Auto Content Security
• Special attribute classes are assigned
• On-the-fly security subsets based on values
assigned to a user
• Global across all objects
• User can be setup to view all warehouse data
but only allowed to maintain data in certain
Auto Content Security
Auto Content Security
Turn Maintenance on or
off by warehouse
Assign warehouse values for
this user
Using a security
The subset is still
(all records) i.e., all
the records this user is authorized to.
They can still subset from here.
Only warehouse 1 records appear in the list
Deployment Profiles
• Object/field assumes everything authorized
• Deployment Profile assumes nothing
What the user chooses to see
What is presented to the user
Object security
What user is authorized to
All objects and attributes
Deployment Profiles
• Object list
• Content
• Navigation
• Maintenance
• Fields
Security for: Powerlink
…and Security for: Netlink
…and Security for: System-Link
Alerts – Integrator Subscriptions
• Via e-mail, cell phone
text or system message
• Can also run a program
PO P012345
for $11,283.19
Alerts – Integrator Subscriptions
• NMS must be started
Data Sources
•Other Platforms
•Files on another iseries
•Files in another XA environment
•Install Drivers in IFS
Data Sources
•Create the Data Source – server location, login
•Build objects the normal way
Display SQL Server
• Views, subsets,
• Full navigation
• Navigation history
• Workbenches
• Code files
• Graph cards
• Compound cards
• Attachments
• Column functions
Enterprise Integrator User Exits
Create custom applications in Power-Link
Modernize existing or 3rd party applications
Common interface for user
Write your business rules
Users can perform host processes
Email, lists, on the fly analysis information,
System-link requests
Exported with object
Enterprise Integrator User Exits
Create Custom Applications
Enterprise Integrator User Exits
Generate program
Compile program
Display Compile listing
Enterprise Integrator User Exits
Want to do embedded SQL in user exits?
Change the Call Program type (may need to add
to the card)
Object Transactions
• Processes outside normal business object flow
• Better way to do Program actions
– Requires EI
– Transactions Card in Integrator
– Parameters defined as attributes
• Edits
• Default generation
• User Exits
Object Transactions
• Toolbar button to execute
• Unique set of user exits
Object transactions
• Attribute (Number of copies) is required entry
• Update User Exit calls the host print program
• Edit User Exit – Required value for Number of copies
Logical Transactions
• Subset of Standard Transaction
– Create, Change, Copy, Delete, Mass
• Allows for one click update or prompt user
• Use template to supply data
What is System-Link?
• Program to program interface between XA and other systems.
– Inquiry/Maintenance
– Replacement for offline load
– Other ERP systems
– Other platforms
• Part of Power Architecture
– CO’s, PO’s, MO’s, Engineering…
• The other client – NetLink, PowerLink
Why use System-Link
Off Line Load
•Any object available in Power-Link can be loaded
•Only certain files are available for offline load
•System-Link has a standard interface
•Every application is a different flavor of offline load
•Secondary objects can be loaded
•Extra fields defined by user
•Non-XA Primary objects can be loaded
•Add, Change and Delete are supported
•Power-Link edits are enforced
•Including user defined edits
Why use System-Link
System-Link handles:
Database files and fields
Logical fields
Business rules
User Exits
You also get Release Transparency
No worries about release upgrades
Methods to connect
• System-Link Simulator
– Use for testing/troubleshooting
• To web server via XML
– Web pages – Java/HTML
• Directly to System-Link via LPI
– RPG/CL programs
• Web Services
– Anything Microsoft-enabled
– Requires Enterprise Integrator
• IBM’s WebSphere MQ
– Global enterprises
– Requires IBM products
Local Program Interface
• RPG program you call from anywhere
• Parameters for the XML to send and receive
– Inquiry – Request rows (view) or details (cards)
– Receive the results
– Maintenance – Create records, Update an attribute
– Receive confirmation
– Send is the Request - Receive is the Response
Web Services
MS Excel Worksheet containing pricing data
A button on the worksheet sends data to an XA
XA edits the data
Accepts some
Rejects some
Error messages are returned
On the server…
•Enterprise Integrator
•Deployment Profile generated WS catalog
•Interface to data – Creates price book data
On the client…
•Microsoft Office
•Microsoft Office XP Web Services Toolkit 2.0
Price book version after
Host edits, subscriptions…everything works
