Workflow Service Update

As part of the workflow service, oInvoices must be configured to permit SPS Orders. To do this, ensure there is an oInvoices.xml file in the Workflow Service’s DefaultResultDocuments folder, which contains the following contents. Note that the default location for this file is: C:Program Files (x86)/zedIT/zed WorkFlowservice/xml/DefaultResultDocuments/oInvoices.xml.

Ensure oInvoices.xml contains the following code:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Orders xmlns="http://www.spscommerce.com/RSX">
  <Order></Order>
</Orders>

Delivery “SPS Order” Flag

By default, SAP Business One (B1) Delivery documents do not result in an Outbound ASN 856 EDI document, even when all other settings are enabled. A flag must be set on the B1 Delivery document to ensure Outbound ASN 856 EDI documents are only generated on an as-needed basis.

To generate a standalone Outbound ASN 856 EDI document, ensure the SAP Business One Delivery document has its SPS Order UDF set to “Yes”.

Set the SPS Order field to Yes for SAP Business One Delivery documents that must generate a standalone Outbound ASN 856 EDI document.
