This very topic is the reason why I started this blog.
Asking for Murex documentation is maybe the number one request, coming from consultants, customers or even internally.
Don’t be fooled, while Murex is a great system it is also complex. The system has loads of configuration options to cater for the numerous market conventions found across the globe. Luckily, as part of the project process, most configurations are already preset or adjusted to answer the requirements.
So let’s address this question that I’ve heard so many times: Can you send me Murex documentation? Or in shortened form: mx doc? k thx bi.
All customers or people in contract with Murex, can access Murex documentation. It is deployed similarly to the application and if properly setup can be accessed with F1 while logged in. It happens sometimes that you’ll have a shortcut on your desk to open it.
The Murex documentation is within a proprietary system and is strongly protected. Don’t expect to print it all out! Most of the time, the documentation is read on the screen with no other support. You have categories, search functions. With a little bit of effort, you should be able to find the information you need.
If the documentation made massive progress over the years and often encompass a lot of information, new or little used functionalities are sometimes undocumented… What to do then?
Ask your preferred Murex contact! He will try to source the information and deliver it to you.
If you do not work for a customer, integrator or Murex directly, then you simply cannot access any Murex documentation. Murex is very protective of its IP and it applies to documentation as well.
“- Hi, Hi need Murex doc asap!
– Press F1 (smart ass reply, often adapted to the question above)”
“- Hi, I can’t find a doc about defining a 4 dimension GMP structure. Can you help?
– Let me come back to you” (and you’ll get the info, example or apologies if this is not possible)
