TT User Setup

Setting Up a TT FIX Adapter Server (non-X_TRADER ASP)

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

Use TT User Setup to configure a user as a TT FIX Adapter server, which logs into one or more TT Gateways on behalf of all its FIX clients. You must configure the FIX Adapter server user as either a Drop Copy or Order Routing FIX Adapter server.

  • Order Routing

    The order routing configuration type allows FIX Adapter client users to use all the functionality offered by the TT FIX Adapter Server. For more information on how order routing functionality is used by a TT FIX Adapter Server, refer to the Configure: Order Routing chapter in the TT FIX Adapter System Administration Manual.

  • Drop Copy

    The Drop Copy configuration type allows FIX Adapter client users to use all the functionality offered by the TT FIX Adapter Server, except for routing orders. For more information on how a TT FIX Adapter Server uses drop copy functionality, refer to the Configure: Drop Copy chapter in the TT FIX Adapter System Administration Manual.

    The following table describes how drop copy gateway logins determine viewing privileges.

    Gateway LoginViewing Privileges
    TTADM/XXX/VIEWIndicates the orders and fills for all FIX Adapter client user's gateway logins are visible to the TT FIX Adapter Server.

    <Member ID>/XXX/VIEW

    Indicates the orders and fills for all FIX Adapter client user's gateway logins with the same Member ID are visible to the TT FIX Adapter Server.

    <Member ID>/<Group ID>/VIEW

    Indicates the orders and fills for all FIX Adapter client user's gateway logins with the same Member ID and Group ID are visible to the TT FIX Adapter Server.

Additionally, you must designate the credentials (called gateway logins) that the FIX Adapter server uses to log into the TT Gateways. TT FIX Adapter server logs into each TT Gateway once and acts on behalf of all FIX Adapter client users.

Note: The TT FIX Adapter Server must be able to connect to the Gateways to which a related FIX Client is able to connect, and it must be able to view the orders and fills of any FIX Client connecting to the FIX Adapter.

For a detailed description of the various types of logins used in a TT environment, refer to the TT User Login and Risk Administration Reference Guide.
