To trade EDI Documents with a partner in Infoplus, you must setup an AS2 Partner record, which defines how Infoplus and your partner will exchange documents.  After establishing an AS2 Partner record, you can then create one or more EDI Connection records, which can share a AS2 Partner record as needed.  


For example, if you are trading documents with multiple retailers, or for multiple Lines of Business, if they are all flowing through the same EDI Van or service provider, you could have multiple EDI Connections all using the same AS2 Partner record in Infoplus.  


Infoplus AS2 Details

When you are talking to your partner, preparing to establish your connection, they will need the following information from you, which defines how they can exchange AS2 messages with Infoplus.

AS2 URLReplace ${client-sub-domain} with your infoplus sub-domain in this URL:
https://as2.infopluswms.com/infoplus-edi-as2Receiver/${client-sub-domain}

I.E. for an Infoplus site with the URL https://myaccount.infopluswms.com, the AS2 URL is https://as2.infopluswms.com/infoplus-edi-as2Receiver/myaccount

Note that you will have a different URL for your Infoplus production site, than you will for you Infoplus test site.

  4. If your partner will be Signing Documents that they send to you, set that field to True, then paste in the partner's Signing Certificate in the text box below.  The certificate should be in PEM format.  
  5. If your want to send encrypted documents to your partner, set the Encrypt Documents field to True, select the Encryption Algorithm to be used, and then paste in the partner's Encryption Certificate in the text box below.
