API: Webhooks are here!

2021-05-03 19_22_59-Webhook payload – Citadel API v1

When we connect your user to their payroll provider there's a lot of data we want to get to you and some of the heavier processes to make that happen take time. We don't want to slow down your users experience, so we get you as much data as we can right away and keep you updated as we discover the rest. In the past this was done with a simple status field in our endpoints which can be frustrating to constantly poll. Webhooks to the rescue!

Now your system can subscribe to our webhooks and be notified when the status of the Task discovering your users data changes.

API: The Citadel Sandbox has been given an upgrade...

We've drastically expanded on the data that is available in our sandbox. Not only did we improve and increase what our trusty goodlogin user returns when logging in, but we've added in realistic paystubs and W2's! We've also updated other logins as well.

Dashboard: ...and Dashboard has been updated for sandbox too!

2021-05-03 19_49_38-Orders

Speaking of sandbox, Dashboard has gotten a few upgrades to help you develop and test in our sandbox environment. First, there's a new "Sandbox mode" available. With a flip of the switch in your menu on the left you can turn "Sandbox mode" on an off. When on, all the data you see in Tasks, Logs and Orders will be data created with your sandbox Access key. When off you'll be looking at data in your development and production environments where live credentials were used.

The second update Dashboard has received is that you can now create Orders in your sandbox environment directly from Dashboard. If you have "Sandbox mode" on any orders you create will be created in sandbox and will work with any of our sandbox credentials. This is perfect for when you're testing out your customizations and previewing just how a users interaction with Citadel would look.

API: Data removal is available in the API

2021-05-03 19_51_44-Data removal – Citadel API v1

We've created a new endpoint that will allow you to request all data related to an access_token be removed from Citadel's systems. Whether it's to align your use of Citadel with internal policies or to give your users piece of mind that their data is not being stored, one quick API call let's us know to get rid of what we have.
