This page describes the technical steps to get started with the integration. It is an additional resource that completes our openAPI description of the REST API.

finAPI follows the OAuth 2.0 Standard for authorizing applications and users within them. OAuth uses the terminology of clients and users. A client represents an application that calls finAPI services. A service call might be in the context of a user of the client (e.g, getting a user's bank connections), or outside any user context (e.g, editing your client's configuration, or creating a new user for your client). In any case, every service call must be authorized by an access_token.

The following diagram visualizes the steps needed to be performed and the specific flow of requests and returns inside each step.

The subpages under this page describe in greater detail each step.
