Requests

Authorization / Authentication

Apps using Access Token Authorization

Use a valid access token in a Authorization: Bearer request header.

See Authenticating with an Access Token for more details.

Apps using ECDSA Authentication

This endpoint requires an authsignature header, but no usersignature in the header or request body. See the section on ECDSA Authentication for more detail about ECDSA signature generation.

Note - We recently renamed the field auth_handle to app_handle. For backward compatibility, auth_handle is still valid but has been removed from our documentation.

Using the UUIDs

Please be aware that the UUID values for business types will differ between the sandbox and production environments. If you anticipate using a hard-coded or cached list of UUIDs, ensure that you maintain a separate list for each environment.
