Prerequisites before use:

partners This API endpoint is available for trusted Barion partners only.

Prerequisites and constraints

IMPORTANT! This API call requires that the caller has previously sent a request to the Identification-Information-v2 endpoint with valid authentication data for the organization, so they obtain the CompanyRegisterId parameter which is required for this endpoint. The Identification-Information-v2 call result also contains information about the representative personnel of the company and their Signatory status. The list of representative personnel included in the call to this API endpoint must match the data received in the previous call, and the combination of the provided personnel must comply with the company's signatory regulations. Otherwise an exception message is thrown.
