Technical Update April 2022
CKI: First CKI clients connected to API Management, by 30 November everyone will be migrated
In March the first CKI clients were connected to API Management (Application Program Interface), a platform that enables collaboration between applications. The advantage for these clients is that they now use certificates and no longer need to use weekly BKR codes. Switching to the new platform is easy – the required documentation is available on the portal for corporate clients. The connection can be tested in the test environment of the client environment (D environment), after which the migration to the production environment is easy. During the migration, clients can use the BKR network environment. This means a message can be sent to BKR via API Management while the answer is collected via the BKR network. By 30 November at the latest, the BKR network will be discontinued and all clients will need to have switched to API Management.
VIS: Extension of VIS test environment
In response to requests from clients, the VIS test environment has been extended with extra test cases. This provides you with more and better options for testing. The new test cases are different types of documents and include the option of entering a date of birth, which was not previously possible. Information on these test cases can be found in the technical documentation for VIS, which can be found on the portal for corporate clients.
VIS: VIS web service via the BKR network to be closed down in two months’ time
On 30 June, we will be closing down our verification identification system (VIS) via the BKR network. From that date, the VIS will only be accessible via the VIS IAM (Identity and Acces Management) web service. Make sure you switch to the VIS IAM web service before that date.
KYC: Extended KYC test environment
At the request of clients and client suppliers, several modifications have been implemented in the KYC test environment. For example, a request for detailed information is always linked to a test case in the test environment. This improves the tests clients can run for their search process. Moreover, the client reference does not need to match and the optional fields do not need to be entered in the test environment. Search runs that do not match the test cases will produce the result ‘no match’ from now on.
VPS: New Management Information (MI) reports available
The VPS (finding place for debts) has been extended with six new MI reports:
• Number of alerts
• Number of alerts and amounts
• Number of alerts for each amount category
• Number of recidives
• Number of contact attempts for each type and part of the day
• Number of contact attempts for each type and age category
These reports can be found in the ‘Dashboard’. For each Management Information (MI) report, a button is available to request the report. More information on the different types of MI reports can be found in the VPS manual, which you will find via the menu option: ‘Vindplaats voor schulden Handleidingen’.
VPS: Alert summary screens modified to improve readability
The screens for single alert summaries and file summaries have been modified to improve the visibility of names of streets and towns. To enable this, the following changes have been made in the screens:
• The columns 'Street' and 'House number' have been adjusted in width
• The name of the 'House number' column has been changed to 'Huisnr'
• The category names have been changed into icons:
