If you are using T2 Systems as your parking provider in Pay-by-Plate Sync, you must import the required queries.

What you should know

There are five different queries you must import into the T2 Flex system. You can download these queries from a special Genetec download link. After you import the queries into the T2 system, the system creates five “Query UID” values that you must enter into Security Center Config Tool. These UID values are used by the Pay-by-Plate Sync plugin to communicate with T2 Systems.
NOTE: This section describes how to import queries using version 7.5.168 of the T2 Flex application. If you are using a different version of T2 Flex, the steps below may be slightly different. For more information refer to the T2 Flex Configuration documentation available at http://knowledgebase.t2systems.com:8080/knowbase?topicUri=/Content/en-US/Live_KB/Other/T_INT_GEN_LPR_Flex_config.xml.
IMPORTANT: To use these queries, your permits must contain a Valid Location field and a Vehicle field. If your permits do not include these fields, T2 Systems must create new custom queries for you to import. For more information, contact T2 Systems technical support.
The five query files you need to import are the following:
  • GetFacilitiesQuery.qry
  • GetPermitsQuery.qry
  • GetPermitsForPlateQuery.qry
  • GetPermitsByModDateQuery.qry
  • GetAllPermitsForPlateInAllFacilities.qry

Procedure
