Test verification/KYC scenarios

Learn how you can test your error handling flows.

When verifying users on your , the verification checks performed by Adyen can return a range of error messages.

In your test environment, all verification checks are passed by default when the required fields and documents are provided. To test your error handling flow, you can force a scenario where one or more verification checks fail.

This allows you to reproduce an unsuccessful verification flow, including the result and corresponding verification codes. You can then also test the remediating flow to resolve the verification errors.

Before you begin

Make sure that you have API credentials for the Legal Entity Management APIand Configuration API.

Step 1: Make an API request

Using the Legal Entity Management API, you can include a x-requested-verification-code in the header of your API request.

You can use requested verification codes for the following endpoints:

Use a suberror code as your requested verification code. You can include one code at a time in your request header. Requested verification codes can only be used in your test environment.

Step 2: Create account holder

For error tests for legal entities, you need to create an account holder for the legal entity of the organization, individual, or sole proprietorship.

For error tests for documents or transfer instruments, you need to create an account holder for the legal entity who owns the resource.

Step 3: Check verification errors

To get updates about the failed verification and the corresponding error codes, you can:

Make a GET /legalEntities/{id} request, specifying the id in the path.

The response returns the specified requested verification code and associated error codes.

Step 4: Test the remediating flow and resolve verification errors

To simulate the resolution of the verification errors, in your test environment, include the x-requested-verification-code: 0_0001 in the header of your API request.

The requested verification code can be used for the following endpoints in the Legal Entity Management API:

If your error handling is successful, the requested verification code resolves any suberrors associated with the legal entity, document, or transfer instrument.

Make a PATCH /legalEntities/{id} request, specifying the id in the path and x-requested-verification-code: 0_0001in the API header.
