Ability to create single relationship setup which can handle multiple folders for FTP/SFTP

Business scenario : Currently our system configuration allows only one FTP/SFTP folder to be pointed under single Sterling Commerce Inflight relationship.

Sometimes we get request from client for 1xFTP/SFTP setup but route different file type to respective sub-folder

Example: FTP/SFTP setup with user ID : ABC

route 850 files to ORDERS folder

route 810 files to INVOICE folder etc..

To achieve this we currently have to create two or more relationship for each folder.

Therefore, if we can modify our process to create subfolder under a specific UserID that will help us serve better to client.

This can be achieved by updating this feature in IBM Inflight or by having some action at rule level.

This also requires BPN Rules to enable specifying the folders when Send action is FTP/SFTP. Currently we specify only PPID.

How will this idea be used?

The proposed idea will eliminate creation of multiple Inflight profiles for multiple folders with same partner details and will enable Implementers to add additional folders in future without creating additional profiles again.
