IBX xCBL 3.5 Invoice specification

Customers integrated to the IBX Connect platform receive electronic invoices from multiple suppliers through one channel. It doesn´t matter how the supplier is set up to generate eInvoices - sending XML files the integrated way, using IBX Virtual Printer or IBX Supplier Order Management. The canonical IBX Invoice format is based on xCBL 3.5. This is the base for all inbound and outbound mappings from/to other formats than xCBL 3.5.

IBX xCBL 3.5 Invoice

The canonical IBX Invoice format is a slightly modified version of the standard xCBL 3.5 Invoice reflecting common Procure-To-Pay services provided by the IBX Business Network. Not all xCBL elements are supported and some originally optional fields are mandatory. Customer specific content and hence usage of particular fields can occur depending on the customer's setup and needs. The IBX canonical Invoice format is described with help of an XML schema definition (XSD) file. This is both available for download and documented in detail below.
