Automatic option for connectivity test with Trading partners.

Currently in order to do any connectivity testing with trading partners we have to do series of tasks on SCBN.


Current Activities/ Challenges which we have:

1. We need to create InFlight FTP relationships.

2. We need to configure BPN send/receive rules.

3. We need to use FileZilla to push outbound test files.

4. Currently we are no where tracking in InFlight whether connectivity testing is success or not.


So it would be of great help in case if we have additional section in InFlight and BPN for connectivity testing which does the connectivity testing setups and aids us to test communication with trading partners using the pre loaded dummy files.


This would also help us to document and sing off on the communication readiness with trading partners. This option can be used for all the protocols.
