XREF Overview (Type: PPT, Total Page: 19)
XREFs are used to store entity ID mappings across all the application instances that participate in the AIA integration. Unli
ke DVMs, XREFs are usually not seeded with any data at installation time, but rather become populated with data over ti
me as transactions are processed through the integration. However the XREF definitions must still be updated during the
development phase to add the additional column to hold mapped Identifiers for the new application instance. XREF defin
itions are established on a target server during deployment via the processing of text script files that can found under th
e $AIA_HOME/PIPS/Core/SeedData/XREF directory. There files must be modified to add the additional column definition f
or your new application instance. The new column name must match the application instance's System ID
Using Cross Referencing in AIA console UI
You should maintain cross references for unique identifiers from the loosely coupled applications.
Use EBM Object identification elements and the Cross Referencing APIs provided by Mediator:
Populate XRef, Lookup XRef, Delete Xref
