To create a new message definition, you have two main options:
- Create it from scratch.
- Duplicate an existing message definition (from your environment, or from the Babelway catalogue).
To create a Message Definition, you have first to select the type of message that you want to use (CSV, XML, Edifact, ...).
MessageDefinition creation - Type choice.
Then you need to follow the instructions on the screen. The parameters depend on the type of MessageDefinition selected. You can find detailed explanation of every type in the section of MessageDefinition formats.
Reuse an existing MessageDefinition.
The other solution is to select an existing MessageDefinition from the "Reuse and Save time" zone.
When you are in the Channels section, and you reuse a MessageDefinition that is already used in other channels, you will have the choice to share the MessageDefinition, or to make a copy.
More details can be found in the Reuse and Save time section.
