Validation rules: Encryption tab

Use the Encryption tab of the Configure message validation rules page to control whether a community accepts or rejects unencrypted (plain text) messages.

Select an option:

  • Reject messages that are not encrypted – Select this option if the messages a partner sends must be encrypted with your public encryption key. Your community decrypts the message with the private key in the digital certificate associated with your community. To send encrypted messages, the partner must have your certificate and public key.
  • Accept messages that are not encrypted – Select this option to accept both encrypted and unencrypted messages.

Whether you choose to reject or accept messages that are not encrypted, the option applies to all messages received for the community, unless you define exceptions. You can set up the following exceptions to these options:

  • Click Add an exception for a partner to create a partner-specific exception.
  • Click Add an exception for a category to create an exception for a partner collaboration category. A collaboration category is a group of partners who have common collaboration settings.
  • Click Add an exception for a trading pickup to create an exception for messages received by the community through a specific community trading pickup.

You can add multiple partners, categories or exchange points to the exceptions lists. Activator applies the opposite of the selected behavior to any partners, collaboration categories, or trading pickups that display in the exceptions lists.
