Installation Notes

  1. Upgrades
    1. If upgrading from a 7.8.x Order Routing FIX Adapter to a 7.17.x FIX Adapter version with more than one FIX client user that is configured with a Synthetic SE gateway login, all previously submitted staged orders must be deleted and each FIX client user must be configured with the same direct trader Synthetic SE gateway login prior to upgrading. Additionally, each X_TRADERĀ® user that shares the order book with those FIX client users must be configured with the same direct trader Synthetic SE gateway login.

    2. Upgrades from pre-7.8.x versions of FIX Adapter must take place over a weekend and sessions must be reset prior to the first startup after the upgrade. Historical fills from before the upgrade will be unavailable.

    3. If your current FIX Adapter is 32-bit running on a 64-bit operating system and you would like to upgrade to the 64-bit FIX Adapter, you must uninstall your existing version and perform a clean install of the 64-bit version.

    4. Customers should contact their Technical Account Manager for data migration assistance prior to upgrading from FIX Adapter versions prior to 7.6.0.

Enhancements

  1. New Gateway Support
    1. Added bias settings for LSE in FACT. (Ref 227892)

  2. Orders / Fills
    1. Expanded the data sent in FIX tag 16103 (FFT3) for Eurex algo child orders to include the full Regulatory ID sent to the exchange by the Eurex Gateway. Requires Eurex Gateway 7.17.45. (Ref 228133)

Fixes

  1. General
    1. Fixed an issue which resulted in FIX Adapter sent tag 18201 (NoGatewayStatus) = 0 in Gateway Status (UAR) messages for price sessions. (Ref 228138)

Known Issues

  1. General
    1. FIX Adapter can fail to dynamically pick up a newly added TTORD Gateway Login and account from a 7.4.x version of TT User Setup when more than one TTORD Gateway Login per gateway are assigned to the FIX client user and "Available to User" is not checked, resulting in order rejections when attempting to route via the new account. Note that this issue does not happen when using a 7.17.x version of TT User Setup. (Ref 227769)

  2. Orders / Fills
    1. If a 7.17.x Order Routing FIX Adapter's FIX Client user is configured with a direct trader Gateway Login and routes an order to a pre-7.17.x TT Gateway with an account number that is mapped to a TTORD Gateway Login in TT User Setup, subsequent change or cancel attempts on that order by the FIX Client user will get rejected. Note that this issue does not happen when routing to a 7.17.x TT Gateway version. (Ref 227010)
