EDI Partner Profile Configuration part two

This is in continuation with EDI Partner profile configuration part one. In the Post Processing: Permitted Agent tab, you define the individuals to be notified when an error occurs in IDoc processing at a point where the system has identified the partner, but not the message type. The fields on this part of the general parameters view are

Typ: This field identifies the workflow object type of the Agent to be notified in case of error (for example, US for user ID, S for position, or O for organization).

Agent: This field indicates the workflow object (for example, user, position, or organizational unit) used for notification. This object is notified when a corresponding outbound or inbound record is not found for a message that is being sent to or received from this business partner.

"Configuring Workflow," for details on how the system sends workflow notifications for errors. For example, if a person with position ID 12345678 is responsible for handling errors for this business partner, the value of the various fields are S for Typ, 12345678 for Agent, and E for Lang.

Lang : This field identifies the language in use for this agent.

Avoid using a user ID in the Agent field. You should use more abstract object types, such as position, job, or organizational unit. This approach saves you the headache of changing the entry when the user leaves the company or changes jobs. Compared to users, objects such as positions, jobs, and organizational units tend to be more stable.

On the Classification tab, we define the following:

Partner Class : This field is for documentation only and has no intelligence behind it. You use this field to classify your partners. For example, if you want to classify automotive vendors versus railroad vendors, you can enter particular codes representing automotive or railroad.

Archv: This field is also for documentation purposes only. It indicates whether a partner agreement exists. Partner agreement is an EDI term for legal documents that define each partner's responsibilities in a business relationship.

Partner Status: This field makes a partner active or inactive. If a partner is deactivated, no documents are passed to it.

If you maintain partner profiles in the production system, you can use the Partner Status field to indicate that a partner profile is under construction. After the partner profile is complete, you activate it to mark it ready for use.
