CME provides an FTP (https://www.cmegroup.com/ftp) and SFTP (sftpng.cmegroup.com) site to disseminate MDP 3.0 schemas and market data configuration information. This site contains the Schema and Configuration files for all events, Security Definition flat files, and Market Schedule files for the New Release and Production environments. Schema and market data configuration details for the production environment are only available to customers after the certification process is complete. CME Group recommends clients use SFTP over FTP to access configuration files.

Information applies as follows in the table:

  • Environment - specific environment (i.e., Certification, New Release, Production)

The AutoCert+ tool will indicate which environment you need to connect to for certification. For additional information on AutoCert+ access, refer to the AutoCert+ Access Guide.

  • Service - Core Globex SBE Schema, Global TCP Recovery SBE Schema for UDP, TCP Session Management SBE Schema, MDP UDP Configuration, Market Schedule File, or Security Definition Flat File service
  • Markets - Futures and Options, BrokerTec, EBS
  • FTP/SFTP Site - address of the site
  • Directory Location - identifies directory
  • Client System Update Schedule - client systems should download updates according to schedule specified


To filter the table by column, hover over the column heading and select the filter icon.
