Nordigen API uses token-based authentication. You'll need the
client_secret assigned to your organisation. These credentials can be found in the Nordigen API Dashboard. To get the token, send the request to https://api.nordigen.com/oauth/token with POST HTTP request body:
|client_id||Your client ID|
|client_secret||Your client secret|
We periodically release new versions. Current version is v2. You can provide specific version in the request URL; e.g.
All error HTTP codes are going to be 4xx or 5xx, so we recommend using success http codes for the control flow and the error codes for informative purposes. If an error has occurred, it will be displayed in the following form:

Set up webhooks to send a request with the status of the processing record to your server once analysing account information is finished.
To set up webhooks see Webhooks under Endpoints section. To apply the webhook, pass
"use_webhook": true when requesting which operations to use.
Webhook request body
To the specified URL POST, the request will be sent with body as follows:
We support OAuth 2.0 and Basic Auth flows. If Oauth 2.0 is set, a token POST request will be sent with body as follows:
The expected response:
If a webhook request responds with 401, a new token will be requested once.
For HTTP codes 413, 429, 500, 502, 503, 504 the webhook request will be retried up to 10 times with exponential backoff of
0.5 * (2^n-1), where n is a retry count.
