An Electronic Guidebook (EGB) fully describes the internal business requirements that need to be published to the relevant distribution channels in order to gather and transmit a complete Credit Application.
A key component of LIXI 2 is the LIXI Electronic Guidebook Standard (in the form of an XML Schema Definition). This standard provides a mechanism for publishing an Electronic Guidebook in a manner that can be used to easily generate a Credit Application message in XML format that conforms to the LIXI 2 standard for Credit Applications.
The EGB standard covers three general areas:
- a description of the data required by the lender and how each element maps back to the relevant LIXI 2 Transaction Standard;
- a definition of how the lender expects to see both on-screen and print forms (layout, order, field names etc); and
- rules about the product and the submission of an application including various validation rules.
The initial release of the LIXI EGB Standard is available to members and licensees here: LIXI EGB 2.0.0 Standard.
