Comprehensive XML document support
webMethods.io B2B’s recently released XML document support, which enables EDI developers to extract, build and customize XML documents.
We now support document creation through an XML schema, sample XML file - or built from a Document Type Definition (DTD) from an existing schema.
This new function compliments the existing ability to match XML document types to a sample XML file, allowing quick identification of duplicate document types.
Further supporting ease-of-use, your XML documents are powered through the addition of customized XML attributes, providing users the ability to specify and name fields within processing rules to enhance rule execution for any XML document.

The new dashboards provide a powerful tool for EDI managers who need to quikly understand and report on:

At a glance, other significant updates include:
Control number Support
Control numbers definitions can now be used to ensure that business documents exchanged between you and your partners are processed in a sequence. This means none of your documents are lost or left unprocessed.
Processing Rule enhancements
- Email alerts can be sent to an unlimited number of recipients when a specific processing rule is executed.
- You can now configure the processing rule to call an integration from webMethods.io Integration by selecting the project, flow service created by user.
Audit Log Additions
Audit logging has been expanded to include general, deployment and transactional activities for better error resolution and overall transaction monitoring.
All the audit log activities are accessibility presented in one easy-to-use, consolidated interface.
