CodeRunner: 8.5.42

New Features

69628: Gemini Connectivity

CodeRunner now retries 3 times before failing any action connecting to Gemini. This makes the connections more robust.

Fixes

69628: Performance Improvements

CodeRunner now performs better when a database contains a large number of swing contract nominations.

CodeRunner: 8.5.32

New Features

69628: Windows Authentication

Allow CodeRunner to use Windows Authentication to log in.

70230: Status Overview Bar

The introduction of the Status toolbar allows users an immediate overview of frequently used screens, indicating either an OK status (shows green) or highlighting an issue that needs to be investigated further (shows red). Each indicator links to the relevant screen, showing more detail

70231: Sense Check

Sense Check tabs have been updated so all flagged issues are now grouped together at the top of the grid on each tab.

70538: Beach Positions

The Beach Check tab has been removed from the Sense Check screen. Instead there is a new Beach Positions screen accessible via an icon on the main toolbar, which shows the same data. Behaviour of the beach checks and alerts is unchanged. If an Insufficient Terminal Gas alert is shown, it links to the new screen.

71110: Updated Contingency Pro-forma

Contingency pro-formas have been updated in accordance with National Grid’s requirements. Separate forms are used for entries and trades, and for DM exits.

71376: Company Logo

The logo has been moved from the 'main screen' to the top left of the application to increase its visibility.

72084: Period Nominations

It is possible to now select and nominate both entries and exits simultaneously. The default option on which to base the nominations has been changed to 'Forecast'.

74993: DFN faxes for IP nominations

CodeRunner will now allow you to print Deemed Flow Notifications for Bacton IPs only (IUK and BBL). National Grid will accept these from 13th August 2017.

62340: Regional Date Settings

Regional date settings on local machines other than the standard expected en-GB settings were causing errors and loss of functionality when trying to log into CodeRunner. There is now a dialog box that alerts you to this if such settings are in place.

69548: Import of Swing Nominations

If a Weekly Policy Load was incorrectly imported for the current week rather than week ahead it would over-write the existing nominations. An error message will now be displayed if an attempt is made to import a WPL for a time other than week-ahead.

Fixes

62580: IP nominations

CodeRunner and Gemini were applying different rounding logic to the IP values subjected to the temperature conversion, resulting in small kWh discrepancies in calculated totals. CodeRunner has been adjusted to calculate in line with Gemini to avoid this.

62669: Swing Nominations by Gas day

When editing a swing contract incorrect data was consequently showing on the 'Swing nominations by Gas Day' form. This has now been fixed.

67433: Swing Contract Expiry

Occurred when importing swing nominations directly to the CodeRunner database. If a nomination was for a gas day beyond the expiry date of its contract, the import was accepted but CodeRunner became unusable. This bug is not found when importing via the usual import service or the UI. Alerts have been added to avoid this.

68748: Importing CVA Data

Importing CVA data where a sub-terminal location is incorrectly configured or absent caused a stack overflow. A dialog box will now pop up to allow editing of the sub-terminal in question.

71063: Default Screen Positioning

Occasionally when logging back into Gemini at 05:00 the default CodeRunner screens would reopen in different positions, often outside of the immediate viewer. This has now been fixed.

71065: CVA Claims

A bug whereby conversions within CodeRunner failed if a CVA Claim value was close to zero (quantity smaller than 10^-10) has now been fixed.

71840: Saving NDM Forecasts

A rare bug whereby CodeRunner was simultaneously accessing and saving duplicated NDM forecasts with identical timestamps was discovered. The database table has been changed to provide a unique index to prevent duplicate data.

CodeRunner: 8.4.15

New Features

Fixes

63969: Project Nexus Trials - UIG By LDZ

The 'UIG by LDZ' screen has had a number of improvements to make it clearer and easier to use.

63474: Project Nexus Trials - Negative UIG Values

CodeRunner now correctly handles negative UIG values when refreshing Gemini Balance.

65457: Swing Nominations, IPs and Nominate To

Swing Nominations at IP locations now respect the 'Nominate To' setting for the Counterparty.

65340: Within-Day Renominations of Zero

Under certain rare circumstances, Gemini continues to return a 'Nominated' value for IP locations for an hour that has passed. This value is now correctly ignored if it is older than the latest 'Scheduled' value.

