Foreword
A word about security
CreationOnline is available over the public internet or Clearstream Banking's private internet network
(extranet). Access is restricted to authorised users only and is controlled by the use of cryptographic
smart cards or P12 credentials files. Security is further enhanced by the employment of strong
cryptographic authentication and digital signatures and the encryption of all communication.
Full instructions for the installation of the smart card reader and the use of personal identification
number (PIN) and passwords are delivered with the smart card(s) and card reader.
For security reasons, you are recommended to use smart card access as the primary access method.
The P12 option is provided in case, for technical reasons, smart card access cannot be used.
Note: Unchanged credentials will expire naturally after two years but users can change their own
credentials at any time.
Hardware and software requirements
You can access CreationOnline from any computer running a supported Windows, Java and Internet
Explorer version. You require an internet connection. For more details, please refer to the
CreationOnline Technical Requirements document.
CreationOnline is designed to convert between SWIFT, browser and HTML formats, so that reports can
be requested or displayed in either format. Users will not be required to employ the same message
format as their counterparty in any transaction and customers can choose to use any or all of the
formats.
Where to get assistance
Help with the use of CreationOnline is directly available in two ways:
• from the integrated online help information system and
• from Clearstream Banking’s Customer Services and Connectivity Services units.
Online help
CreationOnline incorporates comprehensive online help information. On each page, you have access to
two levels of help information, as follows:
• In the navigator panel, you can use the Help command to obtain information on all aspects of
CreationOnline.
• On each page or form, you can use the Help menu to display specific help information for the
current activity.

Logging on to CreationOnline
As a licensed subscriber, you may optionally have received a smart card and, under separate cover, a
unique PIN code to enable you to connect to the system.
Note: Before you connect to the system for the first time, please make sure that you have read and fully
understand any installation, connection and/or release documentation supplied with your
CreationOnline package and with any external application (for example, for your smart card).
On initial connection, your local system administrator must be the first to log on and must
perform various initial tasks to make the system available to local users (see “System
administrator’s tasks” on page 1-3).
When you open CreationOnline, the system presents the Log on page offering a choice of logon method:
• using a smart card, DLL file and password; or
• using a P12 credentials file and password.
By default, on successful logon, you are presented with the CreationOnline page with the current alerts
listed across the workspace in the alerts panel.
Note: The first time you log on, you must use the temporary password provided. You are recommended
to define your own password immediately.
If you enter an invalid password and/or user credentials file, the system displays an error
message accordingly. After three invalid logon attempts, you are logged out and your web
browser session is locked.

Using wild card characters in queries
On some pages, some of the fields in which you can enter search criteria are marked with an asterisk
(*) to left and/or right.
This indicates that the asterisk (*) as a wild card character will automatically be appended or
prepended in these fields to request that all items that contain the string of characters associated with
the wild card character are included in the results of your search.
The following examples illustrate the use of the wild card character in a field entry:
• ABC* will include all items in which this field contains a value beginning with ABC.
• *ABC will include all items in which this field contains a value ending with ABC.
• *ABC* will include all items in which this field contains a value that includes ABC anywhere
between the first and last characters.
Working with displayed list views
Local Action menus each contain a Query command that you can use, where appropriate, to define a set
of filtering criteria in order to locate as closely as possible a particular target. You can save such a set of
criteria as a query “view” which you can re-use in other queries.
The results of your query are displayed in a list view and you can select one or more to be the subject(s)
of the commands available in the Action menu. Standard Shift+click and Ctrl+click selection can be
used.
A note about queries
A query can yield very high numbers of results and CreationOnline will present 50 results per page up
to a maximum of 20 pages. Each page carries count and time information at the right-hand end of the
menu bar. You can use left and right arrows in the menu bar to page forward and backward through the
list as required.
If your query operation can yield more than 1000 results, a message warns you of this and explains that
only the first 1000 results will be presented in the list view. If you do not choose to refine your query to
yield fewer results, you can use the sequencer arrow in the toolbar of the current list view to show the
next 1000.
With instructions, you can perform a query based on the reference exactly as it is entered in the field (in
order to target a single instruction). To do this, ensure that the associated Exact Ref. checkbox is
checked - you do not complete any other fields.
For queries on some items (for example, user groups), you can use the Refresh command to display the
latest list view in your organisation unit.
Note: When you refresh the displayed list, the system executes the last query that you set up on the
Query tab, even if that tab is not open. Therefore, before closing the Query tab, you are advised to
click on the Reset and Query buttons or Action menu commands in succession to ensure that the
most recent list is used.
Maintaining query views
You can perform a query according to a one-time set of criteria or according to a “view” that you saved
when performing a query on a previous occasion.
Some query pages have a View dropdown list and a Save as button or Action menu command. When you
specify a query, you can define a one-time set of criteria or you can simply select an existing view from
the View dropdown list to use a predefined set of query criteria.

