Force two-factor authentication: In the user area, two-factor authentication can be forced for all users of a client in the future.

New API setting - creating offline accounts: A new API setting has been added to make the creation of offline accounts controllable via the API. If the setting is active, the creation of offline accounts will be allowed. If the setting is disabled, the creation of offline accounts via the API will be denied. Offline accounts are neither linked to an EBICS access nor connected to a service data center, so that no online action is possible.

Address and creditor ID at client level: The address and creditor ID at the client level will be removed without replacement. This is done in connection with the more precise specification of the account holder's address at bank account level (see below). In the future, address and creditor ID must be maintained individually for each bank account. Related to this, some permissions for client management have been updated.
The address is no obligatory specification and is only required for the manual entry of payments via the konfipay portal. The address is not required for the payment processing and transaction retrieval processes via the API.
Adjustment of permissions for client management: Due to the omission of the address and creditor ID at client level, the authorizations are
Edit clienthave become obsolete and have been removed. Furthermore the function
Lock clientis now only available for the administrator of a client.
Division of the address field for bank accounts: In the course of adaptation to the ISO 20022 standard, the address field for bank accounts is split into the individual components of the address: Street, house number, P.O. Box, postal code, city, country.
More information: Bank accounts
The previously stored addresses for bank accounts are still available in konfipay's database, but will neither be used nor displayed. The final deletion of the address data takes place as of 01.06.2022.
