Account nick names to nEXT API ?

Added by Juha-Pekka almost 8 years ago

Hi,

I was just looking this account switching feature and if user has many available accounts it is quite a hard to pick the right account (or more closely to remember that what of the accounts 886768, 885654, 884567, 887689, 8543424 was my and what was my wife's account that I am managing and so on )

Would it possible to extend 'get accounts' query to give also he nick name that user can do and use in the
web service ? It would make that account/porfolio changing so much easier/clearer.

(see also attached screenshot)

Hi, all parts are not in place yet but we are doing work on this. There is already a field "alias" in the accounts request, for the moment the value always is null. As soon as we get working data we will fill the alias field with the "nickname" from the web. When that is done we will update the documentation. The field will be named alias so if you want - display the value from alias if there is one and it will start to work as soon as we are done.

I don't have a time estimate for this.

ok. We will implement it as you suggest.

It looks like this works in production now. However the external test system is lacking some parts (the Nordnet web for example) so this part is not really up to speed there.
