webMethods.io B2B Integration with Cloud container


This article explains how webMethods.io B2B can be integrated with webMethods.io cloud container


It is assumed that readers of this article know

  • How to setup B2B enterprise profile and partner on the webMethods.io B2B platform.
  • How to create solutions in cloud container
  • How to create service and deploy it on cloud container solutions.


Topics Covered

  • Configure cloud container credentials in webMethods.io B2B
  • Overview of service to be deployed on Cloud container
  • Deploy the service to cloud container
  • Configure the Inbound processing rule action
  • End to End working flow

Use Case:

  • In our case, we will be submit the 850 Purchase order request to webMethods.io B2B as inbound transaction.
  • Processing rule will invoke to process the request.
  • In the processing rule, under the action tab, we have configured the cloud container service.
  • Custom service is developed and deployed on cloud containers.
  • Same cloud container service is configured under the processing rule in webMethods.io B2B.
  • Once the request is received at cloud container from b2B, content can be extracted from the BizDoc document for further processing.

Configure cloud container credentials

  • Navigate to webMethods.io B2B settings page
  • Under section tab select Extensions tab
  • Provide the credentials to connect cloud container instance.


Overview of service to be deployed on Cloud container

  • Connect to your on-prem webMethods Integration Server Designer

  • Created a package named “CloudIntegrator”

  • Developed a flowService “RcvBizDocFromB2B” responsible for receiving the transaction from B2B

  • As B2B sends BizDoc message, therefore we need to configure the input parameters on the RcvBizDocFromB2B flowService.

  • Set below Input parameters
    a. wm.tn.rec:BizDocEnvelope
    b. wm.tn.rec:ProfileSummary
    c. wm.tn.rec:ProfileSummary

  • To select the above docs in the input provide
    “wm.tn.rec: ReliableProcessingService” under specification tab and click enter.


Note: To have above documents as reference in the flow service WmTN package should be installed.

Deploy the service to cloud container

  • Save the flow service
  • Deploy the package using “Deploy to Cloud” option.


Note: Refer below link for detail steps to add the cloud container instance and deploy the solution to the cloud container

Configure the Processing rule in B2B

  • Navigate to processing rule “ABC_Corp_To_ShippingEnterprise_AS2_In”.

  • Above rule mentioned is inbound rule with below details

    • Sender: ABC_Corp
    • Receiver: Shipping Enterprise
    • Protocol: AS2

  • Select the below configuration
    1. solution name: DigitalSolution
    2. Node: IS
    3. Package : CloudIntegrator
    4. Service: RcvBizDocFromB2B
    5. Execution mode: Reliable


  • Save the changes

End to End Testing

Submit and verify request from webMethods.io B2B

  • Submit the 850-purchase order transaction using from B2B document submission tab.
  • Verify the transaction is submitted successfully and correct processing rule has been invoked from Transaction Monitoring page.