CreationOnline User Manual
Getting started
When you have fully specified your current query, you can use the Save as button or Action menu
command to preserve this set of criteria as a new view, which is added to the dropdown list and is
available to be selected for re-use.
When you select an existing view for your current query, the appropriate values are automatically
entered in the appropriate fields. You might use such a view as the basis of another query whose
criteria are mostly the same but vary in one or two details.
When a list of results is displayed for a selected view, you can use the commands in the View menu as
follows:
• To delete the current view from the list of available views;
• To give the current view a new name (replacing the name in the View dropdown list);
• To establish the current view as the default view for queries on this type of data.
Customising displayed lists
When the list of results is displayed, you can customise the arrangement of its content in a general way
as follows:
• To narrow or widen a column, click and hold down the mouse button on the column separator in
the column header and drag it to left or right as required.
• To reposition a column, click and hold down the mouse button on the column header and drag it
to left or right as required.
• To sort the displayed list (up to 50 entries) in descending order of values in a selected column,
click on the column heading. Further clicks on the column heading will toggle the list between
descending and ascending order of that column's values.
You can customise the content of a displayed list more specifically by means of the List menu available
on list views, as follows:
• To copy selected list items to the Clipboard for use in other applications;
• To select all the list items on the currently displayed page (maximum 50);
• To specify which columns you want to include in and/or exclude from the list view;
• To print all pages, the current page or the details of selected list items;
• To export all the list items on the currently displayed page (maximum 50) to a specified file in
CSV format;
• To export all pages (maximum 1000 items) to a specified file in CSV format;
• To save the current arrangement of columns for the list view;
• To reset the columns of the list view to the system defaults;
• To set the list view columns to your preferred settings.
Hide/Show columns:
1. Right-click in the header of any column in the list view to display the Column management
dialog box.
2. Ensure that the columns that you want to “hide” in the list view are unchecked and those that you
want to “show” are checked.
3. Select OK to enact your column settings.

Default System Settings:
• When you have specified the presence, position and width of columns in the list view but would
like to return the list view to its original settings, right-click in the header of any column in the
list view and select the Default System Settings command.
Preferred User Settings:
• When you have used the Save Column Settings command (to specify the presence, position and
width of columns in the list view) and you have since then used the Default System Settings
command or rearranged the columns in some other way, right-click in the header of any column
in the list view and select the Preferred User Settings command to return the display to your
saved settings for this list view.
Note: In a list view, you can right-click in the header area of the list and select directly the Hide
Columns command or the Save Column Settings command from a popup menu.
The CreationOnline page
The CreationOnline page has four main areas. The overall layout of the CreationOnline page within the
browser is as follows:
• The navigator panel on the left-hand side of the display, where the user can access a main menu
of commands to perform the different activities that are available according to user permissions;
• The workspace panel at the upper right of the display, where the user can access a list view of
items (up to 50 per page) related to the selected activity and perform various operations on them,
according to the tabs and subtabs provided on the page and the commands available in the local
Action menu;
• The dashboard (see below) at the lower left of the display, where all the transaction exceptions
can be listed;
• The alerts panel (see overleaf) at the lower right of the display, where up to 30 of the latest Alert
entries indicating particular events occurring in the system (and to which the user has
subscribed) are listed.
Every page provides a Help command to access the integrated online Help system. There is also a
Logoff command on every page, which you can use to end your session and return to the logon page.

