NewUser and Edit User Window Fields

You are viewing TT User Setup Version 7.17 and higher. For earlier versions, click here

This topic describes the New User and Edit User window settings. The settings are organized into the following categories:

User Settings

User Settings contains the user's basic information. These settings display for all user types.

Note: Some settings may be unavailable based upon your administrator permissions (e.g., Sell Side Administrator, non-X_TRADER ASP Administrator).

Fields/Button Description
Login
Username

The Universal Login ID used to log into a TT application (e.g., JDOE)

Note: Usernames are limited to 11 characters.

Display name An identifier associated with the username that appears in grid displays to help identify the user (e.g., John Doe).
Group (Optional)/Company Group: Identifies the user’s group name. A group consists of multiple exchange traders and/or TTORDs trading in a non-X_TRADER ASP environment, and may reflect some aspect of the traders (e.g., Energy). Group also determines which TT User Setup administrators can manage which users.

Company: Identifies the user’s buy-side firm when trading in the X_TRADER ASP environment

Select Group Used to select the user’s group

Note: This button is disabled in the X_TRADER ASP environment.

Password / Confirm password The user's login password (e.g., 12345678).

Note: Password fields only appear in the New User window before a user has been saved.

Generate Password Allows the system to generate the user’s password

Note: When editing users, the Generate Password button changes to “Password”. Clicking the button opens a new window where you can generate a new password.

Active Activates the user's login (Default). Uncheck this field if you would like to deactivate a user’s login so the user cannot log in.
Force logoff Determines whether the user can shut down X_TRADER and reclaim an X_TRADER license when the user exceeds their maximum number of logins.

If unchecked, the user cannot kill an X_TRADER connection. (Default)

Example: When enabled, a user who leaves X_TRADER running at work and tries to log in later at home would receive the option to select and kill one of his X_TRADER connections prior to logging into X_TRADER.

Never lock out due to inactivity Prevents the user from being locked out after being inactive.
Locked Out Indicates whether the user is currently locked out. Uses can get locked out when they exceed the password locking rules, the number of failed attempts, or the days of inactivity.
Password never expires Determines whether there is a time limit enabled on the user’s login password.

If checked, the user’s password does not expire. (Default)

In a X_TRADER ASP environment, a broker administrator can enable this setting for traders in the broker company, and not for buy-side users or for the brokers themselves. In X_TRADER ASP, this setting is unchecked by default (passwords are set to expire).

Two-factor authentication Enables two-factor authentication for a user login. If enabled, users can receive a text message or email containing an authentication code when attempting to login. In addition to a password, users must provide this code when logging into X_TRADER®, X_RISK®, and TT User Setup.

Note: This setting can only be enabled for a user when it is enabled first in the System Settings.

SMS Number Sets the SMS (text message) number for the user to receive an authentication code when logging into X_TRADER®, X_RISK®, and TT User Setup.

An SMS number is required when two-factor authentication is enabled for the user (i.e., the Two-factor authentication checkbox is checked) and the SMS option is enabled for the system.

Note: Numbers outside the U.S. must be entered in "+<countycode><number>" format (e.g., +651234567).

CME Market Data Access

Sets a user as grandfathered and/or covered under a netting agreement for billable CME Product Groups:

  • Grandfathered user checkboxes: Click the checkboxes next to a CME product group to indicate whether the user is grandfathered for market data access for this group. These users will have a 50% discount on the market data fees for 2015. The CME migration waiver will need to be collected by the FCM. By default, this option is turned off. After an upgrade to 7.17.41 and prior to 1/1/2015, broker administrators in X_TRADER ASP need to enable this setting for grandfathered users in order to report their market data access correctly to CME.
  • Netting agreement checkboxes: Click the checkboxes next to a CME product group to indicate whether the user has a CME market data netting agreement for this group. These options can be used to flag users that participate in the CME’s netting program. CME will bill those clients directly. TT still reports their access to the exchange, but reports them as non-billable. By default this option is turned off. Broker and buy-side administrators in X_TRADER ASP need to enable this setting after an upgrade to 7.17.41 and prior to 1/1/2015 for users with netting agreements.
  • Netting program participant: Sets the netting program participant organization name (typically your company name).

    Netting participants in the list are organizations that have legacy netting agreements with CME and will be charged directly by the exchange. Enter a new netting program participant to the list or select an existing one that the user belongs to. Selecting None indicates that the user is not covered under a netting agreement with CME.

    Note: If you enter a netting program participant name, that name is saved and appears in the list for all subsequent users in your environment.

In a X_TRADER ASP environment, this setting is checked and enabled for broker administrators by default. The broker administrator can enabled/disable RFQ for buy-side users connecting to the broker’s TT Gateways via X_TRADER. However, a broker administrator cannot change the RFQ setting for their own user profile.

Note: See X_TRADER Help for additional information about X_TRADER Quoting functionality.

Avoid orders that cross Determines the default behavior for crossed orders.When an order is submitted, changed, or canceled/replaced, this setting is first applied to any in-flight orders not yet acknowledged by the TT Gateway. Then, the setting is applied to the user’s resting orders on the opposite side of the outbound order. Order quantities and position in queue are not considered.

By default, this option is unchecked and order routing behavior is “user controlled”.

Note: See Eurex Gateway in the Help Library if you would like additional information.

Account changes on fills

Determines whether the user can update the account number on a fill.

If checked, the user can update the account number. (Default)

Note: If the user’s customer defaults are restricted, then only accounts that are pre-defined in the customer defaults are available.

Note: When applying account-based risk checking, TT does not recommend checking the Account changes on fills allowed option until the user is using X_TRADER 7.17 or later. If a user with a pre-7.17 version of X_TRADER is allowed to change an account on a fill, the account number on the fill will not be updated in all TT products (including the gateways where account-based risk checking is done). This could lead to discrepancies between what is displayed in client applications and how risk is actually being calculated.

Note: When this option is enabled, users with X_TRADER 7.17 or later can modify the account on a fill, and this update will be processed as a part of account-based risk on the gateways. Note that no risk check actually takes place on the modification; therefore changing the account could cause an account to go over its limits. However, any subsequent orders will be risk checked based on the modified fills.

Submitting orders with undefined accounts (if applicable)

Determines whether the user can submit orders using any account or only accounts defined in TT User Setup.

If unchecked, the TT Gateway rejects orders with accounts that are not defined in TT User Setup (Default).

If checked, the user can submit orders with any account, including accounts not defined in TT User Setup unless accounts are restricted in TT User Setup Account Permissions.
