How to trigger Empty Slot Data Flow (ESDF) so that DMRs are up to date?

If a permit is updated or terminated in ICIS, they do not get automatically updated in NetDMR.

For ICIS and NetDMR to be in sync, Regulatory Authority (RA) must manually trigger an Empty Slot Data Flow (ESDF). For example, if a RA updates permitted features, limit sets, or limit parameters, including re-issuance of permits in ICIS Production, then the RA should manually trigger an ESDF in ICIS the following day.

*Please wait one day for the update in permit limits to show in NetDMR.


How to request an Empty Slot Data Flow (ESDF):

      1. Select Network Activity under View menu

      2. Enter date range to submit a DMR refresh

      3. Check status under Network Activity

      4. Scroll down to View Exchange Network Activity


      5. To ensure that the ESDF has ran successfully, here’s how you can check the following day (must wait 1 day):

        RA can go to ‘Request Access'→enter permit ID→ click Update →Enter Permitted Feature click update →enter limit set →click update.

        RA should be able to see the correct range of dates for the ‘Monitoring Period End Date’, which should match exactly with ICIS.

        Please make sure to cancel the request after checking the correct monitoring period end date.

ICIS Data Access will update ICIS Stage with ICIS Production data (permit info, limits, etc.), which will ultimately update data NetDMR Test.
