6 January 2022

NEW FEATURES:
We fully support all kinds of Received Sepa Direct Debit: Core and B2B. Learn more
You can now close an account by API using the closeAccount mutation. Learn more​
IMPROVEMENTS:
It’s now possible to release a card authorization using the Event Simulator.
You can now filter cards by statuses for a given Account Membership using the accountMembership.cards query.
Default pagination has been increased to 50 items per page in the payments query in order to align with other queries.
For each card transaction on the Account Statement, the description field now shows the card holder name and the last four digits of the card.
Webhooks offer 2 new onboarding events: Onboarding.Created and Onboarding.Updated
Exponential backoff when retrying failed webhook events, with up to a maximum of 7 retries.
BUG FIXES:
The list of accepted characters in the reference field of the initiateCreditTransfer mutation has been updated to match current SEPA guidelines.
The image returned in the cardUrl (card query) is now updated when the Account Member name is updated
When issuing cards, Cardholder names and delivery addresses can include special characters and accents like "Amélie" or "Hauptstraße".
BREAKING CHANGES:
It's been 3 months now (that's 3 releases ago), that partners integrating by API must make sure their UX entices users to prove their identity. To give you time to develop this user flow, we've been texting all users about identity verification as soon as they are created. Starting today, we no longer send new users this sms. Learn more​

16 December 2021

NEW FEATURES:
Users can now consent using biometry. To try it out for yourself, just clear your browser data. During your next consent, we'll ask you to register your FaceId, TouchId, or Fingerprint. Passcode will only be requested if a user has changed their mobile device. Learn more
Some of you wish to send notifications via your own app, to offer a great UX just like the best neobanks. This is now possible. Just define your preferred consent notification channel, SMS or App, by using the new updateUserConsentSettings mutation. Learn more
Thanks to the new updateOnboarding and finalizeOnboarding mutations you are not obligated to use our #nocode interfaces. You can onboard customers directly from your product, if you prefer. Learn more​
IMPROVEMENTS:
We added new account filters : canManageAccountMembership, canManageBeneficiaries, canInitiatePayments and new accountMemberships filters: status, canInitiatePayments, canManageAccountMembership, canManageBeneficiaries
The list of transactions associated to a received direct debit mandate can now be retrieved using the API.
The dashboard lets you sort webhook event logs using 2 new filters: eventId and resourceId. View each webhook's KPIs for the last 7 days: hits, counter, and error rate. We also added 2 new events: Onboarding.created and Onboarding.updated
Transactions where paymentProduct is SEPACreditTransfer and status is Upcoming can now be canceled using the cancelTransaction mutation.
BUG FIXES:
When requesting physical cards, the Company Name and the Name/Last Name are now truncated to 38 characters. This is a mail delivery requirement.
The card language (used for 3DS, ATM screens and delivery envelopes) is dynamically assigned. Available languages: DE, FR, IT, NL, EN, ES. When a language is not available, the default language is EN.
BREAKING CHANGES:
Pagination on the accountHolders, accountMemberships, and accounts queries has been fixed. It might break if you implement the filter on the front-end. These queries now only return the requested number of items, rather than all items at once.

NEW FEATURES:

Add up to 200 cards, and print their physical version using just one consent with the addCards mutation. Since card creation is executed asynchronously, we created a new card status: Processing . We deprecated the status filter on the cards query and created statuses so you can filter when there are multiple ones. Learn more
The new ibanValidation query helps you verify the format of an external IBAN, get all available bank info (name, BIC code, etc.) and account data available for this IBAN, as well as the reachability of this IBAN across all SEPA schemes. Learn more
Sepa Direct Debit Core Mandates are now visible in the API under the account.receivedDirectDebitMandates query and can be suspended with the suspendReceivedDirectDebitMandate mutation or resumed with the resumeReceivedDirectDebitMandate mutation. Learn more
During SCA, avoid asking your customer to enter their phone number, first name, last name, and birth date on the Swan user form. Query parameters during the oauth 2 process let you do this. Learn more​
IMPROVEMENTS:
Some webhook events used to be fired a few milliseconds too early, and now are fired right on time.
Just in case a webhook event is incorrectly integrated on your side, we've added a retry button to the dashboard.
Simulate physical card delivery from the dashboard.
Our compliance team did a lot of work to allow you to onboard individuals and now companies across all of Europe. Learn more​
