Your next step is importing the Atlanta and Berlin Company TPs (TP files), as explained under this section. Keeping track of the TPs, where they are sent from and where they are received depends on which company is the current company. See Current Company Viewpoint and TPs.
This sample scenario has the following TPs:
tpBerlin: For the Atlanta Company.
tpAtlanta: For the Berlin Company.
From the initial ePM window, on the upper left side, click Import.
The Import New Trading Partner window appears.
Open B2B Repository then open envAtlanta.
Enter tpBerlin as the name for the new TP.
C:\temp\eXchange\Sample\ebXML\TradingPartners and select the envAtlanta_BerlinSME.xml file and click Import.
On the Explorer tree tpBerlin appears under envAtlanta.
In the upper left side of the ePM window, click Select.
A new window opens, prompting you to select a B2B host and TP.
Open the B2B Repository and envAtlanta and click bhAtlanta1.
Click Search, then click OK.
On the Explorer tree tpBerlin reappears under envAtlanta.
Follow the same steps as those in the Importing TPs, with the following exceptions:
Under B2B Repository open envBerlin.
Select bhBerlin1 and enter tpAtlanta as the TP name.
Import the file envBerlin_AtlantaSME.xml.
Therefore, in terms of the companies, ToPartner means from the Atlanta Company and FromPartner to the Atlanta Company.
Conversely, When you are configuring a TP and pointing it to envBerlin, you must take the viewpoint of that Environment’s company. So, the Berlin Company’s TP is tpAtlanta.
Therefore, in terms of the companies, ToPartner means from the Berlin Company and FromPartner to the Berlin Company.
