Generic support of optional EBICS Order Types


In Germany, a significant number of EBICS Order Types (äóìAuftragsartenäó) are used to specify by the clients which administrative operation they wish to submit using the banking server. If the order type is recognised by the banking server and the individual submitting the order is authorised, a format validation process specified for this order type will be initialised. This is different from the French market where only one order type is generally used for uploads (FUL) and one for downloads (FDL) - these two order types are referred to as standard EBICS order types. In addition to these two standard order types, there are reserved order types with a predefined format description, please see . It is also possible to use bilateral order types agreed between two parties within a dedicated name space (beginning with X Y or Z).

    It's important that the custom order types (German support) is added to banking server as well as the client code in B2Bi, to ensure that B2Bi can act both as a German bank and a German client.


    Both client and banking server should also support RSA keys (German) in addition to X509 certs (French), and in German version the keys are not included in message tag as per the cert tag in French version.
