Additional vendor data from Extender included in Service Based Architecture call?

Kevin asked 7 years ago
Hi, I\’m brand new to this, so hopefully my question makes sense.  I am working on an application that will pull vendors in from GP, and would like to use Extender to add additional vendor properties in GP, such as whether a specific vendor is a railroad company, a trucking company, a chemical supply company, etc.  If I use Extender to add those checkboxes in GP 2015, will it be possible to pull those additional fields when I make the Service Based Architecture call to retrieve all vendors?

Out of the box, no, because the GP service objects don’t know anything about the extender data.
But with Service Builder (not released yet – no timeframe when it will be) you should be able to create your own ServiceVendorWithExtenderData (or whatever you call it) method that will return whatever you like.
