AIS Consents

The time for which an AIS connection consent can live for, and for how far in the past it can access transactions from can be specified as part of the mh:consent claims value.

To set these values in the claims, they need to be set in the mh:consent value in the claims, with these properties:

  • expirationDateTime - the date time at which the banking connection will expire with the banking provider (maximum 90 days in the future)
  • transactionFromDateTime - the date time at which transactions will be pulled from. The earliest time we allow for this value is the closest to the current time of these values:
    • 72 months in the past
    • The value specified for monthsInitialConsent for the given provider.

Setting expirationDateTime and reconsent

If expirationDateTime is set, this means that the connection will not be able to use the shortened reconsent journey and will have to go through full re-authentication with the provider. The tppConsent will be false for connections using expirationDateTime. Please see the guide on 90 day reconsent changes for more information.

Setting transactionFromDateTime limitations

When setting transactionFromDateTime, please be aware that some providers may have a limit on how far back transactions can be fetched. When limits are known, these will appear in the well known connections endpoint (https://identity.moneyhub.co.uk/oidc/.well-known/api-connections) in either monthsInitialConsent or daysInitialConsent

When making a connection without specifying a user ID (One time access scenario) the default time for the expiration date time will be 24 hours in the future.

NodeJS Library

🚧

Prerequisites

You will need v4.17.0 of the Moneyhub API Client to make use of this feature

If you use our NodeJS client library, you can make connections with these claims by specifying expirationDateTime and/or transactionFromDateTime in the authorisation URL generating methods.

const url = await moneyhub.getAuthorizeUrl({
  scope: "openid id:api",
  state: " your state value",
  nonce: "your nonce value",
  expirationDateTime: "2022-09-01T00:00:00.000Z",
  transactionFromDateTime: "2020-09-01T00:00:00.000Z",
})
