Scheduled maintenance to BSC Central Systems: 16 - 17 March 2019
What is happening?
We will be carrying out maintenance on BSC Central Systems from 23:00 (GMT) Saturday 16 March 2019 to 05:00 (GMT) Sunday 17 March 2019. This may result in temporary issues with connectivity.
How will I be affected?
ELEXON anticipates little or no impact on the BSC Parties, however in some cases users may notice intermittent service in particular with applications where they have persistent connections with BSC Services, including Balancing Mechanism Reporting Service (BMRS), ELEXON Portal and Energy Contract Volume Aggregation Agent (ECVAA).
In addition to this, there may also be a delay in receiving, loading and publishing data on the BMRS website as well as via the Application Programming Interfaces (API), and Data Push services. Users of the TIBCO service may also experience temporary disconnections of service or a delay in the publishing of TIBCO messages via their High Grade Communications Lines.
What do I need to do?
Due to intermittent access to File Transfer Protocol (FTP) services, we request you to kindly submit Energy Contract Volume Notification (ECVN) and Metered Volume Reallocation Notification (MVRN) to ECVAA as early as possible prior to the Submission Deadline.
Is there anything else I need to know?
