    I'd like to schedule the Import Blanket Agreements process for All Buyers.

    Currently I can only see a way to run the job for one buyer at the time.

     

    Additionally I'd like to know how often it normally runs? Our contract process usually proceed immediately.

    Hi David,

    Even if there's a buyer specified, it will run for all buyers.

    The process assigns a buyer to the documents you are importing based on the buyer name that you have provided in the interface data.

    Only when there isn't one it uses the buyer runtime parameter for defaulting.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Regards,

    Suman,

      David,

      Is the Default Buyer runtime parameter on the Import Job making you think that the job is run for one buyer at a time?

      I can confirm that that is not the case. The Default buyer runtime parameter kicks in as a defaulting mechanism if the interface payload does not identify a named buyer for the document to be imported.

      Regards,

      Suman.

        Howdy Suman,

        So if there is no buyer specified it will run for all buyers by default?
