KBC Ireland is inviting all Third parties, developers and Open Banking enthusiasts to test their applications using our APIs in the Sandbox. The process to access the Sandbox is explained below.
KBC Ireland does not offer APIs in production at this point in time. Watch this space for more details
Detailed Documentation – Swagger Definition
You can access detailed documentation of our APIs here. These can be accessed after you have registered on the developer portal. Your application will need certificates to use the APIs in Sandbox. The process to obtain certificates is explained below.
Security is important to us. To access our APIs in Sandbox your application will need to use two certificates - network certificate and signing certificate. After you have registered your application and received the credentials for the application you will need to send in a certificate signing request (CSR). There will be an API made available for you to request certificates. Once you send us the CSR we will create the certificates and share it with you. These certificates should be used by your application to use the relevant APIs.
Details of the API are available on our portal.
When you register a new application you will be asked to enter a password for a test user (note – user name is set to client ID of the application). This will be the user you can use in the consent authorisation journey. The user will be linked to a set of dummy accounts, which have transactional data on it.
You can access the list of accounts once you successfully complete an AIS or a PIS consent authorisation journey from your application.
Our APIs follow the oAuth framework and the end to end journey will involve a web redirect from your application into our authorisation endpoint.
KBC Ireland will support the redirect method of authorisation. The sandbox will support the web redirect method. Your application will receive an authorisation code, which should be used to retrieve access tokens.
Authorisation Server Details (Sandbox)
Information needed to interact with our authorisation server on the Sandbox is available here.
Note – we will monitor the usage of our APIs by your applications on the Sandbox.
