Empty Message in EDI Pipeline RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dears,

    I am getting EDI messages without UNZ segment. EDI Pipeline parses all the messages in an interchange and also tries to parse an additional empty message. please let me know how to restrict Unwanted Error in event log. 

    There is no impact as all the messages in interchange are debatched and processed.

  • UNB and UNZ is a required segment pair.

    If you are getting interchanges without UNZ, your trading partner is sending invalid EDI so the problem is on their side, not with BizTalk or your app.

    The solution is to get them to send correct EDI.

    If they can't or won't, then the first thing you have to do is inform your management that the Trading Partner is not EDIFACT compliant and you will have to spend extra time to accommodate that.

    Then, the best solution is creating a custom Pipeline Component for the Decode Stage that appends a valid UNZ segment.
