Upcoming WMS Acquisitions API Changes
OCLC will be installing changes to the WMS Acquisitions API which affect Invoice items and Ship-to/Bill-to addresses. This change will affect the Purchase Order, Invoice and Invoice Item resources within the Acquisitions API. The date for these changes is yet to be determined.
OCLC is adding the ability to add/update/delete local resource invoice items to an invoice. These can be credit, refund, or debit items. A local resource ID that is retrieved from the URL in the UI must be supplied, since there is not a local resource endpoint.
Ship-to and Bill-to Addresses:
OCLC is including additional Ship-to and Bill-to address fields in the order endpoint, allowing libraries to specify both the ship-to and bill-to address.
Ship-to and bill-to addresses are based on addresses within the Institution Registry. Each address has a unique identifier which need to be included in requests to create new invoices and update addresses in existing invoices.
In addition, OCLC will be deprecating the existing shippingAddressId field in a subsequent release.
Please contact OCLC Customer Support with questions about these changes. Libraries can also refer to our OCLC API documentation for more details.
