Based on my research it appears there are web services to crerate orders in Ariba from external sources, but I am failing to find anything for the other direction.
For example, a software download mechanism, that will validate an order with Ariba, before installing a software that requires a license? Is something like this available?
The input would be Order #, the output could be Order Status, Item purchased, date order submitted, etc ... and it should be real time!
I contacted Craig with the Ariba Customer Support team concerning your questions. Based on what you're seeking, it's best for you to contact your Ariba Account Executive who can help connect you with the Solutions Consulting team.
