Introduction of the portal
The developer portal for Deutsche Bank API Program is the one-stop-shop for the most modern available Deutsche Bank APIs. It guides you towards access to banking data and banking services. Our APIs can easily and conveniently be integrated into your product or value chain like your ERP. Whether you aim to digitize your internal processes or want to improve your digital products, our data and services facilitate your business in various ways. From startup to established corporate enterprises from any industry there is potential in using our API’s.
The developer portal includes an API Explorer that allows you to play around with our APIs and get a first feeling before any registration. Once you want more, you can register within seconds to integrate the API with test data into your own application. We have created an extensive simulation environment with our own test personas that almost feel like real Deutsche Bank customers. You can use them to run your tests or first pilots. The combination of API Explorer and simulator allows you to integrate the APIs and test your application as if you had access to live environment. The technical go-live with the app then is as simple as flipping a switch. In addition, you can upload your individual test data. All this can be found in your own cockpit in your personalized dashboard. When you want to access real data, there is a straight-forward online form that initiates the onboarding. The onboarding is conducted in a combination of automated processes and manual assessment. We guarantee the onboarding takes no longer than two weeks to receive your production key. Because API Explorer and simulator behave like the live environment, you don’t have to change your codebase again when moving to production.
The developer portal is based on Angular and React and uses industry standards such as Swagger 2.0, OpenID Connect and OAuth2. Our APIs adhere to the principles of REST. Both the developer portal and the APIs were built while relying on the OWASP security principles. The rich documentation comes with code snippets and a self-explanatory introduction to OAuth2 flows. Our FAQ is a compendium of all the questions we were ever asked. In case you can’t find the answer to your question there or you are looking for a person to talk to, reach out to us. We’re keen to get back to you. Within few hours – always kind, always ready to help.
