Sterling B2B Integrator - Managing Profiles in EBICS Client

A Super admin or an EBICS Client admin can configure bank, user, offer, and file format profiles.

Profile Management in EBICS Client enables you to configure the following profiles. A Super admin or an EBICS Client admin can configure the profiles.

  • Bank
  • User
  • Offer
  • File format
Note: A Super admin is the default admin role created when EBICS Client is installed. An authorized user can log in to the EBICS Client dashboard interface using the super admin login credentials and configure an EBICS Client admin, EBICS Client operator, and EBICS Client user and other profiles. An EBICS Client admin can also configure an EBICS Client admin, EBICS Client operator, EBICS Client user, and other profiles.

You can configure an existing Sterling B2B Integrator user as an EBICS Client user from the Profile Management menu.

Configure the following in Sterling B2B Integrator:
  • Create trading partner entities.

    Field
    Description
    BankID(Host ID)Required. Select the Bank ID from the drop-down list.
    Identification and authentication key hash value(In hex format)Required. Specify the identification and authentication key hash value provided by the bank.
    Hash AlgorithmRequired. Select the hash algorithm of the identification and authentication key hash value. Valid values are:
    • SHA1 (default)

    Hash AlgorithmRequired. Select the hash algorithm of the encryption key hash value. Valid values are:
    • SHA1 (default)
    • SHA256
    Note:

    By default, the rsaHashKeyCompliant property in the ebics_client.properties file is false.

    When set to false, it generates the SHA-256 hash value for RSA keys, by concatenating the exponent with a blank character and the modulus in hexadecimal representation (using lower case letters).The resulting string is then converted into a byte array based on US ASCII code.

    When set to true it generates the SHA-256 hash value for RSA keys, by concatenating the exponent with a blank character and the modulus in hexadecimal representation (using lower case letters) without leading zero (as to the hexadecimal representation).The resulting string is then converted into a byte array based on US ASCII code.

    To change the property, set rsaHashKeyCompliant to true and restart the server.

    If rsaHashKeyCompliant property in the file is true then, set the Use modulus and exponent with space for Hash input in Initialization Letter and Use modulus and exponent with space for Hash input in Bank key validation properties to true using Ebics Client Administration Menu System Property. For more information, see ebics_client.properties.
