In a receiver agreement, you define how the message is to be transformed so that it can be processed by a receiver.
You must specify a receiver agreement for all adapter types to ensure that outbound processing is executed correctly.
When you create a new receiver agreement, you must at least specify the party or service and the inbound interface for the sender and receiver.
You can use a wildcard character (*) for the sender party, sender service, and the receiver interface (see: Generic/Specific Definition of Configuration Objects).
To assign a communication channel (receiver channel), use the input help ( ). The input help displays the communication channels that are assigned to the receiver.
In the header mapping you can map the values of the following key fields of the receiver agreement to other values: sender and receiver party, sender and receiver service. The address fields (sender, receiver) in the message header are then transformed correspondingly during outbound processing.
The header mapping is important when configuring cross-company processes in which the business partners want to replace the names of their internal business systems with neutral representatives (party, business service).
If you want to replace the internal name of a sender business system in the outbound message with a neutral name of a party and service, specify the fields for Sender Party and Sender Service in the header mapping.
You can do the following in the header mapping:
● Specify fixed values
● Define that the conversion of the field values is to be determined dynamically from the message payload
To specify the header mapping for an address field, select the check box for the field name (for example, sender service) and choose Display List of Permitted Values ().
There are different editors for specifying the party and service:
● Use the party editor to specify a party
● Use the service editor to specify a service
Header mappings are only supported by the following receiver adapters at runtime:
- IDoc Adapter
- Plain HTTP adapter
- RNIF Adapter 2.0
- RNIF Adapter 1.1
- CIDX Adapter
If you want the Integration Server to propagate principals to the receiver, select the Propagate Principal checkbox.
This function is only supported for receiver channels with adapter type XI, RFC, or SOAP.
More information: Service Users for Message Exchange
More information about the technical configuration of this function: Configuration of Principal Propagation
If you have assigned the receiver agreement a communication channel with adapter type XI, SOAP, Mail, or CIDX, you can specify settings for message security.
To be able to configure the security settings, the appropriate checkboxes for message security must be selected in the assigned communication channel: for the adapter types XI and SOAP, select the Web Services Security checkbox; for adapter type RNIF and CIDX, select the checkboxes under Security Settings.
In the case of the adapter type Mail, the message protocol must be XIPAYLOAD and the checkbox S/MIME must be selected.
