Inbound Integrations to IFS Using Custom APIs¶
A special scenario is where a third-party system can handle REST APIs and JSON data but needs to send structured data to IFS in one message (e.g. a supplier and one or more addresses).
Such Projections can be created as customization using a construct called “structures”, which can be nested, in the Projection model. Development – Projection modelling and additional PL/SQL code calling core business logic – is done in IFS Developer Studio and needs to be source controlled and deployed through deliveries. While such APIs would be a customization, they are non-intrusive and should only invoke existing business logic.