64543: Beach Swing and Trade Last Contract

The Beach Swing and Trade screen now correctly shows the subcontracts of the most recently added contract.

62674: Exported Deliveries Precision

A precision issue has been fixed where the expected deliveries could be exported even though they had not changed.

63217: Beach Check Algorithm

Beach Check calculations now reflect National Grid methodology for calculating transit charges where one terminal on a short-haul tariff uses 0/25 reference conditions.

CodeRunner: 8.4.09

New Features

60496: Bacton IP Temperature Conversion

Nominations and Capacity checks at Bacton IP will be done using EU-mandated 0/25 reference conditions from 1st May 2016. To support this, Terminals and Exit Points can now be configured as transitioning to 0/25 from 1st May. All quantities at 0/25 will be labelled as such. CodeRunner balance calculations will convert the 0/25 values to 15/15 before including them. A conversion factor of 0.999 is used.

61257: Unidentified Gas for LDZ Shippers

Unidentified Gas is currently planned to come into use on 1st October 2016. Unidentified Gas values are now saved in the database. There is a new drilldown screen which shows your Unidentified Gas breakdown by LDZ. This data comes from a new API, and therefore attempting to view the drilldown before the API is live will fail with an appropriate error.

61744: Activity Maintenance

The filter at the top of Activity Maintenance has been changed. The activity box now contains more information, and can be sorted by number or by description.

61383: Gemini Balance Default Unit

The Gemini Balance screen will initially display data in Therms rather than kWh. The default unit is configurable on the Maintenance > Options screen. A warning will be shown when the screen is not in its default unit.

61326: Physical Position Screen supports NBP

If a swing contract includes NBP and at least one physical location, shortfalls can be entered at the NBP as well as at the physical location(s).

61246: Physical Position Permission

The physical position screen now has its own user permissions setting. This is initially set to the value of the 'Swing Nominations' permission, as this is what previously controlled this functionality.

61332: Trade Matching

Trade Matching no longer contains entirely blank lines when a nomination of zero has been rejected. Instead a zero will be displayed in the Nominated column.

Fixes

56189: Forecast Updates

Some rare situations where the forecast value could be temporarily out of date have been fixed.

61711: Gas Day Summary

The Gas Day Summary screen once again includes storage activities.

61256: Gemini Nomination Pending Alert and Counterparty Tolerances

A forecast-nominated difference within a counterparty's tolerance will no longer trigger the alert.

61462: IP Nominations Creation Timestamp

IP nominations are rejected if their creation timestamp is after Gemini's current time. To work around this, CodeRunner now generates all its creation timestamps for IP nominations as 3 minutes before the current time.

60884: Period Nominations at IPs

Period nominations should now always nominate IPs. Using period nominations to nominate forecasts now correctly nominates the forecast value for subsequent days when the first gas day has a zero forecast.

61309: Sense Check

Sense Check should now always display all IP locations on the Entry Capacity Check tab.

61276: Swing and Trade

The 'NBP Swing and Trade' and 'Beach Swing and Trade' screens can now be open at the same time.

61523: Trading: Activity Column

The 'Activity' column on the Trading screen now correctly reflects the 'Nominate To' setting on the counterparty.

61523: Trading: Default Gas Day

Adding a new Shaped Trade will correctly default the new trade to the selected gas day.

61523: Trading: Pressing Apply

Pressing the 'Apply' button followed by the 'OK' button on the 'Create New Shaped Trade' screen no longer creates two shaped trades.

60158: Removed: Unused Reports

The 'Corby Allocations' report and the 'Finance' report were removed, as they were no longer in use.

60158: Removed: Print Nominations

The 'Print Nominations' option has been removed from Maintenance > Options. Nominations can be printed for contingency by turning on contingency mode, or for a DFN by using the Print DFN button.

60158: Removed: Load NTS Nominations

The 'Load NTS Nominations' screen has been removed. All such data is being loaded automatically by the Gemini Balance screen.

60158: Removed: Transistion Options

Options built to allow smooth transitions on 1st Oct 2015 and 1st Nov 2015 have been removed. This includes: 'New Terminal' for a subterminal (now always at the new terminal), and 'Poll IP web services' (now always on).

CodeRunner: 8.3.03

New Features

59516: Estimated Values

Estimated values at exit points are currently planned to come into use on 1st October 2016. The Nominations screen now supports the 'Estimated' values if Gemini returns them. A new alert has been added which appears if estimated values exist on Gemini.

