You can change your Data Exchange Gateway (DEG) Password at any time through the
DEG Web Site. The following link will get you directly to the DEG's
Change Password page.
If you change your DEG Password (or the MSP assigns you a new DEG Password), you must also update
it in the EJS OnSite application, to be able to send and receive MICR Data.
Your DEG Login Name -- sometimes also called User Name, User ID or
Mailbox Name by the MSP -- is based on your ORI Number. It will always be "MSP"
followed by the first five digits of your ORI Number. You can also find your DEG Login Name
on the FTP Parameters Maintenance dialog, which is described below.
A Supervisor -- a user with Access Level 4 -- can modify the EJS OnSite FTP parameters,
including the DEG Login Password, at any time by selecting from the main menu of the EJS OnSite Police RMS
This will open the FTP Parameters Maintenance dialog (as shown below).
In display mode, the FTP Passwords are shown encrypted, the way they are stored internally. Only after pressing the
button, are the FTP Passwords shown in clear text.
NOTE: If any Password is shown in clear text while in display mode, then this Password
was probably entered directly into the System Parameters, and will not work correctly!
After pressing the button, the DEG FTP Password
can be changed in the appropriate field (see red box in picture below.)
NOTE: DEG Passwords must not contain any lower case letters, as only UPPER CASE
characters are permitted by the MSP. To be reasonably secure, your password should contain eight or more
characters, including CAPITAL LETTERS, one or more Digits (0 to 9), and at least one
of the following special characters: ~ ! @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ - + = < > , . ?
After pressing the button, the new DEG FTP Password
will be encrypted and saved in the database.
NOTE: If the EJS OnSite program is setup to automatically submit MICR Data through
the DEG, the DEG Password must either be changed with the instance of the EJS OnSite application that is running the
automatic submission process (usually on the server), or that specific instance needs to be restarted to utilize the
new DEG Password or any other modified DEG setting.
