my question is about the Biztalk 2010 Standard. We're just trying to implement the EDIFACT based data exchange solution. We will have a lot of partners (every with their own private input/out ports), thus we decided to use the "Parties" feature. But I'm stuck in the beginning, I created few Parties with Business profiles, but I cannot add the protocol settings. The "Add protocol settings" button is disabled. Please, could somebody help me with this? I cannot find anything about this problem online.
All protocol settings happens in agreements now.
Right-click a profile and choose New-Agreement.
In the agreement you will need to specify both the second party (usually you!) and the protocol (X12,EDIFACT,AS2)
After you have chosen these two options, two new tabs will appear (party1->party2 and party2->party1) under these tabs you will be able to specify all the EDI specific parameters for the agreements and add send port(s).
