Setting up the connection and mapping brands
Parent Brand Entry
To access the Flash configuration in OASIS, Select manufacturers, then open the "Eaton" entry. This MUST be set up as a "Parent(shown)" entry. Check the "Merge Brands" check box. If the specialization is not already set to "Flash", then select "Flash" in the drop down list - otherwise press the "Configure Specialization" link:
When the configure link is pressed the Flash configuration window will appear.
First, obtain the IP address or the name of the Flash server. Then create a "URL" from the server information as shown below:
FOR CANADA AGENCIES ONLY
Users should create a Manufacturer entry for each child brand. Select Eaton as the parent and click the "Merge Brands" check boxes for all brands that can be sent together in a single order.
"Eaton Core" Manufacturers
The following Eaton manufacturers are part of the core Eaton lines. They should each have their own manufacturer entry in Oasis (or one entry with two brands mapped to it, as with Halo (HALO-Rec and Halo-Trac). These should have Eaton set as the parent company and have the "Merge Brands" box checked.
Select "Eaton" in the field just below the URL (click the "..." button). Then under Brands map ONLY ONE brand to the MFG entry. Eaton has recently requested that each brand be mapped 1 for 1. Do not select more than one brand to be mapped to that MFG entry in OASIS.
