2021-02: Removing Name Fields from /trades and /loans

API Updates

Name fields disclose personal and static information on every /trades and /loans request. As name information can be easily sourced via our /participants endpoints, we are removing these fields entirely from our /trades and /loans endpoints.

To be specific:

  • The platform_name field will be removed on the GET & POST /trades and /loans endpoint responses.
  • The name field will be removed from the parties{} object on the GET /trades endpoint response (it is not present on the POST response currently).
  • The lender_participant_name and borrower_participant_name fields will be removed from the GET /loans endpoint response.

These changes will be rolled out within February.
