Inventory APIs
Open Item Interface You can import items from any source into Oracle Inventory and Oracle Engineering using the Item Interface. With this interface, you can convert inventory items from another inventory system, migrate assembly and component items from a legacy manufacturing system, convert purchased items from a custom purchasing system, and import new items from a Product Data Management package. The Item Interface validates your data, ensuring that your imported items contain the same item detail as items you enter manually in the Master Item window.
