What is communityCode?

Hi All,

 

So I am investigating the Visa Offers Platform (VOP), there is a required field on many endpoints called "communityCode". This field and its use is not really explained anywhere I can find in any documentation.

 

Examples in API Docs.

User API - enrol endpoint

REQUIREDcommunityCode - Partner community code, must be exact match with the community code provided by Visa

 

Merchant API - Onboard endpoint

REQUIRED: communityCode - Partner community code, must be exact match with the community code provided by Visa

 

So, it's clearly very important, I could take several guesses about what it is, how it is used and generated, but it is going to be easier to ask the comminty for help.

1. What is communitycode used for?

2. How is it generated?

3. Is it specific to each client, i.e. consumer of the VOP services?

 

Please help, thanks,

Paul

Hi Paul,

 

Please see below response. Let me know if you have any further questions.

 

1. What is communitycode used for? CommunityCode is used to identify the client instance for which the API is being called. It is unique to each client/program and provided by Visa at time of implementation.
2. How is it generated? Assigned by Visa Offers Platform Implementation Team
3. Is it specific to each client, i.e. consumer of the VOP services? Yes

 

Thanks,
