Endpoints define the transport protocol configurations necessary to receive or send messages with external trading partners or internal backend applications.
Partner Manager uses endpoints to:
Receive transmissions from partners
Receive application messages from the backend system
Specify the final destination of the message
Define transport protocols
Specify where to send acknowledgments
Partner Manager enables you to assign the host or a particular partner as the owner of endpoints that are partner-facing (receive or send) to control the usage of endpoints within inbound and outbound message flows.
Endpoints owned by the host are available for selection in message flows for any trading partners. Endpoints owned by a specific trading partner are available for selection in message flows created for that partner only.
AnyPoint Partner Manager provides the following types of endpoints:
Receive transmissions from your trading partners.
These endpoints are resources your organization exposes to your trading partners.
Send transmissions to your trading partners
Your organization also has internal endpoints to which it routes messages from the trading partners. The messages routed to the target endpoint are typically validated and transformed before they are routed to the configured target endpoint.
