Infor Business Context

The Infor Business Context feature broadcasts contextual data from H5 application, which then triggers a related output from a subscribed Infor OS Portal context application. For the feature to work, the context application must be subscribed to the Infor Business Context message of type inforBusinessContext.

Note: The Infor Business Context option is not displayed in the Context Publisher menu when the Auto Publish Infor Context property is enabled. All data matching the specified business context fields will be automatically published when this property is enabled.

See application settings in M3 CE Core Administration Guide.

Using Infor Business Context

  1. Open a program. If program opens in B panel, select a record.
  2. Select Tools > Context Publisher > Infor Business Context.
  3. In the Infor Context Business window, the business entities are mapped to specific fields. These entities will differ depending on which M3 panel is opened.

    To use the Paparazzi context application, a reference between the business context and the corresponding BODs must be configured. The required configuration can only be performed by looking at the specific noun and how M3 data is mapped into the BOD elements.

    Field Description
    Noun This noun corresponds to the Infor Business Context.
    Document ID See M3 Business Engine BODs Mapping Documentation - Inbound and M3 Business Engine BODs Mapping Documentation - Outbound for information about how the M3 data is mapped into the Document ID of the BOD.

    If you select Auto Publish, these entities are automatically published regardless of which record you open.

    To reset the values, click Use Default.

  4. Click Save after supplying the values.
  5. Verify that all subscribed context applications are triggered to show information related to the current record.

    Context Publisher data is stored as personalization.
