❗️

Requirements

  • 3DSecure enabled on your PowerBoard account. Please reach out to our team if you need help.

🚧

Before you begin

When sending requests to PowerBoard’s API, you must provide either a Public Key and/or Secret Key depending on your use case.

API keys are generated via PowerBoard’s Merchant Dashboard, in three easy steps:

  1. Login to the PowerBoard Merchant Dashboard.
  2. Click on the ‘My Company’ link and proceed to the ‘API and Security’ heading.
  3. On screen, you’ll see both Public and Secret Key required to send requests to PowerBoard’s API.

🚧

3D Secure and Content-security Policy

3D Secure 2.0 uses an iFrame implementation that requires the use of the ACS URL from the issuing bank. As the list of all possible URLs is constantly changing and varying amongst issuers there isn't a strict CSP directive that can handle this across 3DSecure for each card issuer.

If you are utilising 3d Secure within your PowerBoard integration, we recommend you utilise frame-src *as the directive within your Content-Security Policy to whitelist all possible 3D Secure URLs.

You can find further information regarding our Content-Security Policy guidelines here

Integration Steps

Step 1) Initialise PowerBoard Card Form.

  1. Embed the PowerBoard Client-SDK in your page.
  2. Create a container for the card form to render.
  3. Construct the Widget within an asynchronous function.
  4. Point the Widget environment to 'preproduction_cba'.
  5. Apply styling via setStyles and setTexts methods.
  6. Call the '.load' method.
<script src="https://widget.preproduction.powerboard.commbank.com.au/sdk/latest/widget.umd.min.js"></script>
 
<div id="widget-ccform"></div>
(async function () {
var htmlWidget = new cba.HtmlWidget('#widget-ccform', 'PUBLIC_KEY', 'GATEWAY_ID');
htmlWidget.setEnv("preproduction_cba");
htmlWidget.setStyles({background_color: "#FFFFFF", border_color: "#ced4da", button_color: "#134e21"});
htmlWidget.setTexts({submit_button: "My Awesome Widget!"});
htmlWidget.load();
})()

Step 2) Implement 3DSecure container and set operations.

Create a second container for 3DSecure operations.

(Referred to as 'widget-3dsecure' in this guide)

<script src="https://widget.preproduction.powerboard.commbank.com.au/sdk/latest/widget.umd.min.js"></script>
 
<div id="widget-ccform"></div>
 
<div id="widget-3dsecure"></div>

Instruct your integration to await the 'finish' event and consume 'payment_source'.

Invoke 'api' method to allow for communication to PowerBoard charge-related endpoints.

Configure the 'Canvas3ds' class to render 3D-Secure's Access Control Server (ACS) in your second container.

❗️

IMPORTANT

It is recommended that you create a variable for easy management of the '_3ds.token'. This token is required to perform the financial transaction post 3DSecure Pre-Authentication.

Call the '.load' method to initialise the 3DSecure form.

(async function() {
 
        var htmlWidget = new cba.HtmlWidget('#widget-ccform', 'PUBLIC_KEY', 'GATEWAY_ID');
 
        htmlWidget.setEnv("preproduction_cba");
 
        htmlWidget.setStyles({background_color: "#FFFFFF", border_color: "#ced4da", button_color: "#134e21"});
 
        htmlWidget.setTexts({submit_button: "Submit!"});
 
        htmlWidget.load();
 
        var {payment_source} = await htmlWidget.on('finish');
 
        var preAuthResp = await new cba.Api('YOUR_PUBLIC_KEY').setEnv('preproduction_cba').charge().preAuth({
              amount: 100, //Your Pre-Authorisation amount here
              currency: 'AUD',
              token: payment_source,
            });
         
         var canvas = new cba.Canvas3ds('#widget-3dsecure', preAuthResp._3ds.token);
          
         canvas.load();
})()

Step 2a) 3D-Secure Status Handling

PowerBoard's SDK will also provide a 'status' field within the preAuth() API response, see below workflows accordingly:

❗️

IMPORTANT

The below is only based on suggestions and should be relayed accordingly to your relevant business stakeholders.

Status NameSummarySuggested Workflow
pre-authenticated3D-Secure authentication was successful, token id generated and passed back to your applicationProceed with ingesting the token id and process transaction accordingly.
not_authenticated3D-Secure authentication was rejected and/or declined.Do not proceed with the transaction.
authentication_not_supported3D-Secure authentication is not supported by customer’s card issuing bank.

