Refusing Document-Type Updates
Viewing or Configuring the Global Refuse Update Option
Viewing or Configuring the Refuse Update Option for an Individual Document Type
Territories that are connected by a territory gateway connection automatically exchange and apply updates to the document types that they are configured to exchange. For example, if territory A is configured to receive a document type "CancelOrder" from territory B, and an administrator in either territory modifies that document type, the change is automatically propagated to the other territory.
If you want your territory gateway to block document type changes from the remote territory, you can enable the Refuse Document Type Updates option. When this option is enabled and the remote territory publishes a change to a document types, the following occurs:
*The document type change is rejected by the territory gateway and the document type is marked "out of sync."
*An alert is written to the log file associated with the Broker Server on which the territory gateway is running.
*The territory gateway halts inbound traffic (that is, it stops retrieving all documents from the remote territory).
When a territory gateway enters this condition, it will not begin accepting documents again until one of the following occurs:
*The territory gateway's document type is updated to match the one on the remote territory.
*The remote territory modifies its document type to match the one on this territory gateway.
You can block document-type updates globally or by individual document type.
