OTCnet Local Bridge Step 6 – How to Import OLB


Welcome to this Just-in-Time video
training series on the OLB setup process. In this video, we will be demonstrating
how to import an OLB profile. To understand where importing an OLB profile falls in the OLB setup process, please feel free to pause the video at this point. In order to import our OLB profile, we need to: launch the OLB
application, locate the OLB credentials file, and upload the OLB credentials file. Before demonstrating how to import an OLB profile, a quick reminder that check processing users such as Check Capture
Administrators, Check Capture Supervisors, Check Capture Lead Operators, and Check Capture Operators, need to create their own OLB profiles. This will allow access
for the OLB installed on their workstations. Just like you have your own
unique login for a workstation, you need a unique login for the OLB. After OLB
profiles have been created and saved on a workstation, we need to import the
profiles into the OLB installed on the workstation. This will allow us to
log in and run the OLB. In this video, we are demonstrating how to import an
already created OLB profile. If you need help creating an OLB profile,
please see a previous video demonstrating how to create an OLB
profile. To import your OLB profile, we need to first start the OLB. A login window will appear. Click on “File” in the top left hand corner, and select “Import User Profile” in the drop down. Another window will appear, prompting for us to
locate the user profile file for upload. We’ll need to locate the OLB credential
file, also known as the “.ini file” that we saved when we created our OLB profile. In this demonstration, I saved it to my Desktop. After locating and selecting the file,
click “import.” A window will appear, confirming the successful import of the user profile. You can now click “OK” As a friendly reminder, each of these
demonstrated steps to import your OLB credential file, (also known as the ini
file) need to be repeated each time you reset your OLB password. Also, every check processing user needs to import their own OLB profile in order to access the
OLB installed on their workstation. To recap, in this video we demonstrated how to import an OLB profile by: launching the OLB application, locating the OLB credentials file, and uploading the OLB credentials file. For further information,
please visit the Fiscal Service website, where you can find these and
other resources to assist you in the OLB setup process. The next step in the OLB setup process is learning to start and stop the OLB, which will be demonstrated in a following video. Thank you for watching, we hope this video has been a
helpful resource. Please visit the Fiscal Service website for further information.
