This method allows you to assign a new manifest group code to the consignment(s) associated with an existing order number, in readiness for manifesting (e.g. via createManifest or createManifestForFutureDespatch).


It is assumed that you have worked through Creating your first Request to a Service and are familiar with the Properties needed to Call or Create a Consignment.

How to submit a request

Proceed as follows:

  1. If you have not already done so, open a new project using the WSDL ConsignmentService.xml.

  2. Create a new request under scanOrderToManifestGroup,

  3. Enter the authorisation for the request.

  4. Specify the following:

    1. The orderNumber (which can be associated with more than one consignment).

    2. The manifest group code.

  5. Click Arrow.png to submit the request.

Example Request

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:ser="urn:DeliveryManager/services">
      <ser:scanOrderToManifestGroup soapenv:encodingStyle="">
         <orderNumber xsi:type="soapenc:string" xmlns:soapenc="">T4RE345A</orderNumber>
         <manifestGroupCode xsi:type="soapenc:string" xmlns:soapenc="">TRUCK10</manifestGroupCode>

If the input is valid, then the carton is assigned to the newly created manifest group, and true is returned, as in the example below.

Example Response

<soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="" xmlns:xsd="" xmlns:xsi="">
      <ns1:scanOrderToManifestGroupResponse soapenv:encodingStyle="" xmlns:ns1="urn:DeliveryManager/services">
         <scanOrderToManifestGroupReturn xsi:type="xsd:boolean">true</scanOrderToManifestGroupReturn>

Next Steps

If you wish to confirm the assignment, then, in the GUI, find a consignment associated with the order and go to the bottom left of the Advanced tab. Here, you can verify that the Manifest Group Code has been added, e.g.
