Post cXML ASN to Coupa

POST ASNs to /user/asn_headers using the supplier's Invoicing cXML credentials.


  1. Decide on the supplier you want to test and make sure the supplier's record, under Invoicing, the suppliers credentials are populated since they're also used for cXML ASNs.
  2. Create an order within Coupa for the supplier by submitting a req and approving it.
  3. Modify the sample payload (below) so it's updated with the proper supplier credentials (from the supplier record, above) and order details (from the Orders tab).
  4. Use your favorite REST API client to POST your modified payload the following URL: https://{customer_instance_name}/cxml/ship_notice_request.
  5. Within Coupa, to go Spend History > ASNs at https://{customer_instance_name}/user/asn_headers and make sure that the <ShipmentIdentifier> from the payload is listed in the Tracking # column.

Sample Payload

You'll need to update this example cXML with the details of your supplier and order before posting.
