Call Orchestrations from Forms Without Customizations


Did you know that you can call orchestrations and notifications from EnterpriseOne events in real-time without any customization? This brings the power of orchestrations, including process automation and integration with third-party applications, into the context of EnterpriseOne applications. As part of its continued endeavor to empower citizen developers, JD Edwards has gone a step further to make orchestrator capabilities available from interactive applications. Using form extension, citizen developers can now associate an orchestration with a form event on the glass and contextually map the orchestration parameters – enabling them to call orchestrations from the form context in real-time. This means that you can now meet tangible business logic requirements across industries and regions and for integration on the glass more easily using low-code methodologies and a low cost.

How to Call Orchestrations from Forms

A recent JD Edwards video walked through the example of creating a Sales Order for Transportation Management. It can be a tedious process that involves several steps:

  • Entering the Sales Order
  • Defining the routing options
  • Approving and confirming the shipment
  • Updating the freight charges

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could complete all of these steps with only the click of a button? With form extensibility, you can do all of this and more. All you need to do is transform these business processes into automated operations by creating an orchestration and associating it with a form event.

Associating an orchestration with a form event can be achieved in a few simple steps. Using the intuitive wizard, you can choose the control, event, and orchestration and map the input and output parameters to save the association of the orchestration with the event. By mapping the output parameters, you can map the orchestration output to the form controls. Once the association of the orchestration with the form event is completed, you can call orchestrations from the interactive application in real-time.

In the Sales Order example, the orchestration, when invoked, will create an order and update the freight charges for the order.

You can even associate a notification with an event to receive a notification when an order is created. You can achieve all of these steps without the need for any customizations.
