Basic Trading Partner Profile

The basic trading partner profile option provides contact information about your trading partner and sets up communication properties to exchange documents with your trading partners.

Some businesses require a simplified method for entering trading partner data quickly.

When a basic profile is created, these records are created automatically and assigned default record names:

Record Type Record Function
Transport Describes the document delivery protocol
Document Exchange Describes properties of documents and messages between trading partners
Delivery Channel Links a document exchange record and a transport record
Packaging Describes the organization of a document and its contents
Profile Links a delivery channel record and a packaging record to a business process
