Create Transaction

Transactions are the main resource in OneSpan Identity Verification (see also Transaction model). The Create Transaction API creates and starts the execution of a new transaction.

The Create Transaction request allows to:

  • Create transactions with documents, signatures, signers, and an instance of the predefined workflow.
  • Create transactions with predefined document templates.
  • Create transactions by providing additional metadata that will be retained as electronic evidence.
  • Create transactions with an instance of a predefined workflow to request identity validation checks to be executed through OneSpan Identity Verification.
  • Create transactions that require implicit or explicit user consent. For an example request, see Example request with explicit consent. For consent configuration, see Transaction model.

The number of agreements may not exceed a total size of 50 MB, and the size of a single agreement must not exceed 10 MB.