Customer's card is not enrolled in 3D-Secure.
As per your business requirements, this transaction will NOT carry 3DSecure benefits as per EMV 3DS - CommBank.
pre_authentication_pending3D-Secure authentication has not been completed and in a pending state.Retry 3D Secure authentication, if still pending, route to authentication_not_supported workflow.

Step 3) Event Handling

PowerBoard allows for event handling through the Client-SDK, see below event types, examples and recommendations.

Event NameDescriptionExampleExample Event Data
chargeAuthSuccess3DSecure Authentication was successful.canvas.on("chargeAuthSuccess", function(data) {
console.log(data);
});
{
"event": "chargeAuthSuccess",
"purpose": "secure3d",
"message_source": "widget.paydock",
"ref_id": "",
"widget_id": "f0676880-130a-49ca-8109-0ebbdf944f90",
"charge_3ds_id": "f0676880-130a-49ca-8109-0ebbdf944f90",
"status": "authenticated"
}
chargeAuthReject3DSecure Authentication was not successful.canvas.on("chargeAuthReject", function(data) {
console.log(data);
});
{
"event": "chargeAuthReject",
"purpose": "secure3d",
"message_source": "widget.paydock",
"ref_id": "",
"widget_id": "d88db3dd-8c9b-43e6-a6e6-79ff7e8196d6",
"charge_3ds_id": "d88db3dd-8c9b-43e6-a6e6-79ff7e8196d6",
"status": "not_authenticated"
}

Step 4) Sending your transaction to PowerBoard after 3D-Secure Pre-Authentication.

Use the charge_3ds_id returned from the chargeAuthSuccess event in your API Charge request.

📘

Go to the charge endpoint page.

    }
}

Once you have submitted your API Charge request, PowerBoard will respond accordingly with a 201 Created.

📘

The response should be stored against your database or relevant payments ecosystem.


3D Secure using a Vault token

Step 1) Follow the above steps using the JS library to create the PowerBoard widget.

Use the above intialiation steps to create the PowerBoard card forms using our JavaScript Library.

Step 2) Use the OTT returned from the widget to generate a vault token

📘

Note

Creating a customer using our customers endpoint will generate a vault token along with a customer account. We recommend using this if you intend to create a customer with the tokenised card details.

Use the payment_source returned from the Widget in your API Token request, see below example:

API Endpointhttps://api.preproduction.powerboard.commbank.com.au/v1/vault/payment_sources
HTTP Method
POST
Headersx-user-secret-key- POWERBOARD_SECRET_KEY - This is your PowerBoard API Secret Key.
Content-Type - application/json - Content-Type will always be application/json.
Request Parameterstoken - string - payment source string returned from the widget following the "finish" event. Example: "payment_source": "251985e6-a368-4168-8e1a-bfb30c3e4bab"

Once you have submitted your API Tokenisation request, PowerBoard will respond accordingly with a 201 Created. The response should be stored against your database or relevant payments ecosystem.

{
    "token": "251985e6-a368-4168-8e1a-bfb30c3e4bab"
}

{
    "status": 201,
    "error": null,
    "resource": {
        "type": "payment_source",
        "data": {
            "type": "card",
            "_source_ip_address": "54.86.50.139",
            "expire_month": 1,
            "expire_year": 2023,
            "card_name": "John  Citizen",
            "card_number_last4": "4242",
            "card_number_bin": "42424242",
            "card_scheme": "visa",
            "ref_token": "cus_hyyau7dpojJttR",
            "status": "active",
            "created_at": "2021-08-05T07:04:25.974Z",
            "company_id": "5d305bfbfac31b4448c738d7",
            "vault_token": "c90dbe45-7a23-4f26-9192-336a01e58e59",
            "updated_at": "2021-08-05T07:05:56.035Z"
        }
    }
}

Step 3) Make a request to the 3DS endpoint using the vault token

You can now use the 3DS endpoint to initialise a 3d Secure pre-authorisation using the vault token you generated in the previous step.

This will return a 3DS token that is required to render the 3DS iFrame to the customer.

Sample request

Once you have submitted your API charge request, PowerBoard will respond accordingly with a 201 Created. The response should be stored against your database or relevant payments ecosystem. The resource._3ds.token will need to be captured and used in the Canvas object of the widget to render the canvas.

        }
    }
}

Step 4) Use the 3DS token generated to render the 3DS canvas in the PowerBoard widget.

Using the 3DS Token captured from the previous step, initialise and render the 3DS canvas to the customer.

<script src="https://widget.preproduction.powerboard.commbank.com.au/sdk/latest/widget.umd.min.js"></script>

<script>
  var canvas = new cba.Canvas3ds('#widget-3dsecure', resource._3ds.token);
