Today we launched our new ASB API Platform and we are keen to get some feedback from the Geekzone community. We'll be facilitating Q&As through this ASB GZ account with our various dev teams at ASB, so if you have questions for them on the API platform please let us know!  You can read more about today's announcement on our blog here.

I often pay a lot of people thru the asb app and now recently i find that you have removed screenshot feature, which sucks big time.


now i cant seem to find any other way to send them a proof, other than log into asb web and send them a print screen


if you were so smart and care about security, you should disable print screen from web page too.



you have double standards - please look into fixing this.

Here's some questions for starters:

 

     

  1. Will you be charging to use the API?
  2. Do you have a timeline for the features you will release and will you make this public?
  3. What information do you plan to make "public"?  I'm particularly interested in, well concerned by, personally identifiable information here.
  4. Will you facilitate banking transactions over your API?
  5. Will you place restrictions on the APIs usage by a single client?

Hi there, thanks for your question. The issue is with Android showing unmasked screens in the list of running apps. However, we are looking at some options for Android users in the future and will keep you posted.  Thanks.

This can stay as it has been answered but no more off topic posts here, this is purely for discussing the new API.

I have another question:

 

     

  1. Your blog post mentions "Developers will be able to register online for initial vetting before they join the ASB developer community." (emphasis mine), what does "initial vetting" entail?

Thanks for your questions.

 

 

 

     

  1. There will be no charge to use the initial public APIs which are rates, forex and bank/ATM location data.
  2. The first public APIs will be available in mid-October, and further additions are planned – we’ll let you know more details as we get closer to the release date via announcements on the ASB API Platform.
  3. When we say public, we are referring to already publicly available information (for example home lending rates, foreign exchange rates etc). Any access to private customer data in the future via the API will need to be authorised by an authenticated customer first.
  4. Some banking transaction capability is on our API roadmap. We’ll keep you posted on future release dates.
  5. We will have generous API throttling limits and quotas in place - these shouldn’t be an issue for most users.

As part of our focus on security, we will initially review developer registrations to check they are authentic and have accepted the terms of use. Once you are on-board, each Organisation Administrator developer will have full authority to manage applications and developers on behalf of their company. 

 

You can invite your own developers to use the portal, get API keys, test APIs, manage applications and more.

I'm really excited. I've wanted to do some scraping of my bank balances for my own records but it's never seemed like a good idea. This would be perfect for me!

Great stuff, ASB!
