Senate Matching Custodian Onboarding Journey


The on-boarding journey for Senate Matching can be broken down into four steps:

Senate Matching Onboarding

1. Setup & Configure

In this step, you will choose the best hosting pattern (on-prem vs cloud) for your organisation's needs, set up your Contributor Node, and configure your node to communicate with the Senate Matching network.

2. Testing

In this step, you will load test data to the Senate Matching Network in order to test your configuration and connectivity.

3. Load Personal Information (PI)

In this step, you will perform your first load of real PI into the Senate Matching Network and receive your tokens back.

4. Execute a Senate Matching Project

In this step, you will load your tokens and attributes into Senate, and approve your first match.

Maintenance and Optimization


Once you've done your first project, your organization may want to better automate the ongoing maintenance of the Senate Matching process. You can find a guide with advice on how to do this here.
