API Movers and Shakers: Your Weekly API Performance Report

Once again, U.S. Government APIs are not doing so well. FEMA in the US Government Collection was in the Red Zone with a CASC score of 5.72. This was primarily due to an outage on the 7th of March, which saw the requests to most endpoints timeout. There was also a scattering of failures throughout […]

Weekly API Performance Report: Movers and Shakers

Here are our highlights for the week in APIs. We tell you who’s up, who’s down, and who dropped out completely. Are the APIs you depend on included? If not, let us know and we’ll add them to our collection. And if you still haven’t signed up for a demo, what are you waiting for? […]

The Open Banking Implementation Entity (OBIE) Directory is a central registry of UK-regulated banks that are participants in the Open Banking ecosystem. The Directory provides information on the APIs that these banks offer to third-party providers, allowing them to access customer account data and initiate payments. The Directory is maintained by the OBIE and is used by financial institutions, third-party providers, and customers to navigate the Open Banking ecosystem.

The OBIE Directory provides a comprehensive list of participating banks, along with details of their APIs and security protocols. The Directory is updated regularly to reflect changes in the Open Banking landscape, ensuring that all information is up-to-date and accurate. The Directory also includes a test environment, known as the Developer Portal, that allows developers to experiment with APIs before integrating them into their own products.

The OBIE Directory APIs allow third-party providers to programmatically access the Directory’s data, including bank and API details, security requirements, and technical specifications. This allows third-party providers to easily integrate the Directory’s data into their own products and services, without the need for manual data entry or scraping. The APIs are based on RESTful principles and use OAuth 2.0 for authentication and authorization.

The OBIE Directory APIs include a range of endpoints for accessing bank and API information. The /banks endpoint provides a list of all participating banks and their basic information, such as name, logo, and website. The /banks/{bank_id} endpoint provides more detailed information on a specific bank, including its API endpoints, security requirements, and data types. The /branches endpoint provides a list of all bank branches, along with their contact information.

The OBIE Directory APIs also provide endpoints for accessing technical specifications and security protocols. The /certificates endpoint provides information on the security certificates required for accessing each bank’s APIs, while the /jwks endpoint provides the public keys required for validating the bank’s JSON Web Tokens (JWTs). The /metrics endpoint provides usage statistics for the Directory, allowing third-party providers to monitor the performance of their integrations.

The OBIE Directory also includes a sandbox environment, known as the Developer Portal, that allows developers to test their integrations before deploying them to production. The Developer Portal provides a comprehensive set of tools for testing and debugging integrations, including a mock API server that simulates the behavior of participating banks. The Developer Portal also includes a testing suite that allows developers to verify that their integrations meet the technical and security requirements of each bank.

The Developer Portal includes detailed documentation and sample code for integrating with the OBIE Directory APIs. The documentation includes technical specifications for each endpoint, along with examples of how to use the APIs in a variety of programming languages. The sample code provides a starting point for developers looking to build their own integrations, reducing development time and ensuring that integrations meet best practices.
