To send an outbound invoice from EXTOL Business Integrator we need to implement an Application Analysis Ruleset. An application analysis ruleset is different from a ‘normal’ ruleset in the aspect that there is only a source schema and not a target schema.
The purpose of an EBI analysis ruleset is to group like records to create a single document, ie. an outbound EDI document.
To compare this process to EXTOL EDI Integrator, think of an outbound fileset. An outbound fileset has an envelope set-up where we determine the trading partner, group code, message ID, and message class. We are essentially performing the same steps.
In our example, we group the data using the JD Edwards F47046 (invoice header) file. Our example can be adapted to any other ERP process too

Note: This process can seem overwhelming at times but over time you will familiarize yourself with the steps. If you need help with further explanation or assistance with implementation, please feel free to contact me.
