Assigning an account to a connection

Use the Accounts tab to assign an existing account to an exchange connection. When assigning accounts to exchange connections owned by your company, consider the following:

  • Multiple accounts can be assigned to a single connection.
  • When setting up tiered risk using sub-accounts, the sub-accounts (child accounts) and any sub-accounts of sub-accounts "inherit" the exchange connection credentials of the parent account.
  • A child account can be removed from a connection without impacting the parent account connectivity. However, if you remove the parent account from the connection, the child accounts are also removed.
  • As a company risk administrator, only you have permissions to configure the connection.
  • Also, as a company risk administrator, you cannot assign accounts to connections that are not owned by your company. However, if a shared account is assigned to a connection that you own, the company sharing the account can use the connection for order routing.

  1. Click Connections in the left navigation pane and select a connection from the data grid.
  2. Click the Accounts tab.
  3. Click +Add
