Manage community-to-delivery specific collaboration settings

You can specify collaboration settings to apply between one specific community and one specific partner delivery.

These settings are the most specific level. They override:

  • Default collaboration settings
  • Community-specific collaboration settings
  • Community-to-partner category specific collaboration settings
  • Community-to-partner specific collaboration settings

Use example: Partner_A wants to send unsigned acknowledgements only with the AS2 protocol, but signed in all other cases. You can specify that Partner_A send unsigned acknowledgements over an AS2 delivery, while all other messages received from Partner_A (or other partners) require signing
