Ability to correlate deferred documents with the ST control number assigned to them at time of enveloping

For each document that we process and defer, we lose track of the specific control numbers that are assigned at the time of enveloping. For instance, if you defer 5 separate documents at various times and later run enveloping, we need a method to identify which ST control number is associated with each previously deferred document.

This feature was requested for ITXA (https://watsonsupplychain.ideas.aha.io/ideas/ITX-I-7) and has already been implemented in ITXA 10.0.0 :-

Tracking of the original encoded document ID to its respective transaction control number using a Correlation

How will this idea be used?

This will allow inbound 997/999 interchanges to be reconciled at the transaction set level. As we only receive the transaction set control numbers and transation set level outcomes in the 997/999, we need to know the transaction set control numbers assigned by B2B Integrator during the deferred enveloping process.
