FA's Administration provides system administrators with tools to manage system preferences and advanced configurations and monitor system health and logs.


Set up different searches for data in FA Back

  • Extend certain search screens - extend certain search views by saving your search criteria for later use. You can save your search criteria only for yourself, or share them with other users.

  • Search data with SQL queries directly in the system - write SQL queries within the application to search for data from the database. The result of your query is shown in a table. You can save your queries for later use, and share your queries with other users. In addition, you can parameterize your queries to react to user input or information linked to the logged in user. Data modification with SQL is prevented.

  • Gather relevant data into dashboards - create dashboards to gather relevant data from different parts of the application into one screen. You can create and save their own private dashboards, or share dashboards with others based on user roles. Your dashboard can consist of saved search screens, a task list, or results of a saved SQL query.

Administer settings and preferences

  • Manage optional packages - install optional packages that extend the standard settings, preferences or workflows, but are not necessarily needed in each installation. Optional packages include for example optional asset classes and types and sample bookkeeping accounts and posting rules.

  • Manage application preferences and settings - control how certain aspects of the system behave through adjusting the available preferences or administering the available settings. For example, you can manage settings and preferences related to accounting, payments, and reconciliation.

  • Create business rules - Adjust business rules with XLS decision tables that have conditions and actions. Decision tables can be used, for example, to calculate transaction fees, change trade order status, initiate payments, and so on.

  • Manage and create scheduled activities - schedule certain activities (processes) in the system, when the system runs the action at the specified time. You can define your schedules with CRON syntax, and view, edit or delete scheduled activities in one place.

  • Configure standard integrations - configure your standard integrations related for example to Market Data Connector and Trading Connector directly in the system. In addition, you can import required certificates and keys (used to authenticate and verify parties when establishing the connection), or map data for external integrations to act as a link between two data structures (used for example when creating or updating security reference data).

  • Synchronize data between two FA instances - synchronise data between two FA instances to keep the test data up-to-date with production data, or to exchange updates between separate FA installations.

Track an audit trail of modifications, user actions and system events

  • Track changes made to certain data - track the changes made to certain data, including contacts, portfolios, securities, market data, transactions, trade orders, postings and certain system preferences. You can track the full change history of this data, allowing you to see who has changed what and when, and compare versions together to see the changes made.

  • Track user activity and system events - track what information users have viewed, opened or exported along with certain system events, such as report data and market price updates. Audit trailing is done in the background for each logged-in user and for certain system events. You can search for entries in the audit trail, and each audit trail entry includes a variety of details, such as user, time, and screen, providing you with details to replicate what has happened.

Manage all documents

  • Search, download, upload, modify and delete all documents - manage all documents and links to documents stored in the system. For non-administrative users, documents are only shown for the security, contact, portfolio, transaction or trade order they are linked to. You can search for all documents stored in the system, download them, upload new documents, rename existing documents, and delete documents.

  • Organize documents into folders and tag documents to categorize them - you can move documents from one folder to another, or tag documents to categorize them across folders.

  • Mass-delete documents - you can also mass-delete all documents matching your search criteria in one go.

  • Automatically scan uploaded documents for viruses - as an alternative, the system can scan uploaded documents for viruses. If a virus is found, the document upload is prevented. Enabling virus scanning requires additional setup and agreement with FA.

Manage system files

  • Manage files in specific directories - access certain system-level files and manually upload files to certain directories in the system. This is useful for example when resolving issues with file-based integrations, allowing you to re-upload a file to be processed again. In addition, you can re-upload failed files to retry processing them. You can manage files one-by-one, or delete and upload multiple files at once.

Monitor system health and browser through system logs

  • Monitor system statistics - track performance characteristics and technical metrics for specific aspects of the FA Platform, and view the statistics as charts. For example, you can view certain metrics for API requests, specific integrations, database performance and report calculation.

  • Monitor processes in FA applications – monitor processes that run in FA applications. You can see which processes have been running, how long they took, and if they were completed successfully.

  • View system logs - view and search system logs for different parts of the FA Platform.
