Accessibility

Accessibility is the practice of making your websites usable by as many people as possible.
It includes:

  • Semantic HTML, which improves accessibility.
  • Caring about accessibility demonstrates good ethics and morals, which improves your public image.
  • Other good practices that improve accessibility also make your site more usable by other groups, such as mobile phone users or those on low network speed.

Change log

Consent and Payment initiation response _links/scaOAuth now points to OAuth metadata endpoint, instead of straight to authorize endpoint:

{ 
  "_links": 
    { 
      "scaOAuth": "https://sml-prod-psd2.azure-api.net/.wellknown/oauth-authorization-server",
      "self": "/psd2/v1/consents/gqHPIqjwpp",
      "status": "/psd2/v1/consents/gqHPIqjwpp/status" 
    },
  "consentId": "gqHPIqjwpp",
  "consentStatus": "received",
  "scaMethods": [] 
}

Metadata endpoint https://sml-prod-psd2.azure-api.net/.wellknown/oauth-authorization-server will return a JSON with the authorization and token endpoints:

{ 
  "issuer" : "https://sml-prod-psd2.azure-api.net", 
  "authorization_endpoint" : "https://sml-prod-psd2.azure-api.net/samlink-api-sandbox/oauth/authorize", 
  "token_endpoint" : "https://sml-prod-psd2.azure-api.net/samlink-api-sandbox/oauth/token"
}

Payment initiation response now contains the _links element as above, and transactionFeeIndicator element with value "false".

Consent usage counts are now not increased if the request contains PSU-IP-Address header, which indicates that the consent user is active in the TPP application while the request was made.

Added support for future dated payments with requestedExecutionDate in the future.

New sandbox endpoint /management/execute-future-dated-payments to help with testing future payments.
