PurposeThis procedure provides instructions for creating an authorisation for Test and Training (T&T) purposes. To create an authorisation, create an Authorisation to Receive, which is the authorisation that you (Own BIC) send to a correspondent (Correspondent BIC) to enable that correspondent to send messages to you.
You can also create an authorisation using an existing authorisation. If you create an authorisation using an existing one, then the Relationship Management application uses the values of the existing authorisation as default values for the new authorisation. You can keep those values or modify them if necessary.
RMA Plus enables you to define a granular authorisation, which specifies the types of messages within a service that a correspondent can send you. This capability is defined by the service, and the available granularity levels for that service are defined in the application service profile. A non-granular authorisation covers all types of messages.
For more information about what happens to the authorisation after you have created it, see The Creation and Activation of Authorisations.
Users and permissionsYou can create Test and Training authorisations when the Create Auth function is assigned to you in the Relationship Mgmt application.

To specify a validity period for the authorisation after it becomes active, select Timebound Authorisation in the New Authorisation to Receive Details window. Then, specify the date range in the Valid from and Valid until fields.
Valid dates are between 01 January 2006 and 31 December 2037, inclusive.
The dates are stored in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), with their times set to 00:00:01 and 23:59:59. The format of the date is defined by the Date configuration parameter in the System Management application.NoteWhen you base a new authorisation on an existing one, the New Authorisation to Receive Details window shows the same details as in the existing one. You can use those details, or modify them if necessary. The comments from the existing authorisation are not included, so you can enter new comments for the new authorisation.
For a granular authorisation, specify the types of messages that may be transmitted between both parties. The available granularity levels for a service are defined in the application service profile.
Enter comments about the authorisation (optional).
From themenu, select .The Add Authorisation to Receive dialog box appears.
Assign one of the following statuses to the authorisation:
Draft - Save the authorisation for future
The Relationship Management application saves the authorisation with the preparation status "Draft". If the authorisation exists and is active, then it stays active and gains the preparation status "Draft" in addition to its external status.
Enabled - Activate the new version of the
authorisation to make it the Current version.
This option is available if your user profile has Bypass Approval set to "Yes" for the Create Auth function.
The Relationship Management application saves the authorisation with external status, "Enabled", and activates it so that it becomes the Current authorisation. The date on which the authorisation becomes active is the Issued Date, and it is stored and displayed in GMT.
Pending Approval - Request approval for
the new version of the authorisation.
The Relationship Management application saves the authorisation with the preparation status, "Pending Approval", which requires another user to approve it. If the authorisation exists and is active, then it stays active and gains the preparation status "Pending Approval" in addition to its external status.
- Draft - Save the authorisation for future editing.
