|Import SIE (SweBase)
|Import of SIE files to be created in the general journal set up on the SIE Import List page. This integration type can only be used if the SweBase app is installed.
|Import Reconciliation (SweBase)
|Import of bank files to be created in the journal set up on the Bank file type setup page. This integration type can only be used if the SweBase app is installed.
The Integration Types Import SIE (SweBase) and Import Reconciliation (SweBase) uses SweBase functionality to parse and validate the files. One of the upsides of using Spider to import these files through the integration queue is that it allows you to import multiple files (in one action) when you have specified a communication method for your integration (instead of selecting each file manually).
The reports "Import to Integration Queue", "Process Integration Queue" and "Import to Integration Queue and Process" allows users to import and process records in the integration queue. These reports can be Enqueued in Eagle to import and process records in the integration queue for multiple companies in the same or in other environments and tenants. Find details for the reports and learn How To Set Up Functions for Apps in Eagle.
Eagle enables service providers such as service centers, service agencies and accounting firms to work centrally and manage all the service recipients from one view. Spider makes your Business Central the spider in the web of all your integrations and enables you to manage configurable integrations and master data across multiple companies, environments and tenants. By using both Spider and Eagle it is possible to manage integrations, master data and work centrally.
