global with sharing class BillingDocumentPostingService

A service providing functionality for posting Billing Documents to create Transactions.



global static void postNow(c2g.BillingDocumentPostingService.PostingRequest request)

Posts one or more billing documents immediately, instead of waiting for background posting. Documents posted in this way will be removed from the queue of documents to be posted by the background posting job. Use the PostFDNBillingDocuments (Post FDN Billing Documents) custom permission to grant permissions on this method. This method can only post billing documents from one company at a time. Documents to be posted must:
- Have a status of 'Complete'
- Have a Foundations company that matches an FFA company
- Have a currency that matches an existing accounting currency for the company
- Either have a document date that lies within an open period, or have a period override corresponding to an open period
- Have an account with an accounts receivable control
- Have lines with products that have a sales revenue account
- Not have already been posted The postNow method cannot post billing documents that were completed by a user in another company. We recommend that you assign the "FFA Integrations - FDN Billing Document - Retry Post" permission set to users who will trigger a call to this API. Users must also be logged into the company that matches the billing document being posted.
