Please refer to the following resources on the Batch Reporting Procedures page of this website:
Batch Submission Manual for Agents – This document provides information about the batch submission option, the import process, and XML file guidelines.
Agent XML Schema – This document lists of all of the required data fields, organized in the proper format. The Schema may be used to validate your XML file prior to submission.
Agent Schema Help Documentation – This ZIP file (default.html) contains detailed parameters for each data type.
The ZIP file should only contain policy data for the agent (or representative) logging into SLIP.
The ZIP file should include a single XML file for an agent. The XML file should include data for one or more policies.
ZIP files containing anything other than a single XML file will be rejected.
The MSLA batch submission process allows agents to efficiently report a large amount of policy data. The process and related documentation assumes the XML developer has computer programming experience and is familiar with XML and HTTP protocols.
Individuals with no computer programming experience may better-served entering policy data manually through the SLIP Search/Submit screen. Simply log in to SLIP and click on Search/Submit. Select New Policy to enter a new policy into the system.
No. The system will not accept Microsoft Excel files saved as XML Data or XML Spreadsheet file types. Please follow the format described in the XML Export Format & Schema for Agents to create the XML file from your database.
You may test your XML file on the SLIP TEST website to ensure validity prior to official submission through https://slip.msla.org. Contact MSLA for a link, username, and password to SLIP Test.
