Journey Brokers is a Workspaces extension offering a self-service portal for authenticated users, such as brokers acting on behalf of applicants, to manage application creation, respond to follow-up requests, and monitor application progress. Journey Brokers provides an efficient, digital-first method for authenticated non-bank users to have a greater involvement in the application process. By giving users more direct involvement in the application process, Journey Brokers helps to improve the speed and accuracy of the application resolution process.
Journey Brokers works in conjunction with other Workspaces back-office business process functionality including:
- Applications: Review pending applications that require manual intervention as part of the application workflow.
This guide explains how to set up Journey Brokers in Journey Manager, and how to develop and deploy a Journey Brokers client application, including the steps required to configure collaboration jobs to work with Journey Brokers.
To deploy and configure Journey Brokers in your JM environment, you need access to the following resources.
- Journey Manager 21.11 or later with the Workspaces REST API installed.
- A JM user account with privileges for deploying and configuring WAR files.
The Workspaces REST API is included in the Workspaces installation (WAR) file which is bundled with the Journey Manager installation file as an optional package.
If you're deploying Workspaces in a Temenos cloud hosting environment, contact the Temenos cloud hosting team for assistance in configuring the Apache proxy settings to access Journey Brokers after deployment.
It is assumed you are proficient with the Journey Manager platform, collaboration jobs, scripting with Groovy and Fluent functions, and setting up forms in Journey Manager. If you're unfamiliar with any of these, use the links above to learn about them, or contact us to discuss e-Learning and instructor-led training options.
Supported web browsers
Journey Brokers has been designed for and tested against the following desktop web browsers.
- Microsoft Edge
For the best Journey Brokers experience, we recommend using the latest version of a supported web browser, and that you keep your browser updated, especially through the application of security patches. While you may be able to access Journey Brokers using other browsers, there's no guarantee that everything will work, and you may not enjoy the same great user experience that is available when using a supported browser.
One active session
JM allows only one active Journey Brokers session per user. You can login to Journey Brokers on multiple browsers, but only the first browser in which you perform an action will be successful. The second and subsequent browsers in which you attempt an action will report an HTTP
403 Forbidden status code.
IE11 not supported
Journey Brokers support for Internet Explorer is discontinued. For details, see Update on TJM Support for IE11.