59515: Unidentified Gas

Unidentified Gas for LDZ shippers is currently planned to come into use on 1st October 2016. Unidentified Gas values have been added the main summary screen, the Gemini Balance screen, and a number of reports which include these same values. Note that CodeRunner does not yet support downloading and importing the correct Unidentified Gas values from Gemini.

59614: Nominating VLDMCs (15 minute lead time)

VLDMC activities can now be set to the next hour bar if you are still outside the 15-minute lead time. The default start time remains unchanged as being a clear hour.

59777: Nomination History

The Nomination History screen now sorts the nominations by when they were submitted, rather than by the start time they were submitted for. This makes the screen clearer when DFNs are submitted, as these have a start hour of 05:00.

59578: Past Nominations

The Nominations screen now allows you to view (read-only) data for days in the past.

60059: Rejected Nominations

The behaviour around rejected nominations has been changed. Rather than popping up a detail screen, CodeRunner now only displays the 'NBP Rejected Trade' alert. This alert has been turned on by default as part of the upgrade. Clicking on the 'NBP Rejected Trade' alert will now take you to the Trade Matching screen. The Trade Matching screen now includes information about any nominations you sent that were rejected, in addition to information about your counterparty's rejected nominations.

60046: Service IDs

The Gemini Entry and Exit Service IDs can now be edited on the Maintenance > Options screen.

Fixes

60232: Capacity Usage

The capacity usage screen no longer displays an additional row collating all the points with capacity disabled.

55796: Required Files Missing

If the required GeminiConfig.config file is missing, CodeRunner now provides a more user friendly report of the problem.

60284: Swing Nominations Import

An issue has been fixed around weekly swing nominations being imported into CodeRunner after a shortfall has been entered.

CodeRunner: 8.2.05

New Features

57947: Nomination History Changes

The Nomination History screen now contains a full history of nominations that CodeRunner has seen, rather than just your current (profiled) position. IP nominations are now included on the screen, and the screen now displays the numerical value of each change, in addition to the percentage. A filter has also been added for 'All', 'Physical' or 'NBP'. The screen defaults to 'Physical'.

55033: Toolbar

The toolbar has been expanded with more links to commonly-used screens (Trade Import, Trading, Swing Nominations by Gas Day, Shortfalls, Trade Matching, and Matching and Scheduling), and moved from the 'CodeRunner' screen to just below the menu. A Gemini Exit login button has also been added.

57411: About Screen

The 'Help > About' screen now contains much more information when the new 'Environment' button is pressed.

58899: Gemini Balance

The 'Shipper Preliminary Balance' screen has been renamed 'Gemini Balance'. This screen is now opened automatically on successfully logging into Gemini.

56412: Gemini Logger

The Gemini Logger now also includes login and logout messages.

58744: Main Screen

The labels that are links on the main screen (e.g. Shortfall amount) are now more obviously links, and only require a single click.

57926: Matching and Scheduling

The default filter for this screen is once again set to 'All'.

58813: Menu Items

There are now two menu items for logging into Gemini. The existing one has been renamed (Main), as this contains most of the Gemini APIs. The Exit Capacity API can now also been accessed from the menu, and is labelled (Exit Capacity).

57567: Nominations

The 'Start Time' field is now disabled until the renomination window is open. This better reflects the fact that Gemini treats all nominations submitted before this time as starting from 05:00.

57844: Removed Screens

We have removed the Pipeline Maintenance and Services Maintenance screens, as these no longer serve any purpose.

55092: Sense Check

The 'Entry' tab on sense check now breaks down IP subterminals into their constituent nominations.

55982: Trade Import Performance

Performance improvements have been made to the trade import system (via Excel and via XML).

58558: Weekly Policy Load

The Weekly Policy Load now displays a progress bar while it is running.

Fixes

57726: Daily Bids and Scaleback

Clicking 'Check Gemini' multiple times no longer keeps adding more rows to the grid.

58405: Error Reporting on Database Disconnect

Errors caused by connectivity issues with the CodeRunner database now contain more detailed information.

55813: Gemini Balance

A number of fixes have been made to how the screen loads data. This should drastically reduce the extent to which CodeRunner and Gemini can get out of sync.

