FIX 4.3 : Security Status Request <e> message

Structure | Related Messages


The Security Status Request <e> message provides for the ability to request the status of a security. One or more Security Status <f> messages are returned as a result of a Security Status Request <e> message.

The Security Status Request <e> message contains a SubscriptionRequestType <263> field. This tells the counterparty what type of request is being made:

  • 0 - indicates that the requestor only wants a snapshot or the current status.
  • 1 - indicates that the requestor wants a snapshot (the current status) plus updates as the status changes. This is similar to subscribing for information and can be implemented in applications as a subscription mechanism.
  • 2 - indicates that the requestor wishes to cancel any pending snapshots or updates - in essence making this an unsubscribe operation.

SubcriptionRequestType indicates to the other party what type of response is expected. A snapshot request only asks for current information. A subscribe request asks for updates as the status changes. Unsubscribe will cancel any future update messages from the counter party.)
