  • Since the UNA and UNB segment of an EDIFACT interchange is not part of any actual EDIFACT message, but rather the whole interchange, these segment are not found in the EDIFACT Schemas. There values (or at least some of them) are written/promoted to the context on the receive side though.

    If you need to alter how the UNA, UNB segment should appear on the send side, you need to set up Parties/Agreements.
