Error description

  • When for a FileAct SnF Receive request the ACK response was not
    received in time, the tranfer itself completes successfully,
    however, the notification phase ends with notification state
    failed.
    This is because autorecovery re-sends the ACK and SWIFT returns
    a response, which indicates, that the ACK has already been
    received. This response is currently treated as a failure,
    though it should lead to completion of the notification phase
    (state: complete).
    The user himself must never get the impression, that he could do
    a manual recover for such a situation.
    In addition, SA, API and potentially CC guide need to
    be improved. Currently, the description of the notification
    phase is not clear - customer could derive, that the
    notification phase is only to handle delivery notifications,
    though also other processing is done during the notification
    phase.(and delivery notifications are not present for FileAct
    SnF Receive at all).
    The documentation needs to describe, what is done during the
    notification phase for the different scenarios, and it needs to
    distinguish between real time and SnF.

    ****************************************************************
    Formerly, when MSIF failed to receive in time SWIFT's response
    to an ACK of an SnF FileReceived scenario, MSIF re-sent the
    ACK which led to an error response containing error code
    Sw.SnF.InvalidSnFRef. This error caused MSIF to change
    the notification state to 'Failed'.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Now, on receiving error code Sw.SnF.InvalidSnFRef for the
    FileReceived scenario, MSIF changes the notification state
    from 'Sent' to 'Complete' as the provided error code
    indicates that the corresponding FileReceived scenario has
    already been acknowledged.
