The Expense Management application provides a shell script to the Taxback application. The shell script extracts the expense report data and uses the Expense Management’s REST APIs to retrieve expense reports and receipt data in the JSON format. The script reads the connection information from the properties file and extract the expense reports data based on the workflow activity number and the date range. The date considered by the script is the Time Entered Queue of the work item. The Taxback can start the reclaim process once the extraction is completed.
