VBDS API

Hello!

I'm using the VBDS API and I have the next questions:

- I'm Calling the trxndata Api, there is parameters for startDate and endDate, What date use for filter? PostingDate? I receive data that the postingDate is outside the filter.

- I call starterdata Api then trxndata Api, I receive transactions that have an account number but I don't receive any card account with that number or I receive card account but there is not a card holder with same cardholderid as the card account, this is because is testing data?

- The period date of transaction Api is a code number. How can I get the start and end date for that period?

 

Best!

Re: VBDS API

Hello @beckerp,

 

Please see my comments in line below.

 

- I'm Calling the trxndata Api, there is parameters for startDate and endDate, What date use for filter? PostingDate? I receive data that the postingDate is outside the filter.

 

[Vaibhav] : For filtering , we use ‘posting date’. We have setup NEW “Test Data” for April 2019 month, these transaction data should reflect the posting date relevant to April dates in Sandbox & CERT.

 

- I call starterdata Api then trxndata Api, I receive transactions that have an account number but I don't receive any card account with that number or I receive card account but there is not a card holder with same cardholderid as the card account, this is because is testing data?

 

[Vaibhav] : Transaction Data and Starter Data : what we have currently in Sandbox are test data (random and dummy account numbers) not interlinked. We will populate new set of Starter Data by next week -> Mapping it to transaction data related to April 2019.

 

- The period date of transaction Api is a code number. How can I get the start and end date for that period?

 

[Vaibhav] : We are enhancing the Starter Data to accommodate “BILLING PERIOD”. In the current implementation, the starter data gives out  { Card Holder , Card Account, Company and  Department/Hiernode  } details. In addition to this, we will be supporting Billing Period details which includes Start and End Date of the Billing Period.

Note : Code Number from Trxn Data can be your reference to fetch the Billing Period details from Starter Data.

 

Planned Release Date in VDP for Enhancements : May mid in Sandbox & Cert  env ,  June mid PROD LIVE.

 

Thank you, 

Vaibhav
