Samlink launches API developer portal, supported by XMLdation
XMLdation enables Samlink to create a developer portal that connects developers to Oma Savings Bank, POP Bank and Savings Banks
XMLdation, the leading provider of payment onboarding and testing solutions, announced today that Samlink, leading provider of IT solutions to the financial institutions in Finland, has implemented XMLdation Sandbox application embedded into it’s developer portal. The developer portal can be found here: https://developer.samlink.fi/
Samlink selected XMLdation to enable the testing facilities offered to Third Party Providers related to PSD2 APIs. XMLdation platform was implemented in due time well before the PSD2 deadline on March 14th 2019, helping Samlink to provide a regulatory-compliant solution to it’s bank customers Oma Savings Bank, POP Bank and Savings Banks.
The XMLdation Sandbox supports the following features that developers typically need in order to test their applications against PSD2 API endpoints:
- A segregated testing area will be created for each developer upon registration. A set of test PSUs and accounts for them is created with fresh example data.
- Developers can manage their Sandbox through APIs – registering, resetting, etc. The data in the application is dynamic, ie it is updated as testing proceeds and on Sandbox resets.
- The Sandbox supports the full consent and payment authorization flow based on Oauth2
- Simulation of PSUs, ie customers and their accounts: Developers can authorize consents, payments and payment cancellations as test customers.
“By leveraging XMLdation, Samlink was able to comply with the PSD2 regulation first deadline requirements, saving valuable development time and effort. In addition, developers will value the possibility to create a real, production-like test environments when testing apps against Samlink APIs.” said David Garry, CTO, XMLdation.
