Export Action Mapping Basis
Sorry, couldn't find a official answer to this, and I've had different interpretations on how this worked over time, but just wanted a definitive answer:
For export actions that you intend to repeat, what is the "official" way that the Export action is defined, relative to the module you are exporting from?
We all know that import actions can be mapped to saved views, and any time that saved view is changed, the import action updates along with it. Need to add a line item or update a filter related to an import? Just do that and update the saved view, and you're good. The saved view is a good reference point / validation check for what will actually pass through.
As I understand it, that is NOT the case with Exports.
With that in mind, just wanted clarification on what "exactly" an export action maps to? Is it:
- the default module view?
- the module filter/line items shown, at the time of your export?
- and if the former, how do you designate whether new line items appear in the export action?
- (I assume it's to use the "show" command one your line items, to prevent new line items from appearing, but I've had some weirdness in these scenarios and wanted to confirm)
I've generally had to lock down export definitions tightly, due to dependent source systems. But getting more cases where people want to append line items to pre-defined, repeating exports.
