Profiles are views of business objects tailored for the requirements of specific subscribers.
To select which components of a business object are sent to which subscribers, QXO lets you define profiles. The way you define a profile is nearly identical to the way you define a business object.
Business objects and profiles are closely linked. When you create or copy a business object, a default profile with the same name is automatically created for it. When you add or delete tables or fields from a business object, the change is automatically reflected in the associated profiles as well. If you change the name of a business object, a new default profile with the same name as the new business object name is created for it. Any existing profiles associated with the business object remain unchanged.
Besides the default profile, some business objects may also have default data synchronization profiles supplied by QAD. These data synchronization profiles are used for synchronization of data between different QAD Enterprise Applications domains or instances. A data synchronization profile usually has the same name as that of the corresponding QDoc used on the QXtend Inbound side and also contains the QDoc version information. Default data synchronization profiles typically use UIAPI QDocs. In QAD EE, if there is a SIAPI QDoc available for the business object, then the default profile uses this SIAPI because of its better performance.
Profiles can be triggered to be published only when certain event types were the original trigger for the raw message.
Important: New customers to QXtend will always use QDoc Version 1.1. QDoc Version 1.0 is described for backward compatibility reasons.
