BDEx Connect currently supports a single Update Request designed to support the execution of ‘Background’ Actions (for Master Data Objects or Work Requests).
As a proof of concept the example illustrated below is supplied as standard which is the background closure of a BPEM Case.
In order to succeed the composition of this type of HTTP Request needs to be precise. To keep things as simple as they can be we’ve made sure the payload is light, so only the Action Entity itself is needed along with its ‘Execute’ property set to ‘True’. This way BDEx Connect can be certain the Action Entity is being executed.
Once the appropriate Action Entity has been identified, this could be gleaned from a previous GET Request, the submission of the PUT Request requires no additional effort other than the explicit setting of the ‘Execute’ property.
Note that upon successful execution the HTTP Response will be simply a status of 204 with no actual message content:
Note: The Background Action setting can be found in Configuration Table /BTI/MDE_C_ACT