The dashboard
Business users can use the dashboard command in the navigator panel to display the dashboard in the
lower left of the page. The dashboard displays the transaction exceptions for which the user has been
granted permission, in a tree-like structure, for all or individual accounts handled by the user.
When the dashboard is displayed, you can list exceptions by clicking on the relevant area in the tree
structure.
Note: The accounts are those that have been assigned to the user by the OU Administrator.
Permissions can be removed or assigned to particular users by their OU Administrator. This will
correspond directly with the navigator panel, as the respective option that has been removed will
no longer appear in the navigator panel.
To reveal the dashboard:
• In the navigator panel, select the Dashboard command.
This Dashboard command will not be present in the navigator panel while the dashboard is
displayed.
To refresh the display, simply right-click on Securities or Cash to highlight it and then click on it.
To conceal the dashboard:
• In the displayed dashboard, click on the “X”.
The Dashboard command will be available again for selection in the navigator panel.
To reveal the latest list of exception types:
1. In the displayed dashboard, right-click anywhere and select the required action from the popup
menu to indicate the current number of securities or cash exceptions, as appropriate.
2. Click on the
symbol to reveal the list of exception types. The symbol changes to
.
To display all the current exceptions of a specific type in a list view:
1. In the displayed dashboard, reveal the appropriate list of exception types (see above).
2. In the list, double-click on the required exception type.
The alerts panel
The alerts panel, which occupies the lower part of the CreationOnline page, is automatically refreshed
every 30 seconds by the system and displays an entry for each currently non-expired alert in a list, in
descending order of date/time of generation, across the width of the workspace panel.
The alerts in the alerts panel are, by default, sorted at generation time with the most recent alerts at
the top of the list. The alerts panel contains a maximum of 30 entries. If this number is reached and
then a new alert is generated, the oldest alert is removed from the alerts panel.
This panel is displayed independently of the activity you are performing in the workspace area. You
cannot hide the alerts panel nor change its width but you can “grab” the horizontal bar at the top of the
panel and move this up and down to vary its height.
The alerts panel shows alerts until they expire, at which time they are removed. Expired alerts can be
queried from the Query tab on the Alerts page until they are archived (see “Working with alerts” on
page 14-1).

You cannot sort, filter or perform searches on the list in the alerts panel; you must use the Query tab on
the Alerts page to perform these operations. You can, however, right-click in the list to access the
Refresh and Goto Link commands in a popup menu.
The different varieties of alert are indicated in the alerts panel as follows:
• All newly published alerts on which no action can be taken are displayed in normal type (no italic,
no bold).
• Newly generated alerts that are not yet read and on which action can be taken (as indicated by
the presence of a hyperlink in the Link column) are listed in bold type.
• Alerts on which action has been taken (that is, a user has clicked on the hyperlink to access the
details of the underlying item that triggered the alert) are displayed in normal type (no italic, no
bold).
Note: All published alerts on which you cannot or have not yet taken any action contain a hyperlink in
the Link column that you can use to view details of the underlying item (scheduled report).
When the user receives a Broadcast Message from Clearstream Banking, the user can doubleclick on the Narrative section to open a window containing the text.
Maintaining logon details, permissions and preferences
All users can, at any time, perform the following tasks for their own settings:
• “Changing your own credentials” below
• “Changing your own password” on page 1-9
• “Setting your own preferences” on page 1-10
• “Viewing your own current permissions” on page 1-10.
Note: Your credentials file and your password are uniquely associated. If you change your credentials,
you will also have to change your password. You can change your password without changing
your credentials.
OU Administrators with the appropriate permissions can, in addition perform the following tasks for
their OU settings:
• “Changing another user’s credentials” on page 1-11
• “Setting OU preferences” on page 1-11
• “Viewing OU current permissions” on page 1-11.
Changing your own credentials
Unchanged credentials will expire naturally after two years but you can change your own credentials at
any time. When you log on for the first time, you use a credentials file (for P12 access) or DLL file (for
smart card access) that you have been given as a first-time file. You must change these first-time
credentials as soon as possible. When you do so, you will have to specify a new password also.
To change your own P12 access credentials:
1. In the navigator panel, select the My Settings-Change Credentials command to display the
Change Credentials tab.
2. Select the P12 option and sweep your mouse pointer in any/all directions at random across the
open entropy field until the associated progress bar reaches 100%.
3. Enter your own current P12 password and then the new password for use with the new
credentials file that you are defining.

