Consent Manager

After a certain period, bank customers may need to view, update, or revoke consents they have granted to API consumer applications to access account data. Consent Manager is an application in WSO2 Open Banking that supports all these requirements and manages consents.


You can use the /admin endpoint in Consent REST API to retrieve consent details and customize Consent Manager. For example,

curl -X GET "https://localhost:9446/api/openbanking/consent/admin/search?consentIDs=12345&clientIDs=5678&consentTypes=accounts&consentStatuses=authorized&userIDs=user1&fromTime=12012020&toTime=12012021&limit=10&offset=0" -H "accept: application/json"


  • Bank officers with the CustomerCareOfficerRole role and bank customers can access the Consent Manager.
  • Customer Care Officers have privileges such as Advanced Search options and the ability to view the consents of all bank customers.

    priority = 1
