HTTP GET Disablement Date - Updated

by Administrator Administrator ‎04-10-2017 10:29 AM - edited ‎04-13-2017 10:15 AM (1,371 Views)

Update 1: HTTP GET now disabled in sandbox.

 

--------------------

As you are probably aware, HTTP GET methods no longer adhere to current PCI DSS protection requirements. As such, we are updating our sandbox and production environments to no longer allow HTTP GET methods for transaction requests.

 

The HTTP GET disablement dates are as follows:

 

Sandbox: April 12, 2017

Production: May 31, 2017

We are disabling the sandbox well in advance of production to allow you time to test your solutions and ensure you are no longer submitting HTTP GET requests. Any transaction request using HTTP GET that is submitted to the sandbox after May 31st will fail.

 

A change to the HTTP verb from GET to POST will remediate this issue, however, we recommend using this as an opportunity to upgrade your application to use the Authorize.Net API:

http://developer.authorize.net/api/reference/

 

After April 12, 2017, all GET requests to the Sandbox endpoint https://test.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll will fail and will return status code 405 Method Not Allowed.

 

After May 31, 2017, all GET requests to the https://secure.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll and https://secure2.authorize.net/gateway/transact.dll endpoints will fail and will return status code 405 Method Not Allowed.

Payment Nonce Format Change for Accept.js

by Administrator Administrator on ‎02-22-2017 06:34 PM (4,191 Views)

As part of some internal technical improvements to Accept.js, the length of the payment nonce used in Accept.js will be increasing on March 2, 2017. This change shouldn’t pose a problem, as there has never been a specified length for the payment nonce, nor should it be stored anywhere.

 

However, we want to inform developers of this change just in case anyone has made assumptions about the length of the payment nonce and put limitations in their code accordingly.

 

The change is live in the sandbox as of today to allow you to test your solutions ahead of the production change date of March 2nd.
