ALERT KEY AUTO SELECT (AKAS)

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 5.6.0.13 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 customercare.optitrade@kofax.com so we can assist you with your version.
