External Test Connectivity
The External Test environments are separate, non-production environments, and require distinct connectivity. The following forms of connectivity are supported:
- ENCORE Access
- Batch connectivity via Connect:Direct/NDM or SFTP
- Real-time connectivity via MQ
It is OCC's policy to connect only non-production external party environments to External Test.
For new test batch or real-time connectivity, please complete the External Test Technical Specifications form and email the form to Technical Certification Services. External parties looking to establish and/or verify connectivity to External Test should reach out to Technical Certification Services.
Use of the External Testing environments is strictly limited to the specific parameters of a previously scheduled testing effort with defined business objectives, testing partner(s) and start/end timeframes, and extends to all external facing components of OCC systems including, but not limited to, External ENCORE, DDS and MQ connectivity.
