Routing ID for ebXML

When setting up a community for ebXML, the routing ID must be set up in one of two ways:

  • The routing ID (party ID) must be a Universal Resource Identifier (). For example, urn:myroutingid. When the routing ID is a URI, an ebXML party ID type is not necessary.
  • When the routing ID (party ID) is not a URI, enter an ebXML party ID type in addition to a unique routing ID. The ebXML party ID type can be any string (a URI, a DUNS number or something else) and the routing ID can be any unique string. For example: urn:mystring 123456789. The type value must match the PartyId /@type attribute value for the PartyInfo entry in the CPA for the community.

If you trade with the same partner using both ebXML and any other message protocol, the community needs separate routing IDs for each protocol. The ebXML routing ID must not be the default. The default must be the routing ID used for the other message protocol.
