EDIFACT business services provide the following settings:
The remaining settings are either common to all business services or are determined by the type of adapter. For information, see:
Indicates how to treat received batch Interchange documents the production receives. The options are:
Do not process child documents individually; accumulate and send the whole batch as one composite document.
Forward each document in the batch as part of a single session, including a final parent document object containing the batch header and trailer segments.
Forward each document in the batch in its own session, followed by the parent document object containing the batch header and trailer segments.
Forward each child document in the batch in its own session; do not forward parent batch document objects.
Category to apply to incoming EDIFACT document type names to produce a complete DocType
specification. Combines with the document type name to produce a DocType

values to apply to documents declared as that type.
A trailing asterisk (*) at the end of a given partial type name matches any types beginning with the partial entry.

Comma-separated list of configuration items to which to send EDIFACT documents. The value of this field must be the configured name of one or more of the following items within the Ensemble production:

True or False. If True, the business service processes an incoming file without error, even if newline characters have been inserted into the file after (or in place of) segment terminators to enhance readability.
