    Title:
    B2B PO Communication
    Summary:
    Can not configure B2B PO communication
    Content:

    Hi,

    I've been trying to get my approved PO's sent out through B2B communication and I've done all the setup as mentioned on this DOC ID: https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=1995064.1

    However, they only talk about integration with OSN. I want to simply send the file by e-mail or store it as a file on a location. But those setups are not covered. For example for email protocol, it asks me my email id and host name, I have no idea what to fill in. For File protocol it simply asks for a folder.

    But for both protocols I'm getting the same error:

    Transport error: [MsgCannotBeSent] SMTP message cannot be sent.

    Anyone who has experience with this? I've searched forums and communities but haven't found anything. My next step will be an SR.

    Thanks

    ~Jim

    Hi Jim, 

    Unfortunately, I haven't setup XML communication from PRC cloud to OSuN myself, but I do have experience with EBS to OSuN.
    If I remember well, the identifiers (sender/receiver) can be be set in te profile section on OSuN (you may select DUNS or MISC as identifier).

    You may find some supporting documents on OSuN here: https://osn.oracle.com/snw/faces/Resources.jsf

    Hope this helps,

      Hi Jim,

      If you want to send Approved Purchase Orders via email then you just need to set the supplier site communication method as email.

      There is no need for B2B setup, let me know if i am missing something else

      Thanks,
      Ramesh

      Hi Jim,

      Do you want to communicate the PO in XML format via email?

      Hi Ramesh, Ivan,

      Ultimately, we want to send out XML's for approved PO's through an (S)FTP or any other shared location. Hence my setup for B2B Communication. I was first trying to setup to send the XML through e-mail to get an idea of what the XML looked like, but there's no guide on how to configure this.

      So if anyone knows what to do to set this up, all information is welcome. It's quite urgent.

      Hi Jim, 

      Not sure whether you found a solution yet, but did you consider sending the XML to OSN and pick it up from there to review the XML message?

      In case you managed to send it by email, would love to learn how you did it!

      Thanks,
      Bas

        Hi Bas,

        Thanks for your answer. It's a good call, and I've tried it. But unfortunately I have no idea how to set up certain parameters for the OSN channel.

        The 'SENDER ID' and 'RECEIVER ID' I assume are the User ID's I can find on the User's profile in OSN?

        SENDER and RECEIVER_ID_TYPE is what? DUNS?

        Also, have no idea what the correct URL is and which port it would use.

        Alas, have not been able to set it up, there seems to be only some general high level documentation on this.

        Any help with that is appreciated.

        Thanks.

        [EDIT: I've also logged an SR for this, since I'm not progressing]

            My colleagues were able to setup the B2B communication using e-mail so I've received an example.

            Thank you all for the replies.

            (BTW, I didn't meant to rate the above reply as best, I misclicked and can't seem to undo)

      Hi Jim, Bas

      I think right point for this would be B2B/SOA team to answer on how to setup the different channels(File/Email) for the communication.

      Also, if this is for new customer we can suggest them to use CMK for communicating to a Webservice?

      Thanks,

        Well, if this team could make some documentation on how to set this up, that would be great.

        On top of that, we're on release 9 on premise, so not the latest versions.
