Creating a Capture Point for IWD Web for Automated Task Upload

In order to use the automatic job upload feature in release 9.0, you must configure a special IWD Web capture point in GAX. This type of capture point is similar to a File capture point. In its configuration you specify:

  • The locations/folders for:
    • Inbound tasks—The location to which the source system will write new XLS/XLSX/CSV files, to be fetched by the iWD Web importer.
    • Partially processed tasks—The location for files for which at least one record could not be processed.
    • Processed tasks—The location for files after they have been successfully processed by the iWD Web importer.
    • Error—The location for files containing a format error which has caused processing to fail.
  • The frequency with which the Inbound folder will be scanned.
