A subscriber is a delivery point for a QDoc or other published XML document. Another application can be the delivery point, or an instance of QXI. Subscribers have an associated delivery schedule and delivery method: either a directory location or a Web service. The subscriber is responsible for retrieving the outbound document.
A subscriber can be defined using either the 1.1 or 1.0 QDoc syntax specification. In addition you can specify parameters that are used in the most common forms of SOAP headers—or define your own header if QXI is not the intended target application.
Note: If your current QXtend installation is updated, all existing subscribers are converted to use the QDoc 1.1 specification standard. For details, refer to Installation Guide: QAD QXtend.
To bring a new subscriber up to date, a Force Publish function is available. You can also restrict specific source applications to ensure a subscriber sees only the data intended for them.
You also can configure profiles for individual subscribers by using the Subscriber Profile Configuration Parameters screen. Configuring a profile allows you to specify the event types you want to use for that subscriber profile. For details, see Configuring Subscriber Profiles
