Configuring Individual ConnectionsLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can configure the processing of a message for an individual connection.

The configuration objects that result from your entries are either created or are modified, depending on whether they already exist or not. You can always see which configuration step you are currently working on from the progress display in the frame next to the input fields in the configuration wizard.

You use this tool when you want to configure a single communication step.

To configure an entire process model including all connections, use the model configurator.
