Setting up EBICS integration with Sterling File Gateway

Before you can use Sterling File Gateway to route files to or from EBICS Partners/Subscribers, you must set up EBICS integration with Sterling File Gateway.

To set up EBICS integration with Sterling File Gateway:

  1. From Sterling File Gateway, select Tools > B2B Console.
  2. From the Sterling B2B Integrator Admin menu, select Deployment > Services > Configuration to enable the scheduler that will be used by the EBICS Server service for transaction housekeeping.
  3. Select EBICS > Subscription Manager.
  4. Select to create the following EBICS resources:
    • Bank
    • Partner
    • User
    • Offer
    • Contract
    • Permissions
  5. Repeat Step 4 for as many partners as you want to create.
  6. Close the Sterling B2B Integrator window, but do not log out, to return to Sterling File Gateway.
  7. From Sterling File Gateway, select Participants > Groups.
  8. Select Add Partners and associate EBICS Partners/Subscribers with the Sterling File Gateway All Partners group.
    Note: You may see an error message that the EBICS partner does not have an associated User Account. This does not affect the association with the group.
  9. Select Routes > Templates to set up a routing channel template to use for routing files to or from EBICS Partners/Subscribers. You must define a routing channel template using the UserID as a provisioning fact and then reference the UserID provisioning fact in the mailbox path for the producer, consumer, or both, depending on how the template will be used.
    Note: By adding the provisioning fact in the template, you ensure that mailbox path structures match what was previously set up during EBICS Partner/Subscriber creation. If a mailbox path structure other than /User/Partner/Inbox or /User/Partner/Outbox was specified, the template should match that structure.
  10. Select Routes > Channels to set up routing channels to use for routing files between EBICS Partners/Subscribers.
  11. Test the setup by accessing an EBICS client, log in as the EBICS Partner/Subscriber, and send an EBICS order.
  12. Select Routes > Activity.
  13. Select the EBICS Partner/Subscriber from the Producer menu.
  14. Click Find.
  15. Look for the transfer initiated in Step 10 and select the row to view details.
  16. Select the message ID hyperlink to view the route details and link to dataflows and communication sessions in the B2B Console.
