My organization currently uses FedLine Web® but does not use FedCash® Access Manager
If your organization is looking to gain more control and restrict access for all current Subscribers of FedCash Services via the FedLine Web Solution that place cash orders, FedCash Access Manager is right for your organization. The following steps will guide you through how to add Subscribers and receive the proper credentialing to begin using FedCash Access Manager.
Step 1 — Determine if you need to re-credential your Subscribers
The most frequent question we receive from current FedCash Services via FedLine Web customers is whether organizations must re-credential all current FedLine Web Subscribers when setting up FedCash Access Manager. If your Subscribers are currently credentialed under one ABA, you do not need to re-credential. If your Subscribers are credentialed under multiple ABAs, you will need to re-credential each Subscriber under one "Administrative ABA" to get the most benefit from FedCash Access Manager. Having Subscribers credentialed under one Administrative ABA allows for greater control by an organization's Administrator for restricting Subscriber access to a specific endpoint for cash orders/deposits or viewing cash reports.
Step 2 — Identify an Administrative ABA Number
To allow your organization the most efficient use of FedCash Access Manager, we encourage you to select one Administrative ABA number for which all ABAs and endpoints will be linked.
- A current ABA that has the most Subscribers assigned to it
- The ABA assigned to your organization's corporate headquarters
- The ABA assigned to your organization's billing ABA
Step 3 — Identify an Employee for the Administrator Access Level
To use FedCash Access Manager, your organization will need to select an employee to perform the Administrator role. The Administrator will have the ability to restrict other employees' access to a specific endpoint and/or to a group of select endpoints across ABAs for placing cash orders/deposits or viewing cash reports.
NOTE: It's recommended that you select at least one back-up Administrator for contingency purposes.
Step 4 — Request Credentials
An End User Authorization Contact (EUAC) from your organization should submit a Subscriber request via the EUAC Center within FedLine Home.
Step 5 — Obtain Subscriber Credential Components
Upon the Federal Reserve Banks' completion of a Subscriber request, a passphrase will be emailed to the Subscriber and a FedLine security token will be mailed to the EUAC who submitted the request.
Step 6 — Request ABA Links
Once credentials have been issued, your organization will contact the local Cash office to request that all ABAs be linked (in the order for/order by table) to the Administrative ABA.
After the links are complete, the Administrator can begin restricting access (see step 7) to Subscribers.
NOTE: Once the ABAs have been linked, any Subscriber with a new or old credential will be able to order for all ABAs until the previous credential has been deleted and the Administrator has restricted access on new credentials.
Step 7 — Restrict access to Subscribers
The Administrator can restrict the endpoints for which a Subscriber can place orders.
Step 8 — Distribute FedLine security tokens to new Subscribers
After the Administrator has restricted Subscriber access, the EUAC will distribute FedLine security tokens to the Subscribers.
NOTE: Tokens can be distributed before access is restricted; however, this is not recommended.
Step 9 — Delete Subscriber credentials
Your organization's EUACs are responsible for requesting the deletion of Subscriber credentials when the credentials are no longer needed. Requests to delete credentials should be submitted via the EUAC Center within FedLine Home.
Step 10 — Begin using FedCash Access Manager
For Subscribers, the ordering process works as it did before. Subscribers may have more or fewer endpoints visible to them depending on parameters of their new credentials.
For access problems, application malfunctions and questions about how to use the application.
For assistance with cash transactions, such as correcting an order that was submitted in error, adding to your list of Authorized ABAs, or determining local order and deposit procedures.
