CreateAgreement - AWS Transfer Family

CreateAgreement

Creates an agreement. An agreement is a bilateral trading partner agreement, or partnership, between an AWS Transfer Family server and an AS2 process. The agreement defines the file and message transfer relationship between the server and the AS2 process. To define an agreement, Transfer Family combines a server, local profile, partner profile, certificate, and other attributes.

The partner is identified with the PartnerProfileId, and the AS2 process is identified with the LocalProfileId.

Request Syntax

{ "AccessRole": "string", "BaseDirectory": "string", "Description": "string", "LocalProfileId": "string", "PartnerProfileId": "string", "ServerId": "string", "Status": "string", "Tags": [ { "Key": "string", "Value": "string" } ] }

Request Parameters

For information about the parameters that are common to all actions, see Common Parameters.

The request accepts the following data in JSON format.

AccessRole

With AS2, you can send files by calling StartFileTransfer and specifying the file paths in the request parameter, SendFilePaths. We use the file’s parent directory (for example, for --send-file-paths /bucket/dir/file.txt, parent directory is /bucket/dir/) to temporarily store a processed AS2 message file, store the MDN when we receive them from the partner, and write a final JSON file containing relevant metadata of the transmission. So, the AccessRole needs to provide read and write access to the parent directory of the file location used in the StartFileTransfer request. Additionally, you need to provide read and write access to the parent directory of the files that you intend to send with StartFileTransfer.
