Legacy Plaid Integration - Plaid Token

In Fall 2020, Plaid updated their Plaid Link API. This section is for Sila customers currently integrated with legacy Plaid.

❗️

This public_key-based integration of Plaid Link is being deprecated by Plaid. It is running on Plaid API version 2018-05-22.

Legacy Plaid Overview

The legacy Plaid Link integration involves passing a public_token to our /link_account endpoint. The public_token is retrieved from Plaid's Link Modal. To retrieve a public_key from the modal, you must initialize the modal using Sila's public_key: fa9dd19eb40982275785b09760ab79. The public_key will be passed into the constructor of Plaid's Client object as key.

Plaid Link Modal

The Plaid Link Modal is a front-end modal provided by Plaid. You initiate it on your front-end using Sila's public_key (found above). The customer then opens the modal, enters their account and banking information, and the modal returns to the customer a public_token. This public_token must then be returned to your back-end for use with our /link_account endpoint.
