  • Error - Error while receiving by HTTP (error code: 407 , error text: ICM_HTTP_SSL_ERROR)
  • Sender Party: PurchaseOrderProcessing

In odrer to process the inter company scenario, customer has defined the Communication Arrangement - Purchase Order Integration. In the communication arrangement, user has defined the same Service URL for both Inbound and Outbound communication. Which means the business communication is happening within the same Business ByDesign system. In such case, the output channel for purchase order should be Internal EDX. However customer has used the Output Channel as XML in the supplier master data which inturn defaults in the purchase order. As a result, system failed to communicate the message from purchase order to incoming sales orders and cannot create inter company sales order


When the communication is happening within the same ByDesign system, customer should use the output channel as Internal EDX in the supplier master. To do so;

  1. Go to the Supplier Base work center
  2. Go to the Suppliers view
  3. Select the relevant Supplier
  4. Navigate to Communication tab and select sub tab Collaboration
  5. Select the Business Document - Purchase Order and select the Output Channel as Internal EDX
  6. Select Save
