Community trading partners

The trading partners that you can view and manage from a community are Activator partners that are associated with the community for message exchanges. You add trading partners to a community in order to specify the partners that the community can trade with.

Note   A partner can exist in your Activator configuration without being associated with any community. A partner can also be associated with multiple communities.
