Error description

  • Document Manager Service provides
    capability to customers to Resend individual transactions in
    the document to trading partners. However we are not able to
    achieve this in right way for EDI documents. Our current
    approach is as follows for
    ANSI X12 standard:
    1. Capture ISA and GS segments and save to database.
    2. Using Document Extraction Service, extract ST ... SE
    from the  original document For each ST...SE append ISA and GS
    at the top and construct GE and IEA at the end.
    
    This approach does not give us updated control numbers, date
    etc... in the newly generated file.
    
    We are looking for following functionality:
    
    In Outbound EDI Flow:
    1. When we send a flat file through EDI Encoder/EDI Enveloping
    service, Sterling B2B Integrator should perform translation
    and enveloping.
    
    2. When we send an EDI transaction (content inside one ST-SE),
    Sterling B2B Integrator should perform only "Enveloping." We
    want to achieve this with same set of Outbound
    Envelopes. If there is a way to override the map name, just
    before the enveloping service it would serve the
    purpose here.
    
    As we have observed, this is possible in Gentran NT and
    customer is expecting similar behavior through Sterling B2B
    Integrator as well.
    

Local fix

  • No workaround
    

Problem summary

  • Users affected:
    Document Manager service users
    
    Problem description:
    Want a feature to override mapname or a parameter override to
    suppress translation from process data before a document is
    enveloped.
    
    
    Platforms Affected:
    All
    

Problem conclusion

  • Resolution Summary:
    A new EnvelopeParm has been added (Out_MapName) that can be
    used as an override to not translate the outbound data:
    <assign name="Assign"
    to="/ProcessData/EnvelopeParms/Out_MapName">none</assign>
    
    or change the name of the translation map:
    <assign name="Assign"
    to="/ProcessData/EnvelopeParms/Out_MapName">pos_to_436</assign>