4. Confirm the new credentials password by entering it again in the next field.
5. Select Submit to establish your new credentials and password.
6. Specify a unique file name and save your new credentials file to a location of your choice on your
file system. When you next use the P12 option to log on to CreationOnline, you will locate this
new file through the Browse button on the Log on page.
Note: Passwords are case-sensitive. Each user credentials file is associated with a single password
only. An OU Administrator can change the credentials for other users (see “Changing another
user’s credentials” on page 1-11).
To change your own smart card access credentials:
1. In the navigator panel, select the My Settings-Change Credentials command to display the
Change Credentials tab.
2. Select the Smart Card option and sweep your mouse pointer in any/all directions at random
across the open entropy field until the associated progress bar reaches 100%.
3. Enter your own current smart card password and then use the Browse button to identify the DLL
file you are currently using for your credentials.
4. Select Submit to establish the new credentials and password.
Changing your own password
You can change your own password at any time. You can change your smart card password in the smart
card application or in CreationOnline. When you log on for the first time, you use an assigned first-time
password. You must change this first-time password as soon as possible.
Rules for passwords
User passwords for P12 access must:
• Be between 8 and 24 characters long
• Include characters from 3 of the following 4 character sets:
- Punctuation (including special symbols)
- Alphabetic (upper-case)
- Alphabetic (lower-case)
- Numbers.
The following additional validation rules apply when the user changes password:
• The new password must be unique in the password history stored in the user's credentials file.
An OU Administrator can specify the history length as part of the OU preferences (see “Setting
OU preferences” on page 1-11).
• The new password must have at least 4 characters that have changed. The system checks this by
comparing character 1 of the new password with character 1 of the old (current) password,
character 2 with character 2 and so on.
For the password rules for smart card access, see the smart card documentation.
Note: If you enter an invalid password or specify an invalid user credentials file, the system displays an
error message accordingly. After three invalid logon attempts, you are logged out and locked out
of the system and must contact your local System Administrator.

2. Working with users - Administration
As an OU Administrator with the appropriate permissions, you can regulate the use of CreationOnline in
your organisation unit. You can create users and user groups within your OU, assigning specific
permissions (credentials) to allow individual users to perform selected tasks in particular areas of
activity (for example, reporting).
You can also link Business User and Business Supervisor user groups1 to selected accounts to restrict
the activities of the Business Users in such a group to operations involving only specific accounts and
specific reports.
You can customise other features (OU preferences) according to the internal policies of your
organisation.
This chapter describes the tasks and topics that you will meet through the User Management-Users
and User Management-User Groups commands in the navigation menu, as follows:
• “The main user management activities” below
• “Managing users” on page 2-2
• “Managing User Groups” on page 2-10.
Note: All users can change their own logon credentials, password and preferences at any time. OU
Administrators can also change the credentials and password of any user in their OU and can set
OU preferences (see “Maintaining logon details, permissions and preferences” on page 1-8).
The main user management activities
The main User Management tasks are as follows:
• Managing users: to create new users and to perform other operations on existing users
according to their individual status. (An OU Administrator can also force a user logoff.) Users are
identified to CreationOnline by user name, ID and user group details, user credentials and
permissions and (for Business User and Business Supervisor users) relevant accounts and
reports.
• Managing user groups: to create new user groups and to perform other operations on existing
user groups according to their individual status. User groups are identified to CreationOnline by
user group name and type and user group permissions and (for Business User and Business
Supervisor user groups) relevant accounts and reports.
You can select the type of user management activity that you want to perform from the User
Management command in the navigator panel.
You can run queries on users and user groups and view the details of one or more individual entries
from the results list view in each case. See “Working with displayed list views” on page 1-4.

