Create Counterparty (Explicit)

Create Counterparty (Explicit) for an Account.

In OBP, there are two types of Counterparty.

  • Explicit Counterparties (those here) which we create explicitly and are used in COUNTERPARTY Transaction Requests

  • Implicit Counterparties (AKA Other Accounts) which are generated automatically from the other sides of Transactions.

Explicit Counterparties are created for the account / view
They are how the user of the view (e.g. account owner) refers to the other side of the transaction

name : the human readable name (e.g. Piano teacher, Miss Nipa)

description : the human readable name (e.g. Piano teacher, Miss Nipa)

bank_routing_scheme : eg: bankId or bankCode or any other strings

bank_routing_address : eg: gh.29.uk, must be valid sandbox bankIds

account_routing_scheme : eg: AccountId or AccountNumber or any other strings

account_routing_address : eg: 1d65db7c-a7b2-4839-af41-95, must be valid accountIds

other_account_secondary_routing_scheme : eg: IBan or any other strings

other_account_secondary_routing_address : if it is an IBAN, it should be unique for each counterparty.

other_branch_routing_scheme : eg: branchId or any other strings or you can leave it empty, not useful in sandbox mode.

other_branch_routing_address : eg: branch-id-123 or you can leave it empty, not useful in sandbox mode.

is_beneficiary : must be set to true in order to send payments to this counterparty

bespoke: It supports a list of key-value, you can add it to the counterparty.

bespoke.key : any info-key you want to add to this counterparty

bespoke.value : any info-value you want to add to this counterparty

The view specified by VIEW_ID must have the canAddCounterparty permission
