Quickstart Guide

This document explains how to jump start your integration with the Account Information API.

Step 1: Get Access Token

First, you'll need to get your token from the Nordigen's Open Banking Portal.

Step 2: Create end user agreement

N.B. If you are not a verified client (passed manual KYC verification), please skip this step.

First, you need to get the latest version of Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. Provide your access token from Step 1 as YOUR_TOKEN.


Second, you need to create an agreement and pass the end user ID (unique ID defined by you) as the UUID and agreement version ID retrieved in the response above.


Third, you need to expose agreement to an end user and require action from the end user for agreeing on the terms. Once the end user agrees to terms, execute the following command by providing agreement id, user agent and IP address.


First, you need to create a requisition which is a collection of inputs for creating links and retrieving accounts. For all requisition API requests you will need to provide access token from Step 1 as YOUR_TOKEN. You are also required to define the end user ID (unique end user ID defined by you), a reference ID (additional layer of unique ID defined by you) and a redirect link where an end user will be redirected after finishing authentication in ASPSP.

N.B. use the same end user ID from Step 2 if it applies to you.


Second, create a redirect link for the end user to ASPSP. You need to provide aspsp_id which is the unique identifier of the end users bank. See guide on how to build an UI for a user to select a bank and how to find appropriate aspsp_id.


Step 4: List accounts

Once a user is redirected back to the link provided in Step 3, users' bank accounts can be listed. Pass requisition ID to view accounts.


Step 5: Access accounts and transactions

To access account information and transactions, you need to pass account ID. Each account need to be queried separately.
