Use the EDI sales order staging journal to monitor the EDI sales orders.

If you use staging in your EDI process for sales orders, the 'Sales - XML to EDI order' message imports the received sales orders into the EDI sales order journal.
These EDI sales orders are validated according to the applicable journal validation setup. If the applicable validation rules are:
  • Met, the EDI sales order is automatically approved. The approved EDI sales orders are processed by the 'Sales - EDI order to Order' message batch.
  • Not met, an error or warning is given. Before the EDI sales order can be processed further, review the errors and warnings and take appropriate actions.
For more information on staging, refer to Staging.
