The Requestor/Key Holder Import Transaction Type requires at least one Repair Center added to the Repair Center Tab.
When you select the Transaction Type, WebTMA automatically loads the required fields in the mapping grid. These lines display a red icon in the left column until the row is mapped to the remote columns in the third-party database.
WebTMA filters the column field selection to prevent duplicate selection. For example, Last Name is not available for selection when you click the Add Column link because it is already selected.
When enabled, the optional Create Key Holder column creates a corresponding Key Holder import from the same data source.
Reminder: The lines that auto-populate the grid are required.
The Server fields are auto-populated using the entries made to the Detail window during Universal Interface Client Service Installation.
WARNING: The Server-related fields can be edited in WebTMA; however, this should only be done by highly qualified personnel. Changes saved here overwrite the contents of the Detail setup windows. It is preferable to make changes to the Detail setup window where you can test your connection.
