  •  Inbound Processing:-

Inbound Processing tabs contain 5 differences sections which are Filter, Bulk Interface Scheduler, Bulk Data Inbox, Bulk Data Processing, and Bulk Monitor. Each section plays different roles in bulk processing. The following will describe in detail each section and how they work.

  •  Filter

The filter is a screen where you can search for Interface Name. If you filter for a specific interface, the result will show each section as below:

 Bulk Interface Scheduler:-

This section uses to monitor two schedulers Processing and Reprocessing. You can only Start/Stop the schedule here. If you want to set the time for your attachment processing, you have to enter the Scheduler tab. It only shows Job Id, Last Run Date, and Next Run Date.

Bulk Data Inbox:-

When data pushed from the client using Bulk API, they will appear in this section. This means it contains new incoming data. The bulk processing scheduler will fetch the data from this section and process. So it is a place to store all the attachments which have been integrating from the external system. It contains 6 buttons which are Delete, Delete All, View List, Process Bulk Attachment, Upload, and Refresh. If you want to clear the attachment you can click on Delete and Delete All buttons. To process manually, you
have to click on Process Bulk Attachment.

Bulk Data Processing:-

Bulk Data Processing is used to store data that are processing. These data will remove after it has done to the Bulk Monitor section. Whenever all the attachments that store has faced some problems like crashing you can use the Delete button to eliminate them. But if you want to stop this attachment processing you need to go to Apex job to abort them. Otherwise, the attachment will keep on processing. You can do reprocessing by checkbox and click on the “Re-Initialload” button.

Bulk Monitor:-

On the other hand, all the attachments will also move to “Bulk monitor”. In this section, you can monitor the total records of attachments, total batch and batches that had processed. Likewise, you can also know if the attachment is completed, failed or pending.
