Updated API methods:


API - BankID

A new parameter called AuthenticatePerson (nullable bool) is added to the Sign and Auth request in BFS API, which makes it possible to use bankID for signing and authorization via the API. This means that we can authenticate a person that does not exist in BFS.

Method: BankIdAuthenticationBankIdSign

System Settings 

We have added some new settings which give back office administrators more control.

Login Settings

Back office can now easily administer how to log into the different systems, back office (admin), partner and customer front.

We have added new login settings at each tab in the back office GUI where we can choose login alternative. (System Data > System Settings > Admin or Partner or Front)

Note! The add-on BankID have to be enabled to be able to get the alternative BankID Mobile and BankID 

Instrument Setting 

We have added a new setting that enables you to add fund company name as a prefix to the name of the fund created by a feed. This setting is usable to separate funds with the same name in Bricknode Broker.

Example: FundCompany - FundName

We would like to take the opportunity to thank one of our customers, Henrik, for this suggestion to make Bricknode Broker even better!

Allocation Order list

A new menu alternative under Order Management called Allocation Orders where you can filter on allocation profiles and only view the orders connected to the specific allocation profile.
