Promotion Scenarios

Current Anypoint Partner Manager solutions will continue to be supported in accordance with the Product Support and Maintenance Terms but will not be available for new customers or upgrades. Contact your MuleSoft representative for more information on MuleSoft’s B2B solutions.

This section identifies common scenarios for promoting partners from one environment to another. For more information, see Promoting a Partner.

In each of these scenarios, a trading partner P1 has been created in an environment E1. In the table below, that partner is therefore identified as P1E1.
Another partner P1 has been created in environment E2 (P1E2 below). In some scenarios, P1E2 was created by promoting P1E1 from E1 to E2.

In the last scenario, an additional trading partner P2 has been created in environment E2 (P2E2 below).

P1E1 has previously been promoted to P1E2

Selected

Either selected or not selected

If P1E1 contains any new cerfificates, they will be copied to P1E2

Not Selected

Either selected or not selected

P1E1 will not be copied to P1E2

P1E1 and P1E2 were identical at some point, but a set of identifiers (types and values) has subsequently been configured for AS2, EDI X12 and EDIFACT in P1E1.

Either selected or not selected

Selected

P1E1 identifiers will be copied to P1E2 because the copied data may need information associated with the identifiers (for example Endpoints, or Document Definitions)

Not selected

P1E1 identifiers will be copied to P1E2 because the copied data may need information associated with the identifiers (for example Endpoints, or Document Definitions)

P1E1 and P1E2 were identical at some point, but a set of identifiers (types and values) has subsequently been configured for AS2, EDI X12 and EDIFACT in P1E1 and in addition, E2 has another partner (say, P1E3) that coincidentally has the same identifiers (that is, types & values) as P1E2.

Either selected or not selected

Promotion fails, because having the same set of identifiers (types and values) more than once causes an error.

P1E1 and P1E2 were identical at some point. Subsequently, a set of identifiers (types and values) has been configured for AS2, EDI X12 and EDIFACT in P1E1 and a different set of identifiers (types and values) has been configured for AS2, EDI X12 and EDIFACT in P1E2.

Selected

P1E1 values replace P1E2 values.

Not selected

P1E2 values are not replaced.

P1E1 has a set of identifiers (types and values) for AS2, EDI X12 and EDIFACT.
P2E2, for whatever reason, has exactly the same set of identifiers as P1E1.

Either selected or not selected

Promotion fails, because having the same set of identifiers (types and values) more than once (that is, in both P1E2 and P2E2) causes an error.

Exporting Partners from an Environment

Anypoint Partner Manager (APM) provides the ability to export Partners for backup purposes. These Partners can be imported back into APM later. Please consult the Importing Partners Into A Specific Environment section for more information. Exporting partners involves a series of steps. From the partners list:

  1. Select one or more partners from list. This will cause the "Export" button will be enabled.

  2. Click on the "Export" button. This will pop up a confirmation window listing all the partners that will be exported. You can hit "Dismiss" to cancel the process.

  3. Hit the Export button on the window. This will start the export process and, after completion, it will download a plain-text file with the selected partners and their associated data.

Please not that the file is automatically named. The file name pattern consists of the words "partners_export" and has a current-date suffix, e.g. "partners_export_2016-07-12.txt"

Importing Partners Into A Specific Environment

Anypoint Partner Manager (APM) provides the ability to import [Partners] that were previously backed up using the export functionality. Please consult the [Exporting partners from an environment] section for more information. Only users with the appropriate role or permissions will be able to import partners. The destination environment may already have the same partners that are being imported. If this is the case, data from the partners being imported will override the data of the existing partners. Importing partners involves a series of steps, starting from the partners list screen:

  1. Find the "New Partner" on the top right. Click on the little arrow pointing down next to the button and select "Import". This will pop up the "Import" window. You can hit "Dismiss" to cancel the process.

  2. Select the "target environment", this is the environment into which the partners will be imported. Hit "Next".

  3. Select the file with the partners (which was previoulsy exported) by hitting "Choose File" and browsing through your file system. At this point you can hit "Back" to change the selected target environment, if needed.

  4. Select whether the partners being imported will keep their identifiers when matching existing or previoulsy imported partners on the target environment.

  5. Select whether the partners being imported will keep their AS2 certificates or use the certificates from the matching existing, or previoulsy imported partners on the target environment. Hit import to start the process.

Promoting Partners Into A Specific Environment

Anypoint Partner Manager (APM) provides the ability to "promote", i.e. "copy", [Partners] from one environment to another. Only users with the appropriate role or permissions will be able to promote partners. This process involves a series of steps, starting from the partners list screen:

  1. Select one or more partners to promote from the list.

  2. Hit the "Promote" button. This will pop up the "Promote" window listing the partners to be promoted. You can hit "Dismiss" to cancel the process.

  3. Select the "target environment", this is the environment into which the partners will be promoted. Hit "Next" to go to the next step. Alternatively, you can hit "Back" to change the selected target environment, if needed.

  4. Select whether the partners being promoted will keep their identifiers when matching existing or previoulsy imported partners on the target environment.

  5. Select whether the partners being imported will keep their AS2 certificates or use the certificates from the matching existing, or previoulsy promoted partners on the target environment. Hit import to start the process.
