Set up the Payload Storage API for Partner Manager

Prior to creating your first trading partner and message flow, you need to configure your Payload Storage API under the Host organization in Partner Manager. Anypoint Partner Manager enables you to connect your own storage solution (such as a database, Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, and so on) to store the transmission content such as incoming and outgoing B2B message payloads.

To store this content, you must implement an API that provides Anypoint Partner Manager with a standardized way to connect to your unique storage.

Follow these steps to set up the Payload Storage API.

  1. Download these APIs from Anypoint Exchange:

    Partner Manager Content Storage API - S3 Template (sample implementation template)

  2. Implement the API to connect with your choice of storage location (S3, Database, File System, and so on).

  3. Deploy the API on a runtime that can access the storage solution.

  4. Make a note of the API URL and configurations:

    • Host, port, and path connection

    • Connection Idle and Response timeouts

    • Authentication types: None, API Key, Basic, Client Credentials, and OAuth Token

    • Certificate (.PEM format) and connection types

    • Decide whether users can download the payload from the transmissions. You can manage your payload storage later.

      You’ll need this information while associating Anypoint Partner Manager to your Payload Storage API. Your payload storage API must be accessible over the internet via HTTPS. Ensure that the appropriate authentication mechanisms have been implemented to make this happen.

  5. Open Anypoint Partner Manager and locate your organization’s profile (host) page from the left navigation.

  6. Select the Payload storage section and configure the path to your storage.

  7. If you want to view (or have your users view) the raw payloads of the files you receive or send, select Allow users to download payloads while configuring your payload storage API.

You are ready to set up message flows between you and your trading partners.