Managing users
As an OU Administrator, you can use the Action menu on the Users page as follows:
• “To create a user:” on page 2-3
• “To query users:” on page 2-3
• “To view the details of an existing user:” on page 2-4
• “To modify the details of a user:” on page 2-4
• “To delete a user:” on page 2-5
• “To confirm a user with Pending status:” on page 2-5
• “To reject a user with Pending status:” on page 2-6
• “To suspend a user:” on page 2-6
• “To (re-)activate a user:” on page 2-7
• “To stop a user:” on page 2-7
• “To force a user to log off:” on page 2-8
• “To refresh the list of users:” on page 2-8
• “To create/change the credentials of another user:” on page 2-9.
You can use the Refresh command to display the latest list of users in your organisation unit. You can
also customise the displayed list of users (see “Customising displayed lists” on page 1-5).
Note: When you have created a user, if the “4-eyes” principle is set ON (see “Setting OU preferences”
on page 1-11), the creation must be confirmed or rejected. If (as OU Administrator) you have
“authorise own” privileges, then you can confirm or reject your own action on users. Otherwise, a
second OU Administrator must do this.
All users can change their own user credentials and/or password and check their own
permissions. See “Maintaining logon details, permissions and preferences” on page 1-8.
It is up to your organisation's best practice to set the appropriate number of users and level of
security in order to maintain control and prevent fraud. CreationOnline allows you to create users
that have all rights and may input and release instructions without supervision.
Even though we offer this flexibility, we do not recommend it as it goes against best practice in order
to maintain appropriate control and prevent fraud and money laundering.
Specifically, we do not recommend that:
•
You deactivate the 4-eyes principle (especially for Administrators and Cash);
•
You centralise all privileges under a single user;
•
The same individuals perform Administrator and Business activities.
Clearstream Banking cannot be held responsible in the event of malpractice by a user that has all
rights.

Changing another user’s credentials
Your ability to create and/or change the credentials of another user depends on the following:
• whether the “4-eyes principle” is on (that is, it is switched on as part of your OU preferences) or
off;
• whether the user is:
-
awaiting credential authorisation (that is, the user is created but must be authorised for the
creation of credentials); or
-
pending credential creation (that is, the creation of credentials has been authorised but has
not yet performed); or
-
activated (that is, the user has been fully created and has credentials already defined);
• whether you yourself originally created the user.
This means:
• If the “4-eyes principle” is on and:
-
if the user is activated, then you can create credentials for the user.
-
if the user is awaiting credential authorisation:

if you originally created the user, then you cannot create credentials for the user until
another OU Administrator has authorised the creation of credentials for that user.
if you did not originally create the user, then you cannot create credentials for the user but
you can authorise the creation of credentials for that user.

Report distribution
Reports are distributed to business users according to their respective account assignments and user

report requests must have the appropriate status.
A report is eligible for distribution if:

These conditions summarise possible respective statuses as follows:
• “Active” scheduled report requests have Confirmed, Pending Modified or Pending Deleted status.
• “Non-Active” scheduled report requests have Pending New, Pending Rejected or Deleted status.
Consequently, only reports that have Confirmed, Pending Modified or Pending Deleted status will be
distributed to users who have permissions on the respective report and accounts.
The modification or deletion of any scheduled report request will only affect report distribution if such
actions are confirmed.

