In the modern world, software application development has changed tremendously, which leads to the complex deployment of applications in production. This eventually leads us to hundreds and thousands of services to keep the large-scale applications running. So how do we understand the journey of an API request?
Open finance can be a confusing term to be thrown at. We suggest that you get your hands on APIs and get testing to understand our products and services better. We do have our Sales and Customer Support team on standby to help you fit the product and services that best suit your business. Here are the 5 steps:
1. Register an account on Brank.as
You can run APIs in a sandbox environment on any Brankas products such as Direct, Statement, Disburse and more on the Brankas Dashboard. There are no requirements to test Brankas APIs, simply sign up, visit brank.as/sign-up and fill the required fields.
Log in, create API Key and immediately start testing our APIs!
2. Save Your Business Details
Next, we suggest that you have your business information saved to enable you to:
- Add destination account for Direct - Using Direct API
- Save your Callback URL
To save your business information on the Brankas Dashboard, click on Settings and save your business information in the Business tab.
3. Create API Key
We highly suggest that you test Brankas APIs available on docs.brank.as . To start testing, generate API key on your Brankas Dashboard like so:
Click on the API key menu
Input your login password in the field and an API key will be generated.
Copy the API key to saved location. For security purposes, Brankas will not be storing any API keys generated. We highly suggest keeping it safe on your machine.
Do note that when a new API key is generated on either staging or live environments, the previous API key will be made invalid.
4. Saving Callback URL
Callback URLs or webhooks are important to retrieve the status endpoint of each API transaction. You can set up your callback by following this step by step guide below:
Click on the Settings menu and Callback URL tab
Enter your callback URL and hit Save Changes.
Tips: You can generate a testing callback URL in webhook.site as well if you do not already have an infrastructure ready.
5. Invite Your Team!
Lastly, bring the party over and invite your team members on to Brankas Dashboard, give them a feel of Brankas products. There are several user roles available. Here’s how to invite your team members:
Click on the User menu.
Click on Invite New User.
Fill user information.
Assign user roles. There are 5 user roles available.
