|sender agreement (BC-XI)|
Defines the technical details for inbound processing of a message for a particular sender/receiver pair, that is, how the Integration Server behaves towards the sender of a message.
A sender agreement contains a reference to a communication channel. A sender agreement is made between a sender and a receiver with regard to an outbound interface. In many collaborative processes, the receiver is not yet known during inbound processing, and is only determined during routing. In this case, a sender agreement can only refer to the sender information and not the receiver information.
