Configuring the EBICS Server Service
To configure the EBICS Server service, you must specify the settings for the following fields in the Graphical Process Modeler (GPM) or in the Business Processing Modeling Language (BPML):
Maximum Idle Time
Optional. The maximum period (in minutes) allocated to complete the transaction before it is cancelled. Valid value is any positive integer. The default value is 60 minutes.
For large payloads using order types FUL or FDL, set to 300 minutes.
Maximum Open Transaction Per Subscriber
Optional. The bank system can limit the number of open transactions with positive recovery counter per subscriber. Valid value is any positive integer. The default value is 0, which indicates that unlimited number of transactions can be open.
Replay Testing’s Tolerance Period
Optional. The tolerance period (in minutes, from the current time) of EBICS Server before the request (with timestamp older than this period) is rejected with a suspected replay error code. Valid value is any positive integer. The default value is 360 minutes.
Required. The business process runs a task to cancel idle transactions when they exceed the Maximum Idle Time period.
If the transactions have been idle for more than the configured maximum idle time, the scheduler ends the transactions. If the FDL transactions have been idle for more than the configured maximum idle time, the intermediate messages held during the idle transactions are restored to their original names.
Scheduler performs the housekeeping task to cancel idle transactions and delete expired Nonce records.
Following are the valid values:
