Alliance and SWIFTNet Release 7.2 - Mandatory upgrade

The mandatory upgrade to the underlying technology behind SWIFTs Interface products is now available. This release applies to Alliance Access, Alliance Entry, Alliance Gateway, Alliance Web Platform Server-Embedded and SWIFTNet Link and SWIFT Web Access.

It is necessary for affected customers to upgrade by end November 2018, to ensure that their SWIFT services remain uninterrupted. The aim of the release is to continue to provide a highly secure and efficient SWIFT service for our customers in the years ahead.

Release 7.2 also introduces the much anticipated FileAct Enhancements, more details of the enhancements can be found in the SWIFTNet Link 7.2 Release letter. As communicated in July 2017,  FileAct customers should only go live in production only after receiving explicit confirmation from SWIFT.

To help you plan for this change, you can find more details in the Release 7.2 Migration Guide, a dedicated SWIFTSmart eLearning module, and in the product documentation on the User Handbook Online.
