Note: To create a new cloudlink, you need to have at least one B2B Directory entry.
To create a new REST cloudlink, follow these steps:
Open the app B2B Directory.
Open the menu item Cloudlinks > Own Cloudlinks.
In the field B2B Directory Entry, select the entry from or to which messages should be sent.
In the field Type, select REST.
In the field Direction, the option Both is the default value, because REST connections always include sending and receiving messages.
In the field Usage, select how you want to use your cloudlink:
In the field Connection Name, enter the name for this cloudlink, so you can later identify it in the list of your cloudlinks.
In the section SEEBURGER Cloud Access, you will find the information needed to configure your EDI system:
In the section Your System Access, provide the information for the SEEBURGER Cloud to connect to your system in the following steps.
In the field URL, enter the URL of your EDI system which will send and/or receive the messages. The URL may look like this: https://http.seeburger.cloud/tst_bis/http
In the field Client Authentication, you can select between these options:
In the fields Username and Password, enter the user name and password which should be used by the SEEBURGER Cloud to send files to your EDI system.
In the field HTTP Header Parameters, enter the header parameters that should be included in the messages sent from the SEEBURGER Cloud to you.
In the field Time to live (minutes), enter the time after which messages will expire if they cannot be delivered to your routing partner. Your routing partners can find expired messages in the app B2B Routing if they are registered in the SEEBURGER Cloud. The default value is 5760 minutes which equals 4 days. Until the expiration date has been reached, the SEEBURGER Cloud will periodically retry to send your messages to your partner. This helps bridging outage times of your partner‘s system without manual intervention.
In the field Error Alert E-Mail(s), enter the email addresses to which notifications in case of communication errors will be sent. Only notifications about communication errors concerning this cloudlink will be sent.
Set a check mark in the field Asynchronous Status Message Enabled to receive an additional status message concerning the processing and sending of your message to your partner. If you do not set a check mark, you will only receive the default http status code 200. The field Rest Cloudlink becomes active, so you can select the cloudlink which should be used to receive status messages.
In the field Comment, you can enter more details to specify this cloudlink.
Click Upload to add your certificates for HTTPS.
In the field Use from, you can enter the date and time of the certificate activation.
Click the link in your preferred language to download the data sheet and certificates for your REST connection to configure your connection to the SEEBURGER Cloud in your EDI system.
