Once you have navigated to the connections tab, you can choose your connection in the secondary navigation panel and edit the information as needed. The portal allows for full self-service configuration and management of your API access, FTP/SFTP/FTPS, AS2, and Command Line ToolWalMart hosted connections can also be created and tested under the Trading Partner Connections to ECGrid tab. Additional protocols are under development and will be made available in a future release, such as OFTP and AS4. 

*Please Note: The My Connections to ECGrid tab provides options for connecting your network and mailboxes to the Loren Data network, not your trading partners’. 


Under the AS2 tab, you can find information on Loren Data’s default AS2 profile and information on the top half of the page. The bottom half of the page allows you to upload your AS2 profile information and certificate.  

ECGrid’s smart and adaptive AS2 technology means we only require three fields to successfully connect to your AS2 profile. You must provide your AS2 ID, AS2 url, and AS2 certificate, then click on “Add AS2”:

Once you add your profile, you will see it active on this AS2 tab. From this point, you are able to edit and maintain your profile as necessary.

*Please note: If the ECGrid certificate that you are connecting to is expiring within the next 90 days, you can download the new one from this page. Our certificate renewal technology runs the new certificate in parallel with the current certificate, allowing you to update the certificate at your convenience. Once you upload the new ECGrid certificate, you must send a test or a file signing with the new certificate. This notifies our network that you have successfully uploaded the new certificate and we automatically switch your profile to the new certificate on our end.
