How to Modify Receiver Parameters Within an EDI Project
Receivers are automatically assigned and configured for each Domain within a created EDI Project. All Domains generating segments of EDI Data are assigned the EDISegmentDataCreatorReceiver.
The Merge Domain within the EDI Project is assigned the EDISegmentMergeReceiver. The EDISegmentMergeReceiver merges multiple segments of data into the EDI formatted output.
Parameters for these Receivers do not have to be modified to generate EDI test data. They are pre-configured and will work if the subdirectories and required files are available on the user’s local computer. However, some Receiver Parameters may be customized if desired.
How to modify Receiver Parameters
For this example, we will show how to view and modify the Receiver Parameters for the EDISegmentMergeReceiver.
Step 1: View the Domain within the Domain Dashboard
The Merge Domain can be accessed and viewed through the Project Dashboard by selecting the EDI Project and entering Merge into the filter input field within the Domains Pane.
Note: Click on any Domain within the Domains Pane to view it within the Domain Dashboard and access the Receiver Parameters.
Step 2: View the Assigned Receiver
Within the Domain Dashboard, click on the Receiver Name (e.g., EDISegmentMergeReceiver) to view its Parameters.
Step 3: Make Changes to the Receiver’s Parameters
For EDI Projects, these Parameters are modified the most often within the EDISegmentMergeReceiver:
outputSubDirectory – This is the subdirectory where the generated EDI Output files are stored within the user’s output path on their local computer. The default value is data.
configSubDir – This is the subdirectory where the EDI Config File will need to be placed within the user’s output path to generate EDI test data. The default value is config.
To change Parameter values, click on the input field to type the new value or select an option from a drop-down menu.
Note: Remember to click the Save button after making any modifications to Receiver Parameters.
Important: Please note that if the EDI Config File subdirectory is changed, the EDI Config File will need to be placed within that subdirectory instead of the default value (config) to generate EDI test data.
