Data type change

Nullable values in the Auth API

We now specify that the merchant_state and terminal_network fields in the merchant object of the Auth API are nullable.

Phone country codes enumeration

We've added a Phone Validation page to show the valid values for mobileCountryCode and the regex that validates the corresponding mobile number.

STPA event clarification

We clarified the circumstances that trigger the STPA: auth_stip_advice event.

Mark cards and accounts as delinquent

A new type for Modify Status changes the specified account to status: Q (delinquent).

New transaction types enumeration formatting

We overhauled the format of the Transaction Types enumeration to make it easier to find the otypes you're looking for.

Reports for installment loans

In Reports for Installment Loans, we added additional detail about when the report files are generated and what activity is included. We also specified that the Daily Loan Status file reports and loan ID specific. Lastly, we added three new possible values for the source of the payment on the loan.

Billpay parameter recommendation

In Creating a Billpay Transaction, we added a recommendation for passing billerState in the Search Biller Directory call to help distinguish between billers with the same name.

Card freeze events

We clarified that when a card freeze expires, the UFRZ: unfrozen event is not sent.

SFTP connection change

We updated the information about SFTP connections to say that we use SSH keys instead of username and password in About the Raw Data Files (RDFs).

UPDATE: The instances of CDF in this entry were changed to RDF.
