Batch calls ($batch) is a way to send multiple requests to IFS with only one http request. Currently the connector supports two batch operations.

  • One that creates a 'parent' entity along with one or many related 'child' rows. ('Batch Create AssistantDocIssueSet and add owned collections' in image below)

  • One that create multiple 'child' rows to an already existing 'parent' entity ('Batch Add to AssistantEdmFileReferenceArray' in image below)

The benefit with a $batch call is in part performance, but also that it is an all or nothing operation. If the 'parent' can be created, but there are issues with one of the 'child' entities - nothing is created.
