Getting started: video guides

We have created a number of short videos as a guide for our customers, outlining the core functionality of the Basiq API, and things to consider when integrating it into your application.

Housekeeping: Using the Basiq dashboard

Some useful housekeeping tips covering application management and access provisioning for the rest of your team. Follow along in our dashboard.

Quickstart Steps 1 & 2: Register and authenticate your app

Before you can start making requests to the Basiq API, you will need to register your application via the Basiq dashboard. You will then be able to exchange your new API key to authenticate your application and request an access_token.

Quickstart Step 3: Creating a user

The first place to start with most applications is by creating a user. This is because at Basiq, a User acts a bucket in which we can aggregate financial data.

Quickstart Step 4: Connecting financial institutions

Before we can fetch financial data for a user we first need to connect their banks. We do this by creating connections with financial institutions.

Quickstart Step 5: Fetching aggregated data

Once you have created a user and connected their financial institutions you are able to make request so fetch their aggregated financial data. This step is the last piece of the puzzle when it comes to Basiq's core functionality, and you will have all the pieces of a fully integrated application.

Quickstart: Basiq's Simple UI

Once you have integrated your back end with the Basiq API, you will need to think about your UI. Basiq offers a simple UI component for customers to use in the early stages of their development process to speed up delivery and provide a seamless way for their users to connect their financial institutions.
