Sample scripts are provided as-is with no warranty of fitness for a particular purpose. These scripts are solely intended to demonstrate techniques for accomplishing common tasks. Additional script logic and error-handling may need to be added to achieve the desired results in your specific environment.

Chrysler's e-Business Messaging Exchange (EBMX) enables the exchange of documents (typically EDI and XML) between Chrysler and their trading partners.

Robo-FTP provides all the functionality needed to implement a secure, reliable, automated connection to Chrysler EBMX using HTTPS.

While this sample script was written specifically for EBMX, the techniques demonstrated can be used for automating any HTTP POSTs.

You must first acquire the hostname, username, and password from Chrysler. You will use this information in two places:

  • Configure a site called "ebmx" in the configurator and store the username and password there.
  • Set the variables at the top of the file.

Once you have created the ebmx site and entered the credentials this example script will perform a loopback, uploading a file your outbox which will then be routed to your inbox, where it will be picked up and downloaded.

This script requires Robo-FTP 3.7 to function.
