Trading Profile Management

A trading profile is a collection of records that describe the technology, business capabilities, and communication capabilities of a trading partner that engage in e-business with other trading partners.

Sterling B2B Integrator uses trading profiles to simplify the configuration of data related to your trading partners.

Sterling B2B Integrator uses the trading profile data to link the trading partner with the business process models you create to handle that partner's documents. The profile describes the partner's role in those business processes as a producer of messages, consumer of messages, or both.

Trading profile settings determine which documents are allowed into or out of Sterling B2B Integrator.

In the Sterling B2B Integrator interface, creating trading profiles is a simple process. The system uses wizard screens to guide you through the process of entering the required information.
