1st October 2019
The next Trade Test release, TTM8.1.2, is planned for Thursday 3 October 2019.
The outage for the TTM 8.1.2 implementation is expected to begin at 9am on Thursday 3 October. The environment will be available for you to resume your testing on Friday 4 October.
The TTM8.1.2 release will enable Exports inventory linking dual running between CDS Trade Test and CHIEF HMUT. This means the Trade Test environment will no longer be using a stubbed CHIEF service.
Section E-5 (Exports Inventory Linking Dual Running) of the CDS Trade Test Scenarios Document issued for TTM8.1.0 outlines the functionality that will be enabled once connectivity has been established between CDS Trade Test and the CHIEF HMUT service.
Should you have any Trade Test queries or other questions relating to your product development, you can contact the HMRC dedicated Software Developers Support Team mailbox. Queries received through this mailbox are addressed using a triage system to ensure resolution by the Policy, IT and Project Teams.
