After you have selected the Source application, the next step in creating a Template is to define the Destination application. A Destination application is an application from where data is to be transferred from the Source application. After defining the Destination application, you must choose an Action.

An Action is performed at the destination. For example, in an FTP Destination application, if you choose Create File as an action, then a file will be generated at the destination.

To select and configure the Destination application of the Template:

  1. Select the Destination application and click Next

  2. The next screen differs depending on the chosen application. 

  3. Select the action and click Next. This screen appears only for FTP application. 

  4. Skip the next step(s) as these steps are defined by the Partner while creating a Transaction using this Template.


  5. Click Next to define the routing. This screen appears if you have selected Content Based Routing check box while defining EDI settings.
  6. Provide the details in the fields. 

  7. Click Next to archive data. Either you can define this step or allow your Partner to define this step by clicking Partner will define this step check box. The Partner will define this step while creating a Transaction using this Template.
  8. If you are defining this step then click Create Archive File check box. This option will create an archive of the generated output file in the Archive folder for future access.

    1. Type the folder name to archive the data in the Archive Folder Name. You need to set the archival folder path in the abpm.solution.b2b.archive.basepath property (Administer > Update System Properties > Solution Properties > EDI Solution Properties > Default B2B Archiving Policy). The Transaction will create an archive of the generated output files in the specified folder and location.  

    2. Click Auto Organised Archive Folder Based On Date check box to create folders in the format YYYY/MM/DD to the folder specified in the Archive Folder Name.
    3. Click Add Archive File Time Stamp check box to add a time stamp to the archive files. On clicking the check box, Time Stamp Format field appears. Select the date and time format from the drop-down lists.  

  9. Click Next to define the mapping. This screen appears only if you have selected I will define option in the data format.    

  10. In the Documentation URL, provide the URL that contains the description of the Template.

  11. Click Save & Exit to save the Template.
