Modifies the status of an account, card, or both.
Parameter Required Data type Pattern Notes
transactionId Yes String

60 characters or less


A unique system generated ID number that identifies the API transaction with Galileo Processing systems. A UUID is preferred. This must be different for each transaction.
accountNo Yes String



Can be a PAN (the 16 digit card number), PRN (a unique product Identifier used for internal Galileo processing and added security), or CAD (card_id - an integer identifier of the card as found in RDF, getAccountCards(), and getCard()).
type Yes Integer

Predefined integer value range


Reflects the account and card's current status before modification. See the Account and card status table below.
savingsprodId Conditional N-A



Calls of type 1 Activate account, and type 11 Update account status to active, can send savingsProdId. savingsProdId defines what the savings account prodID will be. (If not passed, prodID will be the value set in the SAVPI product parameter).
startDate Conditional DateTime 2020-02-02 12:22:02 Only used with type=17 (freeze card). Note: if startDate and endDate are not passed with type=17 then the current datetime is used for the startDate.
endDate Conditional DateTime 2020-02-12 10:00:00 Only used with type=17 (freeze card). Note: if startDate and endDate are not passed with type=17 then 24 hours out from the current datetime is used for the endDate.
