id_mult (except o04*)
Q. How many partitions there will be in releae 6.3?
A. One partition. As an alternative you may still use the previous interface and scheme without a partition number.
Q. When are you planning to add more partitions?
A. We are planning to start the public testing with several partitions in the third quarter of 2020.
Q. I tried to get the session ID from deal_id…
A. You should not do that! The inner ID structure is provided as information, the description accordance to the content is not guaranteed and can be changed in the future without a notification.
Q. Why does an orders_log entry with a placed order does not have activity flag?
A. The activity flag is an attribute of a deal, not an order. An order within its life cycle can be both active and passive. That is why we set the flags either in a deal entry, either in an entry with an order alteration caused by a deal.
Q. Is it possible to use one login for several partitions?
A. The technical capability to do so is available.
Q. Can these changes be tried on a test environment?
A. Can and should be! The T1 test environment is already updated to a new version.
