    Title:
    FBDI for Standard Operations
    Summary:
    Can I use Work Definitions FBDI to load Standard Operations?
    Content:

    I logged an SR with Oracle Support asking if there is an FBDI for Standard Operations. They have told me I can use the Work Definitions FBDI to load Standard Operations. We've gone back and forth for a couple of weeks, but they keep telling me to use the Work Definitions FBDI. When I asked for more instructions, they said to read the first page sheet in the FBDI template spreadsheet. Again, I can't find anything in there about Standard Operations. Maybe I'm missing something, but it doesn't make sense to me. The Work Definitions FBDI is for loading Work Definitions. There's nothing in there for Standard Operations, other than assigning them to a Work Definition. As far as I know the only way to load these are through ADFdi. Am I missing something? Is there a way to only populate certain fields/sheets in the FBDI Work Definition template and load Standard Operations?

    Sorry for the confusion and incorrect information you were provided.  Standard operations cannot be loaded through work definition FBDI. It can only be referenced in the work definition FBDI.

    Currently standard operations can be created, updated and deleted using a REST service, There is no FBDI or ADFDi support for standard operations.

    Information on the REST service can be found here -

        Thanks Aravindan. Not the best news, but thanks for the confirmation. I have considered exploring using REST but it's not the ideal solution, particularly for the business to use themselves after Go Live. I have completed the necessary information for my Support Engineer to raise an Enhancement Request for FBDI. However, since we're not Going Live until 1 Sept, I'd like to get some idea on whether FBDI is in the roadmap? Are you able to give me any indication as to if/when it will be delivered?

          Hi Sam,

          I would like to correct my previous response.  There is no FBDI support for standard operations. But Manufacturing Cloud does have ADFDi support and can be accessed from the Work Definition work area > Plant Setup > Manage Standard Operations in Spreadsheet. 

          https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/saas/supply-chain-management/19a/faumf/managing-a-manufacturing-plant.html#FAUMF2013845

          FBDI support is currently not on the short term roadmap. I would assume ADFDi support for standard operations will help with the go-live and post go-live.

            Thanks Aravindan. Yes I know about ADFdi and have tested it. Unfortunately, I have over 100,000 records to load. This will need to be done 4 times during the project (3 times for testing data conversion and once for Go Live). If ADFdi can only do 2000 records that's a lot of batches. A very time consuming process. I was hoping for a better way to do it.

      Hi Sam,

      You can try using the VBCS Excel plugin for running the REST services. You will essentially be running the REST services, but this is user friendly as you can execute it using Excel.

      The documentation for the VBCS Excel plug in can be found here : https://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/app-builder-cloud/visual-builder-excel/get-started-oracle-visual-builder-add-excel.html#GUID-4E7CA3BA-9F33-4531-827E-1F5BA972F237

      We created a POC for using REST services - though this is for a different REST service, you can use this example to create standard operations.

      Let us know if this helps.

      Thanks,

      Sivakumar
