In this blog, we will discuss how to generate a PDF using OIC and BI reports by supplying data from PaaS DB. So, let’s begin.

INTEGRATION FLOW:

STEP 1: Create a procedure to generate XML.

create or replace PACKAGE BODY IMS_GEN_INV_PDF_PKG

AS

PROCEDURE generate_invoice_xml (

    p_invoice_id IN VARCHAR2,

    p_xml OUT CLOB

) AS

    l_header_xml XMLTYPE;

    l_lines_xml XMLTYPE;

    l_project_lines_xml XMLTYPE;

    l_res XMLTYPE;

BEGIN

     SELECT XMLELEMENT(

               “header”,

               XMLFOREST(

                   ih.CUST_NAME AS “name”,

                   ih.BILL_TO_ADDRESS AS “bill_to”,

                   ih.BILL_TO_STATE_CODE AS “bill_state_code”,

                   ih.BILL_TO_GSTIN AS “bill_gstin”,

                   ih.SHIP_TO_ADDRESS AS “ship_to”,

                   ih.SHIP_TO_STATE_CODE AS “ship_state_code”,

                   ih.SHIP_TO_GSTIN AS “ship_gstin”,

                   ih.attention AS “attention”,

                   ih.PPM_DRAFT_INVOICE_NUMBER AS “invoice_no”,

                   TO_CHAR(ih.INVOICE_DATE, ‘DD-Mon-YYYY’) AS “invoice_date”,

                   TO_CHAR(ih.INVOICE_DUE_DATE, ‘DD-Mon-YYYY’) AS “due_date”,

                   ih.reference AS “reference”,

                   ih.CUST_PO_NUM AS “po_number”,

                   ih.TOTAL_HEADER_AMOUNT_IN_BASE_CURRENCY AS “total_amount_due”,

                   ih.TOTAL_HEADER_AMOUNT_IN_BASE_CURRENCY AS “total_amount_due_rounded”,

                   spell_number(ih.TOTAL_HEADER_AMOUNT_IN_BASE_CURRENCY) AS “total_amount_in_words”,

                   ih.qr_code AS “qr_code_string”,

                   ih.irn_no AS “irn_no”,

                   ih.ack_date as “ack_date”,

                   ih.ack_no as “ack_no”,

                   ih.sign_string AS “sign_string”

               )

           )

    INTO l_header_xml

    FROM XXIM_AR_INVOICE_HEADERS_TBL ih

    WHERE ih.INVOICE_HDR_ID = p_invoice_id;

    SELECT XMLELEMENT(

               “lines”,

               XMLAGG(

                   XMLELEMENT(

                       “line”,

                       XMLFOREST(

                           ROWNUM AS “sr_no”,

                           il.HSN AS “hsn_sac_codes”,

                           il.LINE_DESCRIPTION AS “description”,

                           evt.AUTHENTICATION_EFFORTS AS “quantity”,  

                           evt.BILLING_RATE AS “unit_price”,

                           il.TOTAL_BILLING_AMOUNT_IN_BASE_CURRENCY AS “line_total”

                       )

                   )

               )

           )

    INTO l_lines_xml

    FROM XXIM_AR_INVOICE_LINES_TBL il,

    XXMA_PAAS_EVENT_TBL evt WHERE evt.PROJECT_ID = il.PROJECT_ID

    and il.INVOICE_HDR_ID = p_invoice_id and evt.INV_HEADER_ID=p_invoice_id;

    SELECT XMLELEMENT(

               “project_lines”,

               XMLAGG(

                   XMLELEMENT(

                       “project_line”,

                       XMLFOREST(

                           evt.PROJECT_NAME AS “project_name”,

                           evt.EMPLOYEE_NAME AS “employee_name”,

                           res.BILLING_ROLE AS “role”,

                           evt.INV_CYCLE_START_DATE AS “from_date”,

                           evt.INV_CYCLE_END_DATE AS “to_date”,

                           evt.AUTHENTICATION_EFFORTS AS “billed_hours”,

                           evt.BILLING_RATE AS “billing_rate”,

                           evt.BILLING_PERC AS “billing_percentage”,

                           evt.DISCOUNT AS “discount”,

                           evt.AMOUNT_IN_BILL_TXN_CURR AS “invoice_amount”

                       )

                   )

               )

           )

    INTO l_project_lines_xml

    FROM

    XXMA_PAAS_EVENT_TBL evt,

    XXIM_AR_INVOICE_HEADERS_TBL hdr,

    XXFUSION_RESOURCE_ASSG_MST_TBL res

    WHERE evt.PROJECT_ID = hdr.PROJECT_ID and evt.PROJECT_ID = res.PROJECT_ID and hdr.INVOICE_HDR_ID = p_invoice_id;

 select XMLELEMENT(“invoice”, l_header_xml, l_lines_xml, l_project_lines_xml) into l_res from dual;

    p_xml:=convert(l_res.getclobval() ,’UTF8′);

END generate_invoice_xml;

end IMS_GEN_INV_PDF_PKG;

STEP 2: Create RTF template based on above XML.

a) Create Data Model

  • Create the data model with the required parameters and select sample XML code to build the RTF template.

b) Create Report from the Data Model

  • Create report by sending sample data and format the RTF template.

STEP 3: OIC to send XML data to BI RUN REPORT SERVICE and get the final PDF output.

a) Choose ATP DB Connection to run procedure.

    • Select ATP DB connection.
    • Give any name for the endpoint and choose Invoke stored procedure in the dropdown as an operation.

    • Choose the Schema where the procedure is written and select package and procedure under that schema.

    • Verify the Details, which are chosen in the summary part.

  • Here Invoice_ID is taken as Input parameter to generate XML, which is mapped in the mapper.

b) Choose SOAP BI connection to send XML output to BI report.

    • Once the XML output is generated from procedure, add SOAP connection by giving any name for EndPoint.

    • Choose runReport operation from the dropdown.

    • Select Accept attachments in request and tick No to configure headers.

    • Check Summary for WSDL and selected operation details and click on finish button.

    • Give attributeLocale as “en-US” and attributeTemplate as “pdf”.
    • reportAbsolutePath is taken from the fusion report. For ex: “/Custom/Projects/Revenue Integration /Report TM-Resourcewise-with GST.xdo”.

    • reportRawData will take the XML output we get from the response by running Procedure.
    • sizeOfDataChunk Download will take value ‘-1’.
    • Validate mapping and finish the process.

  • You can map the output base64 report bytes to the response of the integrations – which can be used by UI app to download the PDF.
