    • DATAWISE Reports is a website containing analytical trading and post-trade data on OTC assets
  • Can I disclose DATAWISE data to people outside the contracting company?

    No, the data contained in DATAWISE is for exclusive use in internal activities.

  • What is CAU?

    The Unified Access Control (CAU) system is used by DATAWISE to manage the products available (DATAWISE Dashboards, DATAWISE Insights and DATAWISE Reports) and contracted users.

  • What is the classification of companies in the DATAWISE (internet and Extranet)?
    • Internet: Listed companies, startups and asset managers, among other companies that do not have a VPN or RCB connection with B3, have created users who can access B3’s DATAWISE database.

    • Extranet: Trading participants (Custody Agents, PN, PNP, etc.) who have a VPN or RCB connection with B3 and choose the extranet profile upon contracting. These participants are entitled to have privileged users who are the institution's users with an administrative role within DATAWISE allowing the creation or deletion of users and linking the product profile to them.

  • Who benefits from CAU?

    Companies with an extranet profile, i.e., banks and brokerage houses using a VPN or RCB connection with B3 that choose to have an administrative profile within the CAU system have at least one privileged user. The user in this profile is the company responsible for managing the institution's users (creation or exclusion) and DATAWISE product profiles.

  • Can the CAU system’s privileged user link the profile to the user itself or to other privileged users?

    No, only B3 can link the profile to the institution's privileged users.

  • How does access for conglomerate institutions work?

    Access to the DATAWISE product is done via CAU when the companies are extranets, the privileged of the companies act by provisioning the registration in the CAU. In the case of internet companies, B3 is responsible for the registration.

    This registration situation of CAU works for conglomerates in the sense that, if it is a Brazilian extranet company, the participation in the registration is the responsibility of the participant and its affiliates, whether local or global. If it is an internet company, the registration is done by B3, be it the local or global conglomerate.

    Thus, the registration itself does not change because it is a global or local company, however, regardless of whether it is a conglomerate or not, there are three licenses for each contract. 3 for DATAWISE Dashboards, 3 for DATAWISE Insights and unlimited for DATAWISE Reports

  • How does service release work?

    The release of the service depends on the profile of the contracting company (internet and extranet), in which for internet companies the release is made exclusively by B3, while for extranets there is the action of B3 and the privileged user. For more information about the release, please access the DATAWISE release stage item on the tab.

  • How do I change the users who can have access to DATAWISE products?

    In DATAWISE there are specific annexes for user modifications and to modify them, simply fill in the attachment by selecting the option you would like (inclusion or exclusion) and sending it to the hiring team at the email contratacao@b3.com.br. The following is the direction of these attachments by DATAWISE module:

    • Annex III: corresponds to the DATAWISE Dashboard module
    • Annex V: corresponds to the DATAWISE Reports module
