This guide describes other Galileo APIs to monitor and approve ACH transactions, as well as <<glossary:CST>> controls for ACH accounts and transactions.

## Events API webhooks for ACH

Depending on product configuration, ACH events may trigger when an ACH transaction fails. Different events are triggered depending on the direction of the transaction and whether it debits or credits the receiver’s account.

See <a href="ref:api-reference-events-api-transaction-events-index" target="_blank">Transaction Events Index</a> for more information on these events.

## External Trans API for ACH

You can choose to approve or deny incoming ACH debit requests via the External Trans API <a href="ref:webhook_ach_debit_post" target="_blank">ACH Debit Webhook</a>. When you reject an incoming debit request, Galileo initiates an ACH return. If you do not respond to an incoming debit request, additional requests will be sent until you respond or the maximum number of attempts has been reached. In the latter case, an ACH return will be initiated.

When a transaction requires approval, it is posted in the <<glossary:CST>> on the _ACH Returns_ page (**System Administration > Other Tools > ACH Returns**). During product setup, the ACDBX parameter must be set to approve or deny ACH returns via the External Trans API.

## Using the CST for ACH

The <<glossary:CST>> has tools to help you manage ACH accounts, transactions, and returns. This section describes ACH controls in the CST _Account_ tab and the _System Administration_ tab.


Some controls may not be available for all users, depending on your administrator’s Roles and Rights settings.

### Account controls

In the CST _Account_ tab, you can manage ACH accounts linked to a customer’s account, view ACH transactions and returns, and manage automated ACH handling. This table describes ACH controls in the CST _Account_ tab.
