Registering Users

In order to try out the Apiture Open Banking APIs from the developer portal, you will need to register a user in each target environment, such as the DevBank environment or dedicated partner development or test environments. Registering a user allows you to authenticate on that environment when you select a target environment in the developer portal, and the portal saves your access token to use for secure API calls using your identity.

Visit that environment’s web portal client application (such as devbank.apiture.com) to register a new user. We recommend you register on the environment with the same email address that you used when registering on the Dev Portal (developer.apiture.com). While this is not necessary, it will be easier for you to keep track of credentials for different environments. Alternatively, some organizations may choose to create one or more shared test users and share those credentials internally. Registration also requires a valid mobile phone number and valid email address for multi-factor authentication.

The examples below show the Apiture web application registration experience for a sample developer portal user with the email address terri.jones@example.com.

Start at devbank.apiture.com’s Welcome page.

Welcome page

Since you do not yet have a login account, click the Open An Account link to visit the Open an account with Canapi page.

Fill in the following data on the registration page. This sample data will facilitate opening a new account using test data that does not trigger additional identity validation. Warning: Do not enter your own or anyone else’s social security number.

  • First Name: John
  • Last Name: Smith
  • Tax Identification Number: 112-22-3333
  • Mobile Number: Your personal mobile number instead of (999) 999-9999. The environment may use the phone number for multi-factor authentication on subsequent login actions. (On the next login, you can request the environment remember the device so you do not have to complete the mobile multi-factor authentication each time you log in.)
  • Email Address: Your personal email address instead of terri.jones@example.com. The target environment sends you a confirmation code at this email address to verify that the email address is valid. Tip: Use the same email address you used when registering on the developer portal.
  • Password: Enter a unique password that adheres to the password policies listed on the form.

When the form is complete, click the CONTINUE button. Check your email account for a confirmation email.

Upon registering and logging in for the first time, the environment’s web application starts a digital account opening (DAO) process to open a new banking account for the user.

Continue to use the sample data for the “John Smith” user to avoid triggering additional identity validation. Warning: Except for your own phone number, do not enter an actual person’s personal information.
