    999 generation for errors in ISA/GS envelopes

    Kathar

      Hi All,

      We are testing 999 functionality; 999 is not generated if there is any error in the envelopes(like incorrect Group count). How to enable it? Or do we have to go for TA1 to get this functionality?

       

      This is for X12 HIPAA transaction.

       

      Thanks,

      Kathar

          Hi Kathar,

           

          TA1 covers the errors at interchange level whereas 999 covers the errors at group/transaction level. So if TA1 is not requested and incoming message has issues at interchange layer then no ack might be sent. For all group/transaction level errors, 999 must be sent. Can you please provide the details of your tests and results?

           

          Regards,

            Hi Anuj,

            Here is the test results:

             

            1. Transaction set errors(Incorrect segment count) - B2B generated 999

            2. Group(incorrect transaction set count)/interchange level errors(interchange control number mismatch) - B2B did not generate 999

             

            We don't have TA1 support since we use 11.1.1.6.0 version. It looks like we have to manually alert our TPs for envelope error information. Is there any other way to handle this? is there specific error code generated for ISA/GS errors?

             

            Thanks,

            Kathar

              Hi Kathar,

               

              For all validation errors, same error code is generated. As I mentioned earlier, for group level errors 999 should be generated. If it is not working then it may be an issue with config or a bug with the product. Please log a SR with support for this.

               

              For interchange level errors, you may rely on error message or error description until you upgrade to PS6 (11.1.1.7)

                Thanks Anuj, We are planning to upgrade our system to 11.1.1.7 to get support for TA1 that will solve Interchange header error notifications; After that, we will test for Group header error notifications. If group error-999 scenario will not work after upgrade also, we are planning to raise SR.