Working with securities instructions pre-release
As a business user with the appropriate permissions, you can use CreationOnline to create, create
upload, query, view, modify, duplicate, verify, fail verify, undo verify and cancel Receive Free, Receive
Against Payment (buy), Deliver Free and Deliver Against Payment (sell) securities settlement
instructions up to and including release (that is, being sent for settlement).
You can also display the pre-release status history of securities instructions.
When the instruction has been released for settlement, it can, if required, be further progressed as a
post-release instruction (see “Working with securities instructions post-release” on page 6-10).
Using the “search and select” feature in queries
When you select the Search button (?) next to a field on a query tab:
• You could be presented with a Query subtab. Through this subtab, you can perform a subquery
and “apply” a found value for use in the related field in the main query that you are currently
performing.
The results of the subquery are presented in a list view on a Result subtab and will include all
the securities whose respective details contain the specified values.
On the Results subtab, you can highlight the required list item and use the Apply button to place
the appropriate value in the field in the main query.
For example, if the Financial Instrument Identification Type is set to ISIN and you specify “DE” in
the Identification of Financial Instrument field, then the list view will contain an entry for each
security whose ISIN contains the two characters “DE”.
• You could be presented with a drop-down list, which allows you to make multiple selections, by
using Ctrl + left mouse click.
General securities instruction tasks pre-release

As a Business User or Business Supervisor1 with the appropriate permissions, you can use
CreationOnline to create and progress Pre-advice of Funds, Withdrawal of Funds, Customer Transfer
and Foreign Exchange cash instructions and to query and view cash balances and credit and collateral
usage.
Note: For historical reasons, Clearstream Banking cash instruction types are often referred to by
individual instruction type number, as follows:
Pre-advice of Funds
(identified as PAF)
Withdrawal of Funds
(identified as WOF)
Customer Transfer
(identified as CT)
Foreign Exchange
(identified as FE)
In CreationOnline, an instruction is considered to belong to one of two principal categories:
• Pre-release, including all instructions, when the activity status can be one of the following:
Processing: New, Verified, Failed Verified, Awaiting Feedback, Cancelled, Rejected2,
Accepted2, Modified.
You can query pre-release cash instructions and you can view their history.
-
• Post-release, including all instructions input via CreationOnline or other input media, when the
activity status can be one of the following (see “Appendix A . Activity statuses and Reason
codes”):
- Processing: Receipt, Cancelled, Accepted, Rejected, Executed
- Cancellation processing: Executed, Denied, Rejected
- Internal settlement: Pending, Failing, Settled.
You can query post-release cash instructions and you can view their history.
You can also:
• Create upload ASCII instruction files;
• Query and view cash balances;
• Query historical cash instructions that have reached end of life cycle over the past 13 months;
• Query and view current credit and collateral usage and the next day forecast.
Note: When you refresh the displayed list, the system executes the last query that you set up on the
Query tab, even if that tab is not open. Therefore, before closing the Query tab, you are advised to
click on the Reset and Query buttons or Action menu commands in succession to ensure that the

IPAR
As a Business User or Business Supervisor1, you can use CreationOnline to perform queries on Income
Pre-Advice Report (IPAR) data.
• The IPAR is a forecast or projection of cash or securities proceeds that are expected and must
not be interpreted as confirmation of payment.
• Final distribution of coupon, dividend, securities or redemption payments can only be made
when confirmation from the Paying Agent has been received. Clearstream Banking makes no
commitment that the payment will take place based on this report.
• Payments are distributed at the start of real-time processing on the eve of Settlement Date (SD)
in anticipation of confirmation being received from the Paying Agent. If such confirmation is not
received, Clearstream Banking reserves the right to cancel the distribution of the payment and
withdraw the funds retroactively. Alternatively, if an issuer is known to be in default, Clearstream
Banking reserves the right to distribute the payment only if and when confirmation is received
from the Paying Agent.
You can query IPAR data on the IPAR Queries page. This page has an Action menu of commands that
you can perform in relation to one or more of the listed items. This Action menu also contains a Refresh
command to update the list. The number of items in the list is also shown.

it and at least one notification related to it has been issued.
Subject to this, you do not need a holding a security in order to use this query to view corporate actions
related to it.
Warning: If the query does not find any event, the absence of an event does not necessarily mean that
there are none. It is possible that no Clearstream Banking customer has a holding in the related
security.
Disclaimer: The notification and the subsequent autoreply email and its attachments can not be
reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, electronic or mechanical, if neither you nor the

any reason whatsoever by yourselves, the addressee, third parties or Clearstream Banking by

a notification (such as balances or entitlement information) is shown.

panel below this field. You can include further securities in the query by entering the code or
description and clicking Add.

