XML to EDI outbound data does not inlcude reference to ST envelope within InFlight

Whether source format is FLAT file or XML file, we should always display ST envelope details in inflight (if we can find a match during enveloping service). In a nXML_TO_EDI flow, XML flow uses typing service where a typing map is executed (instead of document extraction map) and that typing map will find Sender/Receiver/AcceptorLookupAlias used in OB ST envelopes and populate InFlight with the same information that a document extraction (Flat to EDI) map would.

What is your industry? Non-Industry Specific
How will this idea be used?

The idea will allow support to verify and modify currently established relationships much faster as time spend researching enveloping will not be required when the receiver ID used in the ST enveloping does not match the one being used in the GS/ISA enveloping
