PJM will be performing a security update and retirements on Wednesday, August 15.
To enhance security, the PJM corporate website address and subsidiary sites will change from http to https beginning at 5 p.m. At that time, users who still try to access pages that begin with http will be automatically redirected to the new https pages. Users with hardcoded links or screen scraping should update their systems to retrieve from the valid https link. For more info on the affected sites, visit the Tools Outage Information page.
PJM introduced a new tool, Data Miner 2, to assist with public data feeds in 2017. Several feeds hosted on pjm.com will retire after 2 p.m. on August 15. PJM will remove the historic files associated with these feeds from pjm.com and ftp on August 17. Users are expected to update all data feed retirements (XLS) to Data Miner 2 feeds.
In addition to the pjm.com feed retirements, the original Data Miner tool will be retired on August 15. All changes noted above have continued to be announced to PJM members and stakeholders at the Tech Change Forum and other stakeholder meetings.
PJM Tools Update
PJM will replace security certificates for PJM Tools in the production environment Aug. 21. To avoid access interruption to PJM Tools, all stakeholders using browserless user interface connections must have their systems updated with the most recent DigiCert intermediate and root certificates.
