    [Label(“Target Group Desc”)] element TGDesc: MEDIUM_Description;

    node members [0,n]


    [Label(“Customer”)] element CustID: ID;

    var tgSrvReq : TargetGroup1.MaintainBundle.Request;

    var tgSrvReqItem : TargetGroup1.MaintainBundle.Request.TargetGroupBundleMaintainRequest_sync.TargetGroup;

    var tgSrvReqMember: TargetGroup1.MaintainBundle.Request.TargetGroupBundleMaintainRequest_sync.TargetGroup.Member;

    tgSrvReqItem.Description = this.TGDesc.content;

    //This is for Target Group Create

    tgSrvReqItem.actionCode = “01”;

    //…Handle Update case also

    foreach ( var itm in this.members)


    var Cust = Customer.Retrieve(itm.CustID);

    tgSrvReqMember.CustomerUUID = Cust.UUID;



    //Handle Contact ID to UUID conversion also

    //Handle Employee ID to UUID conversion also



    var response = Library::TargetGroup1.MaintainBundle(tgSrvReq,“”,“TargetGroup1”);

      Hi Pradeep,


      Thanks for sharing this. We have a similar requirement to create invoice schedule on creation of outbound delivery. I tried using the 'Managesalesorder' webservice for this in the 'Release' event of Outbound delivery. But that doesn't seem to allow creation of invoice schedule for the Sales Order.

      Can you help me with it?

      Hi Pradeep,

      At 6, I can't "Check Connection", it raise as below:

      The "Service URL", it has some character which I feel unnecessary.

      Could you help me with it? Thanks a lot.

      Best Regards,

      Benny Huang
