Building a Job – Understanding the Built-In Import Processes

When building a job, it’s helpful to understand how file definitions and import processes work to assemble the job. We’ll start with the built-in processes:

Import All Inbound EDI Data Files – Runs all active inbound EDI file definitions.

Import All Outbound EDI Data Files – Runs all active outbound EDI file definitions.

Import and Map All Outbound Application Data Files – Runs all the active outbound file definitions and maps to EDI both the application data imported, as well as any outbound transactions that are queued for mapping.

Import and Map Outbound Data (Scoped to this Job) – Similar to the above process, this process runs all active outbound file definitions, but it only maps the transactions that were imported in the current process.

Map Inbound EDI Data (Scoped to this Job) – Maps all eligible inbound transactions that were imported in the current session (job).

Map Inbound EDI Data to Application Data – Maps all eligible inbound transactions whether imported in the current session or already queued for mapping​.

In the example below, we’re setting up to create a Job that will import and map only 810 transactions. On the left side are all the processes ​available to put into the job. On the right side we’ll build the job using these processes.
As we build the job, we have added the file definitions we want to run. Since this is an 810s-only job, we only added the 810 file definitions. Some users are tempted to then add one of the two processes in the red box. If only 810 processing is desired, then we do not want to add either of these processes.
After we finished adding the processes we need, these are the processes in the resultant Outbound 810-only job.
Inbound job creation can have a similar process conundrum. If we only want some of the file definitions to be run, then the “Import All Inbound EDI Data Files” process should not be included.
After we finish adding the processes we need for our job, these are the processes in our typical limited inbound job.
