Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is SBAB's Developer Portal?
SBAB's Developer Portal is an open API platform that lets you explore the various products of household finance offered by SBAB.
Q: What data does the SBAB Development Portal contain?
Our sandbox environment contains static test data in the same structure that is used in production. You are free to test all endpoints available and the documentation covers both sandbox as well as production environment.
Q: How do I test APIs?
In our get started-section, you will find the information you need to start use the APIs in our sandbox environment.
Q: Do I need to create an account?
No. With the help of a Sandbox Authorization Token (aka Bearer token), which is sent to your email at your request, you can test the sandbox without creating an account.
Q: Is it associated with any costs to use the SBAB Development Portal?
No, it’s free! But please note that some APIs may incur a fee to allow access to the production environment.
Q: How do I get access to production data?
Please contact us for further dialog/access to production environment. Please also note that access to production data via the SBAB Bank API is a strictly B2B matter and requires that the applicant represents a corporate with relevant permission from the National Competent Authority (in Sweden: Finansinspektionen). There are currently no opportunities for private persons to develop services based on the SBAB Bank API.
Q: Can I use my bearer token in the production environment?
No. In the production environment, you use system users with client credentials. Read more about this under the auth section in the documentation.
Q: Something seems to be wrong with my bearer token, I get a 401 Error: unauthorized
- Make sure that you send in the complete token including Bearer ('Bearer xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxx-xxxxxxxx') in the authorization
- Only send in the Bearer once in you call
