Hello,

 

 

 

A customer wants to print automatically an RTreport to PDF upon ending of a batch. He wants to use as much standard PI functionalities.

 

So these was my idea:

 

- The batch comes in via the DeltaV batch interface. Can we link the batches to AF so to know that a batch is done or a new batch came in?

 

- Use a web service as delivery channel endpoint.

 

- Give batch data (batchID, start - endtime, ....) as web parameters to the webservice

 

- The webservices can then create the RTreport URL

 

- And then the printing to PDF ... anybody an idea?

 

 

 

So you see, it is still in a begin phase.

 

All suggestions, other solutions or examples are welcome.

 

 

 

Johan
