Step 7: Configure a Send Port to Send the Acknowledgment to Your Trading Partner

[Unless specifically noted, the content in this topic applies to BizTalk Server 2013 and 2013 R2.]

Step 7 of 9

In this step you configure a send port to send the 997 acknowledgment message that is generated by BizTalk Server to the Fabrikam toTHEM_997 folder.

You must be logged on as a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group.

  1. In the BizTalk Server Administration Console, right-click Send Ports, point to New, and then click Static One-way Send Port.

  2. In the Send Port Properties dialog box, do the following:


    Use this To do this


    Enter toTHEM_997.


    Select FILE.


    Click Configure.

    The transport type of the send port is FILE because the 997 is a flat file to be delivered into a folder.

  3. In the FILE Transport Properties dialog box, do the following and then click OK:


    Use this To do this

    Destination folder

    Click Browse, and in the Browse For Folder dialog box, move to drive:\Program Files\Microsoft BizTalk Server 2013 R2\SDK\EDI Interface Developer Tutorial\ProcessEDI_TestLocations\ Scenario A\toTHEM_997.

    File name

    Enter %MessageID%.txt, and then click OK.

    The value set for the File name property ensures that the output file will have a .txt extension.

  4. In the Send Port Properties dialog box, for Send Pipeline, select EdiSend.

    The send pipeline used to send EDI interchanges, except for those delivered over the AS2 transport, is the EdiSend pipeline. (The AS2EdiSend send pipeline is used to send EDI interchanges delivered over the AS2 transport.)

  5. In the console tree, click Filters, and then do the following:


    Use this To do this


    Select BTS.MessageType.


    Select ==.


    Enter http://schemas.microsoft.com/Edi/X12#X12_997_Root.

    The filter ensures that the send port will pick up messages with the 997 message type.

  6. Click OK.

  7. In the BizTalk Server Administration Console, click Send Ports. Right-click toTHEM_997, and then click Start to enlist and start the port.

  8. In the BizTalk Server Administration Console, in the console tree, click Platform Settings, and then click Host Instances. In the Host Instances pane, click BizTalkServerApplication, and then click Restart.

You create an agreement between the two trading partners, as described in Step 8: Configure the Trading Partner Agreement between the Parties.
