Token validation failed erro 9208 MLE on Visa Transaction Controls Customer Rules Registration API

Hello, 

I'm having an issue when trying to call the Registration from Customer Rules on VTCs.

If I call it with out enforcing the MLE, and with out encrypting the payload, it work fine.

But if I enforce it, and do the encryption as it is done on the example code, it throw me this response: 

 

 

 

{"responseStatus":{"status":401,"code":"9208","severity":"ERROR","message":"Token validation failed","info":""}}

 

 

 

I don't get what may be wrong, if it is something with the JWE encryption, or with x-pay-token (that is working with no MLE).

Any idea what can it be?

Is there any documentation that have the error code detailed info? 

 

Thanks in advance!

Javier Sivack

I forgot to mention that I'm sending as request body is like

{"encData":"the_encrypted_payload"}

payload is {"primaryAccountNumber":"4986490538230001"} from test data.

Hi @JavierSivack,

 

Please reference the MLE resources below:

https://developer.visa.com/pages/encryption_guide 

https://community.developer.visa.com/t5/Message-Level-Encryption/How-to-run-MLE-Sample-Code-Project/...

 

Some key points to check:

1. Add the keyId as an additional HTTP header

2. For Encryption, use the server encryption certificate

3. For Decryption, use the certificate private key 

 

You can also download MLE sample code for various languages. The download package is available from "General Assets" at the bottom of your project dashboard page.

 

Hope this helps, please let me know if you have other questions.


Best,
Stacey

Hi Stacy,

It really does not help, I'm doing almost the same like all of the examples and docs, the only difference is that I'm using x-pay-token.

So I don't know how to follow with this...

Hi @JavierSivack,

 

Can you please share some more information about the error?

1. Request header

2. Request body

3. Response header with x-correlation ID

4. Pre-request script from Postman for the encryption

Thanks!

Hi @JavierSivack,

 

Can you please confirm that you have keyId in the Postman header and its value is set to the Key-ID value from your Project's Encryption/Decryption section?

Hi Stacy.

 

Yes I confirm it is there. You can see on my first message, I just had deleted the key to not post it here.

Hi @JavierSivack,

 

Thanks for confirming that keyId is not the issue. The other thing I can think of is the timestamp.  Please check that the iat timestamp that goes in the JWE Header of the encrypted request is less than 2 minutes from the current time. The request will not be processed if the iat timestamp has expired. Please share the X-Correlation-ID from the latest failed request for us to troubleshoot further.
