Operations on Request Sets

A request set in Oracle E-Business Suite is a set of reports and concurrent programs that are organized into various stages. You can use a single request set to run a set of reports and concurrent programs. Request sets are divided into one or more stages, and each stage contains a set of reports and concurrent programs. These stages are linked with each other, and the order of the execution of each stage is defined.

Microsoft BizTalk Adapter for Oracle E-Business Suite enables you to execute request sets in Oracle E-Business Suite. The request sets are exposed as operations in the Oracle E-Business adapter. Since a request set contains a set of concurrent programs, those concurrent programs are the input parameters for a request set operation. Along with the concurrent programs, the request set operation takes four complex type parameters and a simple type parameter as input.

Important

You must set the applications context for request sets in Oracle E-Business adapter before you can perform any operations on request sets. This is because setting applications context facilitates secure transactions in Oracle E-Business Suite by setting user preferences (such as responsibility, organization, and language settings) and access control for an artifact. For information about applications context, and how to set it, see Set Application Context.

Complex type parameters

  • SetRelClassOptions: Enables you to set scheduling options for the request set. If both SetRelClassOptions and SetRepeatOptions are set then SetRelClassOptions will take precedence. SetRelClassOptions takes the following options as parameters:

    • Application: Indicates the short name of the application associated with the request set.

    • ClassName: Indicates the name of the class associated with the request set.

    • CanceOrHold: Indicates the Cancel or Hold flag.

    • StaleDate: Indicates the date on or after which this request set will be canceled if the request set has not yet run.

    • ContinueOnFail: Indicates whether the request set submission should continue or throw an exception in case SetRelClassOptions fails. You can specify “True” (continue) or “False” (throw an exception).

  • SetPrintOptions: Enables you to set the print options for the request set. SetPrintOptions takes the following options as parameters:

    • Printer: Indicates the printer name where the request set output should be sent.

    • Style: Indicates the print style used to print the request set output. For example, you can specify the orientation (“Landscape” or “Portrait”).

    • Copies: Indicates the number of copies to be printed of the request set output.

    • SaveOutput: Indicates whether or not to save the output file. You can specify “True” or “False”.

    • PrintTogether: Applicable only for sub-requests. Indicates how the output of sub-requests is printed. If you specify “Y”, the output of sub-requests is printed only after all the sub-requests are complete. If you specify “N”, the output of each sub-request is printed as it completes.

    • ContinueOnFail: Indicates whether the request set submission should continue or throw an exception in case SetPrintOptions fails. You can specify “True” (continue) or “False” (throw an exception).

  • SetRepeatOptions: Enables you to set the repeat options for the request set. SetRepeatOptions takes the following options as parameters:

    • RepeatTime: Indicates the time of day to repeat the request set.

    • RepeatInterval: This parameter is applicable only when RepeatTime is NULL. Indicates the interval between resubmissions of the request. Use this option along with RepeatUnit to specify the time between resubmissions.

    • RepeatUnit: This parameter is applicable only when RepeatTime is NULL. The unit of time used along with RepeatInterval to specify the time between resubmissions of the request. You can specify “Minutes”, “Hours”, “Days” or “Months”.

    • RepeatType: This parameter is applicable only when RepeatTime is NULL. Indicates whether the repeat interval is applied after the “start” of a previous request set execution or after the “end” of a previous request set execution.

    • RepeatEndTime: Indicates the date and time to stop resubmitting the request set.

    • ContinueOnFail: Indicates whether the request set submission should continue or throw an exception in case SetRepeatOptions fails. You can specify “True” (continue) or “False” (throw an exception).

  • SetNlsOptions: Enables you to set the NLS options for the request set. SetNlsOptions takes the following options as parameters:

    • Language: Indicates the NLS language.

    • Language: Indicates the language territory.

    • ContinueOnFail: Indicates whether the request set submission should continue or throw an exception in case SetNlsOptions fails. You can specify “True” (continue) or “False” (throw an exception).

Simple type parameter

StartTime: Indicates the time at which the request set should start running.

If the request set completes successfully, a concurrent request ID is returned. Otherwise, “0” is returned.