57262: IP Exit Capacity

Capacity checks where multiple exit points share capacity are now displayed correctly on the capacity usage and capacity summary screens. (This currently affects only the Moffat location with flows to both adjacent TSOs.)

59113: Monthly Summary Report

The Monthly Summary Report screen now includes IP values.

CodeRunner: 8.1.26

New Features

57788: Imported Forecasts

DM forecasts imported from excel and csv files are now created with the correct default start time of 05:00.

57799: Loading Moffat Nominated and Scheduled Values

Loading of this information now works correctly for shippers who are active at Moffat against both GNI and PTL network operators.

Fixes

CodeRunner: 8.1.24

New Features

57708: Exit Capacity Bids

Updated the sample bid windows to contain the latest bid windows from National Grid.

Fixes

CodeRunner: 8.1.23

New Features

57708: Exit Capacity Bid Windows

Exit capacity bid windows can now be configured in the GeminiConfig.config file in the same way as entry capacity bid windows.

Fixes

57553: Data Exchange Service Performance

Importing Shaped Trades via the Service should now be considerably faster and use less memory.

57294: IP Capacity Bids

IP Capacity Bids are no longer highlighted as missing from Gemini on the Daily Bids & Scaleback screen. Gemini does not provide this information.

57456: IP Information on Shipper Preliminary Balance

Fixed an error that could occur under specific conditions where a Swing CVs error would be raised when nominating with Shipper Preliminary Balance open.

57628: Nomination Start Hour

The nominations screen should once again correctly default to the latest of the next available hour bar and the last nominated hour.

57636: Nomination Start Hour

The nominations screen should once again correctly default to the latest of the next available hour bar and the last nominated hour.

57686: Reports

Fixed an issue outputting numbers to Excel reports as text. They should now be correctly exported as numbers.

CodeRunner: 8.1.18

New Features

57360: Counterparty Maintenance

This screen now includes the ability to configure shipper codes for use in IP nominations.

56795: 'Nominate To' in Adjacent TSOs

This option can be enabled at Adjacent TSO level. It allows nominations against multiple counterparties to be aggregated against a single shipper code in all IP nominations with that adjacent TSO.

Fixes

CodeRunner: 8.1.15

New Features

53984: Overview: Support for IP Locations

CodeRunner now supports IP locations from 1st October. Subterminals and Exit Points can be marked to become IPs on 1st October, and need an EIC code if they are marked as such. This data filters through to a large number of screens in CodeRunner; the largest changes were made to the Sense Check, Nominations, and Matching & Scheduling screens.

53984: Overview: Support for IP Locations

CodeRunner now supports the capacity changes coming into force on 1st November around IP capacity. Each exit point will automatically transition to using IP capacity if it is an IP location, whereas terminals always get their capacity from a single source. Subterminals can be configured to move terminal on 1st November to assist with the transition.

53984: Activities

Activities for Bacton will automatically be set to have an end date of 1st October at part of the upgrade. Other activities becoming IPs on 1st October (most notably those at Moffat) will need to be expired manually. This can be done on the Maintenance > Activities screen.

54536: Adjacent TSOs

A new maintenance screen for the various Adjacent TSOs has been added. Each IP location needs an adjacent TSO. Counterparty codes within that TSO will need to be configured to make IP nominations with that Counterparty.

55534: Alerting

Various alerts are now also triggered when IP locations have the corresponding issue. This includes Gemini Nominations Pending alert, Beach Gas Alert, Terminal Beach Gas Alert and the Capacity Breach Alert.

54537: Beach Checks

Beach Checks are now more configurable. Rather than using a single terminal and its linked exit points, a number of terminals and exit points can be linked together to form a check. This is most immediately useful to perform shorthaul checks between the new terminals after the Bacton split.

54537: Beach Checks

These checks are now used for the Terminal Beach Gas Alert, as well as the Beach Gas tab on the Sense Check screen.

56637: Capacity Bid Types

CodeRunner supports modelling of the various new capacity bid types required for IP locations. These are IPAYSEC, IPAQSEC, IPRMSEC, IPDADSEC, IPWDDSEC, IPDISEC and DBSEC. (Note that only aggregate capacity entitlements are downloaded from Gemini, not individual bids.)

56763: Capacity Usage

The capacity usage screen is now sorted alphabetically.

54604: Gemini APIs

This release includes the four new Gemini APIs used for IP locations: add/update nominations, get nominations, and get capacity entitlements (for entry and exit capacity). This will need to be turned on via Maintenance > Options before they can be used.

54537: Location Maintenance

Exit points no longer have a 'Link to Terminal' box, as this functionality was replaced by the Beach Checks maintenance screen. The configuration is migrated to the new format as part of the upgrade, so current behaviour will be unchanged.

52789: Location Maintenance

Exit Points and Subterminals can now be marked as Interconnection Points, and will need an EIC code entered. Points marked as such will transition to becoming IPs on 1st October.

56603: Location Maintenance

Subterminals can be configured to change which terminal they are part of on 1st November. This is required for Bacton to split into two terminals on this date as part of the capacity changes.

56777: Matching & Scheduling

Matching and Scheduling now defaults to a new filter 'Attention'. This shows any highlighted row- whether because the nomination isn't yet scheduled, or because there is a mismatch.

55416: Nominations

The Nominations screen in contingency mode now hides the Nominate button, and instead displays two new buttons: Print Fax and Export Excel. These have the same behaviour as the Nominate button used to, but in a clearer form.

54297: Options

'My EIC Code' can now be configured, as this is required for IP nominations

54686: Swing Contracts

Swing Contracts can now be marked as staying 6-6, to allow faxes to the other parties to be generated correctly. A strategy for converting these 6-6 numbers into 5-5 numbers will need to be configured. Only a single strategy is available at this time: Align Values (6am nominated as 5am).

Fixes

55087: Counterparties Maintenance

Renaming a counterparty should once again behave correctly.

54601: Nominations static data refresh

The Nominations screen should now immediately reflect counterparty configuration changes made to the client in question. Other clients will need to wait for the refresh interval as before.

55002: Swing Contract Nomination Imports

When a swing nomination is imported via the service, nominations for later in the day are now correctly replaced.

CodeRunner: 8.0.16

New Features

51447: Gas Day Change

CodeRunner now knows that the gas day will start at 5am from 1st October 2015. It is notable that this date can be changed via a script if necessary.

52148: Locations Maintenance

A new 'Locations' maintenance screen has been added, replacing the Terminals, Subterminals, LDZs and Exit Points screens. All four of these things are now configured on a single screen.

51703: Removing Obsolete Screens

A number of obsolete screens have been removed: INS Nominations, Manual Reports, Quick Nominations and Transco Balance.

51817: Swing Contracts by Gas Day

Swing Nominations will now always be created or edited by gas day, rather than sometimes by calendar day.

52663: Gemini Code Mandatory for Capacity

The 'Gemini Code' for a Terminal and Exit Point is now mandatory if capacity checking is enabled.

51270: Preliminary Interconnection Point Support

Some features have been added to allow support for IP to be added in a future release. This includes EIC codes on counterparties and locations, deadlines for IPs on National Grid Parameters, and the ability to mark a location as an IP.

52396: Nominations Screen Redesign

The nominations screen has been redesigned. The screen is now intended only to be used for nominating to Gemini, and as such contains less information. Both Entry and Exit nominations can now be done simultaneously.

52396: Nominations Screen Redesign

Automatic selecting of Pending nominations is now enabled via an option. This option is enabled by default.

53267: Matching and Scheduling

A new screen has been added to help with displaying Matching and Scheduled values. This replaces this function of the previous Nominations screen. The screen displays Nominated values, Scheduled values, the nominated Start Hour, and the value nominated by counterparty for trades. This is displayed for both Entry and Exit services.

52157: Period Nominations

Period Nominations is now a stand-alone screen instead of being linked to Nominations. It can be opened from the Operations menu.

54533: Updated DFN Template

The DFN template has been updated to include the current nominated value as well as the new value to meet the new National Grid policy.

54432: Update default bid windows

The default bid windows for capacity bids have been updated to be the new values that went live 1st April 2015.

52611: Performance

CodeRunner has received various performance improvements.

52611: Pending Nominations

Added an option to not automatically check all the nominations on the nominations form.

Fixes

51760: Database Version Messages

The message stating the database version is incorrect now always displays both the current version and the required client version.

52024: Maintenance Screens

The various maintenance screens should now have consistent behaviour regarding when the save button is enabled.

53657: Ini file shouldn't require 'Local' if 'ConnectionString' is present

The CodeRunner.ini file no longer requires [Options]Local to be present if [Options]ConnectionString is present, as it is not required.