• by setting a date and time range notification time stamps.

14. Working with alerts
An alert is a notification, broadcast to the relevant users, of an event in CreationOnline (for example, the
receipt of a report) that may require action in response.
CreationOnline uses alerts to inform business or non-business users (with the appropriate
permissions) of particular events occurring in the system. A list of the 30 most recent alerts is
maintained and refreshed every 30 seconds by the system in the alerts panel beneath the workspace on
the CreationOnline page (see “The alerts panel” on page 1-7).
Alerts are listed, in descending order of published date/time, in the alerts panel and on the Alerts page.
Alerts are either “new” (read and unread) or “expired”. The alerts panel shows new alerts only; the
Alerts page shows both new and expired alerts and expired alerts can continue to be used in queries
(until they are archived).
On the Alerts page, you can list the results of queries on alerts. You can use the Refresh command in
the Action menu to actively refresh the list.
Note: You cannot delete or modify an alert in the alerts list. An OU Administrator can browse only those
alerts that are for the respective OU to which he/she belongs. Business users can query only
those alerts that have been broadcast to them.
For alerts listed in the alerts panel, you can use the Goto Link command to access the details of the
item that triggered a listed alert.
Note: The Goto Link command is available when you right-click on a selected alert in the alerts panel.
You can also customise the displayed list of alerts on the Alerts page (see “Customising displayed lists”
on page 1-5).
This chapter describes the following tasks that you can perform through the CreationOnline Alerts
command in the navigation menu:
• “To query alerts:” on page 14-2
• “To link to an item that triggered an alert:” on page 14-2.

specifications to their default values so that you can start the query again.
-
If you decide to abandon the query, use the Discard button or Action menu command to

An OU Administrator can browse only those alerts that are for the respective OU to which he/she
belongs. Business users can query only those alerts that have been broadcast to them.
When you refresh the displayed list, the system executes the last query that you set up on the
Query tab, even if that tab is not open. Therefore, before closing the Query tab, you are advised to
click on the Reset and Query buttons or Action menu commands in succession to ensure that the
most recent list is used.
To link to an item that triggered an alert:
1. In the alerts panel, right-click on the appropriate alert in the list.
2. Select Goto link from the popup menu to display the relevant details of the underlying scheduled
report on the appropriate page.
The displayed details always reflect the current (that is, most recent) status of the underlying item. This
status is indicated at the top of the display tab.
Note: An alert is generated for each action taken in the life cycle of an item, with a corresponding
change of status for that item. If you select an alert in the alerts panel that is not the most recent
alert for the underlying item, nevertheless it is the current status of the item that is reflected in
the display tab and the actions that you can perform on the item (for example, confirm or reject)
are according to that current status.

Appendix D. Using the Online Help
You can access the CreationOnline Help information system in either of the following ways:
• Via the Help command in the navigator panel
• Via the Help menu on each page
How the Online Help is presented
The Help system is presented on a page divided into two panes. The Help information is displayed in the
right-hand pane and a table of contents is provided in the left-hand Help navigation pane.
A toolbar at the top of the Help page provides toolbar buttons with the following uses:
To display the Contents list in the Help navigation pane. The Contents list is presented as a
tree structure to reflect the organisation of the Help information. See How to use the Online
Help Contents list below.
To display the Index in the Help navigation pane. The Index is a list of keywords set
throughout the Help information system and which you can use to search for specific Help
information. See How to use the Online Help Index below.
To display the full-text Search facility in the Help navigation pane. With the Search facility,
you can search for any string of characters throughout the Help information system. See
How to use the Online Help full-text Search facility below.
To return immediately to the “home page” of the Help information (that is, the
“CreationOnline” page).
These arrows indicate that the currently displayed help topic is included in a browse
sequence. The navigation in this Help system is organised “vertically”, in a logically
hierarchical scheme; browse sequences group together related topics “horizontally”.
For example, the main browse sequence links “horizontally”, among others, Reporting and
User Management, which are each the individual heads of “vertical” sub-schemes of help
information.
At either end of the browse sequence, the appropriate arrow is dimmed.
How the Online Help is organised
The main Reference and Procedural Help for the main areas of activity is presented together on a single
page for each area. Where you see bold blue text, this means that, depending on your web browser, you
may be able to click anywhere on this text to reveal related information immediately following. Click
again on the now bold green text to conceal the information again (leaving the text finally in bold
maroon).

