Core data specifications

Introduction

Green Check’s Account Monitoring feature relies on the ingestion of key data from the core system.  This data must be in a consistent, readable format as outlined below (Table 1.). The Green Check data ingestion process is capable of filtering unneeded data from reports it receives as well as mapping your source report structure to our data schema. Assuming your source report structure is consistent between uploads, this mapping will only have to be done once.

Field Definitions

All fields must be free of leading or trailing spaces, as well as any non-ASCII Characters. Exact field names are not important as data will be mapped upon upload.

 "M/dd/yyyy h:mm:ss a",

 "M/d/yyyy h:mm:ss a",

 

Additionally, any SQL format or ISO8601 format, in milliseconds, in seconds are also supported.

File Format

Files should be exported in .csv or .xls format.

File Transmission

Files are transmitted to Green Check securely via direct file upload within the application or SFTP (on a case by case basis).

Frequency

In order for Green Check’s functionality to be fully effective, core transaction data is needed on a recurring basis. The frequency of data will depend on the institution’s desired account review schedule (monthly, quarterly, annually).

Transaction Codes

Transaction codes must be provided at time of implementation to map existing transaction codes to standard transaction types so that Green Check will know how to apply the information received.

Please download and fill in the template below, then send it to your Green Check Account Manager.

Please note: You will need to provide your transaction codes to Green Check before you are able to begin importing core transaction data.
