Tokenization is only valuable to an organization if the tokens are useful. While cookie-cutter...
Changelog: June 2022
Capture individual card data with separate fields using Elements
Developers want more control over their user experience when collecting credit or debit cards with Basis Theory. We heard you and introduced three new Element types to allow you to individually collect and interact with each card property: Number, Expiration Date, and CVC. The new feature gives you complete control and flexibility over how you use card inputs in your application.
Expanded Token Aliasing
In some situations, data needs to retain its format or length because it needs to pass existing validation requirements, meet data formatting of internal systems or fit in a database schema that is hard to change. This is why we’ve extended our Aliases beyond UUIDs, allowing developers to preserve token identifier’s context and length using our Expressions language. The update will enable organizations to dynamically select the data they want to use for these properties, add static characters, or even pull non-sensitive data from any token property.
Previously, our Proxy endpoint enabled our customers to simply forward data to third parties without the data touching their systems.
This inflexibility drove us to launch our new pre-defined Proxies. These Proxies inherit all of the Expression language benefits of our existing /proxy call and Reactors to process or mutate data on both the request and response. The update provides new ways to tokenize sensitive data before it enters your systems.
Check our guide on removing sensitive data from your request.
