Sterling B2B Integrator - Accepting Test Flow from a User

In a FUL or FDL request, a user can specify the parameter TEST with the value True to indicate the use of a test file or False to indicate the use of a real file.

This parameter can be specified under the FULOrderParams element for an FUL request, or under the FDLOrderParams element for an FDL request.

When a user uses the TEST flag, the request is processed and verified the same way a real file is. The only difference between a real file and a file with a TEST flag is the difference in the message file name when requests are sent from (or received in) the user’s upload (or download) mailbox.

The naming convention for a test file with the TEST parameter set to True, is as follows:

<HostID>_<FileFormat>_T_D<YYYYMMDD>_H<HHMMSS>_<UniqueID>.DAT

The naming convention for a real file with the TEST parameter set to False or with no value, is as follows:

<HostID>_<FileFormat>_R_D<YYYYMMDD>_H<HHMMSS>_<UniqueID>.DAT
