10. Running an Orchestration, My Learning Experience with Orchestrator
by Lisa Tran (Category: Technical--Orchestrator)

What I love about this article is that it is written by a user who wants to share her real life learning experiences while actually getting her first orchestrations into production. Lisa is a very strong JDE user with exceptional experience, and I can assure you that if she has encountered these learning experiences, other users will too. She offers some great tips on working with your own variables, security records, data conversion (I always thought that field was numeric!), working with the B98ORCH Business Function, the need to restart the AIS server instance.
