How to setup an AS2 Partner

Setting up your AS2 Partner in Infoplus to Trade EDI Documents.

To trade EDI Documents with a partner in Infoplus, you must first set up an AS2 Partner record that defines how Infoplus and your partner will exchange documents.  After establishing an AS2 Partner record, you can then create one or more EDI Connection records from a single AS2 partner. 

Infoplus AS2 Details

When you are talking to your partner, preparing to establish your connection, they will need the following information from you, which defines how they can exchange AS2 messages with Infoplus.

AS2 URL Replace ${client-sub-domain} with your infoplus sub-domain in this URL:${client-sub-domain}

I.E. for an Infoplus site with the URL, the AS2 URL is

Note that you will have a different URL for your Infoplus production site, then you will for your Infoplus test site.
AS2 Id infoplus
AS2 Qualifier ZZ (this can be any agreed-upon value)
Sign Documents Yes
Signature Algorithm SHA-1
Encrypt Documents Yes
Encryption Algorithm Triple DES (3DES)
Synchronous MDN Yes (Preferred)
Certificate infoplus.cer

Setting up the AS2 Partner

To setup a new AS2 Partner in Infoplus, after you have received your partner's AS2 connection details (as mentioned above), navigate to the AS2 Partner table and click Create New.  

  1. In the Name field, give this AS2 Partner a meaningful name for identification purposes.  
  2. Enter the AS2 Id and AS2 URL that the partner has given you.
  3. For the Request an Asynchronous MDN field, it is recommended to select False - but, if your partner requires Asynchronous MDN, then select True.  
  4. If your partner will be Signing Documents that they send to you, set that field to True, then paste in the partner's Signing Certificate in the text box below.  The certificate should be in PEM format.  
  5. If you want to send encrypted documents to your partner, set the Encrypt Documents field to True, select the Encryption Algorithm to be used, and then paste in the partner's Encryption Certificate in the text box below. The certificate should be in PEM format.  Note that in most cases, you will use the same certificate for both the Signing Certificate and the Encryption Certificate.
  6. Save the connection record.  

When you are finished creating an AS2 Partner, you can then proceed with creating EDI Connections.  


If you are receiving an error on your EDI document, go to the Logs tab in the EDI Document. If the error is "error attempting to send via AS2", contact your AS2 provider for additional logs. 

In addition, if the error persists, try creating a new AS2 connection and verify your ID, URL, and certificate.
