Available accounts

  Less than to read

Connector APIBanking Service -> Provider

This endpoint allows Banking Service to retrieve a list of accounts available for linking using the multi-account linking flow.

The /availableaccounts endpoint enables you to use the multi-account link flow to link additional accounts to an existing BankConnection. This means customers do not need to repeat the single account flow multiple times.

All accounts under the same authorisation should be returned in the GET /availableaccounts request. This includes accounts already connected.

If there has been any new accounts added since you originaly sent the PATCH authorisations request in the onboarding flow, these should also be returned in this response request.



The following query parameters are sent within the GET availableaccounts request:

Query Parameter Description
externalId This externalId is the identifier you give when first providing Banking Service with the users accounts through the patch authorisations call on the onboarding flow.


Using the externalId provided in the query parameters you should then return an array of available accounts under the same authorisation.

        "accountName": "string",
