Endpoints

An endpoint is the entry point to a service, a process, or a queue or topic destination in service-oriented architecture. In APM, an endpoint defines the protocol, address, and other details specific to an exchange of messages between partners.

Get Started

  1. Start APM. The Transaction Monitoring Page appears.

  2. In the left-hand navigation pane, click Partner Configuration. The Partner Configuration Page appears.

    To edit or add settings for your company, in the Name table, click the name of your company.

    To edit or add settings for an existing trading partner, in the Name table, click the name of the partner.

  1. In the CONFIGURATION section of the left-hand navigation pane on the Company Information Page, click Endpoints.

    The Endpoints Page appears.

Edit an Existing Endpoint

  1. On the Endpoints Page, in the Name column, click the endpoint you want to edit.

    The Endpoint Page appears. The settings that appear depend on the values for Protocol and Type.

  1. To edit the Endpoint Name, Protocol, or Type, go to Choose Endpoint Name, Protocol, and Type.

    To edit settings specific to the existing Name, Protocol, and Type, go to the appropriate Protocol-Type combination in Protocol/Type-Specific Endpoint Settings.

Add a New Endpoint

  1. On the Endpoints Page, click New.

    The Endpoint Page appears.

  1. Go to Choose Endpoint Name, Protocol, and Type.

    If you are working with other partners, you can change an existing endpoint, but you cannot add a new endpoint.

Choose Endpoint Name, Protocol and Type

  1. On the Endpoint Page, enter the appropriate settings.

    When you have entered settings for Name, Protocol and Type, the Endpoint Page becomes the Endpoint Page.

    For information about Protocol- and Type-specific settings, go to the corresponding section in To Enter Protocol/Type-Specific Endpoint Settings.

If you choose Custom, a Custom content type box appears that accepts an alphanumeric string. Be sure that the string is known to your trading partner.
Valid values
  • 'application/edi-x12'

  • 'application/edi-consent'

  • 'Custom'

Default
  • 'application/edi-x12'

Digest Algorithm

MIC algorithm for use in signing the returned receipt

Required?

No

Valid values

  • 'MD5'

Default
  • 'SHA1'

Fallback Digest Algorithm

Digest algorithm the receiver uses to create the MIC and signature

Required?

No

Valid values
  • 'None'

  • 'SHA1'

  • 'MD5'

Default

'None'

Subject

Subject of the message being sent

Required?

No

Valid values

Alphanumeric

Default

AS2 Message

Filename

Name of file to send

Required

No

Valid values

Alphanumeric

Default

'File name'

Encoding

Type of encoding to use when sending a message with AS2

Required

Yes

Default

Binary

Valid values
  • Binary
    A method of encoding in which a message is represented using a combination of 0s and 1s.

  • 7-bit

    Data that is all represented as relatively short lines with 998 bytes or less between CRLF line separation sequences. No bytes with decimal values greater than 127 are allowed and neither are NULLs (bytes with decimal value 0). CR (decimal value 13) and LF (decimal value 10) bytes only occur as part of CRLF line separation sequences.

  • 8-bit

    Data that is all represented as relatively short lines with 998 bytes or less between CRLF line separation sequences, but bytes with decimal values greater than 127 may be used. As with "7bit data" CR and LF bytes only occur as part of CRLF line separation sequences and no NULLs are allowed.

  • Quoted-Printable

    Intended to represent data that largely consists of bytes that correspond to printable characters in the US-ASCII character set. It encodes the data in such a way that the resulting bytes are unlikely to be modified by mail transport. If the data being encoded are mostly US-ASCII text, the encoded form of the data remains largely recognizable by humans. A body which is entirely US-ASCII may also be encoded in Quoted-Printable to ensure the integrity of the data should the message pass through a character-translating, and/or line-wrapping gateway.

Encryption Algorithm

3DES is an encryption that uses 3 different keys, or encryptions, to encrypt the messages. No other choices are available at this time.

Checkbox options:

Compress

Compresses message-size

Message Encrypted

Adds an encryption wrapper around the document, signature, and compression payloads

Message Signed

Adds a signature wrapper around the document payload

MDN Signed

Ensures trading partner validation and security

MDN Async

Allows AS2 MDNs to be returned to the AS2 message sender’s server at a later time. Typically used when large files are involved, or when a trading partner’s AS2 server has poor Internet service. If this checkbox is selected the MDN Async URL box appears.

MDN Async URL

An Async Message Disposal Notification (MDN) returns the MDN to this URL at a later time for files sent if an MDN is required. If you are using Async MDN, enter the URL and port to which it should be sent.

Required

No

Valid values

Alphanumeric

Default

None

MDN Required::

An Async MDN will return the MDN to the URL at a later time for files sent if an MDN is required. If you are using Async MDN, enter the URL and port to which it should be sent.

If this checkbox is selected, the Require Receipt for Unsupported Digest Algorithm and Require Receipt for Unsupported Signature Format checkboxes appear.
