CAT Testing for the New Data Center
As part of your migration to our new Data Centers it is important to confirm that your systems are compatible with the new cryptography settings and can successfully connect to our new servers. You can validate your connection by performing a self test using the instructions below.
Your current test security credentials have been installed in the new environment, but there may be some scenarios where you will need to provide new test keys or certificates. Unless you are configured to use strict host checking the primary J.P. Morgan Host to Host keys and certificates will remain the same. If you are configured to use strict host checking, then you will also need to download and use the appropriate certificate for your assigned URL.
Depending on your firewall configuration, changes may be required. The new IPs for connections you initiate are listed below. If you receive files automatically pushed to you, those IP ranges will not change.
Full end to end testing is not required as only the front end servers are changing.
All file transmissions must utilize the new Data Center by June 20, 2024 or risk disruption in service.
We have two environments: CAT (Client Acceptance Testing) and Production. Each environment has multiple URLs that can be used for connectivity. Usually, the URL that you use in CAT will be similar to the URL you use in production.
Regularly scheduled maintenance windows for CAT occur Tuesday 5 p.m. – 12 a.m. ET and Thursday 5 p.m. – 12 a.m. ET. If you experience connectivity issue during these times, please retry after the window has expired.
Note: Production data should never be transmitted to the CAT environment and test data should never be sent to the production environment. In order to ensure this does not happen, we require that you give us one certificate or key for CAT, and a different certificate or key for production.
CAT environment changes are implemented prior to Production without notice.
CAT Self-Service Testing
For Self-Service testing, please follow the steps below:
- Connect to the J.P. Morgan Host-to-Host test server to verify connectivity.
- Send a digitally signed "junk text file to verify the process flow using the file naming convention below (case sensitive),
- If the digital signature is successfully validated, an automated process will trigger an outbound file using what you originally sent.
- If the digital signature cannot be validated, the file will not be processed.
