2.2.1 Inbound Processing
Inbound Processing is a tab which store baskets that have inbound direction. There are three sections available in this tabs. Those section includes Filter, Working Baskets and History Basket. All the incoming basket will store in Working Basket until you set the schedule to run or manually process them. When the baskets are done processing they will move to History Basket section automatically.
Filter is a screen where you can search the baskets. You can filter the baskets base on
Created Date and Modified Date. As you can see the results are shown as below:
Working Baskets section is a place where all the inbound processing baskets will store here and waiting to process. This section contains some buttons such are Select All, Deselect All, Delete, Delete All, Cancel, Delete All Cancelled, Reprocess and Refresh. Likewise, this section also displays the different status of attachments which is very easy for you to monitor the processing of the attachments. Those status includes:
– Init: Attachment is created.

– Failed: Attachment processing get failed.
– Cancelled: Attachment was cancel by the Administrator.
This section also contains 8 buttons. If you want to do manually processing, please click on Reprocess button.
History Basket section is a place to store the processed baskets which are move from Working Baskets. If you want to clean up all the history baskets you can click on Delete or Delete All buttons. You can also use Do maintenance (Scheduler) to perform the cleanup operation.
This tab display the interfaces that store in an Integration. You can easily check or monitor them. If you land on Batch Control board, just simply click on interface tab then you will see all the interfaces. However this tab is not editable like Interface tab in Integration detail page.
This tab use to check how the queues work. You can filter queues base on Interface Group, Interface Name and Status.

There are two schedulers available in Scheduler tab which are Attachment Process and Attachment Reprocess (reprocess the fail attachment). These schedules are for specific integration. You can set the time and start the schedule or refresh it.
