Adding an AS2 service
|Top Previous Next|
Applicability Statement 2 or AS2 is the most widely accepted protocol for carrying out B2B electronic data interchange (EDI) transactions. It comes with several built-in features for securing data, including data-in-motion encryption, digital certificates, digital signatures, and even electronic receipts (known as Message Disposition Notifications or MDNs).
To add an AS2 service, navigate to the Services module of a domain and click the Add button.
When the Service Protocol dialog appears, expand the Protocol drop-down list and select AS2. After that, click OK.
That should bring up the Add AS2 Service dialog. Select HTTP and/or HTTPS.
Click OK to proceed.
The newly added AS2 service should then be added to the Services tab.
Setting up a usable AS2 service, even for testing purposes, takes a bit more than just adding the AS2 service in the Service module.
For more information about setting up an AS2 service, read the chapter on AS2 in this documentation.
