1. The ‘Search’ tab will allow you to search the archive for items. This will reflect information held in the Image Clearing System (ICS) Image Archive and will be restricted to information relevant to your business (i.e. remitted by the agency or an incoming credit/debit for the agency). Please note, there is a cost associated with this functionality on the screen.
      Upon opening the screen, no results will be displayed. The ‘Search’ button will be enabled when one or more search criteria has been entered, one of which must be the item date.
    2. In this area the possible search criteria options are:
      • Date of Work (range from/to)
      • Unique item identifier
      • Workflow status (dropdown list to allow filtering of current in-clearing / out-clearing or historic)
      • Submission channel

      Search archive
    3. Debit/Credit Search Options:
      • Item amount
      • Item reference / serial
      • Item sort code (range from/to)
      • Item account number
      • Item status (dropdown list – paid / unpaid)
    4. Transaction set identifier:
      • Item identifier
      • Transaction identifier
    5. Click ‘Search’ to activate your search
    6. Click ‘Clear Search’ to begin a new search


    Please note that clicking an ‘enabled’ Kappa icon within a result on the Search screen will not display the Kappa/fraud profile. This is because the Kappa service will only return the fraud profile if there are suspect frauds received today for the sort code and account number given. You can view the Kappa profile of items currently in in-clearing on the Incoming Debits and Credits screens.
