User Help System



Getting Started

The AutoCert+ tool is an automated testing tool for validating application functionality. It provides an easy-to-use web interface for walking through CME Group certification scenarios.

To facilitate the process of connecting a customer application, CME Group provides a dedicated certification environment to allow customers to test their systems before they complete certification.

This Help system accompanies the AutoCert+ EBS Risk Management API test suite.

EBS Risk Management API

EBS Risk Management API provides API access to EBS risk administrators through simple API calls to retrieve lists of entity groups, retrieve and set credit limits and kill or unkill trading.

EBS Risk Management API is a JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) Representation State Transfer (REST) API which provides REST endpoints (URLs) representing the HTTP methods GET request to retrieve records, and the POST request to create new records. EBS Risk Management API risk authenticates risk administrators using OAuth 2.0 protocol.

EBS risk administrators can use the EBS Risk Management API or User Interface(UI) to manage risk.
