The API-specification is the technical specification to follow when implementing the API’s that are part of the DSOP Control Common Standard. In addition to the technical specification, this documentation describes the data model for each API, and guidelines regarding what to deliver and how for each DSOP Solution based on the Common Standard.

Each API consist of several fields and subfields. Some fields are marked as mandatory due to technical reasons. Regardless of whether the fields are marked as mandatory or not, all fields are to be provided as long as the bank/financial institution holds the data, unless otherwise stated for the specific DSOP Solution. An overview of the relevant API’s per DSOP Solution is presented in the table below. This is according to the legal basis for each DSOP Solution.

Overview of the DSOP Control Common Standard - relevant API’s and versions per DSOP solution

See description of each API in the next chapter, as some DSOP solutions only should have access to parts of the fields in the API.

Description of all fields in the API’s

The API’s have both structured and free text fields. Structured fields have a specific purpose and may have legal values (enums) or specified format. If there is a matching structured field in the API definition, structured information shall be placed there and not in the free text fields. The free text fields are intended for information not fitting into any structured field, for instance free text the financial institution has received from the party issuing the transaction
