Work around trading partner setup RRS feed

  • Question

  • BizTalk 2010 CU3

    I need to send 835s to hundreds of different trading partners.  Rather than create hundreds of trading partners and ports, I would like to have a simple setup (one send, one receive port) where I can manage a lookup table containing sender ids, receiver ids, output file masks, delimiters, etc.  The lookup would use the billing provider's NPI from the 835 XML.  I'm clueless how to start this task.

  • Here's some pointers to get you started:

    You can override all the envelope fields by using the Properties defined in EDIOverride ( So these you can set from a db lookup any time prior to the EDI Assembler.

    How many Agreements you have will need may depend on how many sets of delimiters you have end.  However, keep in mind that a Receiver really shouldn't require any particular set of delimiters because they are all defined in the ISA Segment.

    The receiving side is a bit more complicated because there is not way to specify a single Agreement.  More than once, I have had to overwrite the Sender and Receiver Identifiers to force resolution to a 'Master' Agreement.

    You can use a Dynamic File Adapter to set the output folder:
