How do I manually configure my broker in UCS?

To Manually Configure a broker not in UCS list:

Install your broker’s platform. Your broker can assist you if necessary.

For Broker: Select "Other" from the Drop down list.

Next to "Config File", click on the 3 dots to the right to browser for the Config File.

Navigate to your "C:Program Files x86". Here you will have a folder with your brokers name on it.

Press "Open"

Save the configuration and you should be able to successfully connect to this account.

Select the account that you just created from the list, and click “Connect”. This will connect your broker to UCS.
