When using Generic Exchange (File, FTP, sFTP) to process inbound custom documents, if the start
and end position parameters are not set, the transport parameters Directory name Format or
Filename Format are used to identify the partner.

1) Assuming you are configured to process messages for a custom document, navigate to Partners
-> Trading Partners -> <trading partner> -> Capabilities.

2) Click Custom link for Document Protocol.

3) Click Document Protocol Revision Details icon.

4) Change ImplementationClass setting to
oracle.tip.adapter.b2b.document.custom.CustomIDocumentPlugin and apply.

5) Navigate back to the Document Protocol Revision Details page.

6) Click the custom document type.

7) Click Update icon for the custom document type definition.

8) Verify these document parameters are not set:

Start position of Identification for non-XML Document
End position of Identification for non-XML Document

9) Revalidate the agreement and deploy a new configuration.

10) Restart B2B.

11) Send a message through and observe the error in $ORACLE_HOME/ip/log/b2b/b2b.log.
