For Commands, an action consists of one or more commands that are to be run sequentially as a group. You can choose to have one action that does ALL sending and receiving, or you can choose to separate sending and receiving into two or more actions, potentially if sends and receives are not to be scheduled at the same intervals.
- Select the action in the tree pane.
- The potential set of commands depends on the client-to-host protocol.
*HTTP derivatives like AS2, AS4, EBICS, ebXML, RNIF and WS generally only support PUT.
The actual supported set of commands and their syntax is further dependent on the host type. For more information, see the section specific to the host type in question.
