Do not get subscription from Get Transaction Detail API

[ Edited ]



Now I am using Get Transaction Detail API (

As my expectiation, when I receive recurringBilling=true in the response, I will also have the subscription information (id and payNum). 

  "getTransactionDetailsResponse": {
    "transaction": {
      "recurringBilling": true,
      "subscription": {
        "id": "123456",
        "payNum": "1",

However, sometimes, there are the exception of this API's responses which does not include any subscription information but recurringBilling=true. I have checked the transactions are approved already and do not recognize any difference between those recurring billings.


I do not know why this issue happen and how to prevent it. Please help.

Thank you so much!

Hi @gusnguyen,


recurringBilling indicator can be set by your system for recurring transactions that are created outside Automated Recurring Billing (ARB), check the Payment Transaction Developer Guide (Transaction Settings -> recurringBilling).