D—1
Appendix D. Using the Online Help
Where this feature is not supported, the pages can be quite long and internal navigation is provided in
lists of appropriate hypertext links at the top and at the bottom of the page. These “Related topics” lists
also include hypertext links to related Help information on other pages.
Different symbols are used on the Help information pages to indicate the different ways of navigating
within the Help information system, as follows:
A down or up pointer in a hypertext link indicates that related Help information can be
found below or above, as appropriate, on the current Help page. The related Help
information may be Reference Help or Procedural Help.
A right pointer in a hypertext link indicates that related Help information can be found on
another Help page.
An up pointer ranged right of a section heading or at the bottom of the Help page
indicates a direct jump to the top of the current Help page.
An up arrow ranged right of a section subheading indicates a direct jump to the main
heading of that section on the current Help page. This is used only in longer sections.
A pair of left and right pointers at the bottom right of a Help page indicates that the
current Help page is part of a browse sequence (for example, the sample reports). On the
first and last pages of a browse sequence, the ineffective direction pointer is dimmed.
How to use the Online Help Contents list
You can use the
navigation pane.
button to display a Contents “tree” of the Help information system in the Help
The Contents list is presented as a tree structure to reflect the organisation of the Help information
system.
The “closed book” symbol against an entry in the list indicates
that it contains subsections whose entries are currently not
displayed. Click once on this symbol (or on the text of the entry)
to reveal the list of subsections. The symbol changes to “opened
book”.
Now you can:
• Click again on the text of the entry to go to help for this
entry; or.
• Click on the required subsection entry to go to help for
that entry; or
• Click again on the symbol to conceal the list of
subsections again.
The graphic symbols used against the entries in the Contents list each indicate the nature of the
information available, as follows:
A main Help page for the whole application, for a main area of activity or for the Help. Such
a page contains subsections of Reference Help and/or Procedural Help. The subsections are
shown in the Contents list beneath this entry at an indent.
Reference or Procedural Help, often a subsection of a main Help page for a main area of
activity and often a separate Help page.
• Reference Help gives specific explanation, context and/or background information,
with hypertext links to related Procedural Help as appropriate.
• Procedural Help gives specific instructions in a procedure, with hypertext links to
related Reference Help as appropriate.

Glossary
Amount
The countervalue of the instruction. Positive and negative amounts are shown as such on all reports.
N.B.: When you are filtering the display of an MT950 Money Statement, you must ensure that the From
amount is lower in real terms than the To amount. This means that, for positive amounts, the From
figure must be smaller than the To figure and, for negative amounts, the From figure must be
bigger than the To figure.
For example: If an actual amount is positive (2346.30), then a From/To range of 2000 to 3000 will
include the statement for this amount in the display.
If an actual amount is negative (-2346.30), then a From/To range of -3000 to -2000 will include
the statement for this amount in the display but a From/To range of -2000 to -3000 is not valid
and will result in a “no movements” message.
Amount (instructions)
In a query, From and To amounts define a range of amounts (in a selected currency) and those
instructions that involve amounts within this range are included in the results of your query.
In a securities instruction, this is the Settlement Amount (and currency). In a cash instruction, this is
the amount (and currency) of the transfer/exchange.
Audit event
An action performed, by the user or by the system, in the use of CreationOnline and logged as such in
the Audit Log. An audit event has no direct business implication for users and no response is required
from them. Contrast with “Alert”. Only non-business users (OU Administrators) can access the Audit
Log.

to which they belong. The following generic details are typically common to all audit events:

Audit events - variable details
