If you have two trading partners (that is, hosts) configured, you can enhance your configuration to automatically send files to the second trading partner after the files have been successfully sent to the first trading partner using an auto copy. Given Host A (the original sender) and Host B (the additional sender), in most situations you would perform the following steps to configure auto copy:
- Add an auto copy action to Host B (steps 1-2 below).
- Configure Host A so that the files that have been sent are automatically deposited into the file source location (that is, the Outbox) for Host B's auto copy action (step 3 below).
- Configure the Host B auto copy action to automatically send the file when it is copied from Host A (step 4 below).
The following diagram illustrates the flow of the file that is sent using "Auto-Copy" (dotted lines signify dependence on successful completion of the file being sent to the first Trading Partner):
