The Account ID is a required setting and can be up to 25 characters.
Note: The FIXML account ID that was used to generate the SSL certificate in the private key file must be the same FIXML account ID configured in User Setup and registered on the Exchange website.
To generate the SSL certificate and register it on the Exchange website, refer to Creating FIXML Account IDs and SSL Certificates for Eurex.
