After you have set up and activated your TPs, you must configure them for ebXML and your current system. Each set of specific configurations you assign to a TP make up its profile. TP configuration parameters include the following settings:
Properties: Under this tab, you supply values for the necessary eXchange parameters not ebXML-specific, but needed by eXchange. These parameters are basic eXchange properties and enable the essential eXchange operation of its Projects.
Under other tabs, you find parameters that allow you to supply values for the following types of eXchange and ebXML Protocol Manager-specific configuration settings that define:
Delivery Channels: Under this subtab, you supply XDC values for the ToPartner and FromPartner transport attributes, as well as the ToPartner and FromPartner packaging attributes.
Internal Delivery Channels: Under this subtab, you supply values for the ToPartner and FromPartner transport attributes for each IDC.
Messaging Actions: Under this tab, you supply values for each of the messaging actions (inbound and outbound).
The ePM user interface refers to XDCs under tabs and headings named Delivery Channels .
Importing and Configuring TPs in ePM explains a sample scenario with specific examples of how to configure parameters for an individual TP using ePM.
After you have configured each TP, you must activate it then check for its successful activation. See TP Activation for details.
The rest of this chapter explains in detail how to configure each ePM parameter setting for ebXML Protocol Manager’s TPs, summarized under the types shown in the previous list. For more information, including information on the various tabs/subtabs, what they contain, and how to navigate through them, see the eXchange Integrator User’s Guide.
