Populate the Connect:Direct Secure Plus Parameters File

To communicate with a trading partner using Connect:Direct® Secure Plus, you define a node record for that partner in both the Connect:Direct network map and the Connect:Direct Secure Plus parameters file. To set up the Connect:Direct Secure Plus environment, you can populate the Connect:Direct Secure Plus parameters file from entries defined in an existing network map.

When you populate the parameters file from the network map, a record is automatically created in the parameters file for each node entry in the network map. Initially, Connect:Direct Secure Plus is disabled for each of the records created. You configure the local node record to activate Connect:Direct Secure Plus for all nodes in the parameters file.

  1. From the Secure+ Admin Tool Main Window, click File > Sync with Netmap. The Available Netmaps dialog box is displayed.
  2. Select the netmap to open and click Sync. The Select Netmap Entries to Add dialog box is displayed.
  3. Click Add All. The Select Parameters File Entries to Delete dialog box is displayed.
  4. Click Skip to close the parameters file without deleting any entries.
    The Connect:Direct Secure Plus parameters file is populated and the Secure+ Admin Tool Main Window displays remote node records in the parameters file including the records you added from the network map.
