Archive Link is a service integrated in the SAP Web Application Server for linking archived documents and the application documents entered in the SAP system. Linking documents according to content guarantees long term easy access to the documents. From the screen of the application document, you can directly display the stored document that is associated with it. You can also use attributes to search for documents. This replaces time consuming processes such as making copies of originals, searching for procedure-related information, etc. doc
Integration To use Archive Link, you must have installed a storage system. The document to be stored must already be in, or be converted to electronic format. It does not matter how the document is physically stored in the storage system. Features The following documents can be stored in a storage system using Archive Link: • • • • Incoming documents Outgoing documents Print lists Archive files
Incoming and outgoing documents are linked to the corresponding Business Objects. A business object is created in the SAP System whenever an application document is entered. The link is written in an Archive Link link table while the system is running and is associated with the On Base object. The business object and stored document must be uniquely identified for the link. The business object identification consists of: • • Client Business Object Type (abbr.: Object type)
• Business object ID (abbr. This replaces time consuming processes such as making copies of originals. for example one stored document can be linked to several business objects. We need to follow these steps to enable Archive Link with Hyland Onbase so that we can access the PDFs of the THEY utilities’ invoices: define content repository define document type . searching for procedure- related information. Different sorts of multiple references are possible.: Object ID) The stored document identification consists of: • • Content Repository ID Document ID The diagram below illustrates all the link entry data in the link entry table :an also use attributes to search for documents. or several stored documents can be linked to one business object. etc.
this currently links to a program that simulates the bill as it would be at that point in time because FICA charges are not frozen in the database and always reflect the latest status. The next step is to import PDFs and an index text file containing the keywords into OnBase. The OBJECT type should be PRINTDOC. For day forward documents this will need to be a change to the import file THEY is using to import PDF documents to OnBase. According to Gary Noe. In terms of populating data (both day forward and back file) we need the SAP Object ID that the invoice document will be attached to. . associate document type to content repository assign an Object Type. MTMEC is currently displaying the UCES invoice listing on the web page with a hyperlink and a PDF icon. Archive ID. The purpose of this implementation is to have UCES display an image of the same invoice that was sent to the customer. Here are the current keywords we are importing into OnBase through the DIP process. Archive Link when properly configured will communicate with the current On Base repository of PDFs as well any future invoices added to On Base and display them in a web page in UCES based on the user clicking the PDF icon on the bills display page. The vendor prints and mails the invoices to our members. SAP generates a file with member invoice data that we FTP to a vendor named Cash Cycle Solutions (formerly Total Billings). This value will allow OnBase to call a system web service in OnBase and create the attachment to the specified Object ID PRINTDOC. In this case its PRINTDOC. and a link table to the Document Type to import the PDF documents You can add bills to archive link using if you want to archive a PDF file in the storage system with the Identification A7 and the Bill Document type ISU_BILL. and produces a PDF invoice reflecting the previous billed charges and the up-to-date FICA charges in PDF format. We has made the recommendation that we use Archive Link functionality in SAP which does not need much coding or testing as this a flexible but very common practice. Once these documents are imported they will be added to a system workflow to facilitate the link to SAP. However.
e. Then to retrieve the PDF out of archive link a function in the event called ISU_ADD_ITEM_TO_INVOICE is used to populate the list of invoices and other charges that THEY has said to allow to appear as line items. This event already sets the indicator. Technically. These items can then be added to the same system workflow to attach to SAP. This will really be based on the format of the data that we need and volume.Here’s a screen capture of the Total Billings PDF invoice keywords after we have committed via the DIP process : To process the back file we will need a way to map keyword data in OnBase today to back file SAP Object IDs. If the . XPDF in table T_INVOICES so that a customer is able to request a PDF in the front end of SAP Biller Direct. (i. this means you ensure that the appropriate icons are shown with the indicator. Currently THEY has an active implementation for event 1231. Database scripting is the preferred method. The biggest hurdle will be adding the Object ID to the back file documents. We can use this information to populate existing documents with the necessary SAP Object ID PRINTDOC. MTMEC won’t need to make any change to the Cash Cycle Solutions interface to export any other IDs and will not need any new (keywords) that need to be exported to CCS in order to import them into OnBase with the member invoice PDF. Customer Account # and Date = SAP Object ID). We can use functionality in OnBase to do the update or we can utilize database scripting.
Using the object id which is what Archive Link would call the billing doc also known as (erdb-opbel) in the SAP database along with the Business object PRINTDOC it calls the function ARCHIV_CONNECTINFO_GET_META which will display a URL to the PDF masked under the PDF icon on the screen in UCES invoice display. This function calls is made using the following parameters the ISU billing doc number and SAP Business Object PRINTDOC.invoice already exists then only the open amount must be modified. So inside function module ARCHIV_CONNECTINFO_GET_META we call: call function module 'ARCHIV_GET_CONNECTIONS' exporting objecttype = sap_object object_id = l_objectid archiv_id = archiv_id documenttype = ar_object documentclass = doc_type limited = limited importing count = l_count reducedbylimit = reducedbylimit reducedbyauthority = reducedbyauthority tables connections = connect_info exceptions nothing_found = 1 others = 2. In addition for new invoices it is determines if the invoice is available in the archive in On base via FUNCTION 'ISU_GET_ARCHIV_FOR_EBPP'. So inside 'ARCHIV_GET_CONNECTIONS' we call: call function: ARCHIV_GET_CONNECTIONS_INT EXPORTING OBJECTTYPE = OBJECTTYPE OBJECT_ID = OBJECT_ID CLIENT = CLIENT ARCHIV_ID = ARCHIV_ID ARC_DOC_ID = ARC_DOC_ID DOCUMENTTYPE = DOCUMENTTYPE FROM_AR_DATE = FROM_AR_DATE UNTIL_AR_DATE = UNTIL_AR_DATE DOCUMENTCLASS = DOCUMENTCLASS DEL_DATE = DEL_DATE LIMITED = LIMITED NO_AUTH_CHECK = SPACE LIMIT = LIMIT IMPORTING COUNT = COUNT .

So the click calls this function GEN_EBPP_GET_INVOICE_DETAIL. * connected to SAP-Archive READ TABLE lt_connect_info INTO lw_connect_info INDEX 1. Along with I_REQUESTING_PARTNER. THEY has implemented the BAdI CL_IM_ISU_INVOICEDETAIL This BAdI is called by the front end if the customer selects the corresponding link. For the call the invoice format is set to XPDF in the parameter I_INVOICE_FORMATS. This function has an algorithm that reads the archive Link confiig and creates a URl to display in the invoice display. IF sy-subrc = 0. I_BILLING_DOC . Along with the indicator XPDF in structure C_INVOICE_FORMATS so that UCES knows it’s a PDF. This BAdI CL_IM_ISU_INVOICEDETAIL in turn calls CALL FUNCTION 'ISU_GET_INVOICES_PDF_RAW' which in turn if the PDF is specified it then performs the following subroutine after which it either returns the archived PDF or the OTF to PDF conversion of the current PDF for bill display. It does so when the icon is clicked which in turn calls the BADI GET_INVOICE_DETAIL there is an implementation for ISU. I_LANGUAGE This is supposed to return the Created corresponding binary data. The next part is how do we get the PDF to display in a windo in UCES when a user clicks on the PDF icon.Next we look to see if archive link is connected by calling function 'SCMS_URL_GENERATE' which returns an archiv_url after we pass in the archive-id we received in the communication structure along with the arc_doc_id which we also got from the communication structure from the SQL query we ran against the archive link customizing tables that Gary Noe from On Base will do.
