Release 12 – Order Management System Parameters Setup
Parameters set up is one of the significant steps in Order Management Set up. These Parameters define basic steps or action to be taken as required. For example, when to start an audit trail or what to do when there is no response from the approver etc. The Parameters can be grouped into specific categories when creating them.
The values of these parameters can be set-up using tables or constant values. To navigation to the parameter definitions and values set up is as follows,
Order Management -> Setup-> System Parameters
The ‘define’ form gives a provision to create a new parameter. The interface is very straight forward. It asks to define the parameter code, name, description, category, value set, and open orders check. Value set allows us to select the type of value the parameter can take. It can take values from a table or the values can be entered as characters or numbers depending on the selection that is made. The category is taken from the lookup type ‘OM_PARAMETER_CATEGORY’.
Once the parameters are defined it has to be given a value when it is used in the order management set up for an organization. The ‘Values’ form can be selected by navigating as described above. The form has a field that displays the selected organization. The category can be selected to display the parameters only for the required category. The ‘Show all’ option will display all parameters from all categories. If ‘Show all’ option is selected the category field will be disabled. The required changes can be made to the parameter values and then it can be saved.
