HTTP or HTTPS or SOAP - PO 7.4

Hello

We have recently upgraded to PO 7.4. As we have a new interface which needs to be sent to third party, there are some questions regarding the data transfer. Please do advise on the following.

1. We have agreed to transfer idoc-xml using HTTPS. Please advise whether the same is possible in PO 7.4.#

2. We had just agreed as HTTPS at both ends, is this possible? What adapter should I be using in both sender and receiver.?

3. The third party have asked me the following questions, Mutual SSL

authentication or do you have a site that has a login or requires a

user/password?

We have several servers it could be initiated from so before i give you ip

details i need a little more info as to what has been agreed as the method

of data transfer.


I am bit confused on the questions asked by their IT team.


Can you help me out in how to build the scenario in PO and what are all the things that I should be using in both Sender and Receiver adapter.


Regards

Sam

    Hi,

    1. We have agreed to transfer idoc-xml using HTTPS. Please advise whether the same is possible in PO 7.4.#

    ------- Yes it is possible to send data idoc-xml via HTTPS

    2. We had just agreed as HTTPS at both ends, is this possible? What adapter should I be using in both sender and receiver.?

    -------- That depends, what is the sender system. If they have sender which supports it , then it is possible to do this.

    3. The third party have asked me the following questions, Mutual SSL

    authentication or do you have a site that has a login or requires a

    user/password?



    ----------------- What I can infer from this question is -

                                i) If you are using soap channel as sender with HTTP then you need to provide user of                                  PO to them so that data can be transmitted to PI from sender


                                ii) In case of mutual SSL authentication we need to provide them PI certificate and receiver need to provide their certificate to PI. In this case authenticatio will happen via certificate and keys.
