EDI communicates with partners using the FTP and AS2 protocols. Except for the Jitterbit VAN Service, connection profiles for each protocol are set up by you in the Create new FTP or Create new AS2 tabs. To communicate with a trading partner, you must assign one of these connections to them.
Connections are available to all partners and remain even when partners are deleted.
Jitterbit VAN Service¶
To assign a connection, follow these steps:
Select a partner in the trading partners pane.
Click a connection's Actions icon and select Assign.
A green border and check mark appears on the connection to show it is now assigned to the currently selected partner.
Many partners can use the same connection, but a partner can have only one assigned connection at a time.
To edit a connection, follow these steps:
Click a connection's Actions icon and select Edit.
Edit the connection's details, then click Save.
The My Connections tab opens showing the updated connection.
To delete a connection, follow these steps:
Click a connection's Actions icon and select Delete.
Assigned connections cannot be deleted. To delete an assigned connection, assign a different one to the selected partner.
The connection is deleted.
Connections are deleted without confirmation.
