Question / Problem:
How to allow export of the ALERT KEY AUTO SELECT (AKAS) to HOST in Confirm Application?
Answer / Solution:
CTM introduced a new value ‘AKAS’ as of Aug 2019 for the SettlementInstructionsSourceIndicator.
Optitrade Confirm has the capability to send this value to host or suppress it. This is a configurable setting in ConfimPluginConfig.xml.
Optitrade Confirm uses the alloc_detail row to export the SettlementInstructionsSourceIndicator
If you are using version 188.8.131.52 or higher you can configure this setting as following in the ConfirmPluginConfig.xml as below.
1. Take a backup of ConfirmPluginConfig.xml
2. In ConfirmPluginConfig.xml, under Host ID="HOST", Add the setting
<SettlementInstructionsSourceIndicator value="AKAS" mapto="A" /> or
<SettlementInstructionsSourceIndicator value="AKAS" mapto="O" /> or
<SettlementInstructionsSourceIndicator value="AKAS" mapto="AKAS" />
In case you are on a lower version of Confirm, please contact email@example.com so we can assist you with your version.
