Running a DDS Job
Intacct exposes a set of API functions for interacting with the Intacct Data Delivery Service (DDS) programmatically. The DDS methods work in conjunction with the
DDSJOB object. Note that before you run a DDS job, you must have a cloud storage target defined in the Intacct system.
Because DDS is designed to work on very large datasets, DDS jobs run asynchronously.
To initiate a DDS job, invoke the runDdsJob method. This method creates a DDS job record and submits it to the Intacct Message Queue. After successfully inserting the job in the queue,
runDdsJob returns the newly created
DDSJOB record. This record will have a
RECORDNO field, which is the key to the record.
Following is a basic sequence diagram for running a DDS job.
The DDS Manager regularly polls the queue for new jobs and processes the jobs. DDS does not actively communicate job status. To get the DDS job status, the client should use the read method on the
DDSJOB job object and pass the
RECORDNO returned by
When the job is complete, the
DDSJOB record will contain a list of CSV files published to the Cloud Storage target.
