Release notes


Successful tests certify the correctness of the files on the Test Platform. As the Test Platform is an environment close to production, final tests within the productive environment are essential. Zürcher Kantonalbank grants no certification for successful tests.
You will receive a camt.052, camt.053 or camt.054 response message (booking notifications) if the provision of the required messages is activated under Settings > Data provision.
The value for display control (CND, CWD, SIA, NOA) in the pain.001 has no impact on the degree of detail of the camt messages. A camt.054 with batch notification is always provided with detailed data.
Once you have successfully initialised your EBICS access, you can download the test results via the EBICS order type "XTD", which is specific to the Test Platform. The provided ZIP archive contains, in addition to the submitted file, the test report and the pain.002 status report. You can also use the order type "Z01" to download the pain.002 status report, which simulates the process in the production environment.
The time it takes to process files with only a small number of payment records (transactions) is shorter than the time necessary to update the table after the upload. This is why the final processing status is immediately displayed. The processing of files with a large number of payment records may take a while. As the file list is not automatically updated, you have to manually refresh the page to have the changed processing status displayed. Use the “Refresh data” button below the list. Or use the reload button of your browser or the corresponding keyboard shortcut (in general F5).
This may be due to the following two reasons:
  1. To synchronise the line and column numbers, it is important to open the XML file using a tool which displays the file in an unchanged way. This is the case if text editors or most of the XML editors are used. However, on many systems it is the Internet Explorer which is used as the standard program for opening XML files. To facilitate the readability of XML files, the Internet Explorer also displays line breaks and indents which are not part of the file. As a consequence, the line and column information cannot be used in this program. We recommend using a text editor or a special XML editor to open the file (e.g. Notepad++).
  2. The position information does not reference the element which the reported error refers to. If you use a debit account in a credit transfer, which has not been configured in the account list, the test platform reports the error „Unknown account“, AC01 (IncorrectAccountNumber). This message is issued for the element /Document/CstmrCdtTrfInitn/PmtInf[n]/DbtrAcct and it is this element's line and column which is referred to under file position. Depending on the display type, the real unknown IBAN may be displayed some columns or lines further down.
