How will this idea be used?

We have a vision for our trading partners to do a self-service as much as possible. As part of that vision, we have asked trading partners to use the self-service event subscription notification feature in file gateway. But we have a limitation with the current product functionality with the way we have implemented the product. Currently, File Gateway is passing Trading Partner Code only, and it does not work for our implementation/any other customers who are planning to use different trading partner name and completely different trading partner code. So we are asking this enhancement, provision to extend the OOB FG event attributes and then pass all the available attributes to Event Notification Process. Where customers can customize the XSLT's and take which ever information is appropriate for their implementations. For this customer implementation, they need actual trading partner name (it can be a producer name in some cases and consumer name in some cases or both) to the Event Notification Process for all the out-of-box file gateway events. Example: when creating a Trading Partner in File Gateway, Trading Partner Name Selected as XYZ, Trading Partner Code as 123456, File Gateway is passing trading partner code 123456 to the event notification process but not the actual logical name of the partner which is XYZ.
