Identification Number (TCH RTP Instruction ID) is not filterable/searchable in Inbound Transactions

Identification ID is not available as a column and Search filter when displaying a Transaction in FTM Digital Payments.

The TCHRTP Instruction ID is written to the FTM field called Identification Number; this field currently only displays in the Inbound Transmission Hierarchy General Tab; this is a critical piece of research information that warrants it’s own column in Inbound Transactions and should be filterable/searchable.

We realize the TCHRTP Transaction ID is written to the Alternative ID which does display on Inbound Transactions as a column and is searchable; but the Transaction ID does not always match the Instruction ID by design.

This issue was originally reported in IBM case TS002561742 with the following comment:


This has been determined to be a request for a product enhancement. Per product architect, TCH has both a Transaction ID and an Instruction ID.  We deemed the Transaction ID as the more likely to be searched on, so we put it in the Alternative ID column which is filterable.  The Instruction ID is put into MICR_FIELD_7 and it is not currently filterable.
