Web Applications Desktop Integrator (WebADI) Feature for Install Base Mass Update in 12.1.3
By LuciaC-Oracle on Oct 28, 2013
The integration of WebADI technology with the Install Base Mass Update function is designed to make creation and update of bulk item instances much easier than in the past.
What is it?
WebADI is an Excel-based desktop application where users can download an Excel template with item instances pre-populated based on search criteria. Users can create and update item instances in the Excel sheet and finally upload the Excel data using an "upload" option available in the Excel menu. On upload, the modified data will bulk upload to interface tables which are processed by an asynchronous concurrent program that users can monitor for the uploaded results.
This allows users to work in a disconnected Environment: session time outs can be avoided, as once a template is downloaded the user can work in a disconnected environment and once all updates are done the new input can be uploaded. Also the data can be saved for later update and upload.
