A trigger program should be scheduled to pick up the Task status changes that need to be interfaced to the external system(s). This trigger program selects the appropriate AC records, dependent on the configuration set up above, and passes it through the mapping engine. It then stores the mapped integration transactions into a set of standard tables.


Selection Option Description
External System The external system the trigger program is to be run against
Integration Trigger Condition The trigger program /BTI/TE_INTEG_TRIGGER reads the updated business task based on various conditions defined in table /BTI/TE_INT_COND. Although historically with the Integration Framework it was only possible to trigger the outbound integration based on changes to Business Task [Deployment Status], it is also now possible to trigger based on other updates, such as updates to other Business Task standard or custom fields. If nothing is entered in this field, then the default will be ‘Based on status update(Traditional)’.
Task ID Task(s) the trigger program will be run against
Task Type Task Type(s) the trigger program will be run against
Task Reference Task Reference the trigger program will be fun against
Task Priority Task Priority the trigger program will be run against
Send previous changes Select this checkbox if Task status changes is ‘backwards’ in the process and this change should be sent to the external system
Run as though Last Run on The date and time of the ‘last’ run can be entered manually if this flag is checked
Run Date The date of the last run (if manually entered)
Run Time The time of the last run (if manually entered)

Figure: A variant of of Program /BTI/TE_INTEG_TRIGGER needs to be created and scheduled to run periodically (typically every 5-10 minutes).

Using trigger condition based on the update in standard/custom field of a Busines Task

Field Description
