If you have received the error such as this:
CLIENT_MATTER_ID "DISP-000001" is invalid. ID must be client authorized.
this message indicates that a Matter number or ID has been used that does not match or does not exist in the client authorized matter list or there is a typo in the matter ID/Number in the LEDES file.
The CLIENT_MATTER_ID must match the Matter Number stored in Collaborati.
To locate the list of matters for your client, follow these steps:
1. Click “Clients” in the top menu bar
2. Choose your client
3. Click the fifth icon from the top on the left navigation menu ("Matters")

This screen will provide you with a list of the matters that are available for you to invoice your client. If you don't see your matter listed, you will need to contact the client and request them to authorize the matter for your law firm. When using the Matter Number, ONLY the information in the Matter Number is required (as shown above).
