X12 EDI Connector 2.6 - Mule 4

Support Category: Premium

Anypoint Connector for X12 EDI (X12 EDI Connector) enables you to convert X12 messages to and from DataWeave-compatible representations by using lists and maps. All of the schema definitions you need for supported X12 standard transaction sets are included. For complete information about schemas, see X12 EDI Schema Language Reference.

Many Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) document versions are also supported, as listed separately in the Supported HIPAA Versions. For more information about HIPAA usage, refer to Connector HIPAA Standards.

Prerequisites

To use this connector, you must be familiar with:

  • Anypoint Connectors

  • Mule runtime engine (Mule)

  • Elements and global elements in a Mule flow

  • Creating a Mule app using Anypoint Studio (Studio)

To use X12 EDI connector, you must have:

  • Purchased a MuleSoft license for Anypoint B2B

  • Anypoint Studio 7.0 or later

X12 EDI Connector supports files of up to 15 MB in size, and the memory requirement is approximately 40 to 1. For example, a 1 MB file requires up to 40 MB of memory to process, so it’s important to consider this memory requirement in conjunction with your Transactions Per Second (TPS) needs for large X12 files. This is not an exact figure; the value varies according to the complexity of the mapping instructions.
