Validation rules: cXML tab

Use the cXML tab of the Configure message validation rules page to control whether a community accepts cXML messages with a shared secret.

Activator cXML delivery exchanges optionally can require passwords in a SharedSecret element in the cXML document header.

Select an option:

  • Reject messages without a shared secret – Select this option if you want the community to only accept cXML messages that have shared secret elements.
  • Accept messages that are not signed (DEFAULT) – Select this option if you want the community to accept cXML messages with and without shared secret elements.

Whether you choose to reject or accept cXML messages without shared secrets, the choice applies to all messages received for the community, unless you define exceptions. You can set up the following exceptions to the message signing option:

  • 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 trading pickups 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.
