Participant and organization modeling structure

Before you use the sample data to test your WebSphere Commerce integration with Sterling Order Management, review the preconfigured participant and organization modeling structure to determine whether the structure meets your particular business needs.

If the provided modeling structure meets your business needs, use the sample configuration to test your integration. However, if the modeling structure does not meet your business needs exactly, customize the sample data before you test your integration.

The sample data provides two preconfigured enterprises, Aurora-Corp and Aurora. These enterprises control and enforce business rules and document flow of all subsidiaries, which include 4 warehouses and 10 stores. Aurora is a seller organization and a pricing organization. It maintains its own inventory and is the inventory organization for Aurora-Corp. Aurora defines seller attributes, payment rules, and pricing rules for the sample Aurora stores.

Aurora-Corp is the catalog organization of Aurora. Both Aurora-Corp and Aurora map to the WebSphere Commerce sample extended site store, such as AuroraESite.

Mappings between the sample data and the WebSphere Commerce sample extended site store are defined in <INSTALL_DIR>/properties/AuroraValueMaps.xml.sample.

Warehouses map to the WebSphere Commerce sample FFMCENTERS. Stores map to the WebSphere Commerce sample stores. Table 1 shows the warehouse mappings and Table 2 shows the store mappings.
Note: You can map to existing FFMCENTERS or use WebSphere Commerce Accelerator to manually create your own ffmcenter, such as Aurora Warehouse - West.
