CDMIS Test Site Now Available

The CDMIS Test Web site [] is now available for agencies to test their new file format.

Please Note: This Test Web site is only for the use of agencies that submit their monthly CDD­801A data via Electronic File Upload. Agencies that submit their monthly data using Copy Forward and Web input do not need to test files at this time and should not use this Test Web site.

Agency staff currently authorized to upload their monthly CDD-801A via Electronic File Transfer will be able to use their same username and password to log on to the Test Web site. The file must be formatted in accordance with the most recent File Format Specifications.

Make sure that you select the same report month/year as in your test file when uploading to the test site.

The files will be processed daily from 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. every 30 minutes (i.e., 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, etc.). To view the results, from the Main Menu select “CDD-801A Management Report” and from the next screen select “CDD-801A Electronic File Status Report.” Review the messages displayed, fix any errors listed, and resubmit the file again. Continue this process until there are no errors. When your file passes with no errors, go to CDD-801A Web Input/Edit for the month and year you used for your test file and verify that the data are correct.

Note: This special Test Web site is only designed to test file formats in Electronic File Transfers. Do not try to access any other areas of the system, to edit data, or to copy it forward because the Test site will produce confusing results and/or will cause error messages to occur in other parts of the site. In addition, please note that data submitted via this Test Web site will not be processed in any way by CDMIS staff. Agencies are cautioned not to use this special Test Web site for their regular data submissions.

Once your file has successfully passed the new requirements and you can see that the data have been added to the test system correctly, your testing is done. This will be your indication that the new file format will be processed correctly when you use it for uploading data.

CDMIS staff welcomes your comments, as well as suggestions for topics to be discussed in these CDMIS Updates.
