Import Part from Tools Menu.
How to import parts from Tool menu . We need to do an automation where we have only source of file with Part and Supplier details . How can we provide source file if configuring the PX from tool option. ?
Also is it possible that import process can run in background and user can perform other task in webclient.?
User doesnt want to use Import option and mapping file.
If all the necessary data for the import is in the file and the format of the file is pre-defined, I agree with Karthik’s idea. Use an object in Agile where the users can upload the file and then trigger the import PX from the Action menu of the object. The PX can use AIS to trigger the import by using pre-defined import mapping file. This PX can be configured to be a Post Async event to submit job in the background while allowing the user to continue.
To take this further – to allow auditing and status reporting after the import, I suggest using a change request object (maybe a different subclass or categorized specifically). The user can create the change request, attach the import file and submit. The PX runs on submit to import the file and then moves the change to either Review or Released status depending on errors/success of the request.
