Create your enterprise's sandbox external account


Before you can simulate transfers in Momentum's sandbox, you need to create an external account with dummy information and link it to your enterprise id.

Create your sandbox external account

Use the POST /external/accounts endpoint

This external account will be used only for sandbox testing, so instead of passing real account information, you can pass dummy information.

  • Generate a unique id for the account and pass it in account_reference_id
  • Set customer_reference_id to your enterprise id, which you can see on the Portal's homepage (ex: My Company would have an enterprise id of mycompany)
  • Set customer_resource_type to "enterprise"
curl --request POST \
     --url \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Authorization: Bearer {auth_token} ' \
     --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     --header 'Orum-Version: v2022-09-21' \
     --header 'X-API-Key: {SANDBOX API KEY} ' \
     --data '
     "account_reference_id": "7dqf9d88-92ydalme",
     "customer_reference_id": "mycompany",
     "customer_resource_type": "enterprise",
     "account_type": "checking",
     "account_number": "2391092239471",
