Add a PGP pickup or delivery

PGP certificates can be used only with special PGP trading pickups and deliveries for FTP and SFTP. These are exchanges for sending messages to partners (set up in partner objects) or consuming messages from partners (set up in communities). The use of PGP for picking up from, or routing messages to a back-end system is not supported.

Add a PGP trading partner delivery

  1. From the Partners page select a partner to open the Summary page for that partner.
  2. On the navigation graphic at the top of the page, click Partner delivery.
  3. Click Add a delivery to launch the exchange wizard.
  4. Select PGP (FTP, SFTP) and click Next. You must select PGP. Do not select AS3 or any other message protocol that supports FTP and SFTP.
  5. Select FTP or SFTP, then click Next and follow the prompts.

The subsequent steps are identical to adding any FTP or SFTP partner delivery. See Exchange links below for links to details of setting up and maintaining FTP and SFTP exchanges.

‘From’ and ‘To’ address settings

For community trading pickups, follow the usual guidelines for “from” and “to” addresses. Use these so Activator can identify senders properly.

  • If EDI messages are traded, select Always parse for the address and select the option: If the document is EDI, parse for the address.
  • If XML messages are traded, select Always parse for the address and select the option: If the document is XML, use XPaths to locate the address. Select a document type and its corresponding XPath. If your type is not listed, click XPath to use a wizard for setting the XPath using your sample of an XML document.
  • To trade binary messages, select Specify the address and select the fixed address.
