Single Python interface for many Open Banking / PSD2 APIs

Project description

Open Banking aggregation library

This Python library is designed for connecting to a number of Open Banking APIs directly from your code without intermediate aggregation services. The library provides unified interface for interacting with ASPSPs (banks), harmonize data and implements cryptographic functionality needed for interaction with PSD2 APIs, such as mTLS connection using eIDAS QWAC and request signing using eIDAS QSeal certificate.

The library offers 4 API classes:

  • enablebanking.MetaApi provides information about available connectors;
  • enablebanking.AuthApi provides PSU (bank user) authentication and token creation functionality;
  • enablebanking.AispApi provides methods for accessing account information, such as transactions and balances, on behalf of a PSU;
  • enablebanking.PispApi provides methods for initiating and conforming payment requests.

The same calls and data structures are used for interacting with different banks, but for each bank enablebanking.ApiClient shall be initialised with own settings and connectors' meta information shall be used to assure appropriate use of the methods.

Please note that the connector modules are not included into this package and shall be downloaded separately. For more information refer to the Installation section.

This Python package is generated by the enable:Banking SDK generator using Swagger Codegen project.

The interfaces are based on STET PSD2 specification, but have been modified and extended in order to support usage scenarious beyond the original specification.


Python 3.4+





It's the easiest to install the package using the Python Package Installer:

pip install enablebanking-api

In order to download a connector module you have to submit the following request to website.

curl -X POST \
    -F 'connector=Nordea' \
    -F 'environment=sandbox' \
    -F 'language=python' \
    -F '' \

List of connectors is available here. Do not use ConnectorSetting postfix in the connector field when submitting the request, i.e. use just Nordea instead of NordeaConnectorSettings.

Download link will be sent to the email address you provide.


The following code shows how to initialize API client for Nordea, authenticate user and retrieve list of user's accounts.

import enablebanking
from enablebanking.connectors import NordeaConnector

# Creating API client for Nordea
client = enablebanking.ApiClient(
        'sandbox': True,
        'consentId': None,
        'accessToken': None,
        'refreshToken': None,
        'redirectUri': 'https://your.domain/callback',
        'country': 'FI',
        'clientId': 'your-nordea-api-client-id',
        'clientSecret': 'your-nordea-api-client-secret',
        'signKeyPath': '/path/to/eidas-key.pem',

# Creating authentication API accessor
auth_api = enablebanking.AuthApi(client)

# Getting authentication URL, which the user shall visit
auth = auth_api.get_auth(
    state='test', # state to pass to redirect URL

print('User authentication URL:', auth.url)

# Extracting authorization code from the redirect URL
code = auth_api.parse_redirect_url(
    # Using hardcoded value here. In reality redirect URL shall be read

# Making user token
token = auth_api.make_token(

# Creating account information API accessor. Using same client instance already
# holding user token. In stateless web app client likely needs to be re-created
# with a token from the previous step.
aisp_api = enablebanking.AispApi(client)

# Retrieving list of user's accounts
acc_data = aisp_api.get_accounts()

for acc in acc_data.accounts:
    print('Account IBAN:', acc.account_id.iban)
