Introducing the latest release of Salt Edge API, version 5

Salt Edge announced the release of a new version of its unified Open Banking Account Information API; v5 comes with a Consent Management system and with changes that ease the way how financial institutions interact with the platform.


In this new API version, Salt Edge has added a Consent Management System. It is a new compartment in which financial institutions that use the Salt Edge system can create, revoke, and monitor the expiry of the consents granted by their end-users. They also have a detailed view of each consent: the expiry date, the scope of consent (e.g., access account holder information, account details, transaction history), the period of validity and reason of consent revocation, and much more. The Consent Management system is fully compliant with PSD2 and RTS requirements.

“Consent is the leitmotiv of PSD2, therefore we went above and beyond to make it super easy for financial institutions to monitor consents of their customers,” said Dmitrii Barbasura, CEO at Salt Edge.

During the lifecycle of API v5, a set of new scopes of consents will be added and handled via Consent Management System. These will be consents for obtaining payment details, credit card statements, information about product offers, and others.

Also, all the data enrichment services that Salt Edge has developed over the past years such as merchant identification, transaction categorization are now available via one unified end-point. Salt Edge will be adding new services like financial health check API, expense report, payee verification to the data enrichment portfolio so that clients can have a complete picture of their end-customers’ financial situation.

“Over time, we managed to develop a very good understanding and ability to anticipate our clients’ needs and transpose their high expectations into a new version of Salt Edge API. Also, by meticulously studying the PSD2, RTS, GDPR, and local legislations such as PSR2017 and consulting with different European regulatory bodies, we have built Open Banking Gateway state of the art services,” added Dmitrii Barbasura.

With Open Banking gaining traction in Europe and beyond, Salt Edge strives, more than ever, to give institutions access to better technology and data so these can bring their business ideas to life.

More detailed information about v5 of Salt Edge API can be found in the Salt Edge documentation.
