API Authentication (HTTP BASIC)

BREX Enterprise API uses a simple key authentication mechanism over HTTPS - this is safe because your API key is securely encrypted by the SSL channel.

The easiest way to test the API is to use the online live documentation - this is a web page which allows you to test the various API methods and handles all the communications for you, whilst showing you the appropriate URLs.

When you are ready to write code to access the API, you simply pass your API key as an HTTP header called user_key. This key is used by the API to determine who you are, your access rights and your costs - keep this key secret and safe!

Live Documentation

BREX Enterprise API uses a 'live' online documentation method - this allows readers to see the format of the request URLs, any parameters, the actual URLs called and the structure of the responses.

It is synchronized with the API code, so it is always correct, and even allows the API to be driven via the website, which makes testing a much simpler operation than conventional techniques. The information supplied by this live documentation can assist greatly in writing one's own interface to the BREX API. This documentation is available to anyone with an API key and can be accessed at:

Examples of use cases for risk management


Payment merchant verification: payment providers need to verify merchants before providing them access to their platforms. Automation of this process can significantly cut the time required for merchant verification and onboarding and ensure that no losses are occurred as a result of missed transactions.


Risk management solution enhancements: software, platform and cloud based risk management providers can power their offering by adding a feed of official and authoritative company information to existing risk management solutions. This results in a richer offering to their business customers.


Domain name provider checks: domain name providers are required to check the business status of applicants for domain names. This can be fully automated through accessing commercial register data as part of the verification process.


Trading platform enhancements: platforms that bring together suppliers and buyers can enhance their service offering by providing company verification as an integrated part of their solution or by offering such a service to their platform customers.
