Prevent Datapower from generating negative MDN for data errors

We use IBM datapower to integrate with external third party systems. Few of our third party application systems resend the messages automatically when a negative MDN is received from datapower. This feature is helpful when there are network glitches.

However even when there is a data error, datapower is generating negative MDN to partner and partner application system is re-sending the same error message continuously and this is causing continuous failures in datapower end. This is causing wrong communication to the partners, unnecessary work for both partners and team, and it is more difficult to do connectivity testing when there are AS2 changes with partners.

It would be good if it can be customized to prevent datapower generating negative MDNs for data errors. If data is successfully decrpyted and signature is verified successfully on an inbound message, then negative MDN should not be sent if there is a data error (Parse error, Dynamic Execution Error etc)
