What is WebTools?

WebTools is the one-stop shop for sending, receiving and managing data that is passed between market participants over ElectraLink’s Data Transfer Network (DTN) and facilitates all DTN participants to manage their data transfer connection needs effectively.

WebTools is a suite of web-based tools, accessible through your web browser, and provided with your Gateway connection to the DTN. WebTools allows Data Transfer Service (DTS) users to:

  1. Create new routes so you can configure where data is delivered to
  2. View Audit information so you have a real time view of the status of your messages
  3. Re-send data without having to regenerate it
  4. Re-collect without having the sender re-send the data
  5. Generate or edit existing files using a tool called FlowManager
  6. Send messages directly into the DTS using FlowPortal
  7. Manage User accounts
  8. View statistics
  9. Manage Reports


WebTools is part of the regulated DTS service and is, therefore, provided at no extra cost if you have an existing DTS connection. All parties who have a connection to the DTS can use WebTools along with two other services, FlowAlert and FlowPortal, which are both also provided free of charge to all DTS parties.
