News about Vero API

Upcoming changes in Suomi.fi authorization process for Vero API interfaces

The interfaces have checked the Suomi.fi authorization for each interface call. In the future, the interface user must retrieve the authorization with the GetToken interface before making calls to those interfaces that require Suomi.fi authorization.

Authorization will be handled in the future with Suomi.fi authorization tokens, which can be retrieve with the GetToken interface call. The authorization token is a technically signed data structure that contains the Suomi.fi authorizations granted to the interface user. The authorization token gives the right to act on behalf of another organization for 60 minutes from the time of token creation.

The use of Suomi.fi authorization tokens will become mandatory on May 1, 2024. The mandatory use of the authorization token does not apply to interfaces where Suomi.fi authorization is not currently required.

Read more about the upcoming change on the Vero API Acting on behalf of other organizations -page and also from the interface documentation on the API portal.
