What type of file is it (EDI/HL7/Xustom XML/Custom Flat etc..)?
My understanding on inbound file processing is, B2B uses file name to identify a particular trading partner.No, it is not the case always. Directory name (which is being polled by B2B) can also be used to identify the TP name and other info. In case of EDI/HL7, corresponding document identifiers can be used to identify the TP's, so filename becomes irrelevant in this case.
My understanding on the required info for b2B to identify trading partner is: %TO_PARTY%_%FROM_PARTY%_%DOCTYPE_NAME%_%DOCTYPE_REVISION%.This is for outbound. As I mentioned above, filename may or may not be used to identify all four points in case of inbound.
Thanks Anuj. You saved our day again.
We are using EDi-X12 and we are able to invoke trading partner based on the information in inbound file content now with file name as anything. It looks like B2B uses ISA-06 (Interchange Sender ID) and GS-08(Version Identifier Code) to identify a TP. We have only one host TP(To TP) configured. Please correct me if we should be worried about elements other than ISA-06 and GS-08 for TP identification.
B2B first tries to identify TP's using Interchange Sender ID (ISA06) and Interchange Receiver ID (ISA08). If it fails to identify TP's using interchange id's then it tries to identify TP's using Application Sender's Code (GS02) and Application Receiver's Code (GS03).
GS08 (Version / Release / Industry Identifier Code) is used to identify the version of the EDI payload.
