Batch print multiple, unique documents from single web request
Hi I'm using Bartender 2016 R3 and it is working great, I'm just curious if there is a way to create a print request that corresponds to multiple labels as opposed to 1 request = 1 label/print job. My setup currently is using the Integration Builder to wait for a web request, then when received use the JSON key/values within as the named data sources for an existing template to create & print a label. This works, but it will only print one document (+copies) per web request. Typically, I need to create multiple labels that are for the same shipment (one for each item on the shipment), and I want them all sent to the printer in a single job (10 labels in 1 print job instead of 1:1). Since everything is sent as a single print job, if multiple shipments were printed there is no guarantee over the order. I've added a restriction in my web server to work around this, but print jobs not sent by that server won't follow the same rules.
Is there a way to do this with the Integration Builder or some other tool in the Enterprise Automation edition? Each label would have some unique values, and since at this time it appears JSON Arrays are not readable by Bartender, I guess I would need to send something else in my request. BTXML's appear to send multiple print jobs as well, but I've only just started testing with them.
Correct, Integration Builder doesn't natively read in JSON arrays. Currently, you would have to put your data into some type of text delimited format. Sending data in BTXML format would be an option.
There is already a feature request in our system for using JSON arrays and Integration that I will add you to the list.0
When using a text delimited will it add the named data sources to each document & print them in a single print job? It wasn't a very scientific test but it looked like a single job for each document instead of 1 for many when using a BTXML file (I just tried watching the print queue after running it).0
