Direct Access Orders Integration Process


DA 9.1 Orders Integration Process is comprised of Reserve Orders, Separation Orders, and Applicant Orders. This Orders Integration Process is ran nightly: 2100 - Reserve Orders, 2130 - Separation Orders, and 2145 - Applicant Orders. These processes will grab all orders in an "Enroute" status and put them in a "Finished" status for any orders when the end date is current date or date prior to current date. This process used to run early morning which prevented SPOs from properly closing the orders, not allowing SPOs to make amendments, or to enter leave sold.

We also run this process manually during each pay cycle. It will be ran the day after each SPO Data Entry/Approval Cutoff Date. This process will grab all orders with an end date through the end of the pay cycle and put them in a "Finished" status.
