Method: echo

Echos back a string sent from the client.

If the endpoint encounters an error while processing the request, the response from this endpoint will be of type ErrorResponse.

Responses to this query may be empty if this method does not return an HTTP 200. The response body is empty in situations where an ErrorResponse with a clear description could be used to help an attacker understand the payment integrator account identifier of other integrators. In these situations, where either the signing key doesn't match, the payment integrator identifier was not found, or the encryption key was unknown, this method will return an HTTP 404 with an empty body. If the request signature could be verified, additional information regarding the error will be returned in the response body.

An example request looks like:


{
  "requestHeader": {
    "protocolVersion": {
      "major": 2
    },
    "requestId": "G1MQ0YERJ0Q7LPM",
    "requestTimestamp": {
      "epochMillis": "1481899949606"
    },
    "paymentIntegratorAccountId": "InvisiCashUSA_USD"
  },
  "clientMessage": "Client echo message"
}

An example success response looks like:


{
  "responseHeader": {
    "responseTimestamp": {
      "epochMillis":"1481899950236"
    }
  },
  "clientMessage": "Client echo message",
  "serverMessage": "Debug ID 12345"
}
