FIX Orchestra was conceived as machine readable rules of engagement between counterparties. As such, it is a standard for exchange of metadata about the behaviour of FIX applications. Orchestra is intended to cut time to onboard counterparties and improve accuracy of implementations.
FIX Orchestra does not change FIX protocol itself in any way, nor does it obsolete existing FIX engines or tools.
Issues for corrections and proposed enhancements may be entered for future versions within the FIX Orchestra GitHub project: https://github.com/FIXTradingCommunity/fix-orchestra
More information on the work from the FIX Orchestra Subgroup can be found here.
The proposed technical standard for FIX Orchestra is following the technical standards review process described in the document found here.
