Request body

The request body contains data with the following structure:

JSON representation
{
  "requestHeader": {

  },
  "paymentIntegratorAccountId": string,
  "paymentLookupCriteria": {
    object (PaymentLookupCriteria)
  },
  "requestOriginator": {
    object (RequestOriginator)
  },
  "amount": {
    object (Amount)
  },
  "fraudClassification": {
    object (FraudClassification)
  },
  "reasonCode": enum (PaymentDisputeReasonCode),
  "rawResult": {
    object (RawResult)
  },
  "refundIssuer": enum (RefundIssuer)
}
Fields
requestHeader

object (RequestHeader)

REQUIRED: Common header for all requests.

paymentIntegratorAccountId

string

REQUIRED: The payment integrator account identifier that identifies the caller and associated contractual constraints for this interaction.

paymentLookupCriteria

REQUIRED: Criteria indicating the payment that is to be looked up for this inquiry.

The integrator can choose to give Google a raw code. For example, a credit card gateway (the integrator) may use this field to communicate to Google the exact chargeback code that was received from the VISA network. In that case, the scope would be "visa" and the rawCode would be whatever the VISA network returned (example: "10.4").
