4.2.2. Creation of a gateway

To create a gateway, you have two main options:

  • Create the gateway from scratch.
  • Duplicate an existing gateway that you already created, or from the Babelway catalogue.

You can access this choice by clicking on Create a gateway in the gateways list screen, or directly from the channel detail screen.

Create a new gateway

To create a gateway, first you have to select the type of gateway that you want to use (Email, FTP, AS2, HTTP, ...).

Then you need to fill the parameters of the gateway and click on Create gateway. The parameters depend on the type of gateway selected. You can find a detailed explanation of every gateway type in the section on GatewayTypes..

When you are in the Channels section, and you reuse a gateway that is already used in other channels, you will have the choice of either to share the gateway, or to make a copy.
