IBX xCBL 3.5 Order specification

IBX customers generate purchase orders using IBX eProcurement, IBX eOrder or any other eProcurement solution connected to the IBX Business Network. Orders are routed as XML files via the IBX Connect platform to reach suppliers in various formats. IBX Connect's canonical format is based on xCBL 3.5. The best way to describe IBX' canonical order format is with help of an XML schema definition (XSD) file. This is both available for download and documented in detail below.

IBX xCBL 3.5 Order

IBX` canonical order format is a slightly modified version of the standard xCBL 3.5 order 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.
