Enhancements

The following are the enhancements made.

Multiple enhancements in the Card module

Support for Card Custom Fields

By default, we support several standard and extended fields for cards. However, your brand requires storing additional information like card delivery address, chip information, state, or PIN code. Most of such additional fields are of type string and unsupported by default extended fields. 

With this release, you can add new field types and custom data to make them align with your requirement.

Use Case

Card information which needs to be captured but does not fit into the available card extended fields can now be captured with card custom fields. Some examples can be card delivery address, city, state, pin code etc.

While adding a new custom field for card, field scope should be selected as “customer_card”


The following APIs now support adding or fetching card custom field details.

  1. GET v2/customers 
  2. POST v2/customers
  3. POST v2/card
  4. PUT v2/card
  5. GET v2/card
  6. PUT v2/card/bulk

Card update event in Event Notification

Card Update Event added to the list of available events in Event notifications. You can now receive events whenever a card is updated via Card Update APIs - PUT v2/card and PUT v2/card/bulk. 

Use Case

 A notification needs to be sent to the customer once the physical card is dispatched for delivery. Card status label and card custom fields like address are updated via card update API and a notification is triggered.


Support to fetch Card details on Sharingan

Sharingan now supports fetching card details of a customer. You can access all card details like card number, series code, card status, label, extended fields etc. 

Use Case

Show card details of a customer in a microsite.


Authentication for Behavioral Events 

Earlier, the Webhook API requests did not require even a basic authentication. Anyone could just copy the schema and send requests to Capillary.

You can now secure your Webhook API requests with authentication. The added layer of authentication is extremely helpful in preventing fraud or abuse of data. The ideal case where authentication is effective is when your brand uses behavioral events to reward customers with points or coupons.

To avail added security, you need to get the authentication enabled for the brand by raising a ticket with the platform team. You are good to go and you can use till credentials for authenticating requests from Webhook API. You can either use Basic Auth or OAuth.

Use Case

Brands using Behavioral events for rewarding customers by issuing points/coupons which have monetary value can use authentication to prevent abuse/fraud.
