Configure Sterling B2B Integrator to transfer files with WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition

There are several tasks that you must complete to configure Sterling B2B Integrator to transfer files with WebSphere® MQ File Transfer Edition. These tasks involve creating or configuring services and adapters, creating or identifying users, mapping WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition users to Sterling B2B Integrator users. Before you do these tasks you work with the WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition administrator to determine what files will be transferred and what till be done with the files. You use this information when you configure Sterling B2B Integrator.

The list of tasks that you do to configure Sterling B2B Integrator to work with WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition includes:

  1. Create or configure an existing Sterling B2B Integrator Adapter Container. You only have to do this once.
  2. Create or identify existing Sterling B2B Integrator user accounts, mailboxes, virtual roots, and permissions to use in the transfers.
  3. Create an FTP Server Adapter instance for WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition integration.
  4. Create or modify an existing WMQFTE User Map.
  5. Create a WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Agent Adapter instance.
  6. Create a WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Create Transfer Service instance. If you are not going to generate transfer requests (inbound or outbound) from business processes, you do not need to do this step.

It is recommended that you create one FTP Server Adapter and use it for all of the WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition transfers.

Because WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition agents are both source and destination agents, you can use one WebSphere MQ File Transfer Edition Agent Adapter for all transfers on your system.
