDER.
    2. Then enter the order number in the first key box. Click ‘Read’. You would get the result in the Reply box.
    3. Copy the content of reply and paste it the Parameters box. Replace <RESULT> </RESULT> tag with <PARAM></PARAM> tag.
    4. Remove the Order number. Click on Create.

You would get the details of the newly created order.

I hope this blog was helpful in getting you started with the web services. Stay with us while do more interesting stuff using web services.
