Detailed Plan Features

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 include:


Client or supplier onboarding: automated retrieval of company vitals and commercial register extracts enable a rapid business verification based on the official source data. E.g. pre-fill register number, company name, address, status, managing director, etc based on the data filed with the commercial register.


Regulatory required compliance checks: automated regular checks of the complete customer base including access to lodged financials to comply with regulatory stress tests and to remediate business partner data stored in the internal systems.


Payment merchant verification: payment providers need to verify merchants before providing access to their platforms to them. 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.


Customized solutions: for specific customer requirements or inhouse applications, we also offer customized solutions to improve efficiency or add value to workflows or processes. For more information contact a Solution Specialist
