Discovery is the PPSR environment developed for testing. It is updated for each code release to allow users to test their B2G connection before enhancements are deployed into Production.
Complete the application form
To apply for access to Discovery, you need to email email@example.com and request the PPSR Discovery environment access request form. To complete the form, you need to take note of the following:
- Make sure you tick the access via B2G box when completing the form.
- Supply your external IP address - provide all the external IP addresses that will connect to Discovery. All computers on the same network should have the same external IP address. We whitelist these IP addresses so you can go through the Discovery firewalls.
- List essential IP addresses only - if the IP range(s) in your application appear(s) to be too large, speak to your network administrator. They can determine which IP addresses within the range(s) are essential.
Configure your spam filter
The PPSR sends a number of notifications via email. The volume of notifications from firstname.lastname@example.org may trigger your spam filter. To ensure that you receive all PPSR notifications, whitelist email@example.com.
Create an account
Once your IP address has been whitelisted, we will send you a link to Discovery. You need to access this link and create a Discovery account. If this link does not take you to Discovery, we haven’t whitelisted your IP address yet.
When creating your account, ensure the account payment type selected is pre-pay.
Keep your Discovery and Production transaction details separate
Your Discovery account must be kept separate as it is a test account only. All Discovery data must be kept separate from Production data. This includes:
- account details
- user details
- registration numbers
- registration tokens
- secured party group numbers
- secured party group access codes
- search numbers and search certificate numbers
- transaction numbers.
Connecting to Discovery
Once you have been whitelisted and have created your Discovery account, you will be able to connect to Discovery for the first time.
