Using Version Control Rules
You are viewing TT User Setup Version 7.17 and higher. For earlier versions, click here
TT User Setup allows a Super Administrator (non-X_TRADER ASP) or TT Adminstrator (X_TRADER ASP) to define rules for which versions of TT software can be used within a trading environment. By using version rules, you can, for example, prevent potential issues related to logging in with X_TRADER® applications that are too old.
For example, to reject logins from X_TRADER versions prior to version 22.214.171.124, you would create a rule that specified that the X_TRADER application must be greater than or equal to 126.96.36.199.
Note: Broker Administrators can edit version rules for their own X_TRADER and X_RISK users only.
When creating rules, consider the following:
- A user can have only one rule per application.
- Rules configured for a specific user take precedent over rules configured for all users.
