Questions Generic Inquiry into Business Event to monitor Import Scenarios
I have 5 Import Scenarios that run to compile customer invoices from different sources. This is all working perfectly, however I have the imports running on schedules so they trigger one after the other in order (there is about 15 minutes separation). I was thinking, is there a generic inquiry that can pull out Import Scenario status, so I can attach this to a Business Event, to fire off the subsequent Import Scenarios?
So a BA to monitor Import Scenario 1, once it changes from Processing? to Complete? it then triggers Import Scenario 2, and so on. This way if one of the imports blows out in time, it won't break the subsequent imports, or waste time waiting for a schedule when it could be processing.
Or if someone has different approach to triggering Import Scenarios, I'm all ears. To save anyone asking, yes the 5 imports are required. No, I don't believe there would be anyway to condense them into 1 Import Scenario. Yes I'm happy with the process as it works well.
Any progress on this?
We have something similar importing files from an FTP site, then shortly after running the Import Scenario to load the data from those files.
I was looking for a business event that could monitor the Import Scenario log for an error and trigger a notification.
This is a brilliant idea! I've never tried using a Generic Inquiry to "daisy chain" Import Scenarios together, but that would be really cool if someone could figure it out. Business Events seem like a "light workflow engine", but this idea would make them more like a "workflow engine" if you could pull it off.
