EDI Integration with Dynamics SL Using Catalina

If you need EDI integration between your trading partners and Dynamics SL, you can use Catalina’s API for SL to get data in and out of Dynamics SL. One of the simplest of transactions is order management. If you have a trading partner that needs to send you PO’s so that you can then fulfill, the most common documents used are:

  • Inbound Documents
    • 850: This is a purchase order to fulfill
  • Outbound Documents
    • 855: An immediate response sent back to your trading partner acknowledging that you received the transaction
    • 997: An acknowledgement that you have received the transaction and often when you will pass back a reference number for your internal order number
    • 856: A shipper notification that notes what has shipped on the PO when a shipper is generated

The key to this is a data mapping layer that allows you to translate the inbound EDI documents and transform it into something that the Catalina API can understand. The reverse is true when data needs to be sent from SL out to your trading partner. The Catalina API will retrieve the data and then the translation will transform that data into an EDI document to send back to your customer.
