Configuration Prerequisites

You must configure the prerequisites that access Sterling B2B Integrator before using EBICS Client.

  1. Check in the public and private part of the certificates into the System and Trusted store of Sterling B2B Integrator. Check in the required Certificate Authority (CA) certificates into the CA store of Sterling B2B Integrator or create a self-signed certificate.
    The following types of certificates are used for configuring a user:
    • Identification and authentication
    • Encryption
    • Signing
  2. From the Identities menu of Sterling B2B Integrator, create an identity record for your organization, indicating your organization as the base identity.
    This identity name should correspond to the EBICS partner name.
  3. From the User Accounts menu of Sterling B2B Integrator, create a User Account and assign permissions to the user.
    The user name should correspond to the EBICS user name.
  4. Configure an adapter (such as File system adapter, HTTP(S) adapter, SFTP adapter, FTP(S) adapter) in Sterling B2B Integrator, that enables you to send and receive files and invokes the EBClientOrderPreProcess business process. For example, configure a File System Adapter to invoke the EBClientOrderPreProcess business process.
  5. Configure the following mailboxes and associate them with each user.
    • EBClientOrderMetadata (preconfigured)
    • Download (Inbox)
    • Upload (Outbox)
  6. Verify that the EBClientMailboxArrivedMessage business process is associated with the EBClientOrderMetadata Mailbox. The automatic routing rule triggers the business process to perform automated functions, such as notifying an interested party about an incoming message in the mailbox.
    Note: It is recommended that you do not modify the existing configuration for EBICS Client routing rules. Modifying the routing rule configuration may create duplicate subsets and duplicate orders for an order submission.
  7. Ensure that the MailboxEvaluateAllAutomaticRulesSubMin Schedule is enabled.
