Important Notes

If you are currently using TT Update to manage TT Client applications and you have not already added TTUpdateEnabled=1 to the TTUserSetupServer.ini file on the TT User Setup servers, you must do so prior to upgrading. Failing to add this parameter will disable TT Update for all TT client applications.

Why Should I Upgrade?

This release includes performance enhancements and the ability for company administrators to request a more or less restrictive "Days an application can be trusted" and "Days before password expires" setting for their company. These improvements are available without upgrading the TT User Setup Client. This release also introduces support for the new SGX_OTC market and is required for users that want to connect to that market. For information about fixes and enhancements in the previous release, refer to the TT User Setup 7.17.68 release notes.

Installation Notes

When TT Update is not installed on the TT User Setup client workstation, you must manually install a supported TT User Setup client. When TT Update is installed on the TT User Setup client workstation, TT Update will automatically update the TT User Setup client to match the TT User Setup server. The TT User Setup 7.17.68 server is ONLY compatible with TT User Setup 7.17.0.520, 7.17.10, 7.17.12, 7.17.13, 7.17.20-7.17.24. 7.17.30, 7.17.31, 7.17.40-7.17.42, 7.17.50, and 7.17.60-7.17.69 clients. The TT User Setup 7.17.69 client is not compatible with pre-7.17.69 TT User Setup servers.

To use the latest features, you should use the latest version of the client and server. Additionally, when the system is set to use two-factor authentication via SMS, all TT User Setup clients that will be used to edit user or system 2-factor authentication features must also be upgraded to 7.17.40 or higher. Clients that fail to upgrade will receive error messages or shut down when editing SMS related settings.

For more information about TT Update, refer to the TT Update Help. For more information about installing TT User Setup, refer to the TT User Setup System Administration Online Help.

When upgrading from previous versions that used either SMS or Email-based 2-factor authentication, users that had the "Two-factor authentication" option checked will be set to Email or SMS, based on the system-level two-factor authentication setting.
  • If the system is set to Email-based two-factor authentication at the time of upgrade, all users with the "Two-factor authentication" option checked will be set to Email.
  • If the system is set to SMS-based two-factor authentication at the time of upgrade, all users with the "Two-factor authentication" option checked will be set to SMS.
  • If the system is not configured to use two-factor authentication at the time of upgrade, all users with the "Two-factor authentication" option checked will be set to None.
When upgrading from previous versions, users that had the NYSE Liffe or OSE product group permissions allowed will be allowed or blocked as described the What's New in TT User Setup?.

Enhancements

  1. New Gateway Support
    1. Added support for a new Gateway, SGX_OTC. Customers wishing to connect to this Gateway must be on this version of TT User Setup or later. (Ref 232092)

  2. Server
    1. Broker and Buy-side firms can now request a more or less restrictive "Days an application can be trusted" and "Days before password expires" setting. By default, passwords expire every 90 days, and after 5 days, users that are required to use two-factor authentication must re-authenticate. To request a different default for your firm, please contact TT Support. (Ref 231378)

  3. Users
    1. Added an option to require users with Generated Gateway Logins to manually log into each Gateway (using the Settings->Login Gateways window in X_TRADER). By default this checkbox is checked, meaning that the user continues to automatically log into all Gateways. Unchecking this option can decrease the time it takes X_TRADER® to open. (Ref 231526)

    2. Brokers can now assign users from different buy-side firms to the same account, if needed. (Ref 231539)

Fixes

  1. Admin User
    1. When Group Administrators that have the "Manage Accounts" option disabled copy users, the Gateway Logins for those users are now not "avail to user" regardless of the copied user's settings. (Ref 231637)

  2. Client
    1. Updated the email field to accept email addresses that include periods and special characters in the domain name. (Ref 231938)

Known Issues

  1. Reports
    1. Logging onto X_TRADER® increments the TT API entry in the TT Product Version/User Usage report by two. TT API should not be listed at all unless the client specifically logged into TT API. (Ref 220131)

    2. The "Most recent X_TRADER® Version" report appears to list multiple entries for the same user and IP address. However, the duplicate entry is actually the X_STUDY® version and can be disregarded. (Ref 227295)

  2. Server
    1. FIX Adapter Clients with Live login allowed and TT SIM login allowed both unchecked cannot log into FIX Adapter servers. Future versions will not require either of these checkboxes to log into FIX Adapters. The workaround is to check one of these checkboxes for FIX Adapter Clients. (Ref 222720)

  3. Users
    1. In 7.X ASP (broker-side only), the new Generated Gateway Logins "Auto-login" checkbox defaults to unchecked instead of checked when using pre-7.17.69 clients to assign Generated Gateway Login access to users. Users with generated TTADM XXX access that have the auto-login checkbox unchecked will need to select gateway(s) each time they log into X_TRADER® or X_RISK. To ensure the Auto-login checkbox is checked, upgrade to the latest TT User Setup client and check the option. The Buy-side web client is unaffected as it does not have the option to disable auto-login for generated Gateway logins. (Ref 232356)
