How to use a File Adapter in EBI, to Keep a Copy of your Outbound EDI data

Although we have a copy of outbound data stored in EXTOL Business Integrator, and possibly EXTOL Secure; it might be re-assuring to know we have the data stored elsewhere.

In our example, we will save a copy of our EDI (x12/EDIFACT) data. For communications we will be sending the data via EXTOL Secure.

Example: Send outbound 856 and keep a copy of it

  • Execute outbound 856 Application Analysis Business Process Script
  • Respective Outbound Collaboration is executed with a Single Transformation Task.
  • After Single Transformation is executed we write-out a copy of 856 to pre-designated location defined by the file write adapter.
  • Note: Data written out by file write adapter will consist of ST/SE.
