Disabling unencrypted HTTP communication

For many years we are supporting the encrypted access to the WMACCESS website via HTTPS as well as the safe login procedure parallel to the unencrypted HTTP communication.

The unencrypted transmission of sensitive information, such as the WMACCESS username and the associated password, will be deactivated as of 18.06.2017. HTTP will be automatically redirected to the encrypted connection.

In the first place this concerns the URLs for logging on and using the WMACCESS application to query WM data. On the login page of WMACCESS we will remove the unencrypted login option ("standard login procedure").

Test:

Successful: You are viewing this page through an HTTPS connection. Your browser is not affected by the announced action.

Problems using HTTPS?

Should you not be able to access the homepage and the WMACCESS web application due to technical restrictions with HTTPS, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Why do we perform this step only in the year 2017:

Unfortunately, very old browsers (such as Internet Explorer 6) or older operating systems (eg Windows XP) were used in the financial industry in the past few years. However, these browsers or operating systems only support older and unsafe protocols (SSLv2 / SSLv3) or do not provide support for modern secure cipher suites. Users of these platforms had to and so far could use the HTTP protocol.

Preview:

Starting from the 7th of August 2017, the entire Internet presence under our domain wmaccess.com will automatically and exclusively use HTTPS.

Display issuer name for the issuer number in MR030 & HD051

In March 2012, we had already made an improvement to the wmView detail display, in order to display the current issuer name (MD031) directly to the three WM fields GD240, GD241, GD245.

This has been implemented for two additional fields:

  • MR030 Superordinate issuer number
  • HD051 Issuer number of the controlling company
Display of the issuer name to the right of the issuer number 709535 in field HD051

Display of the issuer name to the right of the issuer number 709535 in field HD051

New search functionality in query profile (M) Issuer-Data

A search with an issuer number (MREMI) or a securities identification (WKN, ISIN) in section M / issuer data always provides the complete history for the issuer found in the hit list for further selection.

Example WKN 402010 / ISIN CA683078DS56 (Issuer number 470049)

Search in Issuer-Data for ISIN CA683078DS56:

Search for Issuer of ISIN CA683078DS56

Search for Issuer of ISIN CA683078DS56

Excerpt of the hit list for issuer 470049:

Hit list for Issuer 470049 of ISIN CA683078DS56.

For the issuer of ISIN CA683078DS56 three matches were found. Sorting is ascending by reference identification number (BID, not included in the screenshot). The BID represents the so called generation number. The current Issuer record contains the lowest generation number and is therefore in the first place.

The availability of historical data allows among others the representation of the different names of the issuer over time or even a changed issuer domicile or issuer country.

However, there are also applications in which you want to directly view the current data for an issuer. We've created a new search functionality for this purpose:

Exclude historical data ☑

Effective immediately this new search criteria is available in query profile issuer data (M) directly below the issuer number (MREMI):

Search with enabled check box for the exclusion of historical data:

Search for Issuer ISIN CA683078DS56 with exclusion of historical data

Search for Issuer ISIN CA683078DS56 with exclusion of historical data

The search with the exclusion of historical data will find only one result and therefore takes the user directly to the detail display.

Detail display current issuer data for issuer 470049:

Detail display of current issuer data for issuer number 470049 (issuer for ISIN CA683078DS56)

Detail display current issuer data for issuer number 470049.
(Issuer of ISIN CA683078DS56)

Check this box to search only on the current issuer records only. Upon entering the query screen the checkbox is not activated - this means the search will continue to run as before and display the full history of the issuer.

New search functionality: "does not contain"

The possibilities for a search in WM fields with a range of values (for example Country-, Currency or Status fields) will be extended shortly (took place on 12.05.2016). Until now a search was limited to match with the given criteria:

Previous search functionality

Performed search:
An income record must have the data field ED001 (payment status) with a value of either 1, 2 or 3 to be treated as result.

In the future, a separate selection box (combo box) directly below the fast entry option allows to specify how the entered criteria is applied on a search. You can choose between three options.

Option 1: contains

Option 1: contains

This option corresponds to the previous search logic. Data is only selected if the data field matches one of the specified search criteria.

 

Option 2: does not contain

Option 2: does not contain

New search functionality:
Data is only selected if the data field is assigned a value that does not meet the specified criteria.

 

Option 3: does not contain (Select even if field is empty)

Option 3: does not contain (Select even if field is empty)

New search functionality:
Similar to the previous option, but also selects data if the field is empty.

 

Specifically, the third option may be very interesting for non-mandatory or fields with yes / no values. For example, the GD447B field for EU passport (query profile Investment Fund Characteristics) contains the following field description:

EU PASSPORT:
------------
This field is populated by 'J' (Yes) if the fund in question
fulfils the requirements of EU Directive 85/611/EEC.
If not, no entry is made.

Now let's see the results of the three possible options for a search with criteria "J = Yes" and determine which option works best to identify Funds which do not fulfill with the EU Passport requirements:

  • contains
    Result: Securities with GD447B = Yes and thus fulfill the requirements of the EU passport.
  • does not contain
    Result: Since only "J" and "N" in field GD447B are possible only securities with value "N" are displayed. These securities were typically once delivered with "J" and changed or corrected at a later date to "N".
  • does not contain (Select even if field is empty)
    Result: Extends the result of the previous option to securities where the field is empty. Because of the remark regarding missing marking with "N" this option should be used for the above formulated desired result.

Recommendation for querying (particularly historical) income data

To query not canceled income payments (for example deemed distribution income of an investment fund), we recommend the use of search criteria ED001 - payment status with the third option does not contain (Select even if field is empty) and the following criteria:

  • S - Cancellation of entire announcement
  • T - Cancellation of entire announcement due to ISIN change
  • U - Cancellation due to duplicate/renewed publication
