instructor leading hands-on JDE Orchestrator training

Realize orchestration today with JDE Orchestrator Studio training

Orchestration is the buzz of the JD Edwards community. Yet truth be told many users are still scratching their heads. ERP Suites consultants created comprehensive, hands-on JDE Orchestrator Studio training to close the knowledge gap. It’s designed to help you understand what Orchestrator is, what it can do and how you can use it to transform your business.

What is JDE Orchestrator Studio?

Technically speaking, JD Edwards Orchestrator Studio is a tool that allows EnterpriseOne applications to consume and process data from multiple sources. It could be an HTML page, software or even botware. As long as your front-end can handle REST interfaces, you can use the Orchestrator. And this gives you the power to make fast and effortless real-time updates.

What can orchestrations do?

ERP Suites consultants continue to find creative ways to drive efficiency using orchestrations. For example, we can now display a UBE PDF in two quick steps. We also use orchestrations to create business workflows that sync with mobile data collectors. The possibilities are seemingly endless.

With orchestrations, you can:

  • Utilize Service Requests to use E1 apps
  • Set rules to determine run criteria
  • Run data requests
  • Use data requests to allow data return and/or perform an aggregation directly from an E1 table or business view

12.2.1

Beginning with Tools Release 9.2.1.2, the ADF server may be registered and components installed through Server Manager. Features include:

  • Data request service — Users can create orchestrations that retrieve data from JD Edwards’ tables and business views. The returned data can be aggregated as a sum, average, or count to name a few. This feature gives users access to the wealth of data stored in JDE E1 tables while enforcing JDE security.
  • Email notifications as output — Users can include an orchestration step that sends a notification via the JDE E1 Work Center or any email system. For example, an orchestration can be set up to notify a purchasing agent via email when a new purchase order is generated.
  • Connections to other orchestrations — Users can include an orchestration step to invoke another JDE orchestration, thus  “chaining” them together. For example, an orchestration might be designed to automatically generate a purchase order when inventory quantity reaches a reorder point.
  • Control over orchestration output — Users can employ output mappings for greater control over the format of the data returned in an orchestration’s REST service response. Therefore, external systems that invoke orchestrations can more easily find and understand the expected response.
