The Bechtle E-Catalogue is only intended for data retrieval. For this reason, the Bechtle E-Catalogue endpoint type only supports incoming messages. The data is read and processed from the shared file folder using a polling function. 


Entity types


Bechtle endpoint entity types

To integrate with Bechtle E-Catalog, you can use only fixed Entity types. This is due to the fact that the entities available are depended on available XML file structure. Currently supported entity types:

  • Agreement
  • Catalog
  • Classification Group
  • Parties
  • Products

Fallback is an additional entity type. This is used to categorize duplicate data. With certain data structures, the double reading of data cannot be prevented.

The most commonly used inbound attributes are preconfigured in all entities.
