You can configure the following behavior from the Settings page. These settings apply to every partnership in your Stedi account.

Inbound AS2

This functionality is available on all plans.

You can enable Inbound AS2 if you need to receive files from trading partners using an AS2 connection. This isn’t necessary if you are only sending outbound files over AS2.

Remote SFTP/FTPS static IP address

This functionality is available on all plans.

Enabling a static IP address ensures that your Remote SFTP/FTPS connections always use the same source IP address when communicating with remote servers. You can share this IP address with partners who require this additional level of access control.

If your partners don’t require a static IP address, we recommend leaving this setting as disabled.

Automatic data removal

This functionality is available on the Enterprise plan.

Artifacts refer to the transaction and file execution payloads from files Stedi has processed. They contain the actual input/output transaction data in EDI, JSON, or another format. Artifacts do not include the metadata about a transaction or file execution, such as whether it was processed successfully.

You may want Stedi to remove artifacts after a certain timeframe - for example, to comply with your company’s PII/PHI retention policies. You can configure the artifact retention period in Automatic data removal.

Once you set a retention period, Stedi deletes artifacts after the retention window has passed. This affects both existing and future data in your account.

For example, if you set a retention period of 30 days and process a file today, Stedi will delete the artifact after 30 total days have elapsed. Stedi will also delete any artifact that was created more than 30 days prior. Stedi deletes historical files outside the retention window immediately upon configuring the retention period. In this example, Stedi would not delete an artifact that was processed less than 30 days prior.

You cannot recover deleted artifacts.
