We are a supplier and I want to fetch new purchase orders from Ariba by polling.
The documentation in the Ariba help for "cXML PEnding Queue" (https://uex.ariba.com/node/413) says
"You can configure your Ariba Network accounts to retrieve cXML documents through the pending queue using the cXML Pending Queue routing method."
..."use the GetPending/Data Download transaction method."
..."You can use this routing method to retrieve the following transactions:
• New Purchase Orders
• Changed/Canceled Purchase Orders
• Blanket Purchase Orders
• Status Update Requests"
I noticed cXML Pending Queue as an option for the routing in Network Settings>cXML Setup Routings for new orders, so set it.
If I go to our test catalogue on our account, and test it, generating a test purchase order, with our routing to cXML Pending Queue, I can see the PO appear in the queue through the web GUI at
InBox>>Pending Queue (from extended menu)
In there when the Document Type filter is set to "Purchase Order" it s possible to see the PO. I now want to use the API to get hold of that PO to process it.
Page 249 of the CXML Solouttions Guide describes the "Get Pending/Data DownloadTransaction", which seems like the way we would obtain these orders.
I can't get those test orders to be returned to me issuing one of those requests.
I am using our test Ariba account and po generated by the catalog tester, so they are from the catalog test "customer".
I have lifted the example from the solutions guide. I wonder if the solutions guide is missing a message type for this?
I would expect to pass something like PurchaseOrderRequest in the <MessageType>PurchaseOrderRequest</MessageType> node???
There are the following listed, but not mention of purchase orders.
A pointer in the right direction please...
Following is what I am posting, just getting 200 OK back, no list of pending purchase orders...
Obviously I am changing the credentials for our own in "from" and "sender", supplying our secret. I am using Ariba generic network ID, untouched as shown in the XML below.
