About Auth API

Auth API is a webhook that allows clients to participate in the authorization decision making process.

Galileo receives authorizaton requests for transactions, and uses various criteria for deciding whether to approve or deny the request (correct PIN, sufficient funds, etc.). Near the end of the authorization request processing, Galileo can call out to a client system, providing it with information about the authorization request (including how it plans to handle the request); the client can respond with how it would like the authorization request to be processed.
