EDIConfig is used to define Sender and Receiver Qualifiers/Identifier used by Sending/Receiving Organizations in EDI/IDoc files for Inbound/Outbound transactions. It support both X12 and EDIFact EDI's along with IDoc. This feature allows users to configure any custom EDI delimiter other than standard EDI delimiter while generating Outbound EDI files and also allows to configure suppress acknowledgement (EDI 997) and support for EDI 824 for business error. One entry for inbound along with one entry for outbound transaction for a partnership is required to process/generate any EDI; no need to provide EDI configuration for each transaction type. EDIConfig menu changes as per EDIType meaning if EDIFact is selected then Group Identifiers will no longer mandatory and if IDoc is selected then only Identifiers will be mandatory and Qualifiers will be removed from the screen. For example, a user may want to process EDI 315, 214 inbound file where both shares same sender/receiver identifiers then one EDIConfig entry is sufficient to process both transaction in ONE system. Please find below structure of EDI_Config table with example.
