EXTOL Business Integrator - Extracting EDI Data Automatically

TAGS: EXTOL Business Integrator / EXTOL Business Process Script / EXTOL customization /


In EXTOL Business Integrator it is not easy to automatically extract inbound x12/EDIFACT data where all the header/footer segments are intact, ie, ISA/GS and IEA/GE records. The same also goes for EDIFACT segments: UNB/UNH and UNT/UNZ.

The only real way to scan and extract EDI data (x12/EDIFACT) would be to perform the function in Receive.edi Business Process Script.

In our example below, we copied the Receive EDI Business Process Script and added 3 new tasks

  • Convert Storage ID to String
  • String - Contains
  • Custom Business Process Script - Performs special process if certain condition is met
