Creating a New Gateway Login through the Users Window

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

Gateway logins are the MemberGroupTrader IDs used to log into TT Gateways. Each gateway login can have its own account numbers and risk limits.

Note: For more information about configuring Gateways Logins, refer to the User Login and Risk Administration Reference Manual.

When creating a gateway login through the Gateway Login window, you must manually assign the gateway login to a user. However, when created via the Users window, the gateway login is automatically assigned to the user you are editing or creating.

Note: For a detailed description on creating a gateway login through the Gateway Logins window, refer to the Creating a New Gateway Login topic.
