  • More information on MAAS and MATS

    Technical documentation

    There are technical documents that detail the full Member Account Attribute Service (MAAS) and Member Account Transaction Service (MATS) designs. These documents should be used to inform your system build.

    The documents are hosted on the Standard Business Reporting (SBR) website, however they use different naming conventions.

    MAAS and MATS:

    • MAAS and MATS are both found within the Super Member (SPRMBR) suite.
    • The SPRMBR Package documents contain both MAAS and MATS documentation.

    MAAS:

    • MAAS is referred to as Super Member Information or SPRMBRINFO.
    • MAAS documentation can also be found within the SPRMBR Package.

    In addition to this, MAAS technical documents cover two different interaction types.

    • MAAS reporting of changes to phases and attributes is done through the Submit or Maintain member account (MMA) interaction.
    • The optional Provision of Details (POD) service is referred to as Get or Provision of Details.

    MATS:

    • MATS is referred to as Super Member Account Transactions or SPRMBRACCTX.
    • MATS documentation can also be found within the SPRMBR Package.

    Note: Technical documents will have a status of 'draft' however they are the locked down versions. Standard process is for these documents to remain with a status of draft even though they are the build versions. Status will be updated to 'final' near implementation stage.
