Partner Detail→ Locations

In order to set up document transfers to or from a partner, we need to set up one or several message endpoints. A message endpoint is called a ‘Location’ or a ‘Transport configuration’ in Link. Locations can be regular file folders, FTP folders, email addresses, web-service URLs – anything is possible – but the options available to you will depend on the specific transport types your administrator have chosen to make available on your system.

The locations registered on the partner will be displayed here. In the example screenshot above, 4 locations have been created, in which three of them are global locations.

Create location [1]

To begin creating a new location, press the '+' icon at the top of the data grid. You will then be prompted with a dropdown, where you can select the Transport Type for the location. Each of the Transport Types are explained on their own seperate page in the user guide. Refer to the menu on the left to learn more about a specific Transport Type. 

Generally when creating a new location, or editing an existing one, you will see these options at the top:

  • Retry count: How many times Link must retry to transfer a message in case of unsuccessful delivery.
  • Retry interval: How many minutes Link must wait between retry attempts.
  • Transport convoy pattern key: Only visible if choices have been set up for the data owner – contact your administrator if you think you need this.
  • Is Global: Check this to mark the location as global, meaning it can be used across several partners. It will appear in blue on the 'Distribution Search Details' page

If you are unsure about these options, just leave the default values as they are. It will be fine in most cases. Only the name field is required.

Most importantly, you must specify the transport options. There will be different fields available to fill out depending on which transport type (location type) you choose.

Note that for a Location, there can be up to four Enviroments: Dev, Test, PreProd and Prod. You can read more about Environments on the 'Environments' page in the user guide.

Edit [2]

You can edit a location by pressing the 'Edit' button in the rightmost column. The page for the specific location and transport type will be displayed. See the page for the specific transport type in the user guide for more information. Press 'Save' when you are done editing or press 'Cancel' to discard your changes.

Delete [2]

Click here to delete the location. You will be prompted to confirm your choice. Note that deleting global locations can affect other partners as well.
