The Dell Boomi AtomSphere provides users with the ability to create and configure trading partners forEDI transactions. Users can create trading partners to be used with the X12 Interchange format.

The X12 Interchange Format is a standard used for the sending and receiving ofEDI files, it allows us to define different pieces of information about the file and communicate information about what is expected of the file between the respective trading partners. It uses the ISA and GS segment definition headers within sentEDImessages to set this information.

This post will cover how to create a basic X12 Trading Partner and the different configuration options available for them.

First we can create our trading partner by creating a new component and selecting “Trading Partner”, we can configure items such as the name and whether or not this is our company or a trading partner we’re communicating with, we also want to make sure that “X12” is selected as the Standard:

When we expand “Basic X12 Options” we will see a number of settings that correspond to how our EDI File should be read:

Functional Acknowledgement Options Tells us whether a functional acknowledgment will be generated. Document Envelope Options Specifies how transaction sets will be grouped within the outbound interchange, there are three possible configurations for this: Group By Interchange Single interchange is made and can have one or more functional group. Group By Functional Group All sets of the same message type are grouped together. Group By Transaction Set Each transaction set has its own interchange. Element Delimiter Allows us to set the delimiter used between elements within the segments

Segment Termination Character Used to set the character which denotes the end of a segment. (i.e. ~) Filter Functional Acknowledgements If checked, inbound interchanges will not pass 997 acknowledgments.
