IFX Forum is committed to deliver smoothly functioning services toÂ the financial marketplace using standardized APIs. While many organizations in the financial services industryÂ are talking about Open Banking APIs, IFX is actually doing something to advance this important initiative. Our new API DemonstrationÂ gives you a taste of our approach and progress.
The IFXÂ API Demonstration providesÂ an initial hands-onÂ sample of severalÂ typical business scenarios in financial account management including:
- Validate account
- Get account balance
- Show account information
- Several PSD2 use cases
In the demo, these requestsÂ are enabled byÂ fully functional IFX-defined APIs in aÂ Representational State Transfer (REST) architecture. Using our sample dataset, you can see both aÂ user-facing displayÂ and the JSON resourcesÂ resulting fromÂ these API calls.
For example, here’s the programmer’s view of the user-facing display shown at the top of this post:
For those interested in a more technical deep dive, our new IFX RESTful LabÂ demonstrates a RESTful implementation of the IFX Business Message Specification version 2.4. This demonstrates RESTful calls which operate on REST resources based on the IFX Objects.
