Step 3 of 9

In this step, you configure a party and a business profile for your organization to receive an 850 message from your trading partner and return a 997 acknowledgment message.

Prerequisites

You must be logged on as a member of the BizTalk Server Administrators group.

To configure a party and business profile for your organization

  1. Open the BizTalk Server Administration Console by clicking Start, pointing to All Programs, pointing to Microsoft BizTalk Server, and then clicking BizTalk Server Administration.

  2. In the BizTalk Server Administration Console, expand BizTalk Server Administration, and then expand BizTalk Group. Right-click Parties, point to New, and then click Party.

  3. In the Party Properties dialog box, enter OrderSystem in the Name field.

  4. Select the Local BizTalk processes messages received by the party or supports sending messages from this party check box. By selecting the check box you specify that the party (in this case, OrderSystem) also hosts BizTalk Server.

  5. Click OK.

  6. Right-click the party name, point to New, and then click Business Profile.

  7. In the Profile Properties dialog box, on the General page, enter OrderSystem_Profile in the Name text box.

    Note

    When you create a party, a profile named PartyName_Profile is automatically created. You can use this profile instead of creating a new one. To rename a profile, right-click the profile and select Properties. In the General page, specify a name for the profile.

  8. Click OK.
